On this week’s episode of the Dark Poutine podcast, we look at the crimes of David Alexander Snow.

In April of 1992, Ian and Nancy Blackburn did not show up for a family get-together near their recreational property in Caledon, Ontario.

The couple was found murdered and stuffed into the trunk of Nancy’s car outside their home in Toronto.

The number 1 suspect, had allegedly been breaking into properties in the Caledon area throughout the winter and his aberrant behaviour had been escalating toward the dangerous and bizarre.

Although identified as David Alexander Snow, 37, an eccentric antiques dealer in Orangeville near Caledon, he eluded police.

Story continues below

In Vancouver, B.C., where he’d fled, Snow went on a two-week crime spree of kidnapping, rape, robbery and violence, before being apprehended by North Vancouver RCMP on July 12, 1992.
