Man charged with federal hate crimes in Hanukkah stabbing
A New York man has been charged after committing anti-Semitic hate crimes.
“I pull up footage of a tall, big guy with a huge knife in his hand,” Brianna Lamane told reporters on October 5. “It wasn’t concealed… He had it, just holding it in his hand and trying to get through our front door.”
In 2014, Matthew de Grood fatally stabbed five people at a Calgary house party. He was originally charged with five counts of first-degree murder but was found not criminally responsible in 2016 after a two-week trial.
Police have now confirmed that a body found on Highway 410 was a result of suicide and have further clarified the relation of this death with those of a fatal double stabbing in Brampton.
