Jessica was the quintessential small-town girl. Quiet, timid, nice and respectful. She wanted to live her life, have a family and grow old with someone special. Her dreams were seemingly cut short in August 1996. This is part 2 of Jessica Estabrooks’ story, Mr. Big.For this episode, I’ve had the opportunity to speak to both previous owners, Dawn & Tony of the Domino’s pizza where Shane and Jessica both worked. At the time Dawn and Tony had younger children at home and Jessica would often care for them as a way of earning additional funds. She was their babysitter. Remember when Jessica told her dad that she wasn’t babysitting anymore and was looking for another job? Yes, this couple knew Jessica and Shane a little more than a passing stranger.If anyone has information on the murder of Jessica Estabrooks, please contact the RCMP Major Crime Unit (south) in NB at 1-506-452-3491 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), should you wish to remain anonymous.

Let me set the stage for you. Today we’re travelling to the southern part of the province of New Brunswick, a small Canadian province the hugs the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. A place where you can take a deep breath and instantly relax as you inhale the salt air. A place where you can glimpse the aurora borealis at the right time of the year. A place surrounded by friendly people…most of the time. Specifically, we’re travelling to the city of Moncton and the village of Dorchester, and the stretch of road and waterways between the two. You may have heard of these two places before in a two-part series in season 1 of this podcast. However, our story today remains unresolved and even though the community, family, and law enforcement believe they know what happened, no one has yet been charged, indicted or convicted. I want to remind people that the opinions I might allude to in this episode as well as the opinions of anyone I interview are just that, opinions. It’s up to you to decide your own opinion. Anyone that we may refer to has been named or listed by media in the past. They should be considered innocent until proven otherwise in a court of law. But, maybe you the listeners, hold the key in making sure this person gets the chance to potentially be proven otherwise in court.Today’s story is about a young woman, Jessica Lynn Estabrooks. You see, Jessica and I have something in common, we’re from the same small village. Did I know her? Not really; I’ve seen her in town, of course, I knew of her, and we rode the same yellow school bus to and from school, during high school. She was a couple of years older than me, and at that age, you’re really years apart. But what happened to Jessica affected a whole community, in more ways than one. A community, that despite the maximum-security prison that sat upon the highest hill, felt connected and safe. Of course, the events affected Jessica’s family and closest friends the most, how could it not?Music provided by Scout Hurl -Twitter: @scoutlhurt Background music from Uppbeat (free for Creators!): https://uppbeat.io/t/ilya-kuznetsov/serenityLicense code: ASJ0S0N3EPDEH8HRCrime Article & Sources will be listed on the website, as well as additional photos: https://truecrimerealtimepod.com/Feel like supporting the show?

#40 - Yellowhead Inn

2021-04-0644:541

A heinous act followed by solid police work. A trial filled with a litany of labels against the victim, leading and tickling conscious or unconscious bias and unjust stereotypes, holding a mirror up to the Canadian populace. Coast to coast outrage, would the Canadian justice system change? This is episode 40, the Yellowhead Inn, Cindy Gladue's story.Cindy met Bradley the evening before. On this evening she, Bradley, and his co-worker Kevin stayed in the hotel lounge at The Yellowhead Inn, where Bradley was staying, until just after the last call. They continued to drink for the rest of the evening. Bradley was showing affection towards Cindy throughout the evening. The three of them left together and walked down the dimly lit hallway towards their respective rooms. This was at 12:42 am on June 22. Cindy was clearly intoxicated. She was swaying as she walked and would grab towards the wall and lean on Bradley several times as they walked down that hall. As they walked down the hall, Bradley asked Kevin if he "wanted a piece of this," referring to Cindy. Kevin declined and told him that he just wanted to eat his food and go to bed. Bradley then said, "Kev, what happens on the road stays on the road; it doesn't get back home."But when the door closed behind Cindy, as she entered that room, it would prove to be a tragic evening, ending her life.Music provided by Scout Hurl -Twitter: @scoutlhurt Crime Article & Sources will be listed on the website, as well as additional photos: https://truecrimerealtimepod.com/Feel like supporting the show?

"I don't think he left that house alive" ~ Dee. It was the end of August, the last day in fact, and Cory's day started like any other...at the gym. He was in a good mood and joking around; he'd lost a few pounds and was going to need to double down on some eating to gain that weight back. But, by the next day, he'd be missing, and the one person he was last with would keep a closed mouth.

Robert Wagner, known as Robbie to his friends and family, is fondly remembered. He was an enterprising and intelligent young man who found himself down a path that may have unknowingly lead to his brutal murder. About 3 weeks before he was viciously struck down, Robbie confided in his brother-in-law that he didn't have much time left in this world. And he didn't. By mid-January, his life would end. The case is cold, but the Major crime unit would move it to the top of their priority list if new information was provided. Anyone with information about this murder is asked to call police at 519-653-7700 ext. 739 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800- 222-TIPS (1-800-222- 8477).Huge thanks to Podcorn for sponsoring this episode.

Where it all started; Paris, Ontario. Although nowhere near the sophistication and glory that its namesake evokes, a beautiful little town none the less.Its main street hugs the side of the Grand River that runs through it. And, dotted along the river are trendy restaurants and bars. In addition to the charming shops, dentists, insurance brokers, and financial institutions is a cute boutique hotel, each room styled after a famous author.It's easy to forget that this was once the home of a man that became so enthralled with money that he eventually earned the title of Canada's Most Wanted. He even made it to number four on Interpol's list. Featuring a promo for Bea Nostalgic podcast! Take a trip down memory lane.

It was March of 1902. A little over a year since Winston Churchill made his maiden speech. A few months since Theodore Roosevelt renamed the executive mansion as the white house. Three months since the first Nobel prize in physics was awarded to Wilhelm Rontgen for his invention of the x-ray. And, just around the time when many Canadian soldiers were returning from fighting in the Boer war. But James Quirk wasn't one of those returning soldiers. James Quirk was a healthy, somewhat wealthy, good looking man. Then he was murdered! His head was removed by the coroner at the request of the leading detective and was not buried with his body, why?

On a bright spring day in May of 1974, on the side of a highway in the mountains of British Columbia, a small child of four tiredly walked several feet behind her mother and stepfather, barefoot, dirty and crying, dragging her teddy bear behind her on the gravel shoulder of the Trans-Canada Highway.A passerby, Robert, would pull over and give the family a ride to Vancouver, set them up in a hotel, and get the child's stepfather a job, and take temporary custody of the girl. One morning her mother would come and fetch her and the next time he would hear of the little girl, she'd be dead. The people of the city were terrified and upset. Where was Tricia? What happened to her? Parents started walking their kids to school, and teachers began talking about stranger-danger in the classroom.Joyce gave permission to the Brantford Police Services to tap a phone call she would make to John Wildman from the police station. Here is the transcript of the call:"John: Well, uh, what I can't understand, Joyce, is why you would phone here on Thursday night before anyone knew about Trish and accuse me, and then your friends, Val and them, phone the people downstairs on Saturday Joyce and say the same thing. Joyce: Same thing about what?John: They told Bev and Ron that between them and myself that we killed Trish, and this was on Saturday, Joyce. Now, what in the hell is going on with you and your friends – before anybody even knew what happened."Episode Crime Article, Photos + Sources: https://truecrimerealtimepod.com/Music provided by Scoutyboy: Twitter: @ scoutlhurtHuge thanks to Podcorn for sponsoring this episode.

This episode recounts the tragic tale of 15-year-old Elisha Mercer. Who's body was found at the bottom of a steep ravine below the Lorne Bridge. Time would pass, and Elisha's murder would go unsolved. But this didn't mean that the police didn't have their suspicions.

“This gentleman’s fantasies involving torture, dismemberment, and cannibalism with respect to his victims is also consistent with the diagnosis of sexual sadism, as is a history of post-mortem sexually related activities. […] This gentleman’s history suggests to me that this gentleman could be [..] managed on a medium secure unit, with respect to both aggressive behaviour and elopement risk.” ~ Dr. Phillip KlassenAbout a month after Russell Johnson Silently killed Alice Ralston in Guelph, there was another killer out there, operating at the same time, once again victimizing women and girls, in London, ON’s census metropolitan area.

I trully enjoyed this one. My heart stopped when he pulled her out of the window and the other side collapsed... so sad. Then I got goosebumps about the train part.... what are the chances you are on the same train and you finally get answers!!! lol about the teeth comment.
