Written statement provided by the mother of Michael Bonin (provided by IHIT)
Michael did not deserve to die. He was a loving, helpful and loyal young man who had lots to live for.
The pain of losing Michael will never go away and many lives have been changed by this selfish act.
I hope those responsible for taking Michael’s life are held accountable.
I would like to thank the IHIT investigators for all their dedication and hard work in solving Michael’s murder.
