On April 12, 2024, news broke that Sylvie Hauth, the former police chief of Thunder Bay, was arrested and charged with a series of criminal offenses. 

But none of the news reports explained much about just what the hell was happening this time.

Most of this story is still unknown, but this week, Karyn Pugliese, Ryan McMahon, and Jon Thompson will tell you what they can, what they have verified so far, and they will give you their best sense — let’s call it a theory — of what the big-picture story is here.

Host: Jesse Brown
