202: Mad or Malingering? The Crimes of Mathew Charles Lamb

Episode 202: Mathew Charles Lamb was a troubled and disturbed youngster. He was born in Windsor, Ontario, unwanted, to a teenage mother and bounced from one relative’s home to another, never having close relationships with any of them. To him they were merely his keepers. The rules they laid out for him to follow were bothersome to him. Young Matt was incorrigible. He became violent early on, many of the other kids in his family and in the neighbourhood were terrified of him. After a number of run ins with local police and several violent incidents involving firearms, one including a shootout with police, Mathew Lamb was jailed  in the Kingston Pen for the first time — he was just 16. At 18 years old, only days after an early release, Mathew Charles Lamb, went on a shooting spree in Windsor, killing two strangers and wounding two more.
