Murder at the Shoe Shop - David Ridgen
Last year, the CBC's David Ridgen brought us three documentaries about unsolved murders -- Canadian cold cases. In each one, he uncovered new information that police had not discovered.
David began working on cold cases with the story of a murder in the American south. In that case the documentary led to the conviction of a former Ku Klux Klan member named James Ford Seale, in a 46-year-old murder of two young African-American men. After Seale's indictment and trial, there was a tremendous upsurge in interest in other unsolved murders, many of them Klan-related. And that has led to the documentary David Ridgen brings us this morning called Murder at The Shoe Shop.
