061 – The Crimes of Michael Wayne McGray (BC, ON, NS & NB)

Episode 061 – In the spring of 1985, 17-year-old Elizabeth Gail Tucker went missing when hitchhiking from Dartmouth to Southwestern, Nova Scotia. Tucker was the first of many murder victims, from a very diverse pool, of one of Canada’s coldest and most outspoken serial killers, Michael Wayne McGray. McGray was convicted of 7 murders, one of which happened after years in custody. McGray remorselessly admits to as many as 10 more murders and claims, given the chance, he would do it again and again.

  1. Bonjour Dark Poutine Gentlemen!

    A couple of comments:
    — Nun’s Island is indeed a posh area of Montréal.
    — Montréal’s Gay Village (known as the « Village ») is a nice festive neighbourhood consisting mainly of Ste Catherine street east. It consists of a few blocks of restaurants, cafés, bars,… It is now an important part of Montréal’s tourism attraction.
    — … but was a much dodgier area when McGray visited and selected his two murders victims.
    — St André street is in the Village.
