Fundraiser to help mother attend trial of man accused of killing her son

Fundraiser is taking place to raise money to help Stacey Thur attend trial of man accused of killing her son Daniel Levesque in 2011.

An online fundraiser is taking place to raise money to help Stacey Thur attend the trial of the man accused of killing her son Daniel Levesque three years ago.

The campaign, “justice for daniel, help for stacey,” has raised more than $6,000 so far, with a target of $10,000.

Josh Bredo is set to stand trial starting next month on charges of first degree murder, attempted sexual assault and unlawful confinement.

Levesque died following an altercation in a condo in Victoria on Aug. 3, 2011.

Bredo was initially charged with second degree murder in connection with Levesque’s death, but those charges were dropped in December 2011 after a pathologists report cast doubts on the cause of death.

A year later, a new charge of first degree murder was laid against Bredo. In December 2013, the additional charges were filed.

The trial is expected to be lengthy and the funds are being raised to help Thur stay in Victoria as the trial proceeds, and to support her family.

Levesque was 20 at the time of his death. He had moved to Victoria only months earlier to pursue a career as a musician.
