Grantham will not be able to apply for parole for the first 14 years of his sentence. The actor was not well known but he played Jeffrey, a young man who accidentally kills Fred Andrews in the series Riverdale. He also did small parts on Supernatural, iZombie and Falling Skies.

During the case, it was revealed that Grantham also had plans to assassinate Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The young man assumed this in his diary and in a statement to the police.

Ryan Grantham also planned an attack on the Prime Minister of Canada.

After committing the crime against Waite, the actor allegedly filled his car with three guns, ammunition, 12 Molotov cocktails, camping supplies and a map with directions to Trudeau’s home in Rideau Cottage.

Grantham didn’t make it to the Prime Minister’s house, instead turning himself in to the Vancouver Police.

During the process, Ryan’s sister, Lisa Grantham, testified in court that her brother is undoubtedly a dangerous person.

“It breaks my heart that she fought so hard… only to be murdered by her own son,” declared Lisa.: “She was vulnerable and Ryan didn’t give her any chance to defend herself. It pains me to know that he was a danger to her life.”
