Chapter 5 UPDATE Mark Edward Grant Verdict

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-yg6ji-78ba07

Candace disappeared in Winnipeg, on her way home from school, in November 1984. Following weeks of searching, the teen’s body was found frozen in an industrial storage shed, not far from the family’s home

For years the family was left without answers until Mark Grant was arrested in 2007. In 2011, a jury found Grant guilty in the teen’s slaying and he was sentenced to 25 years in prison but the decision was overturned in 2013 by the Manitoba Court of Appeal.

The retrial came to a close Wednesday, with a Court of Queen’s Bench judge ruling that Grant was not guilty.
