10th update on 2 Boys and a Python

Accdg. to the latest New Brunswick provincial news, a $175000 commitment payment towards a Campbellton playground will be built in honor of 4 year old Noah and 6 year old  Connor Barthe who were found dead in August 2013 inside a Campbellton apartment where they were staying for a sleepover. The apartment was located on top of a reptile store.They died from strangulation to a 45 lb African rock python which escaped from its glass tank through a vent and slithered through a ventilation pipe and somehow reached the 2 boys while they were both sleeping.

A campground is also being built to the city’s waterfront as well with a dog park and playground planned to be built together alongside.

The playground should be in place by next summer.

Meanwhile, Jean-Claude Savoie,the former reptile shop owner  and now based in Montreal,Quebec has been charged with criminal negligence causing death after the 2 boys died in his apartment. He’s due to appear on Nov. 24,2015 for a preliminary hearing. If convicted, he could face a maximum life sentence.
