Events of Criminal Case
Killer and Motives
The killer would turn out to be former police officer Cameron Knight.
Cameron tried to deny the accusations before confessing, saying that he never intended to kill Nicholas and that he just got in the way. Cameron recounted how he was the one tasked with investigating the cold case but due to the lack of leads and evidence, he was unable to solve it. His inability to solve the case caused him to start drinking heavily and soon he was fired from his job at the police. Years later, Cameron heard from a friend on the force that Ruth was discovered to have fought with the victim before her death. Blaming the cold case for his life's downfall, Cameron jumped to the conclusion that Ruth killed Blanchette and discovered she was to attend the wedding. There, he crept in to find and kill Ruth for what he thought had done. Before he could get to her, however, he was confronted by Nicholas. The pair fought and Cameron shoved Nicholas onto the ice sculpture, killing him. In court, Cameron pleaded guilty to the crime and was sentenced to fifty years in prison by Judge Rodriguez.
