Additional content warning: This case is about the death of a baby, and there is mention of domestic violence and animal abuse. Please take care when listening.

After the disappearance of a baby in Windsor in 1990, lurid headlines on both sides of the Detroit River quickly turned the baby’s teen parents into sordid celebrities.

The intention of this episode is to take a look back at a shocking crime sensationalized through headlines, how it captured public attention and inspired vigilante justice. It also reveals the stark differences between Canadian and American news coverage that played a pivotal role in the way this crime—and the stories about this crime—played out.
