Catherine Campbell; NOVA SCOTIA

August 9, 2022

This week on Podcast By Proxy, we discuss the case of off duty Nova Scotia police officer Catherine Campbell.  Catherine was reported missing on September 14, 2015 by her co-worker and this quickly led the Halifax Police Department to 27 year old Christopher Garnier.  The police immediately ramped up their investigation with video surveillance of Christopher and ultimately the tragic discovery of Catherine.

Byron Carr; PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND

July 26, 2022

On the morning of Saturday November 12, 1988, 36-year-old Byron Carr was found dead by his family in the bedroom of his home at 24 Lapthorne Ave in Charlottetown, PEI.  Byron’s family had gone looking for him as they were worried when he didn’t show up for a family function. They had decided to first pop by his house and when they arrived, they found him strangled and stabbed to death laying on his bedroom floor.  Upon further investigation the police also found the words “I will kill again” written on the wall in pen and his wallet had been stolen. Byron’s murder is PEI’s only unsolved murder to date.

Chelsea Poorman; BRITISH COLUMBIA

Chelsea Poorman; BRITISH COLUMBIA

June 14, 2022

On Friday May 6, 2022, Vancouver Police announced that they had discovered the remains of a 24 year old Cree woman Chelsea Poorman who disappeared from Downtown Vancouver, British Columbia over a year and a half ago. Chelsea’s skeletal remains were found on the property of a vacant mansion in one of the cities most wealthy neighborhoods. At a press conference, police stated that while they believed her body had been there since the night she disappeared and due to their skeletal state cause of death could not be determined, they also had no reason to believe that her death was the result of anything suspicious.  They went on to clarify this statement saying the totality of their evidence does not lead to them believing anyone else is involved in the death of Chelsea. This led her family and the rest of the public to ask the question – then what happened to Chelsea Poorman?  How did she end up in the backyard of a vacant mansion in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in Vancouver, and how did her body go unnoticed for almost 19 months?

 

Mentioned at the top of this week episode.
