Would your father...

... cover up a murder for you?

-- TORONTO -- A six-year-old girl watched helplessly from her carseat as her mom allegedly lunged forward from the backseat with a "large" kitchen knife and butchered her dad as he drove along a residential street near High Park over the weekend, Toronto Police said Monday.
This woman just happens to travel with a large kitchen knife? What's up with that?
The victim, Ludlow Gillespie, 25, was driving north on Windermere Ave., north of Lakeshore Blvd., around 2:30 p.m. Saturday.His common-law wife of seven years, Melissa Lewis, 24, was sitting in the back seat behind the driver.

The couple's daughter was in the back seat beside her mother and the woman's father was in the front passenger seat.

The victim and deceased had "a history of domestic violence" and both are known to police.
And Grampa just disappears into the wind with the little girl.

Chalk up another one for Toronto's "code of silence".


UPDATE: Not just a pretty face
The 25-year-old aspiring Toronto rapper known as Mecca was stabbed in the neck allegedly by his common-law wife as they drove through a quiet west end neighbourhood Saturday afternoon.
And it looks like Grampy is still on the lam.

Paraphrase: "Who carries a knife in their car?"

Not to pre-judge Toronto's Finest - but this sounds pre-meditated to me.

what exactly are you saying? you don't carry "large edged weapons" around with you at all times?

what kind of knuckle-draggin' girlie-man neocon are you anyway?

I was going to add:

Luckily daddy stopped the car before the "life-force" was completely gone! /sarc

Neo Conservative said...

mrs n read this one... and the dumbassedness of the killer jumped out at her...

"she stabbed him while the car was going"!?!

i guess they don't make murderers like they used to.

Poor kid doesn't have a chance. Talk about a vicious cycle. Hopefully with any luck she gets placed with someone who takes care of her properly.

"langmann says... she gets placed with someone who takes care of her properly."

well... they gotta find her first.

gramps apparently just bailed from the blood-soaked car with the kid under his arm and headed out for parts unknown.

apparently there's a real shortage of responsible adults in this particular family unit.

Re: the "Mecca" street-moniker,

IMHO, if his wife didn't off him when she did, probably the Islamists would have later.

"jwkozak91 says... 'Mecca" street-moniker'"

islamists aside... and i admit i'm just spitballin' here... it seems having a "street name" and a 'tude... is like painting a large bulls-eye on your back.

toronto... you can have it.
