Ryan Grantham, the 23-year-old Canadian actor best-known for “Riverdale” alongside “Supernatural,” has been sentenced to life in prison. Grantham, still a kid at the time of incident, shot down his mother, Barbara White, back in the March of 2020.
While announcing the verdict, British Columbia Supreme Court Judge had branded the case “tragic” and “heart-breaking,” as the Judge was quoted saying that it was a grace that the kid had finally decided to turn himself in.
Riverdale actor Grantham sentenced to life in prison
According to court documents, Barbara White was playing a piano at her home in Squamish, British Columbia, on a ‘March 2020’ morning.
Grantham shot at the back of her mother’s head with a .22 calibre rifle. Nevertheless, shortly after committing the murder, then a teen-ager Grantham took a GoPro video where he confessed that he had killed his mother, while he had covered White’s body with a sheet and surrounded it with candles.
Then the kid decided to drive east to Ottawa with an intent to murder PM Trudeau, however, he gave up the thought and decided to commit a mass shooting at Simon Fraser University, where he would have studied.
The teen’s car was full of guns, ammunitions alongside Molotov Cocktails. Nonetheless, finally he decided to turn himself in at Vancouver Police Department building.
Under legal jurisdiction in Canada, a second-degree murderer would be subjected to an automatic life sentence, while questions remain how long the now 23-year-old would have to wait before applying for a parole.
