Police: Canada girls assaulted people same night as killing
Toronto police did not say whether the suspects in the murder were the teenage girls suspected in the attacks and cited a court’s publication ban in the case for not providing more. information.
Police say Lee died in hospital after being stabbed and stabbed by a group of eight teenage girls in mid-December. Three 13-year-olds, three 14-year-olds and two 16-year-olds face charges forced second degree murder.
Police said they believe the girls met on social media and came from homes across the Greater Toronto Area. They said three people had interacted with police, while five others had not.
Canadian authorities were unable to identify them because they were minors. One was released on bail last month, while the rest await trial.
Investigators said they thought the girls were trying to get a bottle of alcohol from the man. They also said the same girls had engaged in a scuffle earlier that night, participating in a “mass gathering” that had never happened between the girls, said Sgt. Terry Browne said last month.
Decades ago in Toronto, he said, teenage boys would crowd into crowds when they tried to steal Dr. Martens or Air Jordan shoes, but the crime is gone.
