Episode 032: On August 14 1980, 20-year-old Vancouver B.C. born Playboy Playmate of the year and former Dairy Queen employee, Dorothy Stratten, was found dead of a single shotgun blast to her head. The perpetrator, her estranged husband, Paul Leslie Snider, lay dead nearby of a self inflicted wound by way of the same firearm. Dorothy’s star had only just begun to rise and was snuffed out far too soon.
