Capital Voices: RCMP commissioner's unforgettable case: 'The murderer sent me a Christmas card' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, July 5, 2017
And she says that Dave leaves for the evening and doesn’t come back til the early morning. But he does have a trunkful of marijuana, and they go on this big spree. They buy a truck in Edson, Alberta, and go around selling marijuana and having a big time living off the proceeds. And so far we have a very strong foundation to suspect Dave, but we don’t have any real evidence.“But McCarthy calls us back the next day to say ‘I forgot to tell you something. There’s a little berm out of a rise coming out of Edson where we stopped one day and threw the trunk, because we had all the pot in the truck.’ So off to Edson we go, where we recover the trunk, and we’re able to take the plastic wrapping there that had been cut from the same roll – and there was a physical match to the plastic that’s at the stash site back at the Skolos farm.“So it’s coming together. But do you think I could get anybody to take this on as a murder trial? Because we don’t have a body and we’ve got a lot of work to do. And in fairness, it is a stretch.
Convicted murderer David Pritchard in 2014, when, due to his terminal cancer, he was granted parole from prison. He was 51. He died last year.“I’d run a wiretap on this guy, but it wasn’t getting us anything. Whoever put the microphone in the place put it right by the furnace, and it was wintertime, so about every three or four minutes, whatever you were listening to was gone.“But Dave is mad at McCarthy, and we hear on the wire that he’s trying to figure out how he can kill her, because she’s a witness and a liability, she’s a loose end. So I do a search warrant on his house to get his firearms. I knew that would make him crazy, plus it’s in the public interest that he not have weapons because he wants to kill McCarthy. And he comes home and we’re listening to him on the wire, and he’s going nuts.“So he pages me, and I call and he says ‘I understand you and the boys were by the house today.’ I said, ‘Yeah, we were. You weren’t there. Were you hiding, Dave?’...
