Dark Adaptation

Dark Adaptation Podcast explores all things macabre, mysterious, and downright dark. Join Brianna every Monday for a new episode full of intrigue, information, and entertainment! While we typically dive into lesser-known stories or Canadian cases, we do cover well-known cases and stories, too. For those more ”popular” cases that you thought you knew, we promise we’ll deliver so much information and intrigue you’re guaranteed to learn something new. And that’s not all - you’ll also experience a unique, cosmic twist from our special guest host, Steph, who delves into the charts and skies of those people and places we’ve heard of a million times. Our other guest host, Paige, is also featured on some episodes to bring us into the world of cryptids and folklore.

In 2005, Eddie Tillman was a 14-year-old boy living in Brooklyn with his loving mother and sisters. On August 10, his mother dropped him off at summer school, gave him some lunch money, and watched as he entered the school. That was the last time she saw her son. Two months prior to his disappearance, he came out as gay and his family accepted him into loving arms. After his disappearance, his mother learned he was communicating with men online. Are one of these men responsible for his disappearance? Are the police correct when they say he ran away? What really happened to Eddie Tillman?
If you have any information about the disappearance of Eddie Tillman, who has been missing from Manhattan’s Lower East Side in New York City since August 10, 2005, please contact the New York Police Department Missing Persons Squad at (212) 694-7781.

We know we left you hanging at the end of Part One, so in Part Two of our episode discussing Erin Chorney's case we jump right into the major crime technique the RCMP and the Brandon Police Service utilized to help progress their investigation into Erin's disappearance... 
 
The technique used was an elaborate and controversial one known as a Mr. Big sting operation. Sure, this technique is outlawed in other countries, but here in Canada we love utilizing this audacious tactic.
 
Tune in to Part Two to hear all about this sting operation and what it did for the police's investigation.

Pepita Redhair was a happy, fun, sweet woman who had everything going for her. She had a loving family behind her, she was enrolled in University with dreams of becoming a teacher or an engineer; Pepita was going places. But all of that changed when she vanished in March of 2020. Her family was frantic - where did she go and why did no one seem to care? Her boyfriend was evasive (he still is to this day) and law enforcement was falling back on the horrible cliches we see far too often - "She's allowed to be missing", "she's probably out on a bender", "don't worry about it". But her family was worried. Where was their sweet girl? How can a promising young woman vanish off the face of the earth?
If you have any information about the disappearance of Pepita Madalyn Redhair, who has been missing from Albuquerque, New Mexico since March 27, 2020, please contact the Albuquerque Police Department at (505) 242-2677, the New Mexico Department of Public Safety - Missing Person Hotline at (800) 457-3463, you can call in an anonymous tip at 505-843-STOP, or you can email the Attorney General’s Office at mmiwr@nmag.gov.
