The Toronto Police Service has launched a unique, six-episode series of its 24 Shades of Blue podcast with Obie & Ax.

Featuring A/Detective Sergeant Stephen Smith of Homicide - Cold Case, this break-out series will highlight an unsolved, historic homicide or missing persons case during each episode.

"With any cold case, we are only ever one piece of information away from solving the mystery," said A/D/Sgt. Smith. "Any time we can talk about these cases, it gives us the chance to rekindle memories and start conversations and that means we have another chance to bring closure to a family who has been waiting far too long for answers."

The first episode of 24 Shades of Blue - Cold Case Edition features the case of Patrick Santos, Homicide #49/2006. It includes a statement from Patrick's mother, read by host Andy O'Brien.

All episodes can be found on Google Podcasts, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, YouTube, and many other places podcasts can be found. Click here for the podcast provider of your choice.

A portion of their equity is owned by the Sick Kids Foundation and they have a distinguished Advisory Board, including Michelle Romanow from Dragon’s Den.
