Etobicoke murder victim had been stabbed, set on fire
Bridget Takyi, a 27-year-old mother of two, was on her way to work when she was stabbed and then set ablaze on an Etobicoke street on Saturday.
Bridget Takyi was supposed to be planning a trip to Disney World with her two little boys and best high school friend.
Instead, her friend will be helping plan the 27-year-old woman’s funeral.
Takyi’s body was found Saturday on Richgrove Dr., in the Martin Grove Rd. and Eglinton Ave. W. area.
Her identity couldn’t initially be confirmed because she was burned so badly she was “virtually unrecognizable,” police said. She was the city’s third homicide victim of the year.read more
