They found a man lying outside of a home.  Gatleak Thor Metkurjock, 20, was breathing but unconscious. His face was swollen, he had blood by his nose and mouth, and he had hypothermia. Metkurjock was rushed to hospital by ambulance but died the next day. An autopsy showed he died from blunt force trauma. Meanwhile, across town, the events of that night would change the life of another young man forever. Learn the shocking tragedies and obstacles that led up to this fateful night — and how those events have shaped the boy with the heart of a lion.

    'Hunted by evil' Part 3 — Inside the jury

    30:19

    It’s arguably one of the highest profile multiple murder cases in Canadian history. Douglas Garland was convicted of the first-degree murder of five-year-old Nathan O’Brien and his grandparents Alvin and Kathy Liknes. For nearly five weeks, jurors were shown graphic forensic evidence gathered from the Liknes home and the farm where Garland lived with his parents. Now, for the first time, two of the 12 jurors who decided Garland’s fate, are speaking out about the ongoing impact of hearing such a disturbing case. For these jurors, it’s been an ongoing process to cope with the trauma that’s been passed on to them and they deal with sudden and unexpected triggers. “I'm not going to say I haven't shed a few tears just randomly,” one said in the exclusive interview. Join Global News senior crime reporter Nancy Hixt as she shares their compelling conversations in the conclusion of this three-part special Crime Beat podcast series, ‘Hunted by Evil.’ Contact: Twitter: @nancyhixt Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NancyHixtCrimeBeat/ Email: [email protected] See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    Hunted By Evil Part 2: The Monstrous Acts of Douglas Garland | 2

    1:02:41

    On July 4, 2014, four days into an Amber Alert, a suspect was arrested in connection with the disappearance of Nathan O’Brien and his grandparents Alvin and Kathy Liknes. An RCMP emergency response team searched the farm where Douglas Garland lived with his parents. They didn’t find Nathan, Alvin and Kathy. At that time, there wasn’t enough evidence to charge Garland with kidnapping. Instead, he was arrested on unrelated fraud charges. In the meantime, investigators got a warrant and began an exhaustive search of the expansive 40-acre Garland property — one that would become the biggest in Calgary police history. A few days later, he was released on bail with the condition he would not return to his parents' farm as the search continued. The 54-year-old was under constant surveillance. Two days later, officers watched as he drove out to his parents' property. In Part Two of the Crime Beat series "Hunted by Evil," you’ll hear from the rookie officer who tracked Garland in the darkness and the forensic investigators who scoured the Garland property for months. More than 1,400 exhibits were seized — including the DNA of all three victims. Follow along as Global News senior crime reporter Nancy Hixt explains how a petty grudge grew into a murderous plot and shares the disturbing evidence that police uncovered. -- If you enjoy Crime Beat, please take a minute to rate it on Apple Podcasts or Google Podcasts, tell us what you think and share the show with your friends.

    Introducing... China Rising

    34:42

    Introducing Episode 1 of China Rising - Hostage Diplomacy On the first episode of China Rising, we examine  the Chinese government's practice of detaining political prisoners, by hearing directly from Canadians who've become caught in the crossfire. Christian aid workers Julia and Kevin Garratt lived in China for 30 years before their arrest in 2014, when they were suddenly cast as pawns in a geopolitical chess match. The Garratts’ traumatic experience is eerily similar to the case of the 'Two Michaels,' Canadians Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig, detained in China since December 2018. Using their stories and others as a guide, we'll investigate how Western countries, including Canada, should respond to China's so-called 'Hostage Diplomacy.'

    Scarred but not broken - part one |15

    34:16

    On a cool rainy day in the summer of 1999, an old Chevy van was seen speeding on a highway from the backcountry eastbound towards Rocky Mountain House, Alta. There was a large piece of canvas attached to the bumper and it dragged behind the van. A short time later, the vehicle pulled into the ambulance bay at the Rocky Mountain House hospital. A man went in and identified himself as Brian Hogg. He was covered in blood and had lacerations to both of his wrists. Hogg asked the doctor to check on his son, who was still in the van. A little boy was found seated in the front passenger seat. He had blood on his neck, face, chest, arms and legs. His throat was cut, but he was responsive. The seven-year-old was rushed into the emergency room. But he wasn’t the only child inside the van. There was a little girl, unresponsive, on top of some sleeping bags. The doctor who made the horrific discovery noted the two-year-old was cold to the touch. She had no vital signs when was rushed into the emergency room and was later pronounced deceased by the local medical examiner. The case was now considered a homicide. In part one of this two-part series of Crime Beat, Global News crime reporter Nancy Hixt shares how this senseless crime continues to impact the officers who investigated the case.
