A vigil is set to take place in town tomorrow (Nov. 7) after Hunter Straight-Smith was taken off life support over the weekend.
He is the three-year-old boy who had been stabbed as he slept by his mother’s ex-boyfriend in an attack last week.
33-year-old Daniel Jensen has been charged with aggravated assault and attempted murder. Those charges are expected to be upgraded once an autopsy is completed.
The vigil will be at the Aboriginal Centre at UCN from noon to 2 p.m.
In a Facebook post, organizers of the vigil say this is a way for Thompson residents to show their love, support, and compassion to Hunter’s family and friends during this difficult time.
Everyone is welcome to attend, and are encouraged to bring a teddy bear, drums, and rattles.
