I was the closest friend of the deceased. Could you send the Czech girl who was with him my contact info please? I just want to know exactly how he died to clear my mind. She can send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
My son Patrick Dupuis -Dufresne was 22 years old. The passenger is in critical condition in a coma at the hospital. We , Patrick’s parents have been given the exact news by his classmates in Taipei.
The Canadian, Quebec police told us on the 24th that it was a car crash.
The Canadian, Ottawa consulate have difficulties getting the correct information.
The Taiwan police now want an autopsy on Patrick’s body and we his parents are waiting for the Canadian government to make it safe to go there and return if charges are somehow pinned on our son. We want to bring him home.
The Polyteque University of Montreal have steered us to the Ottawa consulate but the consulate are misinformed or not informed.
I’m sorry for your tragic loss. I sourced this story from two Chinese language media sources on the night it happened. I’m sorry there was so little information available. I’ve been on vacation the last few days, but if I find any more information published in the Chinese language news, I will update it here and let you know.
What is the Czech girl name? I am very worried.
