    I wonder if someone was practicing for bow hunting and an arrow went astray. I think that bow season just started in the Kitchener area.

    Very strange and disturbing case.

    This article has a few more details:
    http://news.nationalpost.com/news/kitchener-man-killed-by-arrow-while-out-for-a-stroll-just-walked-into-death-his-sister-says

    so....it wasn't as if the victim was attacked at home. He was walking through a residential neighbourhood. It would be difficult to stalk someone in that setting, while carrying a bow, without being seen. But since the victim did have a routine of doing that walk at that time, it does increase the odds that he was targetted. I would hate to think it was random and that there was a deranged person who might attack again.

    Here is the location where the victim was found. Could someone have been hiding among the large evergreen trees by the low multi-unit building across the side street to the left? They would have provided some 'cover' for the attacker. Or, to the right about 100 metres, and across the street is a wooded area.

    This is my city. It's not a normal occurrence. There is a wooded area near the homes that have deer. People are not to hunt here. It's scary as it really seems police have no leads.

    This person will be turned in soon. Very small community. He can't hide forever. Someone knows something and that will weigh down the person.

    The corner of Union and Margaret looks thickly wooded. Easy for someone to hide there.

    The police also investigated a couple of other "possible" BB gun shootings in that same university area the week after the female student got hit in the eye.

    As well, on August 17 a man was "shot in the temple" while driving along Union just on the other side of King St (Hwy 8), from the arrow murder.

    I think BB gun "incidents" are just more frequent, so don't necessarily think they are related to the arrow incident....but it's worth considering.

    I certainly hope that some of these leads pan out! This guy has to be caught.
