Yaqoub Saeed Death – The victim of the hit-and-run accident that occurred on Wednesday has been recognized by the Muslim Association of Hamilton. He was 15 years old. Imam Sayed Tora identified the deceased individual as Yaqoub Saeed in a newsletter that was sent on Thursday evening.

East, a funeral service for Saeed is scheduled to take place today.
The prayers will start at 12:15 o’clock, and then there will be a special prayer for Saeed.

Constable Krista-Lee Ernst, who spoke at a press conference, verified the information that both juveniles are enrolled at St. Thomas More Catholic Secondary School. The child, who is only 15 years old, was taken into custody and accused with failing to remain, which led to someone’s death.
