One woman dead, one man injured after Toronto double stabbing
The police are investigating the incident as a homicide, marking Toronto's 62nd homicide of 2020.
“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.
