Example text

That said, I have gone to great lengths to educate myself in these areas, and have studied much of the current literature relevant to this topic. As I did in my earlier work, I would like to reiterate that the primary intent of this book is to serve as a didactic encyclopedia. Again, I have purposefully avoided glorifying the killers or canonizing their victims. Nor have I bowdlerized the gruesome details of these murders. To understate the magnitude of what happened would be dishonest, as well as potentially dangerous, since some of the offenders are coming up for parole.

Thank you for your hard work and dedication. My utmost gratitude also goes out to the author Robert Hoshowsky (The Last to Die; Unsolved: True Canadian Cold Cases) for sharing your account of the Bojcun/Danylewycz murders in the Foreword. After twenty-seven years, revisiting this tragedy must have been a harrowing experience. I thank you for adding a much-needed personal perspective and illuminating Marko Bojcun’s incredible resilience. Once again, I am highly indebted to Kay Feely, Andre Kirchhoff, and Elizabeth Roth for their wonderful illustrations.

Hoshowsky Memory is a peculiar thing. While most of us cannot remember specific details about uneventful activities like our Monday-to-Friday drive to work or school or what we ate for lunch from one day to another, the opposite holds true in times of tragedy. Unable to recall the trivialities of everyday life, we know precisely where we were the moment our nightmares became reality. When a loved one dies, we readily remember the time of day, sights and smells, and who we were with when we received the news.
