Murder and Arrest
On March 2020 Ryan shot his 64-year old mother in the head as she was playing the piano. A day later he drove east in his car which was packed with 12 Molotov cocktails, three guns, ammunition, and plans to kill Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Grantham instead changed his plan and turns himself in to the Vancouver police headquarters.
His sentencing began on June 13, 2022. His lawyer argued Ryan did it due to his mental illness including an intense period of clinical depression but prosecutors stated Ryan committed a "heartbreaking breach of trust," saying his mother was an excellent parent and he had no reason to fear her.
