209: MMIW: The Murder of Daleen Kay Bosse

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.
