The charred remains of Philip Lake were discovered the morning of Monday, January 6th, 1936 by neighbour and fellow settler Otto Blakeney, who was on his way to see Philip for some provisions. After discovering Philip’s partially cremated body, Otto frantically searched the smouldering ruins for Philip’s wife and two small children. After only finding Philip and the skeleton of their cat what was left of the family’s two room cabin, he started searching the surrounding property. About 200 yards away, near Ballast Pit Road, lay the nearly nude body of Bertha Lake with a halo of blood drenched in the snow surrounding her. Her arms outstretched as though searching for her babies and a little further from that was the frozen body of little Jackie Lake, left to die in the freezing temperatures.

New Years came and went and the Lake family celebrated with friend and neighbour, Otto Blakeney, in their 2-room cabin. It was winter, and a blanket of snow covered the ground. Nothing that outdoorsman and woodcutter Otto couldn’t handle. Besides, Philip and Bertha Lake had two small children at home, 21-month-old Jack and 6-month-old Betty, so it was easier for Otto to come to them. The day together ended and Otto went home and the Lake family continued on with their daily grind. The sun rose on Monday, January 6 1936, Otto peered the bellowing smoke beyond the horizon, coming from the general direction of his friend and neighbour.

The mail was starting to pile for Gail on the hall table. On Wednesday there were 2 letters, on Thursday there was a small parcel and some small mail. But none of the items were picked up. This was odd, Gail always picked her mail. She was supposed to be at work but hadn’t showed up there either. Her work place called her landlord, asking if he knew where she was. Gerry, her landlord, said he would check on her apartment as she also hadn’t picked up her mail. He went up stairs and as he knocked on Gail’s door, it swung open, revealing a crime that will be forever engraved in Gerry’s mind.

When Thelma was 75, she moved into a 1-bedroom subsidized city-housing apartment geared towards “at risk” seniors who were still mostly independent. She lived there alone . The lack of security at the city housing buildings have led to increased violence and drug dealings. She was murdered and discovered 2 days later. December 2nd will mark the 15-year anniversary of Thelma’s death and her children and family still don’t have answers. What would drive someone to viciously beat and kill at 79-year-old woman?

Edward's body was found face up in the Grand River in Brantford, Ontario on June 27th, 1975. The cause of death was confirmed to be drowning. The case was closed quickly as law enforcement deemed that he died while swimming. None of these early conclusions made sense. By the time law enforcement re-opened the case in 2003, the entire original case file has been destroyed. In this episode we cover known facts to=date and speak with one of the two people who discovered Edward's body.

Edward (Teddy) Chadwick’s body was found floating in the Grand River in Brantford, Ontario (Canada) on Friday July 27, 1975 by two teens who happened to be biking by. The pathologist deemed his cause of death as drowning. His manner of death was considered accidental and law enforcement deemed he drowned by accident while swimming and subsequently closed his case. Edward had been in a severe car accident 9 years before his death which left him with lasting injuries, preventing him from swimming. Not only did Edward not swim, but he was also found with a bloody nose. In 2003 his case was reopened as new information came to light and law enforcement now believed foul play to be involved. Having exhausted all leads, the file was reclosed. The family believe they know what happened, but no one is talking. His Fiancée is still heartbroken with no closure in sight.

This episode veers from the usual and instead of speaking about the dead, we are speaking about the living. Instead of urging people to come forward, we urging people to sit back. To sit back and listen to a truly remarkable story of tragedy, sorrow, and also joy. We are speaking about DNA, but instead of DNA connecting a suspect to a murder scene, we are talking about DNA connecting family. This episode tells the story of long-lost siblings, living so close to each other, yet taking 70 years to find their way to each other. In this episode we meet Dianne and Doug, two siblings from a small town in New Brunswick Canada. Having heard their remarkable story, I’ve asked them if they would be willing to share this with you, and thankfully they agreed. I know this veers from my typical topics, but in a day & age where we are inundated with injustices and we constantly looking for DNA to help solve long unsolved cases of murder and rape, we are flipping the coin and showcasing a story where DNA helped solve a different kind of mystery. You see they found a sister. Dianne and Doug’s father had told them a few times, at various stages of their lives that they had a brother and a sister, but gave little to no other information. You see, he fathered these children during WW2.Interested in becoming a patron? https://www.patreon.com/user?u=27999414

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. This definitely was a story that put you on a rollercoaster of emotions. Glad they found eachother. You managed to give me anxiety, make me sad, make me laugh... and then my heart felt full by the end :) Great Job!!! Loved it!
