Unlike in Prosser's case, Dehm claimed the SPVM did not intervene in a follow-up comment she posted.
"I guess they realized everyone was spreading the word about what they were doing," she said.
A spokesperson for the SPVM told MTL Blog that its moderators are sometimes required to remove comments on its social media platforms — specifically, when they are off-topic or have been uploaded several times, as per its 'Netiquette' policy.
"The specialized teams of the SPVM [...] work for the well-being of vulnerable people, including those who find themselves in a situation of homelessness, at the time of enforcing curfew measures," the spokesperson said.
"Where possible, the police will also accompany people experiencing homelessness to the appropriate resources so that they can receive the help and support they need."
Prosser said the SPVM's actions contradict its "Netiquette" policy, as her first comment was just posted once and was respectful.
"They are effectively trying to sweep it under the rug, and as a taxpaying citizen, I have an absolute right to question whether or not the SPVM is doing their job properly," she said.
Other Montrealers joined the discussion, asking the SPVM to justify its actions of deleting Prosser's initial comment.
Authorities have charged 36-year-old François Pelletier with first-degree murder following the stabbing death of Romane Bonnier, a 24-year-old Montreal woman, on Tuesday, October 19.
The SPVM told MTL Blog on October 20 that the victim and a then-unnamed suspect used to be roommates, but Audrey Roy Cloutier, spokesperson for the Directeur des poursuites criminelles et pénales (DPCP), could not confirm the nature of the relationship between Bonnier and Pelletier.
Cloutier explained, however, that a document detailing the nature of the charge states that the crime is suspected to have occurred "in the context of domestic violence."
On Tuesday, October 19, a 24-year-old Montreal woman was stabbed on rue Aylmer, near Milton, which is near McGill University.
SPVM spokesperson Véronique Dubuc told MTL Blog that there were "many witnesses" and police quickly arrived on the scene after receiving a 9-1-1 call about an altercation between a man and a woman on the street.
Witnesses were allegedly able to see the man stabbing the victim with a sharp object, as it was in broad daylight, taking place around 4:30 p.m.
When police arrived, the suspect was still on the scene and was arrested on the spot. The suspect is currently in custody.
The victim was transported to the hospital and was "severely injured on her upper body." At the hospital, she was declared dead.
According to Montreal police, the victim and suspect used to be roommates.
A 16-year-old was fatally stabbed in Montreal on Monday, police say.
SPVM spokesperson Julien Lévesque confirmed that police received a 9-1-1 call around 3 p.m. on Monday, in which they were informed that an individual had been "injured by a sharp object near a sports centre on Van Horne Avenue."
The incident took place in the Côte-Des-Neiges—Notre-Dame-De-Grâce borough.
Police say an altercation occurred involving a group of teens outside of Mile End high school, according to CBC News.
The victim was soon transferred to the hospital in a "critical state," where he ended up succumbing to his wounds.
Lévesque said this is the 25th homicide in Montreal this year.
