Description

On January 18, 2003, police?alerted by a frantic 911 call from a distraught pair of teenage girls?arrived at the girls? Mississauga townhome outside Toronto to find their mother dead. It appeared the 44-year-old alcoholic?having slipped into a booze-and-pill stupor?drowned in her own bathwater. The death was ruled accidental by the authorities.
In the months that followed, however, police were alerted to rumors and reports that the teenagers had been gossiping to friends about the “accident?. Police began piecing together rumors that suggested the teens might have had a hand in their mother's death. In fact, rather than an accident the story that emerged portrayed the two teens as cold blooded, premeditated killers.
The Class Project is also an inside look at the youth culture that not only supported their heinous act but also encouraged it, guarding and reveling in the sisters? dirty little secret for almost a year.
Veteran Toronto Star investigative journalist Bob Mitchell is the only reporter with exclusive and full co-operation from homicide investigators and crown prosecutors, but also from the girls? own defense team.
