Kelly Thompson, 34, was attacked on April 14, 2016 at 10 pm after he got out of his vehicle near 137th Street and 115th Avenue in Edmonton, Alberta. He was there to help a friend. Then four or five suspects wearing dark clothing and hoods got out of another vehicle and allegedly struck him multiple times with baseball bats before fleeing the area. Thompson was found in critical condition. He died two days later in hospital as a result of blunt force trauma to the head. It is unknown if he knew his attackers or not.
In December, eight months after the attack, police released a photo of a light-coloured SUV with tinted windows that might have been involved in the attack.
This is the photo that the police gave out as the vehicle seen in the area. It was caught on camera. Lord knows when the camera was made but this is pathetic. But then again who knows any lead could be a lead.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Edmonton Police Service at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477
My thoughts on this. There is little info out there. Not even much about Kelly’s past. I would assume that this would be drug related or maybe he had relations with someone’s wife? If it was a random attack citizens need to be very worried. Police are with holding a lot which I don’t blame them. So who knows. There are theories about it here at Reddit.
