Paul Spilchen, 29 of Toronto was fatally stabbed at the Working Dog Saloon on St. Clair Ave. E., near Midland just after 2 a.m. Saturday June 16, 2018
TORONTO — A man slain in a double stabbing at a Scarborough pub over the weekend was set to be married in three weeks.
Paul Spilchen, 29, and a 25-year-old man were stabbed at the Working Dog Saloon on St. Clair Ave. E., near Midland just after 2 a.m. Saturday.
Spilchen died in hospital.
“He had his whole life ahead of him,” a post said on a GoFundMe page that has so far raised more than $10,000 for funeral costs and “other costs associated with his sudden and tragic death.”
“(He) was killed on June 16 in the most terrible way possible.”
Spilchen was to marry his fiancee, Annie , next month.
The GoFundMe describes him as “kind, generous and funny.”
“Paul was always there for anyone who needed him, ready with a helping hand and his trademark grin,” the post said.
Toronto Police said Monday that the other wounded man remains hospitalized. His injuries were initially considered life-threatening.
On Sunday, Michael MacKinnon, 42, of Toronto, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder and attempted murder.
He was to appear in court at 1911 Eglinton Ave. E. on Monday at 10 a.m.
Spilchen is the city’s 42nd murder victim of the year.
Since May 7, the city has endured 14 murders – half of those victims were killed by guns.
