On Monday may 6 2013 Police announced a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect in connection to the murder of Nighisti Semret last year. Semret, 55, was murdered in a laneway near Bleecker Street early in the morning of October 23, 2012 as she walked home from her job at the Delta Chelsea Hotel in Toronto’s Cabbagetown area. “Based on the fact that the offender took some interest in relation to the bag that Ms. Semret was carrying, and in relation to opening it, I’m going to suggest that robbery could be a very strong possibility,” (The star). The suspect is male, about 150 to 180 pounds with a medium build and dark eyebrows. She was an African refugee who lived alone and had no known family in Canada.
This poor woman wasn't bothering anyone she worked, kept to herself and wasn't a bother to anyone according to reports. What could she have possibly done to deserve this? My heart goes out to her family very sad and for no reason but I know that the Toronto Police will apply the maximum resources possible as they set out to apprehend this killer his method of selecting his victim is random.
The Moral of the story is that Crime is a serious issue if you take one’s life away you lose your right to life. This will make others think twice before committing such acts, as well as show the value of a human life by punishing those who kill innocent lives.
