Covering Diane: Public Interest (Episode 5)

February 27, 2018

On June 20, 1981, 23-year-old Diane Werendowicz was murdered.

The young nursing assistant was on her way home from a neighbourhood bar on the eve of her birthday when she was sexually assaulted, strangled with her own purse, and drowned in the ravine behind her apartment building. Neighbourhood children found her body the next day.

Her murder went unsolved for 17 years, until a break in the case and the development of DNA technology helped identify her killer.
