Episode 4: The Murder of Glen Davis

Philanthropist Glen Davis was born into wealth.  He happily worked in the family business eventually taking the reigns of the fortune after his father’s passing.   In 1983 though, Davis survived an airplane fire that claimed the lives of 23 passengers.  It was this life changing event that turned Davis to philanthropy.    

Glen Davis went on to donate more than $20 million over 40 years to various environmental causes.  On May 18, 2007,  his life was cut short by a gunman’s bullet in a Toronto parking garage.

Despite hard work by the Toronto Police, the case went cold for over a year, until they received a break from a small time hustle arrested on unrelated charges.  The story he told police unraveled a story of money, betrayal, greed, and a senseless killing.
