Video­tape shows mur­der vic­tim walk­ing into apart­ment

Cape Breton Post - - Cape Breton / Province -

HAL­I­FAX — A Hal­i­fax jury watched the last known sight­ing of a Dal­housie Univer­sity stu­dent Thurs­day — Tay­lor Sam­son walked into his al­leged killer’s apart­ment, but was never seen walk­ing out. The surveil­lance tape was shown at the first-de­gree mur­der trial of med­i­cal stu­dent Wil­liam San­deson, who is ac­cused of killing the 22-year-old dur­ing a drug deal. The video cap­tures Sam­son fol­low­ing the ac­cused into San­deson’s apart­ment on Aug. 15, 2015, car­ry­ing a big black bag.

He is never viewed leav­ing the apart­ment, but San­deson is seen car­ry­ing out garbage bags to his ve­hi­cle.

Sam­son was sup­posed to bring 20 pounds of mar­i­juana to sell to San­deson. The 24-year-old told po­lice Sam­son was shot in the back of the head by two men dressed in black who came into his apart­ment.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Roger Sayer, an investigator in the case, tes­ti­fied as the tapes were played for the jury.

He said a foren­sic team found the tape, blood and a bul­let in the frame of the kitchen door. The trial re­sumes on Mon­day.
