Letter from a Mother

My son was stabbed to death on March 30th of this year. He was only 16. Killed by a 18yr old who went to the same school. My son was a asset to the community and a great football player, but even a better son and friend.If you google it you will see all kinds of stories about it.

Oshawa will never be the same. Suspect is in custody charged with 2nd degree murder. I wish I had of came across this website months ago, but I'm sure he can be added to all the sad lives lost.

Trial Closed: Jose Hierro Saez

A drive-by shooting that occurred back in June 2007 taking the life of Jose Hierro Saez (left) has now come to a close. Anthony Grant, 24 and Devon Vivian, 23 (below) have been found guilty in the brazen daylight shooting of Saez who was shot while driving with 4 other friends on John Garland Blvd.

Both men are also facing 4 counts of attempted murder as they shot into the vehicle which had 4 other occupants.
Grant and Vivian flew off to Jamaica thinking they could get away with murder but were extradited to Toronto to stand trial. The jury was deadlocked as one individual did not agree both individuals were guilty. But after further deliberation and many notes to the judge they had finally reached a verdict. Also it is said the holdout jurors husband wanted his wife at his bedside in the hospital. I'll bet you an appeal will be filed and they'll say the holdout juror probably decided guilty because of her frustrated husband and just wanted to get it over with. I'll keep you updated.
Young and dumb boys making stupid decisions before thinking about the consequences. It's sad to see at 24 and 23, Anthony Grant and Devon Vivian decided this was the route to go in life.

The suspect is described as:

Peel police indicate the victim had been involved in a basketball game inside the community centre, when three suspects entered the centre. Ducas's sister stated the following occurred that led to his death. “He said, ‘Why are you kicking my ball?’ And when he said that, they pulled the gun out, and he said, ‘Could you just cool, just stop, chill?’ And after they butted him with the gun, from my understanding, he said, ‘You’re really gonna do me like that?’ And they just pulled the trigger. Those were his last words. He pleaded and they still did it. They kill over anything – nothing at all.” This is just sad.
