I had taken a break from writing on any topic for the past while, but now I am back, and it feels good to put words to blog, again.
It has to do with motivation for writing and now that I have seen yet another murder of someone that I knew, I am puzzled over how many people that are dying by the hands of insane people. When I went to High School in Toronto I became acquaintances with James Massey, who no matter, always greeted me with a smile. He seemed like one of those guys that would always be there for his friends and was a person that clearly had respect as a child, which was clearly learned from his family.
Two days ago I heard about a murder that happened at Oriole Park, in the Davisville and Yonge area, yet I had not heard a name. But then yesterday I saw that it was in fact James Massey, and I knew that when I did a Google search for the name, that it would be his image associated to the story. What a sad moment in time. I never knew David Ludwig, but supposedly there was an altercation amongst the two of them. The sad thing is premeditation is clearly involved because you do not carry a shotgun around with you when going too meet someone at a park. There are some oddities about this case though, as I do not understand how the neighbours were able to identify the person as being David Ludwig, when they most likely did not know the man. The only way they could do so in my eyes is by seeing him, then the friends of the victim knowing that they met, being able to have the cops then show a picture of the suspect to the neighbours for identification.
Without a doubt this is a strange story, but most notably a sad one. It makes no sense for someone to have a shotgun in Toronto, and for someone to meet up with someone having a shotgun in their possession, you would think the victim would see that they had a shotgun, as it is not the easiest weapon to conceal.
In a moment like this I send my deepest thoughts to the family and friends of James Massey, the latter of which I know of. This is the third person that I know who has been murdered, and it seems like this is the only one that has someone being held accountable.
We can only shake our head at people who are willing to throw their life away over a feud. If James Massey ever did something for you, or you have something to say about him as a person, please post your comments as it will be a nice gesture to show the true colours of a good man.
Alex Christoff, Oliver Martin, Dylan Ellis, and James Massey - RIP - Your hearts live on in the lives that you touched.
