The final homecoming of Lukas Strasser-Hird Part: 2 | 7

18-year-old, Lukas Strasser-Hird had aspirations of becoming a trauma surgeon. Instead, on November 23, 2013, he laid on an operating table, as a trauma surgeon worked to try and save his life. He was out at a nightclub, celebrating his return from a year studying abroad, when he became the victim of a savage attack. It took mere minutes for a group of guys to swarm him. He was kicked, stabbed and beaten beyond recognition. It was so hard to comprehend how this happened to Lukas-- and over what? All he did was defend a stranger. Police had their work cut out for them-- with so many involved in the attack... it was a daunting task. To make matters worse...the savage swarming was not captured on surveillance video… Would there ever be justice for Lukas? On this episode of the Global News podcast Crime Beat, crime reporter Nancy Hixt concludes her two-part series, and follows along as his family was dealt a series of debilitating blows in their search for justice in his case. Follow the emotional rollercoaster Lukas’ loved ones have been on for more than six years.
