McKay was reportedly a student at Sagkeeng Anicinabe High School, as were the alleged attackers. The school principal Claude Guimond told CBC News that McKay was set to graduate this year, and told the news outlet he had watched the brutal video.
After seeing what I saw on the video, you know what? There’s nobody in their right mind [that] would do something like that, unless they were extremely high on whatever and just totally, like, out of it.
