Episode 015: Gilbert Paul Jordan, a.k.a. the Boozing Barber, loved to drink and carouse with women. Between 1965 and 1987 nine women died of acute alcohol poisoning while in his company, while four others came close. Although police knew about Jordan’s involvement in theier deaths. his prey were the down on their luck indigenous women from Vancouver’s downtown East Side.
