    Nova Scotia RCMP did not respond to questions on Wednesday about what became of the money or whether (the killer) was connected to any organized crime investigations. (The killer) often spent time with Hells Angels, and he had at least one associate with links to organized crime. Sources say he was friendly with Peter Alan Griffon, a Portapique neighbour linked to a drug trafficking ring operated by the Mexican cartel La Familia and elements of the ruthless multi-national El Salvadoran gang MS-13. Griffon plead guilty and was sentenced to seven years in prison on Dec. 12, 2017, for possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and weapons charges. Police issued a second warrant for Griffon’s arrest in 2015 after he returned to Nova Scotia, in violation of his bail conditions. He is believed to have been living in Portapique with his parents since 2019. (The killer) and Griffon were part of a group of drinking buddies in the Portapique area. Griffon is the second cousin of one of the victims, Sean McLeod, who was murdered along with his partner, Alanna Jenkins, on the morning of April 19 in West Wentworth, N.S. McLeod was a corrections officer at the Springhill Institution, a federal medium-security prison, while Jenkins worked in a federal corrections institute for women in Truro. It is not known if Griffon was imprisoned at Springhill.

    If only it were illegal to kill people in Canada, this would not have happened.
