Hamilton Police arrest Dale King in the Homicide of Yosif Al-Hasnawi

GoFundMe account for slain Hamilton teen may be scam: Cops

The Brock Press previously mentioned in an article about a GoFundMe page created in the memory of Yosif Al-Hasnawi. Al-Hasnawi died that night in hospital.

Doerr said police advised the public not to donate to the campaign because it was not known where the money was going. We'd like to hear from you about this or any other stories you think we should know about. "Our investigation is ongoing".

"This matter is now being investigated by the Hamilton Police Service Major Fraud Branch", the Hamilton Police Service said in their press release.

Al-Haswani had exited a religious celebration at the Al-Mostafa Islamic Centre on 545 Main St. E. when he saw two people "accosting" an older man, police say.

Al-Hasnawi, a 19-year-old student and aspiring doctor, is being honoured at a vigil at Brock University on Friday.

Initially scheduled to be held in a classroom, the vigil is being moved to the large Pond Islet at Brock to accommodate what is expected to be a large turnout.

Hamilton Police say that at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, their officers along with the OPP arrested King in Hagersville, Ont., southeast of Six Nations. If the page is indeed fraudulent, all donations will be refunded. Police said he will be charged with second-degree murder.

Police investigators had encouraged him to turn himself in and were cautioning anyone assisting King that their actions will be the subject of investigation and they could face charges of accessory after the fact to murder. Police say he should be considered armed and risky. An unidentified female was also arrested and charged as an accessory after the fact.
