This podcast was started in January of 2017, about the unsolved murder of my sister, Theresa Allore, who died on November 3, 1978. The project has grown to include unsolved murders of women in Quebec in the 1970s. Now the podcast is simply about justice issues and criminal investigative failures.
Solving for X - Francine Da Sylva / WKT7 #9
One of the most interesting things about Francine Da Sylva's murder on October 18, 1985, is that three days earlier, Frank Shoofey was gunned down, on October 15, 1985. And not only that, Shoofey's law office on the 5th floor of that apartment building on Rue Cherrrier is two blocks from the alley where Da Sylva was stabbed to death. Standing at the entrance to that alley on Saint Timothee, you can see the Shoofey building up the hill.
Solving for X - Diane Thibeault / WKT7 #8
I have some follow-up thoughts on the 1985 murder of Francine Da Sylva, but in order to get there, I need to revisit two other unsolved murders we've covered: the 1979 death of Nicole Gaudreault and the 1975 strangulation and incineration of Diane Thibeault. Solving for x involves bringing an unknown variable to one side, then seeing how other elements line up with that variable - that's what we're going to do here – move and reconsider some variables.

love love love
i adore the tone.
In depth and real
This is an amazing deep dive into cold cases and policing in Quebec from the perspective of a murder victim’s brother. It is very raw at times and much more realistic and heartbreaking then the typical surficial true crime format. I highly recommend it!
Merci , frightening truth
Great work John ,
I realize how lazy our police service was because of your findings and comments.
I hate to think that not much changed.
After listening to all of your work, I came to a simple conclusion: keep the ones I love and myself out of trouble! I apply that rule as much as possible.
Au final c’est une excellente leçon quand même!
