Waterloo Warrior fatally stabbed on weekend

Waterloo Warrior, Lam Diing, was fatally stabbed this past weekend, according to the Record.

Official Statement from the University of Waterloo:

Students, faculty and staff are mourning the loss of student Lam Diing, who died tragically early Sunday morning in Kitchener.

“Lam’s passing will be felt by our entire campus community and most directly by the members of our football program,” said Feridun Hamdullahpur, president and vice-chancellor at Waterloo. “Our hearts go out to Lam’s family. The University will provide any and all assistance it can to them in their time of grief.”

Diing was in his third year in the Faculty of Arts and was a member of the varsity football program.

“The connection Lam had to many of his fellow student-athletes and coaches is why this is devastating to so many of us,” said Roly Webster, director of athletics and recreation at Waterloo. “We will now need to draw on the collective strength of the Warrior family to support each other as we grieve this loss.”

“Lam was a tremendous student athlete who made those around him better with his work ethic and glowing smile,” added Chris Bertoia, head coach of Waterloo’s football program. “The Waterloo football family expresses our deepest sympathies to those who knew Lam, who will be forever missed on and off the field.”

Diing’s death is the subject of a police investigation and, as such, the University is not providing any further comment.
