Rank #1: Part 1 - Murder Most Pointless - Lynn Duggan & Patti Ducharme (BC)

Podcast cover
Read more

Episode 093 - Part 1 of 2: On the evening of June 17, 1993, after a day of worry, Cheryl Duggan, went to her 34-year-old twin sister Lynn's apartment in North Vancouver, BC. Cheryl soon discovered a grisly crime scene, and Lynn Duggan was never again seen alive again. The prime suspect, an ex-VPD officer, named Brock Graham who Lynn had dated only 3 times, was the main suspect  from day one in the minds of the Duggan. Eventually the police came to agree, but Graham was not talking. In 1996, before the Duggan family could find justice for Lynn, Brock Graham, would kill again. This time in Campbell River, BC, where a mother of four named Patti Ducharme, who happened to be Brock's live in girlfriend was found brutally murdered in her home in much the same way authorities believed Lynn Duggan had been.

Rank #3: Happy Face Killer - Part 1 - History & Taunja Bennett’s Murder (BC)

Podcast cover
Read more

Episode 027: Keith Hunter Jesperson is one of Canada's most notorious exports to the United States. Born in Chilliwack British Columbia, Jesperson and his family emigrated to the US when he was a pre-teen. Early on he showed signs that have become signposts of the budding psychopath, cruelty to animals and a love of setting fires. Keith's first kill was Taunja Bennett, 23, of Portland, Oregon. Another couple was convicted for the crime, but Jesperson's ego wouldn't let someone else take all the credit for his hard work, leading him to leave the first Happy Face note in a truck stop bathroom admitting to the crime. This episode covers his early life, first murder and another attempted murder very soon after.

Police responded finding Jennifer's mother Bich Ha Pan, dead of multiple gunshot wounds. Jennifer's father had escaped the house and was bleeding from wounds of his own.

Podcast cover

Episode 043 - After over 6 years of apparent harassment and a number of, what appeared to be violent assaults, Cindy James, a 44-year old nurse, went missing in May of 1989. On June 8, 1989, two weeks later, Cindy's family's greatest fears were realized. She was found dead near an abandoned home in Richmond B.C., a suburb of Vancouver. She appeared to have been drugged and strangled, with her hands and feet tied behind her back. A medical inquest into the cause of Cindy's death was inconclusive, leaving this one of the most talked about unsolved cases in Canadian history.

Episode 057 - Starting in November of 1980 children between the ages of 9 and 18 years old began to go missing in Surrey, Burnaby and Coquitlam. A few were found sexually assaulted and brutally murdered, others were written off as runaways, some think due to systemic classism within local police departments. No real connections were made in cases until 7 kids were gone by late July of 1981, almost 9 months later. Police began to look at one suspect intensely, a man named Clifford Robert Olson Jr. But they didn't have enough hard evidence to arrest him and he was not done killing.

We will cover his next 4 murders, eventual capture and aftermath in next week's episode.

Episode 082 - On the morning of December 6, 2009, Ottawa paramedics and police responded to what sounded like a frantic 911 call placed by a man at a residence in the Bayshore area. The man was screaming that his wife was not breathing. Upon arriving they found the owner of the home, 33-year-old Donna Jones, deceased on a makeshift mattress on the basement floor. Donna's injuries and her time of death did not match the story that her husband Mark Peter Hutt was telling. Investigators would uncover a brutal history of abuse and torture ultimately leading to a heinous murder.

Episode 051 - After a long stint of playing at home in Canada, this week we take you to Plainfield, Wisconsin where in the late 1950's the entire town was shocked to find there was a depraved monster in their midst. Small in stature, shy, but somewhat odd, Ed Gein was the last person townsfolk would peg as a murderer, grave robber and necrophile. Gein's horrific crimes went on to inspire writers to create some of the most memorable Hollywood villians of all time, namely Norman Bates in Psycho, Leatherface of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs and more.

episode 085 - The day before Valentines Day in 2008, James Shannon, a nurse from Port Alberni, BC, met up with another man he'd met on the web site, Plenty of Fish. Although James was looking for love, the man he brought into his home brought something much more sinister. Days later, after not showing up for multiple shifts at work, James Shannon was found brutally murdered in his home. The man who committed the act, Kim Winslow Rothgordt, was claiming he'd been raped and was too intoxicated at the time to know what happened. The truth was nowhere near his claims.

On the night of February 6, 2000 nearly the entire population of the tiny town of Fleur de Lys was out looking for 13-year-old Samantha Walsh. She'd gone missing on a three minute walk between her grandmother's house and her own home in weather that was -25 °C. As the weeks wore on with no verified signs of Samantha suspicions fell on a local 16-year-old boy dividing the small community. Many did not believe that one of their own could hurt a child.

Episode 064 - In April of 1992 Ian and Nancy Blackburn did not show for a family get together near their recreational property in Caledon, Ontario. The couple were found murdered and stuffed into the trunk of Nancy's car outside their home in Toronto. The number one suspect, had allegedly been breaking into properties in the Caledon area throughout the winter and his aberrant behaviour had been escalating toward the dangerous and bizarre.
