At the time, RCMP offered little insight on what happened to the young man, who was described by many in the aftermath of his killing as well-liked and “happy, go-lucky.”

His mother, however, has always contended that he was the victim of a swarming.

“There was definitely more than one person involved,” Tracey Savage said at the time.
