15-year-old St. Albert boy killed in stabbing

Flags in St. Albert are at half-mast to honour a 15-year-old boy who was killed in a stabbing earlier this week.

Broden Radomske was walking with his mother in north Edmonton on Tuesday night when a man they knew stabbed the boy in the neck.

Police and paramedics were called to the scene where they attempted live saving measures, but Broden died on the scene before homicide detectives were called in.

Broden was a Grade 9 student at Lorne Akins Junior High School, with the St. Albert Public Schools division releasing a statement on Wednesday.

“Our hearts are with Broden’s family, friends, classmates and teachers as they struggle with this enormous loss. Our flags will also be lowered in honour of Broden. We are grateful for the time he spent with us. May he rest in peace,” wrote the school division.

The man who attacked Broden, 40-year-old Keith Landry, was taken into custody following the attack. Broden’s mother believes that the attack may have been triggered by a mental episode.

Landry has been charged with second degree murder and will be appearing in court on Friday.

An autopsy for Broden is scheduled for Friday.
