082 – Domestic Horror – The Murder of Donna Jones (ON)

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.

  1. Amazing episode. The compassion it was narrated with was eclipsed only by the brave and raw admission of Mike’s own history of abusive behavior. Mike and Scott, you rock. Keep up the good work. Claire from Canberra, Australia.
