53 The Murder of Joseph Rosenthal
TORONTO, ON - A late-night business meeting in a 1912 hydro yard ends in a serious crime. The case inspired an unprecedented public outcry at a time when hanging was still routinely applied for the most serious of offences.
[Bonus content between episodes ] I had lots of questions after covering Russell Williams - so I had a conversation with Dr Lee Mellor - Canadian profiler, author, criminologist and serial killer expert. He's also the host of Murder Was The Case.
In typical Lee fashion, he doesn't hold back on any of his opinions. Definitely lots of food for thought.
Welcome back to a new season of Canadian True Crime!
In 2010, 27 year old Jessica Lloyd was reported missing from her home in Belleville, Ontario. She hadn't shown up for work, and the last time anybody heard from her was a late evening text message the night before.
A week after Jessica disappeared, the OPP called a man in for questioning. What he revealed to police over the next 10 hours would not only come to shock the nation, but many thousands of employees of the Canadian Forces to their core. The man sitting in front of police admitting to a string of escalating offences against women - some horrifically violent - was the LAST person they expected to apprehend.
* Correction notice: in the final paragraphs of this episode, a report from Statistics Canada was quoted. “….“Police-reported hate crime in Canada, 2017”, reports that from 2010 to 2017, there were 31 hate crimes targeting transgender or asexual people that were reported to police.” - Please note that the eng.htm">published report used incorrect terminology - the word asexual should actually be agender. Statistics Canada have been notified of this error and have promised to update their report.

The decision to place an elderly relative in care is often a difficult and emotional process. That's why it’s vital that long term care facilities offer families peace of mind and reassurance that their loved one is safe and well cared for.
This is a tale of where it all went terribly wrong.
