MANHUNT CONTINUES: Justin Kuijer now wanted for first degree murder of stepson
A Canada Wide Arrest Warrant will be issued for 43 year old Justin Kuijer who is wanted for the first degree murder of his 7 year old stepson.
The St.Catharines man is also wanted for the attempted murder of a bank employee at the RBC Bank on Martindale Road.
A manhunt continues for Kuijer who police describe as armed and dangerous.
It is believed Kuijer is driving a dark grey 2009 Pontiac Montana with the plate number is B-Y-T-E-3-9-2.
Niagara Regional Police Constable Phil Gavin tells CKTB the van had a pink decal on the back drivers side window which has a floral design with the name Ashley Simpson on it.
Gavin says the decal is removable, but it was on the vehicle when it was taken from a person known to Kuijer on Friday morning.
Simpson is a missing Niagara woman, but police do not believe the two are known to each other.
7 year old Nathan Dumas was discovered with critical injuries at 10:15am Friday at a home on Queenston Street.
He later died in hospital.
Kuijer is also wanted for a stabbing at the RBC bank, also in the 10 o'clock hour Friday morning.
Police say it was not a robbery or a domestic violence matter.
The female bank employee suffered serious injuries, and is in stable condition.
Friends of Dumas have launched a Go Fund Me campaign to help pay for Nathan’s funeral, however Dumas's mother Whitney has stated that there has been an offer to cover the costs of Nathan's funeral.
In that statement she thanked the community for their support, and also thanked the NRP for their assistance and compassion.
