Dad Whose Children Died in Crash With Drunk Driver Commits Suicide

A Canadian man whose three children were killed in 2015 when the vehicle they were in was hit by a drunk driver has committed suicide.

Global News reported that Edward Lake was found dead on Monday, the day after Father’s Day.

Michael Muzzo was convicted in 2016 in the deaths of Daniel Neville-Lake, 9; Harrison Neville-Lake, 5; Milly Neville-Lake, 2; and their grandfather, 65-year-old Gary Neville.

Their grandmother and great-grandmother were seriously injured in the collision.

The children’s mother, Jennifer Neville-Lake, posted on Facebook and Twitter on Monday that her husband “has joined our kids so they can play together, forever.”

Muzzo was initially sentenced to 10 years in prison, but that was reduced to 9 years and 4 months. He was granted full parole on February 9, 2021.
