Peel police have charged two men in relation to the murder of a 22-year-old woman in Mississauga.
Police said that on Wednesday, June 9 at approximately 11:40 p.m., emergency services received a call for a shooting in the area of Ninth Line and Burnhamthorpe Road West. Officers found 22-year-old Marissa Radstake from the Town of Walkerton, suffering from gunshot wounds in the parking lot of a business. She later succumbed to her injuries at the scene.
On Monday July 5, 24-year-old Richard Wuol of Kitchener and 21-year-old Kadir Aidarus of Mississauga were charged with First Degree Murder. Both men appeared at the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton in answer to the charges.
Both suspects are known to police. At the time of this murder, Aidarus was on Federal Parole and a participant in the Electronic Monitoring Program, while serving a cumulative sentence of 2 years, 2 months and 15 days since 2019 for offences including robbery, using an imitation firearm, disguise with intent and failing to comply with a recognizance, for incidents that occurred in the Region of Halton.
“This was a callous act of violence which resulted in another life being taken from family and loved ones. I am thankful that our investigators swiftly brought resolve to this tragedy,” said Nishan Duraiappah, Chief of Peel Regional Police. “Unfortunately, it also serves as another demonstration of the risk created when dangerous offenders are released into our communities to serve sentences. We need to do more to prevent these realities.”
