EP69 - Finding Ben Kilmer: Part One

July 15 | 60min

This story begins with a beautiful dream at the top of a mountain. Ben Kilmer had purchased a 9-acre property on the Malahat and standing with Tonya by his side, he popped the question. “Can you see our life here?” The dream commenced but sadly, it was never realized. Ben became trapped in a nightmare from which he couldn’t escape. On May 16, 2018, Ben went missing and after a 5-month search, his body was discovered near the Chemainus River. We sat down with Ben’s wife Tonya to ask 2 key questions. What happened to Ben? How can we prevent this from happening to somebody else? What resulted was over 3 hrs of courageous conversation. This first episode focuses on Ben before he went missing. This! Is Obstacle Course.
