Hamilton Police are trying to piece together events that led to the stabbing death of 20-year-old Brock Beck in a Binbrook driveway. The incident took place a few steps from the village’s main intersection at Binbrook Road and Highway 56.
Police say they were called, just shortly before 2:00 am, to 3063 Binbrook Road, Binbrook for reports of a disturbance. Upon arrival, police located the young man, suffering injuries from a stabbing attack. Beck was transported to the hospital where he died as a result of his injuries. A 16-year-old youth was also injured in the attack, but was treated at the hospital and quickly released. Beck was a mental health student attending college in Nova Scotia. He was a resident of Binbrook but he was assaulted at another address in Binbrook.
Hamilton Police are asking residents and businesses to check their surveillance cameras between the hour of 1:30 am and 2:30 am for any vehicles travelling on Binbrook Road. Beck’s vehicle is a 2011 grey Ford Fusion. The suspects in the attack are believed to have been driving a vehicle closely behind Beck’s vehicle. The suspect vehicle can only be described as a four-door sedan at this time.
There is no known motive at this time for this murder and police continue to investigate. Police believe the suspects pulled up behind Beck’s vehicle just prior to 2:00 am and confronted Beck and his friend in the driveway of the residence. It is unknown how many suspects are involved and there is no description at this time. Investigators are hopeful that an image of the suspect vehicle will be captured at which time it will be released to the public for assistance in identifying.
