Listen to the last episode:

In the fall of 2016, the CFL season was well underway and the Calgary Stampeders were on fire. When the Stamps beat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Sept. 24 of that year, the team set a record winning streak. After the game, the team went out to celebrate. What should have been a fun night on the town, was instead marred by tragedy. A simple, accidental brush into the wrong person set the tone for the rest of the evening. In the latest episode of Crime Beat podcast, Global news senior crime reporter Nancy Hixt shares the story of a young man who beat the odds to become a professional football player only to have that dream suddenly shattered.
