“Get me the Chief, quick. I’ve been shot!” This was the desperate cry of a young telegraph operator on a frigid Friday night in 1914. This week we count down to the hundredth anniversary when Billy Stone uttered his final words. To this day, the case of Billy Stone remains Whitby’s most infamous cold case. The unsolved case of Billy Stone haunts Station Gallery wherever it goes. If only the heritage gallery walls could speak—they would reveal who murdered the 21-year-old telegraph operator that night.
This Thursday starting at 7:00 PM, we’ll retrace that fateful evening and recall Billy’s untimely death in an illustrated account. I’ll be joined by local ghost hunters from PROO(f), who will share some curious findings about paranormal activities they’ve observed locally. Join us on this thrilling evening, when we remember Billy a century later!
