Carousel Sniper Victim


Jan 23, 2021

The blast blew out windows and sent metal fragments flying, ripping through walls and wooden beams inside the Prince Edward Island courthouse, shattering the stillness of a fall Monday morning.

It was Oct. 10, 1988, just after 6 a.m. The homemade pipe bomb had been hidden in a flower bed at the rear of the building. The force was so powerful it drove some pieces of metal into the judges’ chambers on the second floor.

In such a comfortably rural society, where crime is largely an abstraction and the people are suspicious of mainland influences, something like Loki 7 was a homegrown horror.
