Still don’t know squat.

    And the general public won’t. Some one has lost a family member, condolences!

Well, I do hope they will release his name before too long. Very sad to hear about.

Condolences to the family. I can kind of see how this would happen there though.

I once stopped at the Massey overpass because a fantastic sunrise. One of the best photograph locations for an early morning sunrise over the downtown in all of PG. Its a shame we have so many trees along that stretch of road blocking a world class view. I always thought the location between the Massey off ramp and the Massey Overpass should be a city park. There is plenty of room for a small parking lot and some picnic table areas.

Anyways when I stopped there for some pictures years ago I noticed in the bush area it looked heavily used by the homeless. I imagine it still is as they have some of the best views in the city hanging out in that wooded area doing what ever they do. Right away though it makes one think that is a prime area for some bad things to happen being so isolated from regular city say park visitors; and yet so close and central to a lot of foot traffic from the mall, school, and ball fields. All that ugly tree cover gives the lower element a lot of cover to commit who knows what kind of crimes.
