A message from Kornicky:
I briefly mentioned my girlfriend, Kim and her brother’s close connection to this family suffering unimaginable loss. It’s been in our backdrop for a week now. Quietly hoping.
The OPP have tried their best, and also feel this family tragedy. A local search will continue and with your help, this grieving family can hopefully have their son brought home.
