The Wells Gray Park Murders
On August 2, 1982, the Johnson Family—dad Bob, mom Jackie, and daughters Janet and Karen, set off for a two-week summer vacation at the Wells Gray Park located in Clearwater, British Columbia, Canada along with Jackie’s parents, Edith and George Bentley. What was supposed to be a wonderful two weeks, spent exploring the great outdoors, fishing, swimming, and nightly campfires roasting marshmallows – turned into a senseless murder spree that annihilated six members of the same family.
