PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE, Manitoba — A man aboard a Greyhound bus repeatedly stabbed and then decapitated a fellow passenger, witnesses said today.


The man, who was not identified, was arrested for the murder, which occurred Wednesday night aboard a bus traveling from Edmonton, Albert, to Winnipeg, Manitoba, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said in a statement.
Authorities also declined to name the victim and provided no other details about the attack.

But passenger Garnet Caton said the victim was stabbed dozens of times by the man sitting next to him. The passenger then severed the man’s head with a large knife.

“We heard this bloodcurdling scream and turned around, and the guy was standing up, stabbing this guy repeatedly, like 40 or 50 times,” Caton said from a hotel in Brandon, Manitoba, where he and other passengers had been taken to rest.

“There was no rage or anything. He was like a robot, stabbing the guy.”

Caton said other passengers raced from the bus, and that he and the driver held the door shut from the outside while awaiting police.

He said the attacker calmly came to the front of the bus to show off the head.

“He dropped the head and went back and started cutting the body back up,” said Cody Olmstead, a passenger from Kentville, Nova Scotia.

The victim, who Caton said appeared to be about 19, had been on the bus since Edmonton. He said the attacker boarded the bus in Brandon, Manitoba.

The suspect had been on the bus for about an hour and didn’t even sit near his victim at first.

“He sat in the front at first, everything was normal,” Caton said.

“We went to the next stop and he got off and had a smoke with another young lady there. When he got on the bus again, he came to the back near where I was sitting.

“He put his bags in the overhead compartment. He didn’t say a word to anybody. He seemed totally normal. About a half an hour later, we heard this bloodcurdling scream.”

Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day called it a “bizarre” and “horrific” incident, but did not discuss details of the attack, saying he did not want to jeopardize the investigation.

“We want to make sure that the process is followed as aggressively as possible, a full legal process, and the perpetrator is definitely dealt with the full force of the law,” he said.

Greyhound spokeswoman Abby Wambaugh said 37 passengers and one driver were on the bus.


Thats like horror movie kinda stuff...

This story must be a hoax. There is no violence in Canada, ever. Unless the murder was originally from Texas or something.

it happened.  i think they did the right thing, by confining him to the bus.  tragedy strikes. better to have 1 dead than multiple.  i dont know how i'd react in that kind of situation.

but the poor victim, didnt even get a chance. knifed while sleeping

Why? I would assume being shot would be a lot less of a <poopy> death than being stabbed multiple times. Then again, I have never been stabbed or shot so I wouldn't know for sure.

Thats what I was going for with that comment... God, guess I have to put little sarcasm tags in every post now.

1) Thats horrible.
2a) Guns are legal in Canada. They are just much more restricted and regulated than in the U.S.
2b) Legal guns =/= everyone has guns.

 Just read it was in Canada, thankfully I live in America, where soon, very soon, something like this won't be able to happen to me as easily...
 60 bucks for a Permit, and around 450$ for a Ruger 45. ...

 "Like a Robot" thats a really chilling discription of a man decapitating another man...

 I wonder what the guy did, if they knew each other, if they got into a argument or if it was completely random, either way if I was there, and had a firearm, I would have felt no remorse for taking his life after seeing something like that..
