The Odyssey

A compilation of all news media links following the tragic odyssey. From the initial disappearance on July 3, 2010 through the search, the Vader man-hunt, arrest, prosecution and conviction. And the sentencing, post-sentencing, incarceration, appeal and parole phases.

The local newspaper, the St Albert Gazette has reported on the entire ordeal with excellent and comprehensive coverage. The court reporter (Doug Neuman) attended every day of the trial in 2016.

This table includes links to the hundreds of media articles about the odyssey.
