May 6, 1942

Murder never makes any sense, and when the victim is so young and is snuffed out by another young adult, the tragedy seems doubled.

In 1941, when the country was at war with foreign fiends, a local fiend was lurking in Edmonton, Alberta.

On November 15, 1941, 24-year-old warehouse worker, Chester Johnston, stabbed 14-year-old Dorothy Hammond to death.

Thus, on May 6, 1942, Chester Johnston was hanged for the murder at Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada.
