On May 15th CJME reported that the Regina Police Service announced John Earl Desjarlais, 30, has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Reno Lee.

  1. A little context would be helpful because there is no indication, to many of us, if these people were "known to police", had criminal records, were members of gangs, etc.

    1. A blog reader mentioned it and implied it was rival drug dealers. The police aren't saying a word so we have to wait for the details to come out in court. It will be definitely worth watching and following up on.

  2. Regaurdless if he was "known to police" or a gang member, or whatever else, he was human. He was a father, and a son, and a brother. He did not deserve to doe like that. It is sad no matter what. His son (whom he loved very much) will grow up without his father. He touched many lives. Including mine...i am not a gang member, or known to police. Reno Lee was my friend. I will miss him dearly. :(

  3. They kidnapped them and were pulling a Jack move.
