112. Taken: The Murder of Tori Stafford


 On April 8, 2009, eight-year-old Tori Stafford disappeared while walking home from school in Woodstock Ontario.  CCTV captures her walking away from the school with her abductor.
News of her kidnapping spread across the nation and led to one of the largest searches in the Ontario Provincial Police history.
Although her brutal captors were arrested and charged 6 weeks after Tori was taken,
her broken body wouldn't be found for 103 days.

Join Cam and Jen as we discuss Taken: The Murder of Tori Stafford on this episode of Our True Crime Podcast.

111. Binding Love: Brittany Kilgore

 A 9-1-1 call comes in from a woman who is speaking in a muffled voice barely understandable. The operator is able to understand that someone is hurt at a hotel in the town of Fallbrook which is located in the northern part of San Diego county. After the operator calms the caller down, he is able to get an address, and police are dispatched to the location. When officers arrive and knock on the door, they can hear noises coming from inside the room but are unable to make out just what is making the noise. The manager uses his key to get officers inside. Inside they find a woman on the ground and blood everywhere. The woman barely has clothes on but there are obvious signs of injury. As officers look around the room, they notice a spiked collar near her body. In the bathroom, there is an array of knives and scalpels. They also notice a letter that informs them of yet another body. What officers are about to discover is a twisted, dark tale that seems like the plot of a bad mystery novel.

110. The Pig Farmer: Robert Pickton

 Before you listen to this particular episode, I wanted to mention that the perpetrator in the case targeted sex workers many of whom were indigenous women struggling with addiction and/or mental health issues. According to www.statista.com, in 2018, the rate of homicide victims among women in Canada was more than six times higher for the indigenous population. Often, victims of violent crimes, Indigenous people are twice as likely to suffer a physical assault, and three times as likely to become victims of robbery and sexual assault compared to their non-indigenous counterparts.  If you would like to find out more about Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, please visit.amnesty.ca or kairoscandada.org.
Robert William Pickton was a Canadian farmer who, along with his brother, would run the farming business after his parents passed away. The men had some success with the farming but Robert's greatest legacy had nothing to do with farming. This is a grotesque story about a man who would ultimately be responsible for a series of missing women and the horror they must have endured.

109. Honor Thy Father or Die: Eddie Sexton

 Eddie Sexton was an ordained minister so all those in town knew him and he was the go-to guy who could marry you and fast with little fuss. Eddie and his wife, Estella May had 12 children in all, seven boys and five girls. From the outside, this large church-going family seemed to be an ideal family but we all know looks can be deceiving and in this case, twisted and deadly. This is a story about a father who ruled with an iron fist by instilling fear, among other things, to get exactly what he wanted. After all, he always got what he wanted because if he didn't there would be hell to pay.

 On August 20th, 1979  civil lawyer Wallace Schwartz gets a phone call at 2:12 AM When he answers he hears his friend, 38-year-old Albert Fentress, in a low emotionless tone, say he is going to kill himself because he did something awful, something unthinkable. The story that Albert would tell his friend Wallace would be a tale of cannibalization, mutilation, and murder involving a teenager. The man who committed this heinous crime would become the darling of prison officials but the question remains: Did Albert lose touch with reality that summer afternoon or did Albert know exactly what he did and how to get away with it?

107. The Pretender: Kenny Wayne Lockwood

We are venturing to the college town of College Station, Texas home of Texas A&M.
They like simple things like studying, partying and football. They also like getting to meet new people who share similar interests, especially if that interest is Aggie Football.
Kerry Kujawa is a 20-year-old engineering major at the university and just like a lot of other students, he has a 21-year-old girlfriend name, Kelly McCauley. They were just like any other college student couple: cute, carefree, and working hard to get grades and graduate while having a little fun in between. They were, however, unlike most couples in one aspect: the two had never actually met. They haven’t even talked on the phone.  They had only communicated in the chat room. Kerry had asked over and over to meet up with Kelly but the timing just didn’t seem to work out. It seems Kelly was not being completely honest with Kerry. What could have been a deceitful lie turned into murder.

12 Nightmares Before Christmas Day 12 The St Louis Video Strangler: Maury Travis

 Well, it the very final episode of 2020 and day 12 of our Nightmare Before Christmas series. So far we have traveled back in time and to other countries, like the UK, Australia, and Japan.  In this last episode, we are going into our own backyard.  

A St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter opens an anonymous letter sent to him from someone praising him for a recent story he wrote about a murdered sex worker. However, this was not the normal fan mail as it included a map with an ‘X’ pointing to where the next dead sex worker would be found dead. Authorities go to the site in West Alton unsure of what they would find. Sadly, ‘X’ did mark the spot but this was just the beginning of a sadistic serial killer who wouldn’t stop until he made a mistake on his home computer.
