Sean Drennan

In the early morning hours on January 22, 1997, tenants living at 101 West Ave North, in Central Hamilton, heard fellow resident Sean Drennan scream from his 3rd floor apartment. Tenants heard footsteps on the back staircase just before two neighbours went to check on Mr. Drennan, who was found stabbed to death in his apartment. Investigators learned Mr. Drennan, a McMaster student, may have been involved in low-level marijuana dealing. Regardless, the nature of the dispute or reason for his murder remains a mystery.

Anyone with information about this homicide is being asked to contact S/Sgt Dave Oleniuk of the Homicide Unit at 905-546-3829.
