In July 2016, a Calgary mother, Sara Baillie, was found dead in her home, and her five-year-old daughter, Taliyah Marsman, was missing.

Three days later, an Amber Alert came to a heartbreaking end when the little girl was found dead.

On this episode of Global News podcast Crime Beat, crime reporter Nancy Hixt takes a look at who killed Sara and Taliyah.

 

Hours after Taliyah’s body was recovered, police announced a man was charged in the case.

Edward Downey was accused of two counts of first-degree murder.
