Vancouver Island murder victim died from single gunshot wound to head, trial told
Dillon Brown died from a single gunshot wound to the head, a forensic pathologist testified Monday in B.C. Supreme Court.
Dr. Matthew Orde disclosed these findings while testifying as an expert witness at Richard Alexander’s trial for the first-degree murder of Brown on March 11, 2016.
The Crown alleges that Alexander, former president of the motorcycle club Devil’s Army, shot the 30-year-old mixed martial arts fighter in the basement of the Devil’s Army clubhouse in Campbell River. Alexander has pleaded not guilty.
Justice Geoffrey Gaul cautioned jurors that they would see images and hear evidence that might be upsetting but would help them understand the cause of death.
“You are not to let the graphic nature of the images sway you one way or the other,” said Gaul, advising jurors that they could take a break if needed.
