Calgary house where five slain up for sale
By The Canadian Press
CALGARY - The house which was the site of Calgary's worst mass murder has been put up for sale.
Five young people were slain at an end-of-school party in April at the house near the University of Calgary campus.
The real estate listing for the 1,033 square foot, four-bedroom home puts the asking price at $489,900.
The listing promises a great location on a massive lot but adds it "needs some work to turn it into the gem it can be."
Matthew de Grood has been charged with first-degree murder in the stabbing deaths of Zackariah Rathwell, 21; Lawrence Hong, 27; Joshua Hunter, 23; Jordan Segura, 22; and Kaiti Perras, 23.
He is to undergo a psychiatric assessment to determine whether he can be found criminally responsible if convicted and will be back in court Aug. 29.
A psychiatric review has already determined that de Grood is fit to stand trial because he understands the charges against him and is able to communicate with his lawyer.
The accused, the son of a senior Calgary police officer, has been in psychiatric care since his arrest.
Police have not said what they think motivated the attack, but say de Grood was invited to the party April 15 and mingled with guests before violence broke out.
