MURDER MYSTERY: The Real Children of Bodom

You may be familiar with Children of Bodom, the Finnish death metal band who garnered huge success over their twenty five year career before laying down their axes last year. But you maybe less familiar with the most infamous unsolved mysteries in Finnish history, which the band derived their name from.

It was June 4th 1960, the year previous, the recently 'solved' Dyatlov Pass incident took place in neighbouring Russia and started a timeless obsession with the mysterious region. However, the mind bending deaths of three teenagers on the shore of Lake Bodom barely made a whimper outside of Finland.
