  1. Something is very wrong with this case. I read that earlier in one of Ottawa’s toilet papers of record and to go missing for all that time especially the foreigners who hold tight onto family something does not add up at all. There had to be tremendous pressure on this young man or something horrible happened for him to do away with himself unless he was attacked. It remains a mystery so far.
