A massive turnout is expected for the funeral of Michael (Diaz) Deabaitua-Schulde, 32, a full-patch Hells Angels biker who was murdered in broad daylight at a Mississauga strip mall Monday.
All of Ontario’s roughly 200 Hells Angels members are required to attend and Hells Angels charters from across the country must also send members, a biker source told the Star.
A Quebec man with Hells Angels ties is already in custody on first-degree murder charges and police have issued a Canada-wide first-degree murder warrant for another Montreal man who has a history of weapons possession, fraud and possession of false documents, and is awaiting trial for allegedly intimidating someone connected to the court system.
The funeral of Deabaitua-Schulde, a father of two, is set for Saturday, March 23 at the Vescio Funeral Home in Woodbridge, according to the funeral home’s website. A GoFundMe page has also been set up in Deabaitua-Schulde’s name.
“God called Michael on Monday March 11, 2019, at the age of 32,” his online obituary begins. “He will be forever missed by his loving spouse, Ashley and his children … He will be held dear in the hearts of his family, relatives, and many friends.”
As his funeral is being planned, police continue to hunt for Montreal fugitive Joseph Pallotta, 38.
Deabaitua-Schulde was shot dead shortly before noon on Monday outside a gym in Mississauga at 700 Dundas St. E., near Cawthra Road.
Peel Regional Police chief Chris McCord said that Deabaitua-Schulde was the victim of a targeted attack.
Pallotta is considered armed and dangerous.
Peel Regional Police announced on Thursday that they have arrested two Montreal men and that Pallotta is their third suspect.
