Police arrested and charged three more men in the investigation of two murders and the kidnapping of a third person last September from a home in Renfrew-Collingwood, where the chilling crime scene led to a massive, coordinated police hunt across the region.
Ellwood Thomas Bradbury, 26, Matthew Scott Stewart, 33, and Erlan Lizandro Acosta, 26, have been arrested and are charged with kidnapping, unlawful confinement, aggravated assault, and two counts of extortion. No one has been charged in the double murder.
Police responded to an emergency call that came after 10 p.m. Sept. 17, 2016 and entered a home on Dieppe Place that had the lights turned on but no sign of any activity. Two slain people were found inside, along with a four-year-old boy, terrified but unharmed and whom relatives said was the child of the murder victims.
Victims Xuan Vanvy Ba-Cao, 24, and Samantha Le, 29, lived at the house with the child and the kidnapping victim.
Police said the attack was not random.
Two days after the initial attack, police rescued the kidnapping victim and arrested three men in their early 20s, Harinam Ananda Cox, Shamil Amir Ali, and Gopal Figueredo, and charged them with kidnapping without the use of a firearm, unlawful confinement or imprisonment, extortion and aggravated assault.
