Episode 231: Gerald Vincent Bull was a smart cookie from North Bay, Ontario. He graduated from the University of Toronto at 20, got a master’s degree at age 21, and at 22 earned a Ph.D. in aeronautical engineering from the University of Toronto’s newly created Institute of Aerodynamics. Magazines touted him the ‘boy rocket scientist’. Nations sought him for his innovative ideas regarding long range artillery, ballistics and other military related endeavours. He was charged several times with breaching arms embargoes, even spending time in prison, a sore spot for the proud scientist. Eventually he became involved in Iraq’s ‘Project Babylon’ in which he was asked personally by then Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein to build a Supergun which would launch weapons into space, giving Hussein the capability of bombing targets 1000’s of kilometres away. This obviously worried Iraq’s neighbours in the Middle East. Before the project was completed Gerald Bull was assassinated, shot five times outside his apartment building in Brussels, Belgium. A lot of nations hated Gerald Bull and some, no doubt, wanted him dead, but it remains a mystery who was behind his killing. It isn’t clear who actually pulled the trigger in the murder of Gerald Bull, most likely it was someone either within, or acting on behalf of, one of those governments who’d felt threatened by Bull’s activities and alliances.

Episode 230: Over a period of 22 months, between January 1969 and January 1971, 3 women in Southwestern Ontario were brutally murdered in 3 different towns. These women’s names were Isobella “Belva” Russell, Edith Authier, and Jane Wooley. Police solved the case of the third victim, Belva Russell, a matter of weeks after the crime. The perpetrator, Gerald Thomas Archer was convicted and imprisoned. There were obvious similarities between all three crimes. For several reasons the initial investigators on the cases missed them. Gerald Thomas Archer got his freedom in 1985, when he was 65. He was a drifter and passed away in 1995. Five years after Archer’s death, his family made police aware of new information. Through DNA, were police able to connect him to the murders of Edith Authier, and Jane Wooley.  Gerald Thomas Archer, had been a serial killer and had walked free for the last ten years of his life.

Episode 229: In our last episode we learned about the life and first two murders of British serial murderer Dennis Andrew Nilsen. He was arrested after police discovered human remains he’d flushed down the toilet at 23 Cranley Gardens in Muswell Hill, a Suburb of North London.

On a hot, sunny Saturday afternoon on the 15th of August 1914, in a house near Spring Green, Wisconsin one of the worst mass killings in the state’s history occurred when 7 people were axed to death, immolated, and the house they were in burnt down. It was a case that on its own would have made headlines - but it wasn’t just any house that was burnt - it was the world-famous architectural treasure named Taliesin that was left in rubble, a house created by the internationally renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The victims were Wright’s partner Martha Borthwick, and two children, her 9-year-old Martha, and 11-year-old John. Also slain were gardener David Lindblom, draftsman Emil Brodell, builder Thomas Brunkner, and Bruckner's 13-year-old son Ernest.

Episode 225: In our last episode we learned that in Saskatoon, on the morning of January 31, 1969, a 12-year-old girl on the way to school stumbled upon the body of Gail Miller, a 20-year-old nurse’s aide, lying in the snow in an alley. Gail had been raped, murdered and discarded in the snow by her killer. As there had been a number of sexual assaults in the city, police were under enormous pressure to solve the murder and soon their attention turned to 16-year-old David Edgar Milgaard. He’d been in the neighbourhood and at a home nearby the alley where Gail’s body lay on the morning of the murder. Witnesses later claimed he’d seen blood on David’s clothing and gave other incriminating information to police. Milgaard was subsequently arrested and charged with Gail’s murder. Exactly a year after the murder, Milgaard was convicted of the murder and sentenced to a term of life in prison — justice, it appeared, had been served. We’ll find out, that was not the case at all. After serving 23 hellish years in prison, David Milgaard, who’d always maintained his innocence, was finally exonerated by DNA evidence that pointed to another man as Gail Miller’s killer, a man named Larry Earl Fisher.

Episode 223: On Friday, February 20, 1976, while on vacation in Florida OPP Corporal Donald R. Irwin, 39, a father of three from Kitchener, Ontario, went on a ride along with his good friend Florida State Trooper, Philip Black, also 39-years-old. Irwin was in civilian clothing and unarmed. At around 7:15 a.m. they checked an old Camaro parked in a rest area on I-95, north of Pompano Beach, Florida. Moments later, both officers were dead, and the five people who’d been in the Camaro had fled in Black’s cruiser.  Walter Norman Rhodes Jr., 26, 29-year-old, Jesse Joseph Tafero, Sonia “Sunny” Jacobs, 28, Tafero’s wife and two children, Jacobs’ 9-year-old son, Eric, and the couple’s 10-month-old daughter, Christina, were apprehended at a road block after having kidnapped another man, and stolen his Cadillac from a retirement home after abandoning Black’s cruiser. Rhodes’ life was spared as he pleaded guilty and agreed to testify against the other two. Jacobs and Tafero were both sentenced to die in Florida’s electric chair, but was justice really served. The case eventually unravelled but not before Tafero had his date with Old Sparky in 1990.

Episode 222: On Sunday, November 12,1988 beloved 36-year-old high school teacher named Byron Carr was found by his family dead in the bedroom of his home in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. He’d been strangled to death and stabbed. Byron’s wallet had been stolen, and ominously on his wall, written in pen, were the words “I will kill again.” Investigators revealed that Byron was a closeted gay man, and had been involved in a consensual sexual encounter with an as yet unidentified man prior to his death. It is presumed that it was this man who killed Byron. No one has ever been brought to justice in Byron’s death. Anyone with any information regarding this crime, no matter how insignificant it may seem, is asked to call the Bell Aliant sponsored Byron Carr Hot Line 1-877-566-3952 or PEI Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-TIPS.

Episode 221: On the morning of December 31, 1888, in Saint-Pierre and Miquelon, friends found 61-year-old fisherman François Coupard dead in his fishing shack. Someone had brutally slain Coupard and had mutilated his body horribly after his murder. A quick investigation led to two men, Auguste Neel and Louis Ollivier, trying to flee to Newfoundland on a stolen fishing boat. The pair later admitted their roles in the murder and were tried and convicted. Ollivier was sentenced to 10 years at hard labour, while Neel, against whom the evidence was more solid, received a death sentence, which was carried out on August 24, 1889. This execution was the first and last in North America using a guillotine to do the deed.

Episode 220:  The attention grabbing headline of the the article in The Province newspaper on the morning of July 3, 2013 screamed, “RCMP foil Canada Day bomb plot”, the subheading read, “VICTORIA: Two British Columbians allegedly hatch scheme to blow up legislature.” Since March of that year, RCMP had been engaged in what they called Project Souvenir, a complex and expensive sting operation to gather evidence against two Surrey residents, John Stuart Nuttall, 38, and his common-law wife, Amanda Marie Korody, 29. The RCMP alleged that the pair were Islamist extremist bent on blowing up BC’s legislature buildings in Victoria and killing as many innocent Canadians as possible on Canada Day that year. On the morning of July 1, the couple had apparently placed three pressure cooker bombs strategically near concrete planters on the west and east sides of the Provincial legislature buildings.  The pair were taken into custody in the hallway of a hotel in Delta, B.C. where they had used a room, wired by cops for video and sound, where they had built their bombs and spoken openly about their plot to kill Canadians. But, as the truth came out, evidence revealed that Nuttall and Korody were not even remotely the devious threats to national security they’d been said to be and that the RCMP had in fact, according to court findings, entrapped the pair. The bombs had been inert, made using intentionally flawed designs and materials handed to the couple by the RCMP themselves during the more than one million dollar operation to bust them.

Episode 219: In the first of two episodes released this week, Mike interviews Chris Rutkowski. Chris A. Rutkowski is a science writer who has devoted much time to investigating and studying reports of UFOs, writing about case investigations, and offering his insights into the broad UFO phenomenon publishing the annual Canadian UFO Report. Chris has authored numerous books on UFOs and two of his previous books, Abductions and Aliens and The Canadian UFO Report, were national bestsellers. He was recently referred to in a 2021 report to the Canadian Minister of Defense on UFOs in Canada as the person to which the government hands over reports of UFOs. He lives just outside Winnipeg.

Episode 218: The history of humanity is rife with stories of unexplained things in the skies above us. Handed down first verbally and pictographically by way of depictions painted on cave walls and then in written accounts, there are scores of stories about strange lights and objects in the sky. Throughout the twentieth century and into the twenty-first, as human technology has improved, we have been able to better document and disseminate information about these sightings. Over the next two episodes, we have a look at unidentified flying objects, more commonly called UFOs. In this first episode we’ll take a brief look at the phenomena itself, the stigma surrounding it and recent admissions by governmental officials of the existence of these objects. As well, we will peek at some of the stories from right here in Canada that we haven’t already covered. I have had to pick and choose some of the more interesting and detailed reports, as there are more than 1000 reports per year and the database of reports in Canada alone is massive.  Sources: Chris Hadfield on exploring Mars and the growing conversation about UFOs | CBC Radio Former Arizona Governor says he saw a UFO during the 1997 Phoenix Lights - Wikinews, the free news source The Canadian UFO Report by Chris A.

Holly, a grad student at Dalhousie University, was fiercely independent despite her disability. She had been completely blind since she was thirteen years old. Holly’s autopsy indicated she’d imbibed alcohol and that she had sustained “blunt force injury to the head (…) attributable to a fall” and that the manner of death was accidental. Police did a brief investigation determining that after cabbing home from a night out with a friend, Holly became disoriented and lost due to the combination of her alcohol consumption and her blindness. Somehow, Holly had wandered down two steeply graded streets away from her home and toward the harbour, had made her way through a hole in a chain link fence, down a steep embankment, and fell 7 metres off a concrete abutment under the bridge across Halifax harbour. They called Holly’s death accidental. Holly’s family and friends in the Justice for Holly group were not satisfied and pressed for further investigation into her death.  Sources: What Happened to Holly Bartlett? | CNIB Documentary What Happened to Holly Bartlett Seasons | Accessible Media Inc.

The Legend of La Corriveau

The Legend of La Corriveau

2022-04-1801:21:155

Episode 216: In Quebec, on April 15, 1763, after a supposed confession and hasty trial by an English military tribunal, 30-year-old Marie-Josephte Corriveau was convicted of murdering in brutal fashion her second husband, Louis-Étienne Dodier, and was sentenced to death. She was hanged with haste, three days later. Her body was then put on display in a form-fitting metal cage and placed at a crossroad where for the next five weeks, she stood as a warning to others considering domestic homicide as an answer to an unhappy marriage. When her cage disappeared locals believed that the Devil himself had come and taken Marie-Josephte to hell. It said that La Corriveau's spectre haunts the crossroads still.Sources: Marie-Josephte Corriveau - Wikipedia Uncertain Justice by F.

Episode 214: On November 25, 2011, neighbours around the four-plex at 51st Avenue and 47th Street in the town of Innisfail, Alberta heard a bang which shook their homes. Some said sounded like a gunshot, others said it sounded like someone dropping a heavy pile of wood. The dining room window of one the corner suites had been blown outward, glass was strewn throughout the yard. Police were called to the scene by a bystander inside the home and found a horrific scene. The home was full of smoke and debris. There at the dining room table, still in her wheelchair, first responders discovered the body of 23-year-old, Victoria (Vicky) Shachtay who’d died in what appeared to have been an explosion.Sources: Innisfail | The Canadian Encyclopedia R v Malley, 2015 ABCA 213 (CanLII), R v Malley, 2017 ABCA 186 (CanLII), Malley (Re), 2014 IIROC 10 (CanLII), Malley (Re), 2014 IIROC 29 (CanLII), Blast that killed Vicky Shachtay was a ‘targeted attack’: police | National Post Stepfather told victim not to open Christmas gift that turned out to be bomb | CTV News Friends, family gather to remember Vicky Shachtay - MountainviewToday.ca Disabled woman killed by parcel bomb — YouTube A defining case | Royal Canadian Mounted Police Bombing suspect arrested, police hold conference — YouTube Brian Malley loses last appeal chance - MountainviewToday.ca Pipe bomb - Wikipedia The pipe bomb: a modern terrorist weapon - PubMed GUILTY - Canada - Vicky Shachtay, 23, paraplegic, killed by bomb, Innisfail, AB, 25 Nov 2011 Financial advisor found guilty in blast that killed disabled woman — macleans.ca Bomb that killed paraplegic Innisfail mom Vicky Shachtay disguised to look like Christmas presents, Red Deer court told | Edmonton Sun Friends, family gather to remember Vicky Shachtay - MountainviewToday.ca Charges laid in bombing murder of Vicky Shachtay - MountainviewToday.ca Victoria Shachtay’s caregiver testifies about moments before fatal explosion Mysterious package killed Alberta mother | CBC News Canada ‘extremely lucky’ to face few bomb threats, attacks: RCMP - iPolitics Presentation to Finance Committee Re: Disability Tax Credit Regarding Bill C-462 | Council of Canadians with Disabilities Vicky Shachtay’s step-dad issues statement about her murder | CTV News Investment Executive: Brian Malley Articles Global News: Victoria Shachtay | News, Videos & Articles Red Deer Advocate: Vicky Shacktay Articles Victoria-Shachtay | National Post Unsolved Murders.

Episode 213: Toronto theatre magnate and enigmatic millionaire Ambrose J. Small disappeared without a trace on December 2, 1919, only a day after having made a lucrative deal to sell his ownership interests in his chain of theatres including the Grand Opera House in Toronto. People interested in the case suspected one of two theories were the most likely for the tycoon’s abrupt disappearance — either Small had run off and had into hiding under his own steam, or someone had abducted and very likely killed him. This case has become one of Canada’s oldest mysteries as more than 100 years later, there is yet no answer as to Small’s ultimate fate.Sources: Ambrose Small Case | The Canadian Encyclopedia Canada West | The Canadian Encyclopedia $1,750,000 in 1919 → 2022 | Inflation Calculator Biography – SMALL, AMBROSE JOSEPH – Volume XIV (1911-1920) – Dictionary of Canadian Biography Disappearance of Ambrose Small - Wikipedia The Doe Network: Ambrose Small - 1891DMON The Mysterious Disappearance of Ambrose J.

re :Millar/Mylgard show. There was an eyewitness statement saying he stabbed her. That's why the police focused on him. Mylgard was in the legal system and literally in the wrong place at the wrong time. Once the other guys bio markers were found, it should have been looked at again though.

Not all execution methods are equal in terms of associated pain. There's actually a great deal of difference between methods of execution and how humane they are. However, since the punishment is death, not suffering, we should strive to make it as painless as possible.

So did the RCMP set up the people because of the Boston bombings? Fucking canadian cops trying to make themselves look good on OUR ACTUAL tragedy.

Wow the police really failed in this investigation. They didn't even investigate. They had already made up their minds that it was an accident. They didn't look at the camera footage that probably would have solved this. They didn't collect evidence on the scene. They all need to be fired. Her poor family will probably never have closure because of the failures of the police.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Yes guys! I really enjoyed this great heart felt episode! Go for it again! So many lives lost, I am very sorry for all of the strong families. I believe it is just wrong that those hurt people have to deal with revictimization each time they have to face their losses when serial killers make multiple attempts to be released. That is just not justice whatsoever!

Missing White Women Syndrome, a derivative of the term coined by Gwen Ifils which was in fact *Missing White Women Search Syndrome*. It may have once referred to the wider media's selective bias in the few missing persons cases they give attention to. It is now since devolved into an appropriate outlet for the misogyny of Lefty leaning dudes doing their darndest to otherwise appear woke.
