Searching a meaning to the Marc Lepine mania, analysts considered more closely the origins of ancient legends and their function as a way to seek a deeper meaning for the momentarily unexplainable. The events of December 1989 might contain all the necessary elements to build such a legend: "Polytechnique" as a brutal unexplained massacre, Marc as an "iconic shooter", the holy mission mentioned by the murderer himself, and the introduction of a spiritual dimension and the phenomenon of the killer saint. Sometimes, nothing more is needed to create a legend that lasts.

Lavishly illustrated, a "must read" and a "must see". Interesting theories and parallels with the Boondock saints
