The man suspected of fatally stabbing five people in their 20s at a northwest Calgary, Alberta, house party is the son of a veteran police officer, according to the city's chief of police.

Matthew de Grood is in custody after four males and a female died following the early-morning stabbings in the city’s Brentwood neighbourhood, just north of the University of Calgary campus.

I can't imagine what the father, or the family, must be going through after hearing this. I hope he gets the needed support from his colleagues.
