128 The Rallo Family Murders—Part 1
[Part 1 of 2] In the summer of 1976, the Rallo family appeared to be living the picture perfect family life in the “Golden Horseshoe” area of Southern Ontario.
Parents Jon and Sandra with young children Jason and Stephanie had enjoyed a warm family summer full of trips to visit grandparents and swimming... that is, until one morning when Jon woke up to an empty house, and a devastating note.
This two-part series provides a snapshot of Canadian history at a pivotal time for both the burgeoning city of Hamilton and the criminal justice system.
An additional content warning: this case includes the murder of a child, although no graphic details will be given. Please take care when listening.
Part 2 will be released to everyone on February 22 - one week after Part 1.
If you're listening ad-free on a premium feed, Part 2 is available now on Amazon Music - included with Prime, Apple Podcasts, Patreon and Supercast.
