Senior beaten to death in the DTES
CBC is reporting that Jeff Strom, 64, was attacked near East Cordova and Dunlevy streets at around 5:30 p.m. PT on Thursday. He was hospitalized with serious injuries but died on Saturday. Police said James Frederick Fierheller, who has no fixed address, was initially arrested for assault causing bodily harm, but since Strom's death, the charges have changed. "Those charges have been updated to manslaughter," Sgt. Aaron Roed said during a news conference Tuesday.
"Investigators are looking to speak with anyone who saw the attack or has dashcam footage from the area at the time of the attack. The intersection is at the southwest corner of Oppenheimer Park. Anyone with information is asked to call VPD detectives at 604-717-2500, or Crime Stoppers to remain anonymous."
Right at the site of the evicted Oppenheimer Rape camp which relocated to Strathcona park. Wherever you let drugs be sold publicly, violent crime in that area dramatically increases.
