Three young men who were once friends who played hockey together, have all been charged in the murder of Nick Hannon.
The three men made a brief court appearance in Surrey on Monday, only to have the case put over to early next month.
Two of the accused, Bradley Flaherty and Keith Tankhard, appeared by video. The third, Connor Campbell, attended in person in a prisoner’s dock.
All three are charged with first-degree murder in the death of 19-year-old Nick Hannon of Langley.
His father, Craig Hannon, told reporters outside court that he was frustrated and angry to see the trio.
At one time, he was their hockey coach.
“It’s extremely disheartening. To think you know someone, and … turns out you don’t.”
Hannon’s vehicle was found in the Walnut Grove area of Langley last year.
His body was found in a wooded area of Mission just recently, nearly 18 months after we went missing in February 2014.
Campbell is the son of former Mountie Catherine Galliford, who is suing the RCMP over years of alleged sexual harassment and abuse while she was on the force.
His father, Derek Campbell, is a current Mountie.
