More details are being revealed about one of the three young men charged with first degree murder in the death of Nicholas Hannon.
A report from the Vancouver Sun details that 21-year-old Connor Angus Campbell’s mother is former RCMP Spokesperson Corporal Catherine Galliford, and his father is current RCMP Sergeant Major Darren Campbell.
Galliford was the media liaison for high-profile cases such as the Pickton murder investigation and in 2012 filed a lawsuit against the RCMP claiming she suffered years of sexual harassment while on the job.
Hannon’s body was discovered in a wooded area of Mission after his car was found abandoned and he went missing in Langley last February.
Hannon’s father Craig spoke to Global News about the revelations.
“Full credit to IHIT for following through on the charges. It shouldn’t matter from what walk of life or who you are or what your pedigree is; if you’ve committed a crime, you should be charged with it and full credit to Crown for following through on the charges.”
“It must be very hard on the parents, considering they must’ve raised him on a straight arrow, theoretically. It must be very hard for them.”
Darren Campbell spoke to the Vancouver Sun, saying “it’s heartbreaking and devastating for every family involved”, adding he couldn’t comment on the investigation because he isn’t part of it.
The news came on the same day Hannon was laid to rest in Langley; the accused will be in Surrey Provincial Court tomorrow for a bail hearing.
