Made-For-TV Canadian news story
13 April 2004 | by phbalancedSee all my reviews

A well written documentary of the story of a Canadian con man named Albert Walker who bilked millions of dollars from his clients in the mid 1990s and hid in the UK with his daughter who posed as his wife under stolen identites. The efforts of one British detective revealed that the body of a local man found in the ocean by some fishermen was not accidental, but was one of homicide, and Albert Walker was the main suspect. Story begins with the discovery of the dead body and how Albert Walker fits into the scheme of things. Doesn't look back farther to his criminal activities which started in Canada. And there remains a mystery about the paternity of the granddaughter. Produced by CTV as a made-for-TV film. Recommended viewing especially to those familiar with the case in southwestern Ontario (London) area where this was a pretty big news item in 1997 and 1998.
