Maxwell’s mother, Karla Begley, is quoted in the report as stating to the Toronto Star, “It made me sick to my stomach to think that somebody hated my son that much and they didn’t even know him… But they just hated him because he was different. That’s the only reason they had to hate him.”

Authorities are reportedly investigating the matter.
