Mysterious British Columbia
Myths, Murders, Mysteries and Legends
Crimes never solved, eerie sightings never explained and paranormal events that stretch the limits of the mind–these mysteries continue to baffle British Columbians to this day:
- Ogopogo has its roots in Native mythology, and numerous sightings dating back to the 1870s have only fuelled the legend. Could a monster really dwell in Okanagan Lake?
- Lindsay Buziak, a young real estate agent from Victoria, was brutally murdered in 2008 after being lured to a home by two people posing as potential clients. Will her killers ever be brought to justice?
- In 1991, four-year-old Michael Dunahee was playing only metres away from his parents when he vanished without a trace in Victoria. Even with new leads, will we ever know what happened to him?
- Camels in BC? The stuff of legends, especially to Tanas Johnny, who thought he had seen the devil and died of fright.
- Dozens of unexplained sightings in recent years have occurred in the Houston-Smithers-Terrace region, creating a BC UFO Triangle. Why is the area the UFO capital of Canada?
- Charismatic Doukhobor leader Peter Verigin was killed in a massive train explosion between Castlegar and Grand Forks in 1924. Was his death a tragic accident or a sinister murder plot?
