During the winter of 1992, a man nicknamed the House Hermit by police, was committing strange break and enters in the community of Caledon Ontario.
Several months later, Nancy and Ian Blackburn suddenly disappeared from their cottage in Orangeville. They would be found murdered a week later, inside the trunk of Nancy’s car outside of the couple’s Toronto home.
Police quickly focused their investigation on David Alexander Snow, an eccentric local who owned an antique shop in Orangeville.
He would evade capture for weeks, going on the run and eventually turning up in Vancouver, British Columbia, where he went on a two week crime spree before being apprehended, and later declared a dangerous offender by the courts.
