The Shell Lake Massacre

Rawlco Radio Ltd.

On Aug. 15, 1967, James and Evelyn Peterson and seven of their children were murdered in their home near Shell Lake, Sask. in a shocking crime that still stands as one of the worst random mass murders in Canadian history.

More than 50 years later, a new podcast from Rawlco Radio explores the untold story of the Peterson family and the events surrounding their deaths.

Over six episodes, you'll get to know the Petersons with the help of Kathy Hill, the only remaining family member, as she shares the most intimate details of their story in this exclusive series.

Listeners will meet the neighbours who arrived at the Peterson farm to discover the horrific mass murder and learn about the circumstances that led to this unimaginable crime. The podcast covers the RCMP search for the killer and the eventual confession of Victor Hoffman.

Brittany Caffet, host of The Shell Lake Massacre, grew up near Shell Lake and has a personal connection to the tragedy: Kathy Hill is the great aunt of her spouse.
