Anatomy of a Murder Investigation

In 1992, Marie Dupe was brutally stabbed to death while working an all-night shift at a convenience store in Sydney, N.S. Despite an intensive investigation involving 1100 interviews and 230 suspects, the case stayed cold for 10 years. But advances in DNA technology later matched a cigarette butt found at the crime scene to the stranger drinking coffee at a table in the store the night of the murder. It took an undercover operation in Ontario and a police interrogation to close the case. The show features tapes of the sting and the confession by Ernest Gordon Strowbridge, who was 17 years old when he stabbed Dupe 40 times. It features an exclusive interview with Strowbridge, now serving seven years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder, and interviews with the detective and undercover policeman who succeeded in getting a confession from Strowbridge.
