About the Author


In 2011, the lives of 48 Edmontonians came to a sudden, violent end, leading to the city of Edmonton gaining the dubious moniker of the year: “Murder Capital of Canada. ” It wasn’t the first time the city of champions had snagged the title nobody wants to claim.  

In Deadmonton, former Edmonton Sun reporter Pamela Roth takes a look at some of Edmonton’s most notorious murders, both solved and unsolved. Told first-hand by the victims’ families, these stories serve as a disturbing reminder of the horror that humans are capable of inflicting upon each other, and highlight the immense sadness and pain left in the wake of these crimes. But Deadmonton also gives a glimpse into the lives of detectives working tirelessly to bring closure to the families and justice to the victims’ names.
