Episode 015: Gilbert Paul Jordan, a.k.a. the Boozing Barber, loved to drink and carouse with women. Between 1965 and 1987 nine women died of acute alcohol poisoning while in his company, while four others came close. Although police knew about Jordan’s involvement in theier deaths. his prey were the down on their luck indigenous women from Vancouver’s downtown East Side. Cops tended believed him when he told them he found them that way, even though he was a violent and sadistic career criminal. Women like that die every day down town.

010 – Mike Met a Monster in 1981

Episode 010 has been a tough one for us to get out. This is Mike’s personal story of what happened to him one summer night in 1981 and how one event effected him to this day. He hopes that in the telling of his story, others will feel safe enough to share their own and unburden themseleves of a secret. Thanks to Jami from the MURDERISH podcast for this week’s intro. Jami’s recent episode, A Stranger in my Bedroom, helped us get over the hump to telling this story.

As well we wish to thank Jim Clemente, former prosecutor, FBI profiler and consultant on the TV show Criminal Minds as well as his podcasts, Best Case, Worst Case and Real Crime Profile, for bravely sharing his own story of sexual assault at the hands of a grown up when he was a boy.

If you or anyone you know has been the victim of a sexual assault, please seek help, call the police, talk to your doctor, trusted family members and friends.

Organizations like 1in6 are there to help male vitims of sexual assault and sexual abuse. You are not alone.
