Spencer Laffin Death – Spencer Laffin, a resident of Hamilton, Ontario, and a beloved father, brother, and son passed away tragically. He was confirmed dead through a social media publication that read “My brother Spencer Laffin I can’t believe I’m writing this. I wonder what you are doing or where you chose to be for your eternal life…I know we all think that this is life, who we are here on earth but, I believe that this is just a test.”
What was Spencer Laffin’s cause of death?
Spencer Laffin, 33, was named as the murder victim by Hamilton police during a press conference on Tuesday afternoon. According to Det. Sgt. Sara Beck of the homicide unit, detectives think at least two suspects—a gunman and a getaway driver—were involved in the shooting at Nebo Road and Hempstead Drive. Although the motivation is unknown, police believe the shooting was targeted.
Soon after 5 p.m. on Monday, after receiving several 911 calls, police located Laffin in the front parking lot of 70 Nebo Rd., a business site on the northwest corner of Nebo and Hempstead that is home to various businesses, according to Beck. According to the inquiry, the shooting started in front of Satellite Tires, a Laffin family-owned company located on the southwest corner of 100 Nebo Rd. Before the gunfire started, the gunman and Laffin had a “very brief interaction.”
Who was the suspect?
Spencer was shot multiple times more and eventually died from his wounds at the neighboring farm at 70 Nebo Road, where he was being followed, according to her statement. The gunman left the area by driving north on Nebo. He is characterized as a six-foot-nine Black man with a lean frame, dark clothes, and a blue medical mask on. A four-door, dark-colored SUV that made a stop at Nebo and Hempstead before to the incident is also being sought after by the police.
According to Beck, the gunman is thought to have originated from this car and then escaped in the SUV that followed the gunfire. The getaway driver’s description remained unreleased. Between 2:30 and 5:15 p.m. on Monday, police ask anyone who drive and shop in the commercial area to examine their security cameras for footage of the suspect and the vehicle. According to Beck, police have spoken with Laffin’s coworkers and will spend the next two days searching for video around the crime scene. According to her, this is Hamilton’s tenth murder of the year.
Spencer Laffin’s obituary and funeral arrangements will be released by the family at a later date.
