(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Overnight last night, two suspects entered a home in the 300 block of Syndicate Ave North.
Armed with a baseball bat and possibly a hammer, the two suspects, one alleged to be Cody Echum, beat a male severely and it is believed they robbed him of a sum of money.
The victim had just gotten a land claim settlement payout which was in the thousands of dollars range.
Officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service and paramedics with Superior North EMS rushed to the scene and then rushed the baseball bat beating victim to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre’s emergency department.
Sources indicate that the young man who was critically injured during the baseball bat beating is not expected to live.
Our Mayor, city council, and other regional politicians have yet to say something meaningful and recent about the out-of-control crime that Thunder Bay is deep in the grasps of. Sources indicate that they may be more concerned with putting out a false image of our city rather than addressing the reality that is Thunder Bay.
