During the Spring of 1989, terror ran through the Miramichi region like a marathon. People living in the Miramichi slept with loaded guns under their beds, and the thought of, "Am I next?" in their heads, all thanks to one man... Allan Legere.
The Miramichi is renouned for it's natural setting and sense of community, it is a classic, beautiful part of the world. People leave their keys in their car and don't think twice about leaving their doors unlocked, everyone feels secure in their homes. But in 1989, that sense of security comes under attack when a series of horrendous crimes are committed, giving way to an unpresidented wave of terror.
On May 29, 1989, citizens of Chatham New Brunswick go about their daily routine. Little do they know, this ordinary Spring afternoon would turn into one of the biggest man hunts in Canadian history, where one man would be holding the whole province hostage.
Annie and Nina Flam lived in joining duplexes in Chatham, attached to a small grocery store that Annie had run for fifty years. They were very well respected people, and Annie was like everyone's great aunt. At 11:00 pm, neighbours see Annie locking up her store, with the upstairs lights on where her sister Nina was reading. Both women were unaware that there was a third person that had entered their home.
Several hours later, a resident walking the dark streets spotted a fire raging upstairs in the Flam residence. Within minutes, firemen arrive at the scene and burst inside to find Nina Flam badly burned but still alive. It was obvious that it was not a fire from natural causes, it was a fire to cover up a crime. She had been severely beaten and it was remarkable that she was even still alive. As Nina is rushed to the hospital, fire fighters battle the flames and search for Annie.
With indications of assault, police were called to the scene. After the fire is out, police find the body of Annie Flam in her bed, under a pile of debris. All that was left of her...
