Alvin Elliot, not criminally responsible in father’s death, wants status change
A man who changed his name after being found not criminally responsible for killing his father, Ian Buckwold, in 2014, is asking for some of his freedom back.
Alvin Elliot, formerly known as Alvin Buckwold, is currently being held at Saskatchewan Hospital in North Battleford.
According to Saskatchewan Review Board documents obtained by Global News, Elliot has now asked for his status to be changed so he can visit his mom outside of hospital walls.
While Elliot is currently stable, the board said it’s their belief that he continues to post a significant risk to the public.
His medications appear to be effective but that management is dependant on being in a highly-supervised environment.
Nonetheless, the board said since Elliot is not seeking a general discharge, his request is going to be reviewed.
