The 'Five Guys' killing

At the Kamloops Law Courts the 'Five Guys' case refers to five city men, each with ties to gangs and the drug trade, charged with murder in the same slaying. They killed career criminal Troy Gold, 35. Nathan Townsend was a drug dealer who assembled a group of thugs to ‘fuck him up’. He instructed them to 'get digits' meaning to bring back one of Gold’s fingers to confirm the assault. The beating was exceptionally violent. Court heard details about Gold pleading for his life. They slipped Gold’s severed finger into a black sunglasses bag to take to Townsend, and the men left. Gold’s skull, spinal column and leg bones were found by cops 12 days later, about 800 metres from where he’d been left to die.
Townsend texted two of the killers and told them they could take money off their drug debts — $500 and $250, respectively. Four of the Five Guys pleaded guilty to manslaughter and the fifth was acquitted. Nathan Townsend pleaded guilty on Dec. 13 to one count of manslaughter and one count of obstructing justice. He was sentenced to just under seven years in prison.
