A Canadian man who was found not criminally responsible for
beheading and cannibalizing a fellow passenger on a Greyhound bus has
been granted his freedom.
Manitoba’s Criminal Code Review Board announced Friday it
has given Will Baker, formerly known as Vince Li, an absolute discharge,
meaning he is longer subject to monitoring.
Baker, a diagnosed schizophrenic, killed Tim McLean, a young
carnival worker who was a complete stranger to Baker, in 2008. A year
later he was found not criminally responsible due to mental illness.
McLean’s mother, Carol de Delley, has been outspoken against
granting Baker freedom, saying there would be no way to ensure he
continued to take his medication.
Baker was initially kept in a secure wing of a psychiatric hospital but was given more freedom every year.
