Police officer and child. Police Museum: The Milkshake Murderer

I live a block from this museum and have never visited. I'm not sure if the little statue out front, of the friendly officer and the slightly creepy kid, has attracted or repelled me.

Vancouver 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."
