Default Local Cases UM Could Have Covered

I recently came across a podcast that is a locally based mystery show and the first episode dealt with a very well known murder case that I imagine that nobody on this board outside of Canada heard about.

It is known as the 1992 McDonalds Murders and it occurred in Sydney River, Nova Scotia (Canada). For those who didn't know, three McDonald's employees were senselessly and brutally murdered and a fourth was left permanently disabled. I obviously knew of this from my childhood but had no idea how many details were not on the evening news. I won't spoil anything here but I will say the details of how one employee in particular was killed sent chills down my spine and the fact that one of the three killers is now free and living a 'very good' life makes me angry beyond words.

Since this happened in 1992 and the killers were not caught right away, this would have been a very good segment to air back in the day, especially given the similarities to the Las Cruses Bowling Alley case.

On a happier note, there was also another case that sounded eerily similar to the Christine Skubish segment where a 3 year old child was found in alive in a secluded area and his mother was killed instantly after driving off a icy cliff. This happened in Lower Cove, Nova Scotia on Christmas Day 2001. Would have been a good segment for the final season.

Does anybody else have any local cases that would have been a better fit from UM than the Magic Rock or Men in Black segments?

I "remember" the McDonald's case. Though I had forgotten about it. That would've been a good one for UM. We have a local unsolved murder, the murder of Dawn Svocak back in 1984. She was missing for a few months, then a farmer found her body in his field. There was a person of interest in the case, but they couldn't get any hard evidence on him. I actually know a guy who was questioned several times, because the POI had disposed of his car at a junk yard that my friend worked at, at the time. But by the time police had investigated that lead, the car had already been crushed and scrapped. To this day, the murder is still officially unsolved, and the POI is now dead.

Las Cruces is about 30 min away from where I live (El Paso, TX). About 15 yrs ago a little girl was kidnapped from Wal-Mart. The surveillance videos caught her walking out with a man. He raped her, burned her face & hands & dumped her body in a dumpster. Eventually, they caught him and he was given the death penalty. John Walsh even aired it on AMW. The good thing is they caught him but if they hadn’t, it would’ve been a good case for UM

Google "Charley Project New Lisbon Developmental Centers". I have always found these cases interesting and worthy of further UM attention.
