E68: The Highway of Tears

June 24, 2019

The Highway of Tears is a 724 km stretch of road that runs between the cities of Prince George and Print Rupert, British Columbia. Since 1969, dozens of women and children have been murdered or gone missing on or near the highway, often leaving law enforcement dumbfounded. Many serial killers and opportunists have made their long-lasting mark on the highway, unintentionally aided by government and law enforcement institutions that refuse to take action. On this episode of the podcast, we cover the highway's many tragedies, its origins, and the people who have attempted to address the problems that have led to so many tragic deaths and ruined lives.

If you have any information regarding any of the women or girls who have been murdered or gone missing on the Highway of Tears, call the E-PANA tip line at 1-877-543-4822, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
