Justice: How Project Angel Cracked The Candace Derksen Case
It was a case that many believed would never be solved.
But thanks to the modern miracle of scientific analysis – combined with a dedicated police service – Candace Derksen’s killer was finally brought to justice. Exactly 26 years to the day her frozen body was found in a shed, Candace’s accused killer went to trial.
This is a story about a family’s loss, a community’s sense of peace betrayed, a seeming never-ending search for answers, and an underlying message about never giving up hope. Mike McIntyre is a justice reporter with the Winnipeg Free Press and a national radio show host. This is his fifth best selling true-crime book.
