    S4 E44 Three Ghost Stories and a Murder

    S4 E44 Three Ghost Stories and a Murder

    In this last episode of Season 4, I'm delighted to be joined by four local storytellers. We'll hear about the murder of iconic architect Francis Rattenbury, visit a haunted firehall, a spooky house in New Westminster from the 1860s, and a character house in East Vancouver that's home to three ghosts: a man, a little girl and a charcoal grey cat.

    S4 E43 Where is Mike Smith?

    S4 E43 Where is Mike Smith?

    Michael Smith, 17 is RCMP case #2014003272 and one of 233 missing kids on the Canada’s Missing website. Mike was last seen on December 30, 1967 when he left his North Vancouver home after a fight with his family when he was caught with some weed. If Mike is alive, he’d be 73 years old, and may have no idea that his family has searched for him for over four decades.
    The second part of the episode is about Lucy Johnson, a 25-year old mother of two. Lucy went missing from her home in 1961. For over 50 years she was listed as “missing, foul play suspected” by the Surrey RCMP. And, then in 2013, Lucy's story got an ending.

    S4 E42 The Cloverdale Murder of Nancy Johnsen

    S4 E42 The Cloverdale Murder of Nancy Johnsen

    On November 6, 1967, sometime before 6:00 pm, seven-year-old Nancy Johnsen went missing from her Cloverdale BC farmhouse. Nancy, one of ten children ranging in age from six months to 16 years, was found on the property the next morning. She had been strangled. No one reported seeing a stranger around the house that night and Nancy was not known to wander outside alone in the dark. The case went cold. A few years after the Johnsens moved to nearby Aldergrove, their neighbour, 15-year-old Theresa Hildebrandt disappeared. Her remains would not be found for another four years.
    This episode is based on original research and interviews from a chapter in my book Cold Case Vancouver: the city's most baffling unsolved murders

    S4 E41 The Alley Murders

    S4 E41 The Alley Murders

    Between April 1988 and August 1990, a serial killer murdered six sex trade workers and dumped their bodies in the laneways of Vancouver. Officially, the murders are unsolved and two were added to the Vancouver Police Department’s cold case website just last year. But two retired detectives who worked on a joint RCMP/VPD task force called E-Alley, say they know who killed these women, and he died in 2007.

    Casey Rose Bohun, 3 disappeared from her North Delta, BC home on August 5, 1989. Dozens of volunteers searched for Casey but no trace of her was ever found. Police believe that she either wandered off and got lost, was killed by someone close to her, abducted by a stranger, or sold and living somewhere else with no memory of her real family.
    This episode is based on a story from Cold Case BC: the stories behind the province's most sensational murders and missing persons cases.

Eve is the best!

I’m a huge true crime podcast junkie, and I can say with 100% certainty, this podcast is my absolute favourite! Eve is so lovely, it feels like she’s a friend when I’m listening. She researches so well and has people related to the stories on…please never stop Eve!

Excellent

I like your podcast very much! The Canadian content is so good to have, thank you. Just a suggestion: could you spread out to the rest of Canada and cover cases throughout the country, instead of just Vancouver?

Great white ethiopian ,

Coke Case Canada……….but only in BC

it’s okay, but don’t call the podcast “cold case canada” when every story is from British Columbia.
