016 – Jane Hurshman – Life with Billy

Episode 016: In March of 1982 the small community called Bangs Falls, just outside of Liverpool, Nova Scotia made national news after the local bully, Billy Stafford, was found minus his head in his pick up truck along the side of the road. Someone had ended his reign of terror with a single blast of a 12 gauge shotgun. Billy’s death was news in itself, but who did the deed was even more newsworthy – his long suffering, regularly brutalized common-law wife Jane Hurshman. BONUS: Mike’s personal connections to the area, one of the officers involved with Billy Stafford and Jane Hurshman’s lawyer.
