In 1908, a 20-year-old woman named Hazel Drew was killed in the woods of a town in upstate New York. The murder, which was never solved, helped inspire Twin Peaks cocreator Mark Frost’s contribution to the murder of Laura Palmer. David Bushman and Mark Givens are the authors of an upcoming book on the 113-year old cold case: Murder at Teal’s Pond: Hazel Drew and the Mystery That Inspired Twin Peaks (forword by Mark Frost), due out in January 2022 from Thomas + Mercer, which includes never-revealed-before information and a very compelling argument as to the identity of the murderer, and why he was never pubicly identified. Join us as we delve deep into the myriad of mysteries surrounding the murder of Hazel Drew, who, like Laura Palmer, lived a life filled with secrets.
