Mark Jarman

Winnipeg is known for heavy drinking. But how can I guy be so wasted he assumed he killed his wife! And admitted to it! Is beyond me. What was he drinking?

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.

Mark Jarman currently lives at The Stony Mountain Pen

This story appeared on episode 4 of the Season 4 of the television series Forensic Files which was broadcast for the first time on October 27, 1999.

Baby Innocence

On April 20, 1984, the body of a newborn white male child was found by several children playing along the banks of the Seine River near the CNR mainline bridge in the vicinity of Notre Dame Street and Nadeau Avenue in St. Boniface an area of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
The baby’s body was found in a shallow grave near the waters edge and was partially exposed as a result of the spring run off. The baby was likely buried there in the late fall of 1983 and stayed outside all winter. It appears that the baby was a newborn and was birthed shortly before his death and burial on the river bank. The child was wrapped in towels and plastic bags.
A white male in his early 20’s was spotted in the area in the late summer or early fall of 1983 carrying an infant child, but he has never been identified
 and no one recognized the man.
