TORONTO (February 12, 2013) – This Saturday, W5 investigates a heinous multiple murder-suicide that left three innocent victims dead and Shayna Conway – the sole survivor – desperately clinging to life. W5 Host and Chief Correspondent Lloyd Robertson interviews Conway, friends and families of the victims, and police, in an effort to piece together the untold story of the “ROAD TO MURDER”, premiering Saturday, Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. ET on CTV.
In an exclusive interview, Conway recalls her friends Tabitha Stepple, Mitch Maclean, and Tanner Craswell, gunned down on Alberta’s Highway 2 by Derek Jensen, who then took his own life at the scene of the crime. W5 has obtained text messages sent by Jensen to his girlfriend Stepple in the days preceding the murder-suicide, revealing a dark and tortured soul.
Conway and other friends tell of the tragic night, when a birthday party and a pre-Christmas celebration led to Jensen tracking his victims as they drove to the Calgary airport, ramming their car from behind. When both vehicles stopped at the side of the road, Jensen savagely executed his defenceless victims, shooting each one multiple times. Only Conway survived and now describes that horrific night in detail to W5.
Robertson meets with families to hear their emotional memories of a parent’s worst nightmare: learning that their child had been killed by a deranged gunman. He joins three of the families at a makeshift memorial at the side of Alberta’s Highway 2, an hour south of Calgary, and in the ballpark in Lethbridge, where two of the victims were pursuing dreams of playing professional baseball.
“ROAD TO MURDER” is produced by Calgary’s Pyramid Productions, in association with CTV’s W5. The production company produced last season’s critically acclaimed and highly rated “MURDER FOR LOVE” for W5.
