In this episode of Adversity to Inspiration: The JTD Coaches Me Podcast, Health, Mindset and Wellness Coach, Joann Tierney-Daniels has a conversation about murder, secrets, and running from, then confronting the past. Joann's guest, Jan Canty, faced all 3 after confronting the murder of her husband over 30 years ago.
After Jan Canty's spouse went missing, she discovered he had been leading a double life. Soon afterward, detectives told Jan her husband had been murdered and his body dismembered. Alan Canty, a respected psychologist, had been trolling the Cass Corridor in Detroit for prostitutes. Alan's obsession with prostitutes led him into a relationship with Dawn Spens, whose pimp boyfriend, John Fry, bludgeoned Canty to death. Thrown into a tawdry case and media frenzy, Jan left Michigan, changed her name, and started a new life. Now, more than 30 years later, she's beginning to speak about the case that forced her into hiding and changed life as she once knew it. Her debut book, A Life Divided, was written from the vantage point of thirty years reflection. It spawned her podcast "The Domino Effect of Murder" which invites other homicide survivors to share their own survival story with others.
