What happened to the Martin Family? Part Two: Two Girls and a Gun

Martin Family Mystery

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The official story remains the same: five members of the Martin Family accidentally drove into the Columbia River in December of 1958 and died.

However, the discovery of a damaged gun and two bodies floating to the surface seem to point to something more sinister after the disappearance of Ken Martin, his wife Barbara, and their three young girls Barbara, Virginia and Susan after the family left for the Columbia River Gorge to collect Christmas greenery.

Detective Walter Graven is racing against the clock to put the pieces of the puzzle together before it’s too late.

Follow along with the KOIN Podcast Network as noted anchorman Jeff Gianola and local author J.B. Fisher take an in-depth look at the Martin Family Mystery.
