Episode Notes from Original Patreon Release (July 25th, 2021): 

Nothing like ending the month off like talking about a depressing true crime case that involves children... right? Sorry to discuss such a depressing case - but this one is weird and has a bunch of twists and turns.

This month we talk about the potentially solved case which took place in the 1980's at the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children - also known as Sick Kids hospital.

Need a distraction? We got you.
