EP. #54: Cian McLaughlin - Grand Teton National Park - Wyoming

June 8th 2021- A Jackson Wyoming resident, bartender, and local snowboard instructor set out for a solo hike in Grand Teton National Park with limited gear on a moderate 8-mile trail.  Witnesses reported seeing him around mid-afternoon. This is the last time he would be seen. Join us this week as we investigate the disappearance of Cian McLaughlin.

 

Correction - Our comment about bears in the park was misleading when we said there are Grizzly's and brown bears in Grand Teton National Park.  While Grizzly's are technically brown bears, not all brown bears are Grizzly's.  Generally, brown bears are considered to be those of the species that have access to coastal food resources.  Grizzly's live further inland and typically don't have access to marine-derived food.

EP. #53: Gwen Hasselquist Part 2 - Gig Harbor - Washington

(UPDATE- We experienced some issues with Mike's audio feed on this episode resulting in his volume being lower than normal - we apologize to anyone having a hard time hearing the episode and will have the issue corrected on the next show.)

 

In Episode 50, we learned about a suspicious death, a husband who remarried within months, who then fled the country.  With very little coverage of the death, and even less information about the events leading up to her death, we submitted FOIA requests to fill in the gaps.  Recently, one of our FOIA requests was completed and a 21-page police report on Gwen's death was sent to us.   Join us this week as we continue to investigate the death of Gwen Hasselquist.  A copy of the Police report will be posted on our website after this episode is published.

EP. #50: Gwen Hasselquist - Gig Harbor - Washington

A Note about this episode- For our regular listeners, this episode is a departure from the normal cases we cover.  A lawyer with sources close to the subject of this episode contacted us about the death of a woman named Gwen Hasselquist.  While her obituary lists the cause of death as Covid-19, his sources are convinced foul play is involved.  The following episode is our fact finding, in person interview, with the lawyer who has taken a personal interest in investigating this case.  Since recording this interview, we have filed several FOIA requests with local law enforcement, seeking out any additional information on what might have happened to Gwen.  If or when we discover significant additional information about Gwen, we will release a follow up episode to discuss the findings.  There are also some quotes containing profanity so parental discretion is advised.

 

March 2020, Gig Harbor Washington, Gwen Hasselquist is diagnosed with COVID 19, and goes missing.  Shortly after an obituary is posted in the local paper indicating that she passed away from the illness.  However, there are conflicting statements about the actual cause of her death.  Join us this week as we investigate the death of Gwen Hasselquest.
