Ep #115 Who killed Lollie Winans and Julie Williams? Part 1

Laura interviews award winning investigative journalist, author and outdoors expert Kathryn Miles about her re-investigation into the double murder of Lollie Winans and Julie Williams, which is detailed in her book Trailed: One Woman’s Quest to Solve the Shenandoah Murders.


In May 1996, Lollie Winans and Julie Williams, two skilled and competent backcountry leaders, entered Virginia’s Shenandoah National Park for a week-long camping trip. The free-spirited and remarkable young couple had met and fallen in love the previous summer while working at a world-renowned outdoor program for women. 


Lollie and Julie pitched their tent in a beautiful and remote location close to the river. They were brutally murdered, and their bodies were discovered in their sleeping bags. Their tent had been slashed open and there was some unusual crime scene behaviour as well as paraphernalia left at the crime scene.  Their beloved dog, Taj, was also missing. Why were Lollie and Julie targeted? Were they being stalked? When were they killed? How many other murders had occurred in the park? And Virginia? Was this a serial killer?


In this episode Laura and Kathryn discuss the victimology, the location and geography, the timeline, the motive and the crime scene in graphic detail. Listener discretion is advised.
