Season 2 | Episode 6: The Last Fare

206 - Oct 25, 2018

"It's hard to fathom someone would exhibit that much rage — for what? Money?"

When 23-year-old cab driver Lucie Turmel was found brutally murdered, it shook the picturesque tourist town of Banff, Alta. It had been over three decades since there was a murder in the small community, and RCMP detective Doug Morrison (portrayed by Michael Shanks) was called in to take the case.

New developments in DNA technology should have been a boost for the investigation, but a town full of transient workers meant there were thousands of possible suspects and no solid leads. Solving the largest investigation in Banff’s history took an undercover investigation and the help of the entire town.
