North Battleford Legal Aid lawyer Andrew Lyster told the court that he just received “basic disclosure” and asked for a one-month adjournment.

According to RCMP, at about 5 p.m. on April 17, 2021, RCMP responded to the 5300 block of 50 Avenue in Lloydminster for a report of a deceased man on the sidewalk. He was later identified as Daxon Hornick-Schmidt.

An obituary for Daxon said he attended school in the United States, Canada and Germany, and was fluent in German.

Daxon graduated from North Battleford high school in 2014 and went on to attend Lakeland College with a desire to further his writing skills.

Daxon loved sports and played minor hockey in all three countries until he was 15. His first paying job was at the Boys and Girls Club in North Battleford.

Daxon also had a passion for music and spent a lot of his free time writing lyrics, rapping and recording.

Daxon’s obituary said he had a soft and tender heart, “spreading love and light wherever he travelled. He saw the lonely, lost and marginalized in a gifted way that most people will never come to understand.”
