The 16 year old victim was Angela Her Killer is expected to be “Not Guilty”

Today at 1pm I will be attending the trial of another individual who committed an unprovoked murder. The system has pretty much predetermined that he will be found NCR (not criminally responsible) I had not heard of this murder, but it happened in May of 2009, in Winnipeg in front of multiple witnesses.

The victim ANGELA, was a lovely 16 yr old aboriginal girl who had just survived bone marrow transplant surgery, and was recovering nicely. Previously, Angela ‘s brother had passed away as he never got strong enough to undergo the same surgery. The Mother of these two beautiful children reached out to me and I am going to offer whatever support I can during what I know is going to be an extremely difficult time of helpless and hopelessness.

When the killer is found Not Criminally Responsible, the record will show a finding of not guilty! We do know someone is responsible for our children no longer being here and we want them to be HELD RESPONSIBLE! The issue of NCR needs to be addressed sooner rather than later!!!

We will update this story later today.

The Update

The Crown and lawyers for a Daniel Munroe of Winnipeg both asked a Manitoba court to declare him not criminally responsible for stabbing 16-year-old Angela Holm to death last year.

Angela Holm was killed in a home on Victor Street in Winnipeg in May 2009.

Daniel Munroe, 19, was charged with second-degree murder in the case, but pleaded not guilty by reason of being not criminally responsible (NCR) due to mental illness.

He is also accused of stabbing the girl’s uncle in the same incident. He survived.

Holm was recovering from surgery for leukemia at the time of the attack.

The defence has conceded Munroe stabbed Holm to death and attacked her uncle.

Both the Crown and Holm’s lawyer asked Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Morris Kaufman to agree to a joint recommendation to declare Munroe not responsible for the murder.

Munroe’s psychiatrist Dr. Giovana Levin testified he suffers from schizophrenia and is being treated with anti-psychotic medications. Levin said Munroe had no understanding of his actions when he attacked Holm and her stepfather.

Munroe has told her he was “the brother of Jesus Christ” and he “needed to save” Holm.

Munroe also said his home was haunted and he heard voices that sometimes threatened his life.

On Thursday afternoon the Judge found Daniel Munroe not guilty.

  1. Still cannot believe he was held NCR. I’ve seen him almost a few days before this happened & he seemed perfectly normal to me, meaning not being schizophrenic. He was smiling, being his normal self & then all of a sudden hes ‘mental’. Ya I don’t think so. ALL of my support is with you Lynn, so sorry justice was not served for our babygirl. I love you!

  2. You have my support Lynn. My heart feels for you with your loss; it’s a loss that I think all parents would find unbearable. In our culture we are taught that children are SACRED! It is the responsibility of all people to protect them and I sincerely hope that the goverment will keep that in mind when they make a ruling. I don’t agree in the death penalty because I feel all life is sacred but offenders do need to be held responsible for their actions including those with medical problems. RIP Ang (& Randall) and God bless Lynn.

  3. Hi, I am the mother of the victim Angela Holm. Here is my story.

    My babygirl, did not deserve the tragedy she endured. Back in May of 2008 Angela underwent a cord blood transplant. Her brother Randall (whom passed away Jan.2008) and her suffered from an immune disorder, Hypogammaglobianiemia. After we lost Randall, the Dr’s. pushed for Angie’s transplant, Randall was to get one too, however we (Dr.’s & I) couldn’t get him strong enough to go through the procedure. Unfortunately Angie’s cord blood did not take, her body was rejecting the transplant…so now the next step was an actual bone marrow transplant. The Dr.’s gave Angie a month and a bit break. Then in Sept. 2008 we did it all over again for the bone marrow transplant…I must say my babygirl was a very strong willed person who never gave up. Our prayers were answered. The transplant was working….Angie was winning!!!! Our miracle!!!!

    On the weekend prior to May 25, 2009 my babygirl went to spend it with her Uncle Rudolph and his family. She was really close with his children and step children and loved spending time with them. She would phone me before she went to bed at night to say “k mom I’m going to bed, good night, I love you and I’ll call you when I get up..” She never got to call me in the morning again….instead my morning 6AM call was from her dad telling me Angie had been stabbed, and was at the hospital. I make it down to the hospital only to be told, my babygirl didn’t make it, and when I said I wanted to see her, I was told no. Angela had 13 stab wounds and 6 defence wounds, which means the offender Daniel Jesse James Munroe made a total of 19 attempts on her, as she was laying asleep on the couch!!! Totally unprovoked…her future and life taken just like that, and now he’s NCR!!! I don’t understand!!!

    I’m gonna continue now with my VIS (victim impact statement). I’ll post the original and that will be followed by the edited one, which was edited by the review board.

    A VOICE FOR ANG!!!!
    I’m writting this for Angela Rachelle Louise Gail Holm, Baby Ang, my beautiful babygirl. I finially get to voice a voice for Ang; this is what the offender(Munroe) hear’s….VOICES, and yet as he committed murder you can’t tell me NOR convince me, Munroe didn’t hear my babygirl’s screams, DON’T DAN, PLEASE DON’T, PLEASE STOP!!!! Now he’s gonna hear my voice.

    I was taught by my mom not to use hate, to instead use dislike or don’t like; but as for you Munroe, you’ve taught me to literally hate you!!!! I HATE YOU DANIEL JESSE JAMES MUNROE!!!!!!(sorry mom)

    Angie was the second and last child born to me. She suffered and immune deficency that required her to get monthly gamma injections. In the months prior to her tragedy she underwent a cord blood transplant which didn’t take, so the Dr.’s did a second attempt with a bone marrow transplant. This time it was working for her. As I mentioned earlier the monthly gamma injections came to an end, right on her 16th birthday, Feb.24/09. Our miracle, no more monthly needles. She was winning her battle. The fear of losing my babygirl to the medicle procedure (bone marrow transplant) was gone. Our journey was rough but she was a trooper and never gave up, even on her sickest day and nights, and believe me there were many.

    As her body began to change, her life began to change. She was back at school part time, had a part time home tutor and was waitressing. Yes she had a job, something you NEVER had Munroe.

    Angie was my rock, my survivor!! After we lost Randall (her brother, my son) in Jan.08 she was all I had left and you took that away from me!!!!

    Throughout her struggles she would always seem to smile, sing and dance around. Always listening to music dancing around the house shaken her booty. I miss my babygirl so much. I miss her jumping into my bed on weekends, tickleing me and giving me butterfly kisses, which WAS us fluttering our eyelash’s together.

    The Dr’s admired her strength, as so did I.

    Because of you Munroe, Christmas will never be the same,I won’t see my baby graduate and I won’t be able to experience her wedding. When you too my daughter away you also took those away. Not to mention Angie would have been 18 on Feb.24. My life will never be the same because of you. I HATE you for this!!!

    May my baby RIP!!!! And don’t worry Munroe, HER VOICES WILL HAUGHT YOU!!!!!!

    (this was followed by a poem I wrote for my babygirl before she went into hospital, it will follow the edited vis)

    And now the EDITED VERSION!!!!!

    http://www2.macleans.ca/2009/07/23/angela-rachelle-louise-gail-holm-1993-2009/

    How many more murders have to happen before the law see’s there has to be a change…it’s no wonder there are so many murders being committed….my philosophy is
    Hey wanna kill someone, just come to manitoba, you will be NCR!!!!

    Not to mention the fact that IF I ever go crazy, I will be put in the same facility as MURDERERS!!!!!! These people should be put in jail!!!! Afterall they DID committ a crime!!!!! And a terriable crime!!!!
