Canada - Steve Fonyo, stabbed in possible home invasion, Whalley, BC, Feb 2015
just breaking news right now
he was stabbed at his residence
"Fonyo was 19 years old when he completed a one-legged run across the country, following in the footsteps of Terry Fox, who was forced to abandon his Marathon of Hope four years earlier.
Since then, however, the one-time hero has battled personal demons including cocaine addiction and depression"Just My Opinion

"Five years ago Fonyo was stripped of his Order of Canada after piling up several criminal convictions, including impaired driving, assault with a weapon, fraud and theft.
Neighbours have told CBC News that Fonyo has been nothing but trouble since he moved into the neighbourhood."

''Fallen Canadian hero Steve Fonyo is in an induced coma after being stabbed in the back and beaten by attackers at his Whalley home early Friday morning, The Province has learned."
There's a lot to the story at the link:
utilities recently turned off and possible stolen vehicle in his driveway not adding up to a happy picture
I prefer to remember him as the young man who ran 2 marathons - once in Canada and once in the UK and who raised
$13 million for cancer research.Just My Opinion

""the head injury is preventing RCMP from interviewing Fonyo about what investigators have said was likely a targeted assault in his home in Surrey, southeast of Vancouver, where three men stormed his doorway.''
From what I have read, LE is totally relying upon him for recall -Just My Opinion
