22 murders : investigating the massacres, cover-up and obstacles to justice in Nova Scotia

22 murders : investigating the massacres, cover-up and obstacles to justice in Nova Scotia

Palango, Paul, 1950- author
2022

As news broke of a killer rampaging across the tiny community of Portapique, Nova Scotia, late on April 18, 2020, details were oddly hard to come by. The RCMP was largely silent then, and continued to obscure the actions of denturist Gabriel Wortman. Watching the RCMP stumble through the Portapique massacre, Palango knew the story behind the headlines was more complicated and damning than anyone was willing to admit. Palango peels away the layers of this murderous episode, and unearthing the collision of failure and malfeasance that cost a quiet community 22 innocent lives.

Tears of the silenced : an Amish true crime memoir of childhood sexual abuse, brutal betrayal and ultimate survival

Tears of the silenced : an Amish true crime memoir of childhood sexual abuse, brutal betrayal and ultimate survival

Griffin, Misty, author
2018

"When Misty was six years old her family started to live and dress like the Amish. Misty and her sister were kept as slaves on a mountain ranch where they were subjected to almost complete isolation, sexual abuse and extreme physical violence. Their step-father kept a loaded rifle by the door at all times to make sure the young girls were too terrified to try to escape. They also knew that no rescue would ever come because only a couple of people even knew they existed and did not know them well enough to care. When Misty reached her teens, her parents feared she and her sister would escape and took them to an Amish community where they were adopted and became baptized members. Misty was devastated to once again find herself in a world of fear, animal cruelty and sexual abuse. Going to the police was severely frowned upon. A few years later, Misty was sexually assaulted by the bishop. As Misty recalls, "Amish sexual abusers are only shunned by the church for six weeks, a punishment that never seems to work. After I was assaulted by the bishop I knew I had to get help and one freezing morning in early March I made a dash for a tiny police station in rural Minnesota. After reporting the bishop I left the Amish and found myself plummeted into the strange modern world with only a second-grade education and no ID or social security card. To all abuse survivors out there, please be encouraged, the cycle of abuse can be broken. Today, I am a nursing student working towards my master's degree and a child abuse awareness activist. This is my story."" Amazon.com.
