GoFundMe page for murdered Hamilton teen is 'unauthorized'

GoFundMe page for murdered Hamilton teen is 'unauthorized'”

The unauthorized page titled "Hamilton Hero Funeral Fundraiser" has been disabled, since it is unknown where the money was actually going.

Police say their Major Fraud Branch is investigating the account.

The Brock Press previously mentioned in an article about a GoFundMe page created in the memory of Yosif Al-Hasnawi.

Hamilton police and GoFundMe shut down an apparently fraudulent online fundraising campaign Thursday launched in the name of murder victim Yosif Al-Hasnawi.

"We have been trying to reach the person who started the page to find out what his intentions are", Doerr said Thursday. "The family that we've spoken with have not approved this and we have not been able to speak with the originator of the GoFundMe page".

GoFundMe has taken down the account down, but it had already raised $1,345. Police continue to try to reach the account creator, he said.

Al-Hasnawi died in hospital after being shot in the stomach Saturday evening near the mosque where he had been attending. The Brock University student was then gunned down on nearby Sanford Ave.

That suspect, identified as 19-year-old Dale Burningsky King, is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for second degree murder.

Brock University will hold a vigil for Al-Hasnawi on Friday at the Pond Inlet in the Mackenzie Chown Complex on campus at around 3 p.m. Police say he should be considered armed and risky. Police warn not to approach him if you see him, but call 911.

Police arrested the first suspect, 20-year-old James Anthony Robert, on Monday and charged him with accessory after the fact to murder.
