Craig ABRAHAMS – Case Overview
Craig Abrahams was born and raised in Mississauga, Ontario. His outgoing personality would lead him to study hotel management at Humber College. He took his first co-op job in Banff, and before long, he moved on to the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver.
It was during his time working as a doorman at the Odyssey Club in 1995 that twenty-eight-year-old Craig Abrahams decided to enter into the cocaine trafficking business. In an effort to quickly build up his customer base and establish himself, Craig began selling cocaine below the current market price.
On October 4, after almost seven months working at the Odyssey, Craig wrote a two-page resignation letter to management, in which he accused an unnamed fellow staff member of spreading rumours about him. There were other rumours circulating that Craig’s decision to sell cocaine at a lower price had upset at least one other dealer, who had allegedly threatened him.
It’s believed that Craig began selling drugs from his apartment in the 1200 block of Pendrell Street after leaving the Odyssey.
Craig was last seen in the early morning of December 18, 1995. A neighbour stopped by a few days later to pick up the cat that Craig had been pet-sitting, and discovered his body. It was December 21, just a few short months after Craig began selling cocaine.
Craig was very close to his family and kept in weekly touch with them. He was making plans to return to Toronto, prior to his death. His family is holding on to the hope that someone will come forward with the information needed to solve Craig’s murder. The only thing worse than having a loved one murdered is knowing that the killer has not been brought to justice.
