Canadian Horror Story Part 2 S01E15

June 17th, 2017

Part 2 of our in depth look at London, Ontario's Serial Killer problem.

We need to talk about London.
Ontario, that is. Between the years of 1959 and 1985 London Ontario saw the highest number of serial murders per capita in Canada, and possibly even in the (developed) world. So is there any truth to the rumours that London is the Serial Killer Capital of the World? Find out as Patee and Kim begin the lengthy process of uncovering what lead to 29 murders (most unsolved) and a lot of unanswered questions.

With files from "Murder City: The Untold Story of Canada's Serial Killer Capital".

Babes in Woodland S01E13

May 20th, 2017

In 1947 a Stanley Park Ranger came across the skeletel remains of two small persons conceled under a coat on the forest floor. After sleeping on it he decided to "call it in", ya know because there's nothing suspecious or out of the ordinary about that.
Follow Patee as she retells the tragic story and find out how infamous child killer Clifford Olsen may have been involved.

Miss Piggy & the Cambodian Cowboys S01E11

April 22nd, 2017

A few things come to mind when we hear of strikes in the news, very rarely is murder one of them. The Giant Mine Massacre is one of Canada's largest mass murders on the books. Let's take a look back at how one company's efforts to line their own pockets may have indirectly (or if you ask some, directly) caused the death of 9 men.

You Can’t Swing a Dead Cat Without Hitting a Pervert S01E08

March 11th, 2017

For 11 years a predator avoided capture. His crime? The assult and murder of a 6 year old Edmonton girl. But what that man did not know was that the man tasked with finding him was persistant and patient. He would sift through hundreds of suspects and thousands of clues to catch his man.

We’d Better Let Sleeping Gods Lie S01E07

February 25th, 2017

In the winter of 1941, God and the Devil came to the Belcher Islands; an isolated Inuit community on the south east corner of Hudson's Bay. 

Years later two visitors would knock on a door.

Tom Martin, an Anglican priest from Great Whale River, and John Sperry, Anglican Bishop of the Arctic, were making their rounds, offering eucharist services to shut-ins in the community. When they came to one mans door, Sperry went inside; discovered that man sleeping, and asked his companion if he thought they should wake the old man up for communion.

"Let's not," the priest decided. "We'd better let sleeping gods lie."
