FUGITIVE CAUGHT IN FLORIDA
After circulating “wanted” posters and distributing descriptions nationally in their hunt for Pierre Carrenard, 35, a fugitive suspect in the murder of his ex-girl friend’s mother and her small dog, they traced him to Florida.
Carrenard, 35, was picked up at 6 a.m. Saturday, August 20, according to Detective Bernard Gifford, an NYPD spokesman.
“Detectives from the 63rd Precinct Detective Squad tracked the suspect down and apprehended him in a friend’s apartment,” Gifford said, adding that the fugitive surrendered without incident.
“Now we’re working on having him extradited to New York, which will probably take place later this week.” he said.
The grisly stabbings took place when Carrenard went on a rampage inside the East 43rd Street home of his girlfriend, Francois MacDaly, 25, who was not home when Carrenard called and threatened her mother, Esperance Labidou, 53, eventually entering the home and allegedly stabbing her and her tiny Chihuahua mix dog with a knife.
Carrenard had broken up with MacDaly a few months ago and the suspect had been allegedly stalking her ever since and she took out an order of protection against him, sources said.
When MacDaly couldn’t contact her mother, she called her 16-year-old cousin to check on her and the young girl apparently came upon the scene as it was taking place. She was also slashed but managed to escape and called police She was treated at Kings County Hospital and pronounced in stable condition.
Since the murder, Carrenard has been on the loose, narrowly eluding police on a number of occasions, according to reports.
