Episode 144: On the evening of December 27, 2005, in my home province of Nova Scotia, Jason McCrae, husband of a beloved educator, artist, sister and mother named Paula Anne Gallant, reported her missing. Paula failed to return to her home in Timberlea after a shopping trip to nearby Halifax. The next day, Paula’s body was found locked in the trunk of her car in the parking lot of the school where she taught the third grade. The cause of Paula’s death was not immediately evident, nor was it apparent how she had come to be in the trunk of her vehicle.

Episode 143: On the island paradise Bermuda in the early morning hours of July 3, 1996, a group of friends were riding in a car headed toward Ferry Reach Park, on the northeastern edge of the island. The vehicle’s occupants were startled when the car’s headlights illuminated a form lying in the middle of the dark and isolated road. They pulled the car over and got out to investigate. The group presumed at first it was an injured dog, but as they approached, they realized that this was a nearly naked and bloodied teenage girl. She was seventeen-year-old, Rebecca Middleton from Belleville, Ontario. Although alive when the strangers found her, Rebecca died from her injuries before authorities could get to her. Rebecca’s story and aftermath have become the basis for one of the darkest moments in Bermuda’s history.

Episode 141 – In late June 1993, police were called to a possible stabbing at a residence in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. In one of the bedrooms, Kenneth John Ladubec, 46, lay dead in a massive pool of blood. His killer was Jacob Leroy Andrew Green, 16, the son of Kenneth’s live-in girlfriend. Green was tried as a young offender and found guilty of manslaughter.

After Jake’s release, all seemed relatively okay. Underneath his cool exterior simmered a rage that would surface again in 1999 when, after a breakup, Jake stabbed his ex-girlfriend, Lesli Yaremko and her parents, Sharon and Terry.

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.
