I live in a small Canadian province, in a tiny town. Near to my tiny town are numerous other tiny towns. Everyone knows everyone. For the most part
there isn't much going on when it comes to gossip and whatnot, no one is really all that interesting and the truth of things typically comes out.
In 1985, a woman was murdered here and found in the woods between two communities. She was from the city. For years afterwards, people informed the
police that a man from the community had bragged about murdering her, stabbing her, and how he'd done it before but no one found those women. This
man was well known for being horrific, and somehow rarely got caught for his actions.

the woman's killer.
