coverart template.jpg

Toronto, Ontario. December 2015.

In the middle of the day, and within the aisles of Shoppers Drug mart, an unprovoked random stabbing leaves Rosemary Junor clinging to life.

In the days after the attack, the city became captivated by the manhunt for the beautiful, well dressed women, security cameras captured fleeing the store while the victim screamed for her life.

When the suspect is apprehended the story she told about nanotechnology and mind control would cement this case, and the name Rohinie Bisesar, among Canada's most bizarre crimes.

In this episode, we are joined by investigative journalist Raizel Robin (author of 'What happened to Rohinie Bisesar') who helps share the bizarre story of Rohinie Bisesar and the unprovoked murder she is accused of.

In this "where are they now" style episode, Sunray will tell us about what she has been up to in the 6 months since we last spoke.

The Great Amherst Mystery is a notorious case of poltergeist activity which centered around then 18 year old Esther Cox of Amherst, Nova Scotia between 1878 and 1879.

Thanks to the various news reports and writings that still exist from the time, The Great Amherst Mystery is often cited as being the world's best documented case of it's type.  

In this episode, I will be joined by Laurie Glenn Norris (Author of Haunted Girl) who shares the results of her investigation into Esther Cox's life both before, during, and after the events of the Great Amherst Mystery.

Haunted Halifax - 2 - Black Rock Beach (with Steve Vernon)

Halifax's Black Rock Beach is home to many dog walkers, bike riders, and picnic enthusiasts, but the site's history is far darker then those casually strolling through may realize. 

A rock outcropping on Black Rock Beach was the site of one of Halifax's public gallows. Not only were many executed on the site, but their lifeless bodies were left hanging to serve as warning to incoming sailors. 

In this episode, I am again joined by past Nighttime guest and local horror storyteller Steve Vernon who shares his story The Piecemeal Ghost of Black Rock Beach

Emma Fillipoff - 7 - the Girl in the Photo

We’ve all heard it said that a picture is worth a thousand words. 

In this episode, the power of a photograph will be put on full display. 

Our story begins when a photographer points his camera in the right direction at the right moment in time and by chance alone, captures an image that has set off a roller coaster ride of hope and despair.

Although the photograph may appear typical, it's story would change dramatically when it becomes suspected that the photograph includes Emma Fillipoff, captured by chance 2 years after she was last seen.

On Sept 22 I was a panelist in Atlantic Canada's largest comic book/sci fi convention. The panel was called 'Podcasting 101' and was planned to be a q and a session with developed podcasters, and attended by those planning to start, or recently began podcasting. 

The panel included myself, Corey from Pete's Paranormal Chronicles, Taylor from Sickboy, and Joel from Citadel Cafe. 

Chris Rutkowski and the Canadian UFO Survey

Chris Rutkowski's involvement in the Canadian UFO phenomenon runs so deep many refer to him simply as "the Canadian UFO guy". During his 40+ years of UFO related research, he has authored many books and appeared as an subject expert in countless television and documentary specials, including Unsolved Mysteries. 

What makes his contribution so unique, is that rather than focusing specifically on individual cases he instead uses the many connections he has made to compile data on all UFO reports made in Canada. 

Since 1989, he has analyzed this data and released his finding in an annual report titled the "Canadian UFO Survey". 

To anyone who questions the UFO activity above Canada, Chris Rutkowski is in a great position to tell you what appears to be happening above us.

The event featured an interview with the controversial leader of The Satanic Temple, Lucien Greaves

In this episode I share some behind the scenes details, and present a recording of the great night I shared with many of the show's listeners. 


Where is Mekayla Bali?

April 12, 2016, 16 year old Mekayla Bali failed to meet her ride home from her Yorkton, SK high school. It was then discovered Mekayla never attended classes that day, despite having been dropped off at the school earlier that morning. 

Over a year later, Mekayla has yet to be located and her family knows little more than they did that day. 

Investigators were able to build a timeline of her unusual activities that day, but the information contained only creates more questions... most notably where did she go after 1:45pm and why?

In this episode,  a capstone will be applied to the series covering Kayla 'Sunray' Reid's unusual story by consulting with Mike Kropveld, the world renowned expert on cults, new religious movements, and related phenomenon.

Kropveld has been referred to as "the cult whisperer" and the name fits.

Mike Kropveld has been intimately involved in the topic of cults after a high profile personal experience in the late 70s. In the years since, both directly and through his nonprofit group Info-Cult, Mike has assisted countless members, former members and families  of those affected by the phenomenon.

During our conversation, Mike answers the many questions I have about the topic of cults and helps remove some of the mystery the surrounds this controversial and often misunderstood topic.
