KIRO: Genealogy resolves Canada’s ‘Babes in the Wood’ case 70 years after boys’ hatchet murders

KIRO: Genealogy resolves Canada’s ‘Babes in the Wood’ case 70 years after boys’ hatchet murders. “A groundskeeper clearing brush from a Canadian park in 1953 made a horrific discovery: the skeletal remains of two young boys who had been bludgeoned to death with a hatchet. For nearly 70 years, the boys, whose murders became known as the ‘Babes in the Wood’ case, remained unidentified as their brutal deaths slowly became Vancouver’s oldest unsolved homicides. The advent of genetic genealogy has changed that.” I don’t generally index forensic genealogy articles because they’re usually brief and basic. This one is really extensive and has tons of external links.
