According to Montreal Gazette, the warrant was issued on Thursday out of the Montreal courthouse. Jayne Ellen Heideck, 42, of Kelowna, B.C., is accused of five different criminal charges in the warrant including arson with a disregard for human life, breaking and entering and arson by negligence.
The building was occupied at the time by Dr. Brassard and patients. The fire was extinguished before emergency responders arrived by the building’s automatic sprinkler system. It is unknown if the fire was set in a room where an operation was taking place. All of those who were in the building evacuated safely.
Some reports have suggested that Jayne Ellen Heideck is transgender and have quoted unverifiable sources indicating that she was dissatisfied about a procedure performed at the clinic.
UPDATE 6/3/2016 RCMP spokesman Cpl. Ryan Fehler said Jayne Ellen Heideck, 42, was taken into custody Monday morning according to CBC
As we suggested in our original report there remains a possibility that the fire at the Centre métropolitain de chirurgie (CMC) might have been set by an unsatisfied transgender client.
