In late 1970’s and early 80’s a sexual predator was on the loose. Two little girls had heard about the man dubbed the “Southwest Calgary Rapist” but they never imagined they would cross paths with him while riding their bikes one hot sunny day. At the same time, homicide detectives were investigating the death of a five-year old girl who disappeared on her way to kindergarten. Learn the unprecedented steps officers took and the haunting connection between the two cases as Global News' Senior Crime Reporter Nancy Hixt shares “The hunt for a predator.” Contact: Instagram: @nancy.hixt Facebook: Email: Learn more about your ad choices.
