Crime Beat Podcast | Hunted by evil part 2: The Monstrous acts of Douglas Garland
On July 4, 2014, four days into an Amber Alert, a suspect was arrested in connection with the disappearance of Nathan O’Brien and his grandparents Alvin and Kathy Liknes.
An RCMP emergency response team searched the farm where Douglas Garland lived with his parents.
At that time, there wasn’t enough evidence to charge Garland with kidnapping. Instead, he was arrested on unrelated fraud charges.
In the meantime, investigators got a warrant and began an exhaustive search of the expansive 40-acre Garland property — one that would become the biggest in Calgary police history.
In Part Two of the Crime Beat series “Hunted by Evil,” you’ll hear from the rookie officer who tracked Garland in the darkness and the forensic investigators who scoured the Garland property for months.
