“It seems any time a Native is murdered, it isn’t a major case. It’s just another dead Indian.” Justine English, sister of murder victim Mary Jane Serloin

John Martin Crawford is a serial killer who preys on native women. Convicted in 1996, Crawford is serving concurrent life sentences for brutally murdering Canadian Native women and is a suspect in the killing of at least one other Native woman.

Crawford has staked his claim as one of the nation’s most prolific sex killers with little fanfare. He is anonymous, his deeds are virtually forgotten. Who is he?

Journalist Warren Goulding traces the crimes, prosecution, convictions, and media treatment surrounding Crawford and his victims. By raising disturbing questions about racism, police actions and policy, and the media, he draws the whole story out of obscurity and onto the public record. This disquieting book deaths of these four Native women and challenges all Canadians to consider the possibility that in this country, some lives are worth more than others.
