(THUNDER BAY, ON) – In what was clearly an inhumane and disgusting act which has people of all walks of life shocked and appalled, the identity of the victim has now been released by family.
Kenny Dennis passed away yesterday at the Thunder Bay Health Sciences Centre when he was taken off life support after suffering a brutal and heartless incident which left him unrecoverable.
Dennis was at the Midtown Inn and someone spiked him with the dirty and all-too-often fatal “blue down”. Just to be clear, he didn’t know they were injecting him with the blue down.”Blue down” is a mix of fentanyl, carfentanil, heroin, dog-dewormer, comet and various other inappropriate chemicals. (more about that at the end of this article).
Sources indicate that Dennis was at the Midtown when two girls were assisting him in locating some cocaine. The girls returned with the cocaine but they also purchased some “blue down”. One of the girls then loaded a needle with “blue down” and injected him, throwing him into an overdose as he does not and has not ever used any “down” or heroin what-so-ever.
Once Dennis was completely unresponsive, the girls then poured water on his face and stole the pile of money he had on him. Then they took at least one of his credit/debit cards and pulled out money after he had been taken by ambulance.
Ambulance took him to the hospital around 7:00 am. Staff were unable to identify him due to his wallet being taken. He was taken off life-support around 2:00 pm the same day.
The investigation is now being handled by Thunder Bay Police Service homicide detectives. Anyone with information are urged to contact the Thunder Bay Police Service at 807-684-1200 or through Crime Stoppers via their website at www.p3tips.com/273. Crime Stoppers may pay you up to $2000 for tips that lead to a conviction.
One of the suspects is a well-known flailer and will be named once arrested.
This was a disgusting act that was done to a well-known and well-loved person. He was a great father, a winner, and not a scumbag. There is nothing wrong with going out to party once in a while, but everyone needs to learn from this that you only surround yourself with good, trustworthy people. Dennis leaves behind two children.

“Blue Down” is a relative of “Purple Down”. “Purple Down” mainly contains:
- Crystal meth
