Probe into murder of Bacon brother 'ongoing'

16:33 |

B.C.'s police gang task force is continuing to investigate the daytime gang shooting at a Kelowna casino hotel in August 2011 in which one of the notorious Bacon brothers was killed and three other people were injured. Larry Amero, a full-patch Hells Angel, and James Riach of the Independent Soldiers gang were both shot and wounded. Leah Hadden-Watts, 21 - whose uncle, Michael James "Spike" Hadden, is a full-patch member of the Haney Hells Angel chapter - was shot in the neck and paralyzed that day. Jonathan Bacon, 30, was killed. Riach fled the scene. T here have been no arrests. "The investigation is ongoing, but I can't offer any other information," Sgt. Bill Whalen of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit's Gang Task Force, the lead police agency on the brazen attack, said Thursday. "Where Mr. Amero is now, I don't know," Whalen said. "He was never in custody. I can tell you he's out of the hospital." Whalen said it's not unusual for murders to take several months to investigate. "On top of that, when you're dealing with gang members, you don't get co-operation with the victims," he said.
