The “Riverdale” actor, who killed his mother, plots to assassinate Justin Trudeau

Last March, “Riverdale” actor Ryan Grantham pleaded guilty to killing his 64-year-old mother with a bullet to the back of the head in 2020, while she was playing the piano at her home in Squamish, Canada. During Monday’s hearing, Grantham revealed his second victim.

During the early hours of the hearing, the court heard how the actor admitted that he had trained to kill. He even claimed to have recorded the subsequent moments on the video. In those photos that were presented to the British Columbia judge, he talked about the shooting of Barbara White and showed her body.

As if that wasn’t enough, after his mother’s murder, the 24-year-old went in search of a second victim. Armed with three handguns, ammo, Molotov cocktails, camping supplies and a map with directions, he drove into the Canadian East with the idea of ​​ending Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s life.

He also provided an unusual reason to justify the cold-blooded murder of his mother. “I didn’t want her to see the act of violence I would have,” he said regarding his intentions to assassinate the 50-year-old president who has been in the government since 2015.

Since CBC was able to rebuild, Grantham left Squamish the next day to kill his mother with her body inside the car. Before leaving the crime scene, he tested one of his explosive devices. The trip was long. He drove for about 50 hours.

He moved to Hope County, where he stopped to think. It was there that he made the decision not to continue his “mission”. That same night, he surrendered to Vancouver police. The authorities later notified him that he could be convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to life imprisonment.

Psychological Experience on Ryan Grantham

In the middle of the hearing a few days ago, prosecutor Michaela Donnelly submitted two psychiatric reports on the mental state of the young man who played Jeffrey Augustine in “Riverdale.” Both reports agreed that Grantham was going through a severe period of clinical depression.

The possibility was considered that the 24-year-old had suffered from violent impulses prior to the murder, along with persistent suicidal thoughts. A potential marijuana use disorder has also been identified.
