013 – Babes in the Woods – Stanley Park

Episode 013: In this episode we tackle a popular unsolved case here in the Lower Mainland of BC. In 1953 two skeletons were found in Vancouver’s beautiful Stanley Park. More than 65 years later, the murders of what turned out to be two children remain unsolved. Bonus: Scott does a hacky job of profiling a murderer
