Amanda Johnson is an Acting Detective with the Edmonton Police Service. We met in August 2021 when Shari Forbes and I traveled to Edmonton to set-up a some sites for the “pig trials”.
Amanda was a member of the Missing Persons Unit when we first met, but has recently been promoted to the Homicide Unit. She is also a Search Manager in these contexts.
In this podcast, you’ll hear about:
- Amanda’s experience as a law enforcement member, through the RCMP and now EPS
- Her experience and training as a Search Manager in law enforcement
- How scattered and scavenged remains can impact a search for a missing person, and different strategies that can be used.
Check out my blog for a series of posts (“The Smell of Dead Pig in the Morning“) that features pictures and details about searching for the remains of the pig carcasses Amanda and I helped set-up.
