At a remote lake in British Columbia, Canada, a boat glides through the murky waters. On board, 13-year-old Max Werenka is guiding the authorities to an ominous spot. But when the officials can’t see what lies beneath the surface that Werenka has led them to, the child bravely straps on his GoPro camera and dives in. The resulting footage later reveals something horrifying – and it helps to solve a decades-old cold case.

The story started in August 2019, when Werenka was staying at Griffin Lake – a popular holiday spot he had visited on numerous occasions. This time, though, things were a little different. While out exploring, you see, the teenager noticed something strange glistening underneath the water. And he thought it was an out-of-place object that had a distinctly man-made look.
