British Columbia Murders free pdf Susan McNicoll digs deep in the police files to tell the dramatic tales of British Columbia's most notorious murders. In July 1924, Scottish nursemaid Janet Smith was murdered in Vancouver's wealthy Shaughnessy Heights. Her killer was never apprehended, but the investigation exposed police corruption and the ugly undercurrent of racism. In the mid-1940s, 15-year-old Molly Justice was stabbed to death in a Saanich park as she walked home one evening. The murderer was never charged, even though police were virtually certain of his identity for more than 50 years. In the 1960s, a well-known Vancouver radio personality slowly poisoned his wife with arsenic. What led him to commit such a horrendous crime? Susan has chosen stories that span a century of crime, from a 1904 murder in a Victoria Chinatown theatre to a modern cold case from Vernon solved through an unusual DNA analysis. These intriguing cases show that securing justice is not always easy.
