ADMITTED FACTS

In the spring of 2019, ANDREW AYRE had purchased a brand new CCM mountain bike from Canadian Tire.  He was proud of his bike and used it as his primary means of transportation. 

ANDREW AYRE was riding his bicycle on April 25,2019 and attended Newfie’s Pub at the corner of Brodie Street & Victoria Avenue. 

At 12:45pm AYRE had texted his daughter and locked his new bicycle up to a light post outside the bar.  

JASON RAVEN was observed on three different security cameras stealing the bicycle after AYRE went into the bar. 

At 2:27pm AYRE discovered his bicycle missing and began to search the neighbourhood for it.  

At 2:38pm AYRE spotted RAVEN on his bike further down the street. 

AYRE approached RAVEN and a fight ensued. 

ANDREW AYRE is 5’5” tall and 130lbs

JASON RAVEN is 5’9” tall and 180 lbs. 

RAVEN had punched AYRE several times, knocking him down taking bank cards as well as other items and driving away with the bike.  DAVID GREGOROVICH had approached and punched AYRE in the head at least once as well as kicking him in the legs and balls as he laid on the ground. 

AYRE had suffered a cerebral subdermal hemorrhage at this point. 

AYRE regained consciousness and returned to Newfie’s Pub and at 3:16pm AYRE was evicted from the bar by DAVID GREGOROVICH. 

AYRE proceeded Eastbound on Victoria Avenue and had a hard time walking. He collapsed near the corner of Victoria & North Avenue. 

Superior North Paramedics arrived on the scene at 3:56pm and found a semiconscious AYRE. 

AYRE lost consciousness on the way to hospital and was later pronounced dead at the Thunder Bay Hospital. 

Provincial Crown Attorney Gordon Fillmore will be seeking a 3-7 year sentence for JASON RAVEN & a 4-7 year sentence for DAVID GREGOROVICH. 

Justice Fitzpatrick orders presentence and Gladue reports for both men who remain free on bail, despite breaching their bail conditions previously. 

They will be sentenced at a later date. The next court appearance is scheduled for January 17,2022

On April 29,2019 Ayre succumbed to his injuries in hospital.

Justice Chantal Brochu ruled on June 17,2021 that manslaughter & robbery charges could proceed to trial. 

It has been three years since the needless death of Andrew Ayre.  Family & friends grieve his loss while both suspects remain free.  

A date to set trial has been set for May 30,2022

MANSLAUGHTER & ROBBERY CHARGES FOR VIOLENT THUGS

A preliminary hearing for 2 violent thugs concluded before  Ontario Court Justice Chantal Brochu concluded today, Thursday June 17,2021 in Courtroom 206.  

The preliminary hearing began on Monday June 14,2021 and there were several witnesses and evidence presented in court.  

A publication ban is in effect on all evidence. 

A 52 year old ANDREW AYRE of Thunder Bay was violently beaten by 2 men on the afternoon of Thursday April 25, 2019 at the corner of Victoria Avenue and North Street. It’s alleged that 2 men beat him while he was down on the ground and stole his bicycle. 

A 32 year old DAVID VERNON GREGOROVICH & 23 year old JASON RAVEN were originally charged with second degree murder & robbery. They were both released on bail. 

Her Honour, Justice Brochu ruled there is enough evidence for a trial on manslaughter on both individuals & a robbery charge for RAVEN. 

Her Honour will decide tomorrow at 2pm  if there is enough evidence for a robbery charge on GREGOROVICH 

Both men allegedly committed more crimes while out on bail.  

GREGOROVICH most notably was allegedly involved in a recent home invasion at an apartment located at 230 Amelia Street West on Sunday, March 21, 2021 at 4:24 pm.  Officers arrived at the apartment to find a male and female who had been assaulted. The door to their apartment had been broken open.  The male had been struck several times in the head with a pipe and the female had been assaulted. 

RAVEN was recently charged with breaching conditions of his release order.  

But they still remain free on bail while the friends & family of ANDREW AYRE patiently await justice to be served.
