This man got out of jail at the end of september and stayed with me as friends. We were going to stay in Campbellton, New Brunswick and my first day there, he tried to murder me and left with all of my belongings, my cherished things from my daughters. have a brain tumor. This 53 yr old man is heartless and a scrub, watch out all bcuz, although acquitted, he is seeking mad revenge. Some ppl should be locked up for life. No joke.
