Season Four: Wayne Greavette

When a package arrived in the mail at Wayne Greavette’s Ontario farmhouse, it seemed like an early gift for the holidays. Inside was a wrapped present with a typewritten letter addressed to Wayne. The note contained a P.S. “Have a very Merry Christmas and may you never have to buy another flashlight.” Wayne Greavette turned the flashlight on and it exploded, killing him instantly. More than 20 years later, there have been no arrests in the case leaving Wayne’s family consumed with finding the culprit . Along with Wayne’s widow and children, SKS host David Ridgen investigates.
