Man who be­headed bus pas­sen­ger likely to stay on meds: doc­tor

Cape Breton Post - - CANADA/WORLD -

WIN­NIPEG — A Man­i­toba psy­chi­a­trist says he be­lieves a schiz­o­phrenic man who be­headed and can­ni­bal­ized a fel­low pas­sen­ger on a Greyhound bus will stay on his med­i­ca­tion. Dr. Jef­frey Waldman says Will Baker, for­merly known as Vince Li, knows that it’s the med­i­ca­tion that keeps his ill­ness at bay and Baker doesn’t want that to change. Baker was found not crim­i­nally re­spon­si­ble in the killing of Tim McLean in 2008 and is seeking an ab­so­lute dis­charge from Man­i­toba’s Crim­i­nal Code Review Board. That would mean Baker would be free, but Waldman says Baker would still work with his treat­ment team if re­leased.
