News in Review The Trials of Steven Truscott

In 1959, 14-year-old Steven Truscott was sentenced to hang for the murder of a 12-year-old girl near Clinton, Ontario. His death sentence was commuted, but it wasn’t until late August of this year that an Ontario court finally acquitted him of the murder charge. In this News in Review story we’ll look at the Steven Truscott story and at the latest chapter of one of the most famous murder cases in Canadian history.
