38: The Murder of Harley Lawrence (NS)

Episode 038 –  The small town of Berwick in the beautiful Annapolis Valley is known as Nova Scotia’s Apple Capital. The town prides themselves on their sense of community, a strong work ethic yet laid back pace. The idilic little town was shaken when they woke up on the morning of October, 23, 2013 to find a local homeless man, Harley Lawrence, had burned to death overnight in the bus shelter on their main street. The circumstances surrounding Harley’s death were even more horrendous. He’d been murdered in cold blood.
