In a small town located less than an hour from Canada's largest military base, locals began talking about the so-called 'Tweed Creeper,' after a rash of break-ins where the only things stolen were women's undergarments. But those crimes would quickly escalate to assault and then to murder. But a set of tire tracks would point police to the person responsible, someone above suspicion. As reporter Morganne Campbell reports, it's a case that even more than a decade later, leaves many with unanswered questions.
It began more than ten years ago in a small town in Ontario. A series of breaks ins put residents on edge, particularly women, when they realized what was being taken - undergarments and sex toys. Then the crimes led to assault and murder. Was the person responsible hiding in plain sight…a monster in uniform? When police hone in on a key suspect he is brought in for questioning and a cat and mouse game between a seasoned officer and a suspected serial killer unfolds in the interview room. Morganne Campbell reports on what ultimately led to a shocking confession from the man who was leading a secret double life.
What started as a petty falling out between a group of high school friends led to the creation of two rival gangs. Over a decade the animosity between the FK's and FOB's gangs grew as did their illicit activity. Learn how police worked to end the deadly feud that left more than two dozen dead– and included innocent bystanders who were hit in the crossfire.
A dispute outside a Toronto tavern between a jealous boyfriend and several gang members ends in a hail of gunfire, in which a young woman new to the city is killed, and the missing gun turns up in an unrelated crime.
