Inspired by a visit to Oshawa’s Union Cemetery, the story of the death of William Wells in 1893 has all the earmarks of a fascinating thriller; love, death, betrayal and more than enough mystery. And the best part of the story is it’s true! Was William’s death a case of pre-meditated murder or merely a tragic accident? Join Laura Suchan and Bill Eby as they share the story of William Wells and the trial of the Hyams brothers, who were ultimately acquitted in his death.
