Name: James Lucas McLaughlin
Died: October 5, 2009 (Body found)
Age at death: 20
Cause of death: Stabbed
Location: Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
James, described as “a truly happy individual”, had just moved out of his mother’s house to live on his own.
His family found him dead in the apartment on a Monday morning. He had been stabbed to death. The last time anyone had seen him was when he’d hosted a party the preceding Thursday.
James’s murder is unsolved, and police say they would like to hear from anyone who was at the party or who may have seen anything unusual between that night and the morning James’s body was found.
