Journey for Justice: How Project Angel Cracked the Candace Derksen Case (Paperback)
It was one of the most gripping murder mysteries in Winnipeg’s history; a case that many believed would never be solved. But thanks to the modern miracle of scientific analysis - combined with a dedicated police service that refused to give up hope- 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. Ultimately, jurors found Mark Edward Grant guilty of second degree murder following three days of deliberations. This is a story about a family's loss, a community's sense of peace betrayed, a seeming never-ending search for answers amidst a stream of rumours, and an underlying message about never giving up hope.
