Calgary stabbing victim Lawrence Hong to be remembered

The final funeral for the five young adults stabbed to death last week in northwest Calgary takes place this afternoon.

A service for Lawrence Hong, 27, is set for 1:30 p.m. MT at the Centre Street Church in northeast Calgary.

Calgary Transit is making arrangements for a special bus service to the funeral because Hong — who was soon to graduate from the urban studies program at the University of Calgary — was such a strong supporter of sustainable transportation.

He was killed at a party in Brentwood that was marking the end of the university semester on April 15 along with Joshua Hunter, 23, Kaitlin Perras, 23, Zackariah Rathwell, 21, and ​Jordan Segura, 22.

Matthew de Grood, 22, is charged with five counts of first-degree murder. He has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric examination to determine if he is fit to stand trial.
