The Girls Are Gone

00:0000:00

On April 19, 2013 during a custody dispute with her ex-husband Sandra Grazzini-Rucki abducted her own daughters.  944 days later they were located on November 18, 2015. living on a ranch in Northern Minnesota.  Four separate people ended up receiving criminal charges in the case, including the girls mother.

In September 2018, Michael Brodkorb and Allison Mann announced they would be releasing the book titled  “The Girls Are Gone”. During the past two years the authors (a paralegal for the fathers attorney, and a writer for a Minnesota news centre that was reporting on the case during trial.)  have uncovered new details about the disappearance of Samantha and Gianna Rucki and the adults that worked together to hide the sisters and the truth from everyone. The conducted many interviews to gather the complete story - including members of the Rucki family, and that included the daughters Samantha and Gianna.  The book was released October 23rd for all of us to dig right in.  I hope you will enjoy our discussion.

Chapter 5 Part The murder of Candace Derksen and the case of Mark Edward Grant

00:0000:00

Candace Derksen disappeared on Nov. 30, 1984. Her abduction shocked Winnipeg. 

Volunteer searchers came out en masse to look for a girl with pale freckles and brown hair. After nearly seven weeks, the search ended on Jan. 17, 1985, with a grim discovery. The girl's frozen body was found tied up inside a machine shed just 500 metres from her home. 

Candace's wrists and ankles were bound with twine. Her killer left her to die of hypothermia and exposure.
Years later no one has been successfully tried and convicted in her case.  It is widely believed her attacker was Mark Edward Grant.

00:0000:00

Kate of Ignorance Was Bliss talks with me about changing the name of the podcast.  We also discuss an exciting new project she is involved in, that I think you may enjoy.  We cover the anxiety of transition, and how change can be scary but so can staying the same.  I hope you enjoy this different style episode. Hopefully the changes will make more sense once you've listened.  Thank you again for not leaving me.

Ignorance Was Bliss, Wining About Crime With True Crime Finland.

00:0000:00

Here is a treat for you.  I’m sure you all remember Kate, from Ignorance was Bliss.  She was the one that made sense of all of the brain stuff we talked about in the Barbara Stoppel case...well, Kate got me and our friend Minna from True Crime Finland Podcast together to talk about a true crime case.  It was a terrific time, and the case is one that falls into the history books here in Canada, and has a Finland connection. These ladies are so interesting and engaged - you can’t help but enjoy them…we discussed the case of Hugh Willliam Aexander Newell.

 

Kate is famous on IGNORANCE WAS BLISS

Minna is famous on TRUE CRIME FINLAND

Chapter 17 - “Sometimes when we touch.” Jian Ghomeshi.

00:0000:00

Jian Ghomeshi is a Canadian musician, writer, and former CBC radio broadcaster.  Part of the horizon of the arts in Canada for over thirty years.  A celebrated Juno nominee, and a Gemini winner for his radio broadcast "Q - Wtih Jian Ghomeshi."  Anyone who is anyone sat across from Jian to be interviewed and many, even performed live in his studio.  Jian is embroiled in the biggest sexual assault trail in the history of Canadian broadcasting.  In front of the mic he is kind, charismatic and very charming, behind closed doors he is a man struggling with demons of never belonging, and never being good enough.  A private mans very personal and sexual identity is waved through the media by multiple women who have remained silent for so long.  The real question is twofold , how did so many people know and not act on the insights they had?  How did Canada's public broadcaster not respond to issues that were brought to them by women who claimed it was "hell" working in the "Q" offices?

Chapter 16 - It’s no one’s fault, but everyone is to blame.

00:0000:00

Here is a case out of the Canadian Maritime Province of New Brunswick. Two brothers, Connor and Noah spent the day with a close family friend at his father's farm. That evening they slept overnight with his son at an apartment just in front of their family home. For their mother, step father, and even the family friend there was no reason to worry for their safety....or, was there? This case has a special focus on how our decisions can determine our fate, and when many people make poor decisions together - it can be a fatal disaster.

Guido Amsel, 51, is on trial for attempted murder and explosives-related charges after three bombs were mailed within the city of Winnipeg in July 2015, following an explosion at his ex-wife’s home in 2013 after a lengthy and brutal divorce.
He pleaded not guilty to all of the charges, and provincial court Judge Tracey Lord is hearing the Crown’s case against him, which was scheduled to include testimony from two lawyers who stopped working for Amsel in 2014.

Chapter 10 - The Trial of Laura Babcock

00:0000:00

Laura Babcock

The murder case of a young woman whose body has not been found hinges upon a "large and complex" body of circumstantial evidence.  Laura Babcock, a troubled 23-year-old Toronto woman, vanished five years ago.

Two men — Dellen Millard and Mark Smich — are accused of killing Babcock in July 2012 and burning her body in an animal incinerator.
