E69: Allan Legere

July 1, 2019

Allan Legere, commonly known as the Monster of the Miramichi, is one of Canada's most notorious serial killers. After being sentenced to life in prison for murdering a shopkeeper in 1986, Legere escaped from a New Brunswick hospital. His escape was followed by over 200 days of unpredictable terror, as Legere looked to wreak as much havoc as possible - it would end with the brutal deaths of four more innocent people, and leave thousands around Miramichi in a state of panic. In the second episode of our Killer Canucks series, we talk about the life and crimes of Allan Legere, the Monster of the Miramichi.
