Did I spell "thieves" right?! That's a tough word. This week are continuing our edition of Hometown Haunts CANADA! But it turns out not all Canadians are polite and it sure is a lot darker now that DJ is gone...
This time 'round we're covering Canadian true crime! This episode is full of disturbing topics and listener discretion is advised. Lauren is covering Canadian serial killer Wayne Clifford Boden whose fetish gave him the moniker "The Vampire Rapist."
Ashley is covering the Saskatoon freezing deaths which is a part of a bigger phenomenon in Canada known as "starlight tours" where police officers pick up indigenous people for minor crimes and drive them several miles out of town and leave them in the freezing cold temperatures, sometimes to die.
As I said before, this episode is particularly serious and we cover some pretty sensitive topics. Rape, murder, mutilation, the abuse of indigenous people and police brutality. It leads to a brief discussion about the meaning of ACAB and even the murder of George Floyd. If these are topics that upset you, or topics that you don't wish to hear about we suggest you skip this one!
