Island Crime: Gone Boys

Each season of Island Crime focuses on one crime story based on Vancouver Island. Season 1: 'Where is Lisa?' digs into the mystery of 21-year-old Lisa Marie Young's disappearance. Season 2: 'Gone Boys' follows the mystery of men who have gone missing in recent years on Vancouver Island. Host Laura Palmer speaks with family members, community leaders, criminologists, coroners, psychologists and the RCMP to put together the stories of these missing men. Could a serial killer be preying on vulnerable men on Vancouver Island? 'Island Crime: Gone Boys' raises a discussion about the challenges facing men who are isolated and marginalized due to brain injury, trauma, mental illness, or disability. Could the 'us versus them' attitude of the public on the island be creating easy victims whose disappearances go unnoticed by many?
