112: Sins of the Father – The McGuigan Murders (PE)

Episode 112 – On a dark rural PEI road on November 19, 1970, the Vuozzo family, of nearby Montague had their lives changed forever. A drunk driver, named Herb McGuigan, ran a stop sign and hit the Vuozzo’s fan, killing 9-year-old Kathy Vuozzo. Kathy’s parents and Little Alfred Guy Vuozzo Jr, who was only two years old at the time of the crash, survived with minor injuries as did the drunk driver.

Alfred Jr. grew up hating the McGuigans, exacting revenge for his sister’s death almost 44 years later. With drunk driver long since deceased, he murdered the man’s son, Brent McGuigan, 68, and Brent’s son, Brendon McGuigan, 39; two people completely innocent of the crime.
