In 1990, Shirley Andronowich’s body was found one morning after being raped, murdered with a concrete block, and mutilated in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Witnesses told police that Shirley and her husband Ed argued in a bar the night before.
Police first suspected Ed and arrested him after he confessed to the murder. However, the forensic evidence proved that Ed was innocent. A year later, police received a call about a man named Mark Jarman, who talked about being connected to Shirley’s murder. Police discovered that his fingerprint matched the latent print left on the concrete block. Jarman was convicted of her murder.
