    Triple homicide in Lethbridge, Alberta

    http://globalnews.ca/news/1965215/po...in-lethbridge/

    LETHBRIDGE ? Police in Lethbridge are investigating the city?s first-ever triple homicide.

    Officers were called to 230 McGill Boulevard W. around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday by a concerned neighbour.

    When they arrived, police found one woman and two men dead at the scene.


    Police haven?t released the names of any of the victims, but neighbours tell Global News they are 27-year-old Kyle Devine, his girlfriend 24-year-old Clarissa English and her brother 18-year-old Dakota English. (pictures in gallery below)

    Investigators believe all three were killed in a targeted attack, and say there?s no evidence to suggest any risk to the public.

    Officers confirmed they have been called to the home previously in the past.

    Crisis support workers are providing support to family members of the victims as well as after-care for first responders and investigators.

    Investigators will ?continue to work around the clock to bring the person or persons responsible for this crime to justice,? according to a release.

    Police say no subjects are in custody.

    Good jokb finding all those links, NOTHING came up on my searches. There's a gallery of scene pix at the below.

    Lethbridge police are?investigating a triple homicide after discovering the?bodies of three adults?inside a home early Tuesday morning.

    Officers responded?to the home?at 230 McGill Boulevard W. at 2:30 a.m. after receiving a call from a concerned neighbour.?Two?men, aged 27 and 18, and a 24-year-old woman were discovered?dead at the ?violent scene.?

    A friend identified the victims as Dakota English,?Kyle Devine and Clarissa English.

    Deputy Chief Colin Catonio told reporters that?investigators believe the three victims?were killed in a targeted attack, but no arrests have been made.

    Still, he said police do not believe there is a risk to the public.

    A neighbour who declined to be identified said there had been trouble at the home, a unit in a social housing complex, two or three weeks ago. She said a woman showed up at the apartment unit and began kicking the door. When no one answered, she kicked the window, smashing it open.

    The neighbour said the woman was screaming, but she could not make out exactly what was being said. The neighbour, who called police, suspected the disturbance was over drugs.

    In the past, she?said, people had knocked on her door in the middle of the night looking for a female resident of?the unit that is now a crime scene. Early Tuesday morning, she said, she was awoken by the glare of police lights, but she hadn?t heard anything unusual through the night.

    Joan Payne, who lives nearby, said she didn?t know anyone who lives at the unit but she knows there has been trouble there before.

    ?It?s very sad and very scary,? Payne said. ?You want to help these people. I want to help them be happier and have happier lives. It?s a terrible tragedy.?



    Search and rescue crews assisted police in their hunt?for evidence across a big swath of McGill Boulevard, which had been cordoned off by police tape?since the early morning.

    Crisis support workers have been helping?loved ones?of victims and will provide care for first responders and other investigators, police said.

    In an afternoon update on the investigation, police said in a statement they will ?continue to work around the clock to bring the person or persons responsible for this crime to justice.?

    Catonio said police would remain at the home?for two or three days canvassing the scene in search of evidence.

    ?This is going to be a very long investigation,? he said.

    Police have asked residents to avoid the area while the investigation continues.

    Sorry for bumping old threads but thought I would look through all the articles I have posted and search for updates:

    https://calgary.ctvnews.ca/lethbridg...rder-1.3751728

    A sentence was handed down on Tuesday to a man who pleaded guilty to a triple murder in Lethbridge that happened almost three years ago.

    Austin Vielle, 24, was charged with three counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of Kyle Devine, Clarissa English and Dakota English and his trial was scheduled to begin this week.

    On Monday, Vielle, shackled and dressed in a blue, prison jumpsuit, softly pleaded guilty to each of three counts of second-degree murder.

    Vielle knew all three of the victims, who were found stabbed to death at their west Lethbridge townhouse in April of 2015.

    According to an agreed statement of facts, Dakota English received 57 cuts and stab wounds to his neck, face, head and body, his sister Clarissa had 103 and Kyle Devine suffered 84 cuts and stab wounds.

    Five knives and a meat cleaver were found at the crime scene and DNA on blood-stained clothing matched that of the vitims.

    Court heard that all three victims were heavily intoxicated at the time and that Vielle was also intoxicated and claimed to have no recollection of what happened.

    A number of victim impact statements were read in court and family of the victims say they are struggling to deal with their grief.

    “It's a big relief, I’m really glad that it’s going to be done in one day but it still doesn't change anything,” said Chantelle English. “I looked at him straight in the eyes and he had a blank stare. He had no remorse, he had a blank stare on his face.”

    Wendy English said the loss of her two grandchildren, Clarissa and Dakota, is like a ‘wicked nightmare.’

    “It has been a hard two and a half year process. I guess we’re just all anxious to move on, but I know, they say closure, I don't know if there'll ever be a closure.”

    Kyle's father Allen Devine, who lost another son ten years ago, told the court that there is no justice.

    "I just have to miss my sons and live with the pain every day,” he said.

    Vielle was sentenced on Tuesday afternoon to life in prison with no chance of parole for 20 years.

    Don't ever be sorry for bumping old threads, I love reading updates!....even better that he got sentenced to life in prison. Just wish the time before possible parole was longer.

    Holy shit, he did a LOT of stabbing, that must've been exhausting. I am calling bullshit on being drunk - when I'm drunk, I get tired. I wonder if something like meth/coke was involved?

    Also, Clarissa's profile pic was changed almost a year after this happened - odd someone would do that.
