Now the Los Angeles and Montreal police are trying to piece together the final weeks of Jurvetson’s life and the fifth estate helps uncover new clues that might help unlock a decades-old mystery.

Victor Malarek tells the story of three men Abdi Ali Nur Mohamed, Mohamed Hassan Ismail Farah and Col. Yusuf Abdi Ali ‘Tokeh’, who had been accused of brutality, torture, beatings, and executions in Somalia. Malarek explores how the men were able to slip through the cracks of the Canadian immigration system, and how their presence was affecting the Somali community in Canada.

Police spent years searching for bodies, clues and answers. To this day, the seniors have never been found — and no one has been held accountable for their disappearance. Now, in a joint investigation with The Walrus magazine, The Fifth Estate uncovers long-secret police documents and new details about the people who went missing, the suspects police had in their sights and clues to what may have happened.

  18. Landon’s Webb’s Story – the fifth estate
    • Profile
      • Landon Webb still remembers the banging, screaming, and fighting inside the halls of one of Nova Scotia’s six institutions for mentally and physically disabled people. It got so bad, he says, he had to run away.

        Landon Webb is 25 years old, but his parents say he has the mental capacity of 12-year-old and needs to be protected. Six years ago his parents got guardianship over Landon under Nova Scotia’s Incompetent Persons Act. It meant among other things that Landon lost the right to lease an apartment, to vote, or even to get a library card.

        Webb, who was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder, is taking on the government and his parents to regain control over his life. With the help of a lawyer, Landon is challenging the Nova Scotia law – and that has sparked others to speak out about their struggles to live on their own.
