Episode 205: In this Away Game we are off to post World War One Germany where in the early 1920s, a brutal serial killer, Fritz Haarmann, killed at least 27 young men and boys. Many of his crimes, it appears, were committed to impress his lover, a man named Hans Grans. Although Haarmann admitted it was he who murdered and dismembered the victims, he claimed that ultimately, in a few cases, it was Grans who chose who was to die.

Episode 204: Between 1957 and 1964 in Montreal, Quebec, experiments were undertaken that compromised and invaded people’s minds, their agency to make decisions for themselves removed and their brains mucked about in, both physically and psychologically. These barbaric, Orwellian experiments often involved mind expanding drugs like LSD, sensory deprivation, shock treatments and periods of sleep induced for weeks at a time as well as other treatments that could easily be called torturous. They were sponsored by the most notorious branch of the United States government, the CIA, the Canadian government as well as other shadowy organizations with funding coming even from the Rockefellers. The goals behind the research, it seems were to develop brainwashed, zombie-like ‘recruits’ who would do the bidding of these groups without question or conscience getting in the way and to develop new methods of psychological torture to aid in enemy interrogation. All of it took place right here in Canada. The research was overseen by Dr. Donald Ewen Cameron, an eminent and well-respected psychiatrist at McGill University’s, Allan Memorial Institute with unwitting Canadian psychiatric patients used as Guinae pigs. The project was called MK-ULTRA.

Episode 203: On May 7, 1992, after the McDonald’s restaurant on Kings Road near Keltic Drive in Sydney River, Nova Scotia, closed for the night and the overnight crew was coming in and the evening crew was leaving. Three young men, armed with a shovel handle, knives and a .22 calibre pistol robbed the establishment. They beat, stabbed and shot 4 of the restaurant workers, killing three, Jimmy Fagan, 27, Donna Warren, 22, and Neil Burroughs Jr., 29, and critically wounding 20-year-old, Arlene MacNeil, who was permanently disabled both physically and mentally, requiring round the clock care until her death in 2018. The crime’s brutality brought unwelcome international media attention to the small town, especially when the truth came out. To almost everyone’s surprise, days after the murders, it quickly became evident that the brutal crime had been committed by three, fairly well-liked young men from the area. They’d robbed the place for its cash, making off with a tiny fraction of what they had assumed would be in the restaurant’s safe.

Episode 202: Mathew Charles Lamb was a troubled and disturbed youngster. He was born in Windsor, Ontario, unwanted, to a teenage mother and bounced from one relative’s home to another, never having close relationships with any of them. To him they were merely his keepers. The rules they laid out for him to follow were bothersome to him. Young Matt was incorrigible. He became violent early on, many of the other kids in his family and in the neighbourhood were terrified of him. After a number of run ins with local police and several violent incidents involving firearms, one including a shootout with police, Mathew Lamb was jailed  in the Kingston Pen for the first time — he was just 16. At 18 years old, only days after an early release, Mathew Charles Lamb, went on a shooting spree in Windsor, killing two strangers and wounding two more.

Episode 201: On October 14, 2007, after a gruelling 20-hour journey from Poland, Robert Dziekanski, arrived at the YVR airport’s international terminal in Richmond, B.C. Dziekanski, who spoke nor read any English, was unable to read the signs directing him to what he should do next or where he should go. The confused man spent ten hours in the airport wandering around the secure customs area. His mother was waiting for him with a friend only a few meters away in the public waiting area. Had the two been able to connect this story would have had a very different conclusion, but they did not. She left the airport, frustrated, hours before her son’s final moments.
