    Canada - Lawrence "Dick" Hewitt, 29, cabbie, Kitchener ON, March 14, 1937



    "KITCHENER — Lawrence "Dick" Hewitt was at home, listening to the Saturday night radio broadcast of the Maple Leafs game against Chicago when a ringing telephone cut through the play-by-play.

    It was late, after 10 p.m., and he didn't say who the caller was. Hewitt, fighting off a nagging cold, fetched his jacket, fired up his taxi and headed out into the dark.

    Four hours after he left his King Street East apartment, the 29-year-old cabbie was found dead — lying on his back in a frozen ditch off the Kitchener-Preston highway, on the southern outskirts of town. A bullet had pierced his heart.

    His taxi cab was parked a few feet away at the side of the road, its passenger-side door still open. The keys were just out of reach of Hewitt's cold right hand. It was March 14, 1937."
