Episode 139: On September 27, 2017, when Dianna Mah-Jones failed to show up for her shift without calling in sick, her co-workers were concerned. Neither Dianna nor her husband, Richard Jones, was answering the phone. One of Dianna’s colleagues went to the couple’s home in Vancouver’s Marpole neighbourhood and discovered what appeared to be a bloody crime scene. Dianna and Richard lay dead inside the house, brutally murdered.

After a complex and intense investigation police had their suspect. He was an odd man, with an odder name and an ever more odd explanation for what he had done.
