Rank #1: Ep. 6 - Haste and Honor

Podcast cover

On January 1, 2008 a father would do the unspeakable as his two teenage daughters would never make it out of his vehicle alive. Later, many will question what they could have done or should have done to prevent such a senseless tragedy. How does one keep their head above water in the throes of fear and power? Where do we go when the ones who have the responsibility to protect us are the very thing we need protection from?

Rank #2: Ep. 5 - When the Bough Breaks

Podcast cover
Read more

Both the US and Canada would be shaken by the senseless murder of Andrew Bagby in 2001. We like to believe that cases with evidence as straight-forward and clear cut as this begin and end simply in the legal system with the necessary consequences delivered to the perpetrator. However, this case is one of the most convoluted and confusing, covered with injustice and senseless tragedy. It would remain in headlines for nearly a decade, sparking challenge and change for not only the lives involved, but also the legal system itself. It's a remarkable story of how we cannot control what happens to us, but we can choose to decide how it will shape us, finding a purpose for our pain and creating our own hope in the darkest hours.

Rank #3: Ep. 4 - Dead Meat Soon

Podcast cover
Read more

On June 8th, 1989 the body of Cindy James was discovered in Richmond, BC. She was laying on her side, with her ankles and wrists fastened behind her & had a nylon stocking tied tightly around her neck. The cause of death however, would be overdose. Almost immediately, news networks would be sharing details of a nearly decade-long horror story of a woman, hunted down and scared for her life. By the time Cindy James went missing, she had reported over 100 incidents of stalking, harassment and assaults from an unknown assailant. But by July 12th the RCMP would officially rule out any foul play leaving the public to wonder how could a person do something to themselves like that and why would they?

The investigation of her death would lead to one the longest and most expensive inquests in British Columbia's history. It would be ruled inconclusive, with her family believing she was killed and the police believing it was an elaborately staged suicide. While the cause of her death would remain inconclusive, one thing remained certain: nobody agreed that ruling made any sense. And we're still left wondering, to this day: If it was impossible that she did this to herself, then who murdered Cindy James?

Rank #4: Ep. 3 - Embers and Ashes: Part II

Podcast cover
Read more

On June 8th, 2017 Randy Stair (also known as Andrew Blaze) would arrive for night shift at The Weis Market and kill 3 co-workers before committing suicide. The headlines about the shooting would die down quickly, in much less time than had even been spent on it's planning, drowned out by similar back to back events. Each time we seem to be left in the same place, asking the same questions; finding it nearly impossible to heal through the aftermath when it's almost never-ending. Where does Tunkhannock, and we go from here?

On June 8th, 2017 Randy Stair (also known as Andrew Blaze) would arrive for night shift at The Weis Market and kill 3 co-workers before committing suicide. Within hours, police would search Randy's room and find the remnants of a trail, leading to one of the biggest digital footprints of massacre planning left behind. Not only would the small borough of Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania be shaken forever but the rest of the nation would be left shocked, wondering: how could it have been possible that nobody saw this coming?

Ryan Poston, a young attorney at law from Fort Mitchell, Kentucky, is shot to death by his girlfriend, Shayna Hubers, in October 2012. Two people, one gun, and left in the aftermath: only one story. Like other similar cases, the final question always begging to be answered is: was it self-defense or cold-blooded murder?

Podcast cover

A long overdue hello, to you, dear listener. Thank you for sticking with me, and being so patient. The Dark Divide is back, and I've decided to release some smaller episodes in between larger ones that demand more time and research, so you can still get your fix. I hope you enjoy this mini-sode about an innocent Craigslist post that Michelle Wilkins responded to in 2015 for free maternity clothes. A simple task that led to one of the most heinous and savage acts to ever happen in Longmont, Colorado and also, the rest of the country.
