In today’s Big Story podcast, what did the Toronto Police know? When did they know it? Crime reporter Wendy Gillis accessed court documents, and conducted extensive interviews with detectives to put together the story of an infamous investigation from the perspective of the people chasing a serial killer.
Police faced extensive criticism over the McArthur investigation. Both for how long it took them to get serious about the men going missing in Toronto’s gay village, and for insisting a month before McArthur was caught that “the evidence today tells us that there is not a serial killer.” Today, you’ll hear how soon they realized they were wrong, and what happened next.
