Shannon Madill's Last Audition | 4
Crime reporter Nancy Hixt tells a story of an aspiring actress who mysteriously disappeared from Calgary, Alta., in November 2014.
That audition was recorded on video. Hours later she vanished.
It was only when Shannon missed a planned dinner with her older brother that her family realized she was missing and called police. By then, she was already gone for several days.
Her parents, siblings and husband stood side by side in front of the media at Calgary Police Headquarters to make a plea for help in finding her, and at one point, spoke directly to Shannon.
Investigators looked into her cell phone, medical and banking records, but all leads came up empty.
The days turned into months.
Police tried to prepare the Madill family for all possible outcomes.
Seven months later, the case took a shocking turn.
The disturbing details are revealed in an interview with police.
This Crime Beat episode is the first time those recordings are being made public.
Find out what happened to Shannon Madill following her final audition in episode four of Crime Beat.
