Product Information

Roch "Moïse" Thériault was the leader of a small religious group based near Burnt River, Ontario, Canada. Between 1977 and 1989 he held sway over as many as 12 adults and 22 children. Theriault was arrested for assault in 1989, and convicted of murder in 1993. During his reign, Thériault mutilated several members. He once used a meat cleaver to chop off the hand and part of the arm of Gabrielle Lavallée, one of his concubines, also removing eight of her teeth. He was accused of castrating a 2-year-old boy, as well as at least one adult male, and of murdering his legal spouse, Solange Boilard, by disembowelment, purportedly while trying to perform surgery on her, in 1988

Roch Thériault was found dead near his cell, February 26, 2011, at Dorchester Penitentiary, in New Brunswick. He was 63 years old. Theriault's death is believed to be the result of an altercation with his cell mate Matthew Gerrard MacDonald, who has been charged with the killing.

This item is a small abstract painting, approximately 3"X4" on canvas affixed to a heavy card stock greeting card.  The painting is signed in full on the back (the inside of the card).  On the right side of the inside is a message the recipient wrote to send the card to someone else. 

The canvas painting nor Theriault's signaure are prints. This ultra-rare piece is an all original from the now deceased Roch 'Moise' Theriault, the card with painting was originally obtained from Theriault by a friend of his who then passed it on to us.
