NOTES: FIRST OF ALL, LET ME JUST GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO @shady-swan-jones for making me this banner for the story. I’m so excited and it truly encompasses the entire aesthetic of the work. And for just in general being so kind/supportive. I am so grateful thank you thank thank you forever. SECOND OF ALL it’s been a while since I updated I realize that and I apologize. I was traveling and job interviewing and had very little computer/internet access the past few weeks. That being said, I made this chapter a bit longer to (hopefully) make up for that. The support I have gotten on this story has been lovely and it really keeps me writing, so thank you all for that. I love hearing from people, and I am very grateful.

“The woman in the picture, she isn’t who you think she is… her name isn’t Grace. It’s Milah. She’s Robert Gold’s ex-wife…” The words in Emma’s throat felt like daggers as they slipped from her mouth. Especially as she watched Killian’s calm expression go through about twelve different phases of shock, disbelief, and sadness.
Teenage Babysitter Lured to her Death: 36 Years Cold
15 year-old Kelly Jane Evelyn Cook lived with her parents in the village of Standard, Alberta. This village is about 70 kilometres northeast of Calgary, a big city in Alberta, Canada. It’s a small village - today the population is 353. The Wikipedia page for the village includes only three sections: Demographics; Athletics; and The murder of Kelly Cook.
Kelly, like many young girls her age, was a babysitter for families in the community. She usually babysat once or twice a week and made the arrangements by telephone.
On the morning of April 22, 1981, Kelly received a phone call at her house from a man looking for a babysitter. He said his name was as Bill Christensen. Police have stated that he got Kelly’s number from her friend after the friend had turned Bill down because she was busy.
The phone call was at 8:20am. Bill Christensen needed a babysitter for that evening, and he and Kelly arranged that her would pick Kelly up from her home, and drop her off back at home at midnight.
Twelve hours later, at 8:30pm, a full-sized cream coloured North American car pulled up in front of Kelly’s house. Bill Christensen picked up Kelly from her home while her mother watched on. Kelly’s mother never suspected it would be the last time she saw her daughter.
Kelly’s family had an agreement with their daughter that she would call once she arrived at someone’s house for a babysitting job. On April 22, Kelly never made that call. Kelly’s mother Marion started getting worried around 9:30pm and called around. “I started phoning her friends, I phoned the postmistress to ask if anyone new moved to town and I called my friend at the bank and asked her, too”, Marion said.
Around midnight, Kelly’s parents decided to call the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police). The police called every Christensen (there were multiple families by this name), but none of them knew who Bill Christensen was.
Kelly’s younger sister Marnie Kathol reflected on that night in an interview with Global News. “I remember going to bed and waking up probably after midnight and the police were already there,” she said. The police had started their investigation into Kelly’s disappearance that very night.
It had only been hours after Kelly’s disappearance that 400 local residents and 40 officers had started searching. Police knocked on every door in the village and searched all through the village’s perimeters, including rural properties and abandoned buildings.
It was a long eight weeks of searching before Kelly’s remains were located by accident. Her body was found in an irrigation canal in the Chin Lake Reservoir on June 28, 1981. The water levels were low because of drought and the heavy irrigation that year. A young teen came across the horrific discovery while riding his motorbike. Based on searches in Google Maps, this is about 200 kilometres from Kelly’s village.
Kelly’s body was fully clothed. Her body had been tied to cinder blocks and thrown into the water. The remains were identified through dental records. According to one newspaper source, the police could not determine cause of death, however they could determine that she was not sexually assaulted. Another, later article, stated that Kelly died of asphyxiation.
Police have had several persons of interest over the years but no suspects. They believe that the crime was planned over a one or two month period.

the combination of the song, charlie’s growing insanity, mac having a panic attack, the fact they’d only been working there about a week and the legendary meme made from this scene makes it the most iconic thing to come out of always sunny imo. happy pepe silvia day!
