When Sheree Fertuck’s truck is found abandoned, suspicions grow around what happened to her. This CBC investigation uncovers a story of guns, violence, and loss -- and of the gravel pit that could still hold clues about her disappearance.
E12: Just between you and me
The Mr. Big illusion is lifted. Greg's so-called friends turn out to be cops. As details of the elaborate web of deception are revealed in court, we hear what Greg tells the crime boss. Our reporters learn more about Justice Danyliuk.
Greg's children testify against him in court. Police reveal what set the Mr. Big operation in motion, as observers consider whether the judge will accept the confession from it.
E10: The case against Greg
Prosecutors and police reveal their evidence against Greg, including blood DNA and cell phone data. They build a timeline of the day Sheree disappeared, but Greg tells a different version of what happened on December 7, 2015.
Live Event: Special announcement
With the trial set to begin in September, we're hosting a special live event. It's a chance to meet fellow fans of The Pit and to ask questions of the hosts and producers behind the podcast. Find out more at cbc.ca/thepit
E9: Six More Months
A last minute decision puts the trial on hold for another six months. Sheree's family is shocked, and Greg is still in jail. Why would Greg's lawyers want their client in jail longer, and why couldn't this case go ahead when others have? Meanwhile someone close to Sheree finally speaks up.
E8: The Trial
With the trial about to begin, Greg’s lawyer explains why he’s representing Greg even though he doesn’t trust or believe him. We explore which factors could decide the verdict. With Sheree still missing, her sisters ponder what they want from the trial.
This podcast is immersive - having grown up in rural Sasky it’s been fantastic to listen to the anthropological notes in this podcast and share a little slice of small town living with my partner, who grew up out east. Your commitment to giving Sheree a voice as this trial unfolds is admirable. I think this podcast does a good job providing details without being terribly biased. The investigative work here is through and commitment to this story is lovely.
Sounds Like Amateurs
It sounded like high school kids doing an interviewing project. I didn’t get very far. I hope it gets solved though.
Not CBC’s greatest podcast
Normally I love everything CBC puts out but this one does nothing for me. The host does not capture my attention at all, I love the accent but she’s no Kristy from CTC podcast. I’m almost done but don’t think I’ll finish it, I’ll google to find out details and outcome. It’s too bad because it could be a great story.
