Cameron Mossaddad showed up at a Toronto-area hospital four years ago with a cut that needed stitches, bruises and a strange story.

He said he had been attacked with a steak knife by his 70-year-old grandmother, forcing him into a life-and-death struggle that ended when he strangled the woman with his legs.

Police eventually dismissed the tale as a fabrication and charged Mossaddad, then 23, with first-degree murder.

But as evidence emerged that he suffered from psychotic delusions in which his grandma was part of a plot by the Illuminati to assassinate him, the fake story raised an interesting question: Did it show that he knew the murder was morally wrong, and therefore he could be convicted as a criminal and sent to prison?

  Ontario starts merging health agencies, fires nine LHIN executives Ontario is starting to merge the province's major health agencies such as Cancer Care Ontario and eHealth under one umbrella and firing the CEOs of nine Local Health Integration Networks.

The province's 14 LHINs and six health agencies will be consolidated into a new super agency called Ontario Health for an estimated $350 million a year in savings.As a preliminary step in the process, Health Minister Christine Elliott announced Wednesday that five of those six agencies will transfer to Ontario Health as of Dec. 2.

A judge answered the question this week, ruling that Mossaddad was not criminally responsible for the slaying of Herma Parkes because of mental illness. Mossaddad actually believed the cold-blooded murder was warranted, and made up the self-defence story so the police wouldn’t think he was “crazy,” concluded Justice Joseph DiLuca.

The case underlines the complexity of the “NCR” defence, and how the sickest defendants may be most at risk of being sent to prison, rather than a psychiatric hospital, said Dan Brodsky, his lawyer.

Five other lawyers had been fired before him because they had merely raised the possibility of a mental-health defence with Mossaddad.

“He is a paradox,” said Brodsky in an interview Friday. “The more significant a person’s mental disorder, the more likely it is for that same person to say ‘I don’t want anybody to think there’s anything wrong with me. I did what I had to do’ … The chances of a miscarriage of justice increase the sicker your client is.”

Three days later , he was released. He began walking and was soon picked up by the police and his mother . At the main police station in Rome, a mob of reporters awaited the teen’s arrival. Paul described the homecoming as “absolute insanity.”

The case had “quite a history,” with two trials just to determine Mossaddad’s mental fitness, said Brian McCallion, the Crown prosecutor.

“He was very, very resistant to any idea that he suffered from a mental illness,” said McCallion. “I gather that every time a previous lawyer said to Mr. Mossaddad, ‘Look you need to be assessed, you need to explore this option,’ bang, out the door the lawyer went.”

The tale began early the morning of May 23, 2105 when he arrived at McKenzie Health Centre in Richmond Hill, Ont., with a number of superficial cuts, bruises and an open wound that needed suturing.

He told hospital staff and then the police that he was staying at his grandmother’s apartment and got into a scuffle with her when she complained about noise from the television, called him a “devil” and went after him with the knife.

Vancouver senior found guilty of murdering neighbours in West End apartment building

  Vancouver senior found guilty of murdering neighbours in West End apartment building Both the victims and the accused were residents of the Ocean Towers complex on Morton Avenue in Vancouver's West End.Leonard Landrick, 75, pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder charges in the stabbing deaths of 57-year-old Sandra McInnis and 51-year-old Neil Croker.

He was also apparently showing signs of depression, having recently lost his mother . In an analysis of some 350 mass killers going back a century, about 22 percent were found to likely have had psychosis; the rate in the general population is closer to 1 percent.

He was quite PROGRESSIVE for his time, and the Russian science programmes didn’t always believe in his work. In 1903 he published an article which proved that rockets could fly into space. I ’ ll be sitting in the front row from the beginning to the end of the play.’

It soon became clear the story was bogus — the injuries were found to be self-inflicted — and officers charged him with murder. They also found he had done internet searches with terms such as “signs of foul play” and “cops strangulation death.”

Only later did it become clear the killing was part of a complex web of delusions, which psychiatrist Dr. Misha Hartfeil told court was likely caused by schizophrenia.

Signs of mental illness began to develop around age 19, and he eventually came to believe his grandmother wanted to poison him. After discovering from a DNA test that he was partly Jewish, he became convinced he was a member of the Rothschild dynasty. And he believed the Illuminati — an 18 th century secret society that is the subject of various conspiracy theories today — was determined to kill him and had co-opted his grandmother to do the job.

He felt that news reports, graffiti and music were sending him messages about the plot, said the judge.

But it was not until January 2018 that his psychiatric issues came to a head in court. At one point he requested Brodsky release Crown evidence to the National Post and other media outlets, then asked to be tried in absentia. McCallion suggested he be assessed, after which the jury found him mentally unfit to stand trial.

He came back after a year of treatment and was deemed fit to face trial. The issue became whether he knew the killing was morally wrong. Hartfeil, a forensic psychiatrist at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences, testified Mossaddad clearly did not understand that killing Parkes was wrong.

“I accept that he likely came to believe that he had to kill his grandmother in order to save his life,” the judge ruled. “He viewed his conduct as morally acceptable based on the nature of his delusional beliefs.”
