Edward Lake, whose three children and father-in-law were killed in a horrific accident in Vaughan in 2015 caused by a drunk driver, has taken his own life.
Lake’s dead body was discovered by a Peel Regional Police on Charters Road. Monday in Brampton.
Sources say he was released from Peel police custody in the morning after an overnight confinement, which was the result of a mental health order and an incident at his home where a Taser was used by the police on Father’s Day .
His wife Jennifer called the police home for the second time in 24 hours – who had expressed concern over his antics in the backyard. Sources say the tactical officers were stationed at home due to concerns over potential threat potential.
Sources say that the security cameras installed in the house were switched off.
“The people who are on the phone are very upset because of the respect for that family,” an official said. “The only thing people cling to is at least that man out of pain.”
Lake and his wife Jennifer Neville-Lake were left distraught and heartbroken after the accident, which claimed the lives of nine-year-old Daniel, five-year-old brother Harrison and two-year-old sister Millie, as well as their 65. -year-old father Gary Neville. Neville-Lake’s mother and grandmother were among the injured.
In 2016, Marco Muzzo was sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to four counts of bad driving to death and two to bodily harm caused by poor driving.
He was released on full parole on February 9, 2021 and was released after serving two-thirds of his lesser sentence of nine years and four months. He had a mandatory release on Saturday.
On Sunday, Neville-Lake shared a photo of a children’s graveyard on social media.
“Father’s Day 2022. It doesn’t have to be real. It can’t be,” she wrote.
She also shared her heartbreak on the day Muzo was given her full release.
“Many of my life sentences will never end.”
