The Murder of Richard Oland


I watched the CBC Fifth Estate episode on the Richard Oland case (Link here). So many unanswered questions.  I will leave off any theories or speculations I may have. I did not know Dennis Oland, but we moved in similar circles, I don’t want to rock this boat.

From the age of about 14 to 18 we lived in the South end of Saint John, New Brunswick. It was about a 10 minute walk from our house to The Printing Plus building at 52 Canterbury street, where Richard Oland was found murdered. I would pass the building – sometimes daily -when I’d go to the main post office to fetch the mail for the Admiral Beatty hotel, where I worked as a bellboy.
