A 19-year-old has been charged with three counts of second-degree murder in connection with the stabbing deaths of his mother, father, and grandmother in a Montreal neighborhood.
The victims were found with multiple stab wounds and the suspect was arrested at the scene, covered in blood.
Among the victims were the suspect’s grandmother, a neighbor, and a friend.
The suspect, Arturo Gallano, has a history of mental health issues and was reportedly receiving medication and seeing a social worker.
The suspect’s grandmother, who was described as generous and kind, had plans to move into a condo and start a new chapter in her life.
The suspect’s next court appearance is scheduled for April 11th.
The tragedy has left the community in shock and raises questions about the adequacy of mental health support for those in need.
