In the 1990's a secretive cult called "The Order of the Solar Temple" was at the centre of several mass deaths in Europe and Canada.  Devoted followers believed that by committing suicide they would be transported to a new life on the star Sirius.  Anyone who wavered was murdered.  The cult was run by a charismatic homeopathic doctor and a paranoid businessman.  Together they recruited rich, educated professionals from around the world.

On a cold night in March 1995, six teenage boys from Pickering, Ontario, disappeared on Lake Ontario.  As days turned into weeks…the six became known as the lost boys.  The mystery surrounding their disappearance has never been solved.  The lost boys have never been found. According to Durham Regional Police it remains an open, unsolved missing persons case. But police stopped actively looking for the boys many years ago.  There are some people who are still looking though.  In this episode of The History of 1995, I speak with Bruce Ricketts, a part time private investigator, who works free of charge for the family of one of the boys.

Music in this episode written and performed by Kevin Macleod.

In the 1990's someone was hunting abortion providers in North America.  Four doctors who performed abortions were shot and injured by an unknown sniper who hid in the dark outside their homes.  A fifth doctor who was shot by the sniper did not survive.  An international manhunt eventually lead to the arrest of a radical anti-abortion protestor.  In this episode of The History of 1995, host Kathy Kenzora talks with reporter and author Jon Wells who has covered the case for the Hamilton Spectator newspaper and written a book about the case called Sniper. 

Music in this episode is written and performed by Kevin MacLeod and Aurora Principle.
