Episode Info

Episode Info:

On August 25, 1947 Walter Pavlukoff stepped out of his hotel room with a luger automatic pistol in his pocket. He joined over 100,000 people who were watching the PNE parade—the first one in six years because of the war. After the parade, Walter held up the CIBC bank and murdered the manager. It was the largest manhunt in Vancouver's history. So, why did it take five years to catch him?
