Edit: Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I see now. The nutbag stabbed the people to death. Had he shot them with AN ASSAULT RIFLE they’d bury him under the prison.
Matthew de Grood killed five people at a Brentwood house party in northwest Calgary on April 15, 2014.
A judge in 2016 found de Grood not criminally responsible for the killings because he was suffering from schizophrenia at the time.
A trial heard that de Grood, who was then 22, believed that the devil was talking to him and that a war was about to begin, signalling the end of the world, when he arrived at the Calgary party, which was being held to mark the end of the school year.
Gregg Perras, father of Kaitlin Perras, said he was not surprised by the review board’s decision.
“We’ve been punched in the head almost every time by this process,” Perras said. “So, I was expecting them to do exactly what the treatment team said. It’s mind boggling that he could have unsupervised access to the community this year.”
The psychiatrist in charge of de Grood’s medical treatment said the man’s risk of reoffending is low.
But Dr. Santoch Rai also told the Alberta Review Board that if de Grood were to commit another offence, it would be severe.
