Podcast Series Crime World

A Canadian former chef is before the courts in Toronto after it was discovered he'd been sending suicide kits out all over the world, resulting in what cops believe is at least 100 deaths.

Today, I'm talking with journalist Brad Hunter about Kenneth Law and the 1,200 kits he posted after advertising his wares on the internet.

He tells me how tragic deaths in Ireland, England and throughout Europe are being linked to Law who remains in custody as an investigation continues.
