  • 209 - Kimberly—Part 2

    Part 2 of 2] The murder of 18-year-old Kimberly Proctor shocked her community and made national headlines. But as investigators soon discovered, there were many red flags and warning signs that weren’t taken seriously.


    Through this series, we utilize case files released by police as well as relevant studies, statistics and scholarly articles to examine a number of issues related to the dynamics of teenage relationships in the online era. Our goal is to highlight common manipulation tactics employed by abusive people, the pitfalls of navigating consent, boundaries and rejection, mental health, nature vs nurture and more. This series is closely related to our previous episode titled Cherish.


    Additional content warning: this series includes graphic and distressing details of a murder and sexual assault, and while not the focus of the case there is brief mention of sexual assault against a child and cruelty to animals. 


    Please respect the privacy of those involved in this case.


    This month, Canadian True Crime has donated in Kimberly’s memory to BC SPCA Wild Arc, the wildlife rescue organization she planned to start volunteering with.

  • 206 - Introducing: Pretendians

    Today we're pleased to share with you the first episode of Pretendians- a riveting new podcast series that looks at some of the most prominent and successful Indigenous artists, leaders and professors who all have something in common: they aren’t Indigenous.


    There are hundreds of cases of Indigenous identity fraud that we know about, and likely thousands that we do not.

    So why do these so-called “pretendians” do it? How do they pull it off? And what happens when they are exposed? 


    In each episode of Pretendians, co-hosts Robert Jago (Kwantlen First Nation and Nooksack Indian Tribe) and Angel Ellis (Muscogee (Creek) Nation) reveal unbelievable stories of audacious fraudsters and investigate the complex phenomenon of Indigenous identity theft.


    We hope you enjoy this episode, and we'll see you soon!

  • 205 - Bizarre Encounters

    They've been called bizarre by some, amusing by others, and downright terrifying by those involved... but one thing these cases all have in common is that they're all true. 

    In this episode, we unravel the facts and fallout from each case, proving that reality can indeed be stranger than fiction.


    This month, Canadian True Crime has donated to the Canadian Mental Health Association.
