The Trial of Télesphore Gagnon

Quebec City, 24 (D. N. C.) – Yesterday afternoon testimony began in the trial of Télesphore Gagnon. Doctors Marois and Lafond were heard and they reiterated, in all aspects, the statements provided at the trial of the Gagnon woman, concerning little Aurore Gagnon’s injuries. Both doctors stated that the child’s wounds were quite evident to the naked eye, particularly the wound on her head. Dr. Marois believed that her head wound was at least 15 days or 3 weeks old.
