Raymond Stacey charged with 2nd-degree murder of Clifford Comerford.

A St. John’s man was stabbed to death allegedly by his co-worker on Jan 11th, 2015, inside a minivan that was transporting them both to work.

Raymond Stacey, 23, appeared in St. John’s provincial court Monday where he was charged with second-degree murder in relation to the death of Clifford Comerford.

The killing has left the family questioning why anyone would hurt a man whom they described as quiet and harmless.


“My brother Cliff was just as quiet as could be, he was kindhearted, he wouldn’t hurt so much as a flea,” Winsor said.

“He was brutally, brutally assaulted and stabbed several times, and where we are even unable to see the body — it’s that bad.”
