Convicted killer disappears

Darnell Darcy Pratt, 22, walked away from Victoria halfway house

Victoria police are hunting for a violent convicted killer after he walked away from his Victoria halfway house early Sunday morning.

Corrections Canada issued a Canada-wide warrant for the arrest of Darnell Darcy Pratt, 22, who was 16 when he dragged a Maple Ridge gas station attendant to his death in 2005. He served nine years in prison.

It’s not known if Pratt is still in Victoria or heading for the mainland, said Victoria police spokesperson, Const. Mike Russell.
