A witness has now come forward to offer up harrowing details on the Toronto PATH stabbing in which 51-year-old Rae Cara Carrington, a mother of eight, was murdered. The tragic incident took place on Wednesday evening in the PATH, an underground pedestrian walkway in downtown Toronto. According to Toronto Police Services, Carrington was stabbed to death by an unidentified man at the PATH food court near the King and Bay Street intersection. Carrington was pronounced dead at the scene.

A witness of the crime recently recounted the details. The witness, who identified herself as Beverly to CTV News, claimed that Carrington had become hysterical and cried out in agony as chaos broke out in the PATH.

“It was eerie the way she was screaming, just like spine-tingling, blood curdling,” Beverly explained in an interview with CTV. "She was screaming her head off, hysterically. I ran to see what was happening and I heard somebody say that somebody had come up to the counter and pulled a huge knife," she continued. 

Others have come forward to comment on Carrington's character, with those who knew her describing her as a lovely person. Nancy Freckleton, a woman who worked in the building above the food counter where Carrington worked in the PATH described her as a "ray of sunshine."

“I said to her, ‘You know why they call you Rae? Because you’re a ray of sunshine,’” Nancy Freckleton stated according to CTV. “She was. She was a lovely, lovely lady.

Police are still looking for the suspect, who is being described as a white male around 20 to 30 years old, standing at 5'8 to 5'9. The man, who was spotted fleeing the scene, is said to have a medium build, dark hair and facial hair. At the time of the attack, the man was described as wearing a light-coloured baseball cap and a black hoodie, with dark pants and dark shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-7400, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), online at www.222tips.com.
