The Toronto Star reported yesterday that Hussain worked at the same Loblaws supermarket chain as two of the shooting victims - Reese Fallon, the 18-year-old killed in the attack, and Samantha Price, who was wounded.
And then there's this: CBS News was reporting all day Tuesday that "investigators in Canada" were digging into "indications" suggesting Hussain may have visited and even expressed support for Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) websites, though, the story said, there was no indication he'd been directed to carry out the attack. But Toronto Sun columnist Anthony Furey found that the family's spokesman, Mohammed Hashim, is a "driving force" behind the Muslim Brotherhood-linked National Council of Canadian Muslims and has committed himself to "framing a new narrative of Muslims in Canada" and creating a "national political movement".
Late on Tuesday, authorities identified the 10-year-old girl who was slain as Julianna Kozis of Markham, Ontario.
There has been no explanation for the knife attack, and the police are still seeking a motive for Hussain's rampage.
"While we did our best to seek help for him throughout his life of struggle and pain, we could never imagine that this would be his devastating and destructive end", the family said.
