A safe-cracking ex-cop, the last public hanging in Nanaimo and a spy are just a few mysteries to unravel in Nanaimo’s history. Cold cases and solved murders that date back 150 years, rumours of hidden treasure and a psychic brought in to solve a missing persons case. Buildings and places that have vanished such as a house that sank into mine workings and a forgotten ski hill. Nanaimo Mysteries explores aspects of local history that are usually left buried and busts the myths surrounding some of our most infamous stories.
