The Unsolved Murder of Beverly Lynn Smith is an intriguing tale that explores the unending conundrum of ethics and accountability in this provocative criminal case, woven together from firsthand recollections, expert interviews, family archives, and rare access to key individuals.

The Amazon Original docuseries, directed by Nathalie Bibeau (The Walrus and the Whistleblower), delves into the elaborate and contentious sting operation that was intended to investigate a suspect in the murder of 22-year-old Beverly Lynn Smith – but only raised more questions – and a decades-long search for justice.

Beverly Lynn Smith, her husband, and their 10-month-old baby lived in a rural farmhouse in the industrial city of Oshawa, Ontario. She was murdered in her own kitchen on December 9, 1974. Since the night of the murder almost 50 years ago, Alan Smith (no related to Beverly Lynn Smith) has been a crucial figure in the enquiry. Smith became a significant person of interest – and the subject of a contentious police enquiry – when the results of a polygraph test sparked suspicions. Smith has maintained his innocence throughout all of the twists and turns.
