Visitor Tips and News About Police Museum: The Milkshake Murderer
An interesting collection of Vancouver's crime artifacts. Learn how to mark cards. Visit a gallery of autopsy remains. See evidence from the White Spot Murders, in which a man murdered his wife with a series of arsenic-laced milkshakes.[Martha Hickson, 08/01/2001]
This is reportedly the only police museum in Canada, and among its displays is the hatchet used in Vancouver's "Babes in the Woods" murders. From the museum literature: "If the Coroner's Forensic Exhibit intrigues you, be sure to investigate the old morgue's cooler where many cadavers have been kept."
