RCMP, Greyhound, feds sued over McLean beheading

  • Print

Two southern Ontario women are suing Vince Li, Greyhound, the RCMP and the Government of Canada for being exposed to the horrific beheading of Tim McLean on July 30, 2008.

Debra Tucker, of Port Colborne, Ont., and Kayli Shaw, of London, Ont., are each seeking $3 million in damages.

The documents were filed in court today.

Li and McLean were passengers on the westbound Greyhound when Li pulled out a knife and killed the unsuspecting McLean and then later cut off his head.

Li was found not criminally responsible but committed to a psychiatric institution in Selkirk.

Tucker stated in the court filing that she is suffering post traumatic stress disorder, severe distress, and nervous shock as a result of "witnessing the defendant Li stabbing Mr. McLean Jr. to death, mutilating his body and performing acts of cannibalism."

The two women allege that Greyhound failed to provide passengers with safe passage on its bus.

The allegations have not been proven in court.

No statement of defence has been filed.
