In 2015, on the eve of Valentine's day, the people of Halifax would learn that they aren’t exempt from the type of nightmares that play out on American news stations.
A local 19 year old James Gamble and his girlfriend, 23 year old American Lindsay Souvannarath, had taken the first steps in a plot to shoot and kill as many people as possible in the Halifax Shopping Centre food court before taking their own lives, just like the murderous pair they idolized… the Columbine shooters.
In part two of a series exploring the life and crime of the surviving would be shooter, the enigmatic Lindsay Souvannarath will finally break the silence she has maintained since boarding a plane to Nova Scotia with murderous intentions.
In ‘Life Before Choosing Death’ Nighttime will present portions of an extended discussion with Lindsay that walk us through the life she lived before she began planning her death. Throughout the conversation, Lindsay will provide background on many of the defining moments that formed her evolution from an above average kid in a loving family to a young women with an unwavering believe in nazism, a strong affinity towards all things Columbine, and a willingness to kill and die alongside a young man who shared her antisocial beliefs.
