Saskatoon, Saskatchewan: Chelsey Gunn, whose brother Anthony was killed over a decade ago, at her home in Saskatoon on Jan. 21, 2020 said she was eight months pregnant when she woke up at 2 a.m. on a late August, 2010 morning with a feeling of dread - an instinct, she calls it - gnawing at her about her younger brother.
Anthony Gunn should not have been in Saskatoon that night. He was supposed to be out of town for work, painting at a construction project. But he and Chelsey were preparing to move in together and she had needed help with the cable hookup, so he'd returned home a day early and was staying with their mother.
Chelsey called their mother's house to check on him, but no one answered. She tried calling again and again. Eventually, her teen brother answered and said Tony, as he was known to the family, was lying in a pool of blood, moaning.
Chelsey gathered her children and walked over to the home in the 600 block of Avenue M South. Yellow police tape surrounded it.
"That's when I knew, then and there, he was gone," she said.
At some point in the ensuing years, the police investigation into Anthony's death went from being just an "unsolved" case to a "historic" one, joining more than 20 historic homicides or suspicious missing person's cases in the caseload of the Saskatoon Police Service's historical cases section.
Though time has passed, police say these cases are not "cold" - it is still possible for new evidence to emerge and new witnesses to come forward. The cases can still be cracked, even with the passage of months, years or decades.
Anthony Gunn's death was first considered a suspicious death, but police soon upgraded it to a homicide. He was 23. His August 26th death was recorded as Saskatoon's seventh homicide of 2010. No one has been charged.
Chelsey continues to hope that charges will be laid in her brother's case.

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan: Darren Greschuk lived with her common-law wife, Michelle Sansom, in a small bungalow on a quiet street in Riversdale. He owned a tow-trucking company. He was also a partner in a successful tree removal business. They'd been together since high school and had a son, Dustin.
Michelle Sansom still remembers the sound that changed her life forever.
A crisp, loud bang rang through Saskatoon's Riversdale neighbourhood.
The shot, fired into the darkness on that July night more than a decade ago, sent a shock wave through Sansom's comfortable, middle-class existence.
"At this time we were in the neighbourhood for ten years. We trusted it. We never had any issue. We were pretty comfortable," she recalls.
That domestic bliss was shattered on July 8, 2006.
It had been an unseasonably warm July and the rain that night was a welcome respite. The couple left their front door open to let the cool breeze into the living room. Dustin, who was 10 years old at the time, was sleeping at his grandparents' place. Michelle and Darren ate takeout burgers at the coffee table in the living room, listening to rain fall outside.
When Michelle went to bed first, around 10 p.m., Darren told her to leave the door open. He wanted to keep the refreshing breeze flowing through the house.
The next thing she remembers is waking abruptly to loud noises. She walked out of the bedroom, she says. That's when she first saw a face that would haunt her for years to come.
"It can really tear you apart. You brain is never the same after someone puts a gun to your head," she says.
The man had walked into their house and hit Darren over the head with a handgun. He demanded money, waving the gun and ordering them outside onto their deck.
"He kept demanding money, 'Where is your money?" He thought Darren had money, which he didn't," she says.
Once out on the deck, Darren convinced the man to go back inside the house for the keys to his garage. That's when Michelle ran, leaping off the deck. She squeezed herself between two houses and waited.
