Episode 209: Daleen Kay Bosse, was a 26-year-old, wife and mother of Cree heritage and member of the Onion Lake First Nation in Saskatchewan near Saskatoon. On May 18, 2004, after a night out with friends Daleen did not return home. Her family grew worried. When she still hadn’t come home the next day Jeremiah, Daleen’s husband, contacted police, who, initially did not respond with much enthusiasm, telling Jeremiah and Daleen’s concerned parents to wait; that she would probably either come home or check in soon. Daleen’s family organized searches themselves and two weeks later Daleen’s car was found abandoned, but there was no sign of the missing woman. It would be more than four years later that Daleen’s family would find out what had happened to their missing loved one. Daleen had been murdered by a man named Douglas Richard Hales, who, during a Mr. Big sting, had admitted to killing the woman and the led police to Daleen’s charred remains.

Episode 208: On Feb 4, 1880, just past midnight 5 members of the Donnelly family (A mother and father, two sons, and a niece) we brutally murdered by a mob in their homes just outside of Lucan, Ontario, in Biddolph township. A crime that happened 142 years ago this month, but it is one that had its roots in the distant past, and that has echoed into the future in Canada right up to today. The family and their story became legendary, and often shocks people into the realization of how dark, and unforgiving life in early Canada could be. Numerous books, songs, tv shows, plays, and films have been made about the murders. There is even a Craft Beer brand in Ontario called The Black Donnelly’s Brewing Company, will illustrations of the family on their bottles. If you grew up in Ontario the massacre was actually part of the school curriculum. This is a case of victim blaming on a huge scale. Myths and legends sprung up about the family — perhaps somewhat to appease the guilty conscience of society. Even up to the early 1980’s if you went to Lucan people would say ‘we don’t talk about the Donnellys’

Episode 207: After World War II, Canada’s economy rose. Work was much easier to come by than during the depression. Even though he’d been able to secure decent employment, family man and world war veteran with movie star good looks, Edwin Alonzo Boyd, was bored. He’d had his share of trouble already and was feeling the itch again. In the fall of 1949, he robbed his first bank. This crime kicked off events that would lead to one of the most infamous Canadian criminal gangs of the era. Over just a few years, The Boyd Gang, named for their charismatic de facto leader, Edwin, robbed numerous banks broke out of one of Canada’s toughest prisons, not once but twice. To some, they were folk heroes. However, public sentiment turned firmly against them after members of the gang, Steve Suchan and Lennie Jackson, murdered Toronto Police Department Sergeant of Detectives Edmund “Eddie” Tong and severely wounded his partner Roy Perry.

Episode 206: Starting on the evening of June 29 and going into the early morning of June 30, 2002, Lisa Marie Young, a 21-year-old indigenous woman, was celebrating with friends in her hometown, Nanaimo, B.C. It was not only Canada Day long weekend, but also her friend Dallas’s birthday. The group went to several nightclubs and then attended a pair of house parties outside the city. Lisa left the party with a man the group had met just that evening. There were several frantic texts from Lisa shortly after her departure indicating she was afraid. Lisa Marie Young has not been heard from since. The man she was seen with while leaving the party was later identified as a local 27-year-old man named Christopher William Adair. Adair now refuses to speak to police and has left the country. Nanaimo RCMP presume Lisa has been murdered and her remains have never been found. In the days before the recording of this podcast, an anonymous donor contacted advocates for Lisa offering $50,000 reward to locate her remains. It’s time to bring Lisa home. Someone knows where she is. Maybe you can help.

When she went missing, Lisa Marie Young was 21 years old. She was 5’4” (163 cm) tall and weighed 115 pounds (52 kg). She had long dark brown hair, brown eyes. Lisa has a tattoo of a band of flowers with a heart in the middle that circles her upper right arm. She was wearing a black skirt, black top, black high boots and a silver hoop necklace.

If you have any tips or information regarding Lisa Marie Young’s disappearance, please call RCMP Corporal Markus Muntener directly at 250-754-2345
