Robbery / Murder at the Midtown – Victim Identified


(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 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.

What is “blue down”? As we reported last month, when the drug hit Thunder Bay, it is very dangerous and dirty. Below is our report dated November 15th, 2019.

(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A new version of illegal opiates has hit Thunder Bay by storm. This new drug is dirtier, nastier, and cheaper than it’s purple cousin.

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

  • Fentanyl
  • Carfentanil
  • Heroin
  • Crystal meth
  • Various cutting agents such as dog-dewormer.

The “Blue” variant has tested much nastier. It has all the same as it’s purple brethren, along with the following:

  • Bath salts
  • Various benzo’s
  • Sleeping pills
  • Comet (the cleaning product).

This version of the drug has hit Thunder Bay and people are consuming it at alarming rates as it is more diluted than it’s purple cousin. The blue stuff can and is still causing overdoses. The photos in this article are from products in Thunder Bay. Blue down has been in Thunder Bay for quite some time, but it is now here in massive amounts and readily available in all areas of town.


If you want to get sober, reach out to the good people at the Thunder Bay counselling centre at 807-684-1880.

  1. Heartfelt sympathy to his family. So sad no one will ever never know what lead to this guy to making such a fatal mistake to trust those two hyenas. Those scumbags who caused this death should be charged with murder. If your heart lacks certain enzymes you can die from the first dose of cocaine you try. But you dont know if you lack them til it is too late. Very sad he leaves behind a family.

  2. Kenny was a good man lead astray in recent years from bad choices and an addiction to bad drugs.
    Kenny was a man with a good heart and I’m sure will be missed by many including myself.
    Rest In Peace my old friend. You will be missed for a lifetime.

  3. This is unbelievable ,devastating news. To think someone could intentionally kill someone over money..Kenny was a beautiful soul, He came from a family that loves him very, very much. I’ll never forget his infectious laugh and his love for people. May he rest in peace and his family get the closure they so much deserve. These two young women have not only wrecked their lives they have broken so many hearts in the process of their addiction. It’s a shame that humankind isn’t always kind.
    Let’s pray for his children their Mother. Kenny’s mother and his two beautiful sisters..
    I pray he’s laughing and eating Pizza with Freddy now. God Bless.

    1. Not sure who u r but u must have known him very well. Ur comment made me smile thinking about him happy, eating pizza with Uncle Freddy and our Dad. Thank you for making me smile.

  4. When these people are caught, if they don’t get first degree murder charges then I will lose total faith of this judicial system.

  5. Kenny was a super nice guy give you the shirt off his back. So sad that people would that. I remember groin up Kenny was always the one to say no to bad things or drugs. If anything good can come of this tragedy , let be that it takes only one time people. May seem like a harmless little line but it could be carfentynal you never kno. RIP my friend.

  6. So Sad,,, A True Friend, We Shared Many Good Times Working Together,and Awesome Hockey Moments. Condolences To All The Family and Friends,,,He Will Sadly Be Missed By All…Till We Meet Again.

  7. I don’t know Kenny or his family. I do however feel for them. To have this happen at any time of the year is horrible, more so though with the holidays almost upon us. May he Rest In Peace. May his children and there mother feel the love and support offered by the community. I pray his family also feels our support.
    To those who did this, I pray for you as well. I pray you get caught & feel the full force of the law upon you. How could you do something so horrible just for money. Getting him drunk most likely would have had the same effect without taking his life. Turn yourself in. Think about what your doing to his children. To his family. They are all suffering cause you wanted to get a fix.
    I hope Kenny’s family manages to survive through this, I am so sorry for you.
