The friends of a man beaten to death this weekend at Cape Breton’s Eskasoni First Nation are remembering a kind, well-liked man killed in what they’re calling a senseless act.
Jeffrey Nicholas says the attack against 36-year-old Dale Dennis seemed to happen in a matter of seconds.
Nicholas checked on his friend, who was unconscious and not breathing. Dennis died, and now his friends have erected a small monument to his memory on the spot where he was attacked.
He says when he told the attacker he had called police, the man ran away. We had to put him on his side so he could start breathing again,” Nicholas said.
