Episode 078 – In May of 2013 police in New Jersey found respected, 73-year-old Lawyer, Joseph Galfy Jr. dead in the bedroom his home wearing only socks and underwear. Investigators were quickly onto a suspect who turned out to be a well known drifter.

Three months before, the suspect, 24-year-old, Canadian born Caleb Lawrence McGillvary, had become a internet celebrity, known as Kai the Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker. He was interviewed by Jessob Reisbeck for Fox News in Fresno California. In the interview Caleb, using another name, described coming to the aid of people who were being attacked by a large man who he’d been riding with only moments before. Using a hatchet from his backpack, Caleb had cleaved the man’s skull allowing bystanders and later police to subdue him.

McGillvary was apprehended days later, but only tried for the murder in May of 2019, 6 years later. Although convicted, he maintains his innocence claiming he killed Galfy in self-defence.

Episode 077 – In 2004, after a year long chase across multiple U.S. States an unknown burglar, who’d proven quite a match fro even the best trackers, was cornered in Death Valley, near the ghost town of Ballarat, California. The chase first started there giving the perpetrator, and thorn in law enforcement’s side, his name: The Ballarat Bandit. Rather than face prison, when capture was imminent, the man took his own life. After nearly another two years the man was finally identified as 50-year-old George Robert Johnston, a Canadian, from Prince Edward Island. He was a beloved husband and father of four beautiful daughters. His true motives for the chase through the desert died with him. (Photo is Public Domain)

Episode 076 – The beautiful city of Vancouver has a surprisingly dark history of rioting over the years. Some have been politically and racially motivated, others have been music or sport related. The two we tackle in this episode are a couple of the most recent and most memorable. The NHL’s Vancouver Canucks made the Stanley Cup finals twice in a span of 17 years. After both series, coming on the heels of game 7 losses, bad apples tore up our fair city.
