Janet Chandler Podcast

In 2004, a film class at Hope College in Holland, Michigan, set out to make a documentary on the 1978 cold case murder of 22-year-old Janet Chandler. Janet was known by her family to be a conservative woman of strong Christian faith and morals, but an investigation into her murder showed there was another side to Janet that she kept hidden from her parents. On a cold January night, while working as the front clerk at the Blue Mill Inn Hotel, Janet was kidnapped. Two days later her naked, brutalized body was found buried in the snow. For almost 30 years, at least 25 witnesses were able to keep secret the horrific details of the last 17 hours of Janet’s life. The betrayal, humiliation, and brutality of this crime cannot be understated.

When the family returned home, however, they were met with unspeakable terror–there was a man in their home whose plan was to rob the home then execute them all. When police arrived on the scene, they started to notice the robbery looked staged, and when they started to dig around in Bart’s background, they found things that just didn’t add up to what appeared to happen that night in December. The police would discover a plan that was over two years in the making about a son whose greed for money was more important to him than his own family.
