‘I wish … you find yourselves exactly like I am now’: Woman who was paralyzed in 2010 botched robbery dies

The woman who paralyzed after being shot in an SAQ store in Baie d’Urfé in 2010 has died.

Montreal police Constable Danny Richer said Friday morning Hélène Leduc died in recent days.

An SAQ employee, Leduc became a quadriplegic after being shot in the neck at point-blank range during a botched robbery on Oct. 18, 2010.

The coroner will perform an autopsy, and if her death is linked to her injury in 2010, the investigation into her attempted murder will be upgraded to a murder investigation.

No one was charged with a crime in connection with the case, though Richer said the investigation is ongoing.

In 2012, Leduc gave an interview that appeared on YouTube. Lying in a hospital bed in the health facility she called home, Leduc told how her life changed completely in a single second.

The last words she heard before being shot: “Turn around, get on your knees, we will not hurt you.”

She told the interviewer that she hoped to meet her assailants “face-to-face, eye-to-eye.”

“I would tell them, ‘I wish you only one thing: that one day you find yourselves exactly like I am now, nothing more, nothing less.”
