Homicide #24/#25-Andy James/Brandon Ramdeen
A jealous ex-boyfriend couldn't stand seeing his ex-girl on the dance floor with her new man and decided to take matters into his own hands. As the killings in Toronto begin to reach an all new high, we've lost yet another black man. Both Andy James(pictured), 26 and Brandon Ramdeen, 27 had attended a boat cruise this past weekend and Andy was dancing with his girlfriend when several men approached them and began to harass and touch the girl.
Once the boat docked at Polson Pier, security had kicked out one of the men who tried to start a fight with Andy. As Andy went to his car, one of the suspects jumped out and stabbed him in the gut, when Brandon tried to intervene to help his friend, he too was stabbed.
Andy, who ran a home renovation business was said by friends to be a good guy who would never hurt nobody. His life was taken for no reason.
Yesterday, Edwin Modeste, 37, and Kimron Bengy, 19, both of Toronto, were arrested and charged in separate second-degree murders.
