Supreme Court refuses to hear appeal of Calgary murderer who killed teen, fled to Vietnam | CBC News
The Supreme Court of Canada has refused to hear the appeal of a Calgary murderer who once fled the country ahead of his trial.
Nathan Gervais was convicted of first-degree murder in 2019. Gervais killed Lukas Strasser-Hird, 18, outside a nightclub in 2013.
Strasser-Hird was swarmed, beaten and stabbed to death by a group after he called out someone who had used a racial slur against a bouncer at the Vinyl nightclub.
Gervais retrieved a knife from his car and stabbed the victim three times.
As he was swarmed and beaten, Strasser-Hird begged for his life.
