Toronto Sun columnist Joe Warmington replays a very strange two days, interviewing the caring neighbor of a slain senior Monday, then writing about his arrest for the slaying 48 hours later.
"A strange set of circumstances for sure," Joe writes in his column today. "It's not every day you have a conversation with an alleged killer, just 48 hours before he would be charged with the crime.
"But I did - as did Sun cop reporter Chris Doucette and CTV reporter Naomi Parness, who with veteran cameraman Brian Weatherhead were actually called and invited up to the 12th floor apartment on 5 Shady Golfway, at the Don Valley Parkway and Eglinton Ave."
The headline is "A suspect with a smile."
Journalists can spend a lifetime on the job and not come close to that TV movie of the week scenario.
Great local tab fare.
