Their deaths raise important questions about the Canadian criminal justice system and who that system protects.

Season 3: ‘Missing Michael’ is the story of Michael Dunahee, a little boy from Victoria, BC, who vanished from a playground in 1991 at the age of 4. Season 2: ‘Gone Boys’ follows the mystery of men who have gone missing in recent years on Vancouver Island. Season 1: ‘Where is Lisa?’ digs into the disappearance of 21-year-old Lisa Marie Young.
