For those who worked there it may have seemed like a bad soap opera but its probably one of the worst written reality scripts ever, and sadly its not a TV show. I’m talking about the drama-filled goodness that was my former employer, WebSourced / MarketSmart / Think / KeywordRanking et al. Sure they have been out of business for a while but the drama never stops.
Some of you may remember the post I put up for a brief period of time about my visit from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police that I quickly had to remove, but if not, don’t fear, I will rehash what I remember and then update you on the recent happenings. I’ll change the names to protect the innocent, or rather the convicted!
Back one morning in April, I was on my couch hard at work in the morning (as usual), when I got an authoritative knock on my door. I popped out of my EncoreEast induced coma, and peaked out the window to see a Morrisville black and white in my driveway and a glance to the right I could see a large black gun. I immediately ran through everything I had done recently and wondering why the Moville cops were coming for me, did they really see me rolling that stop sign….again? Clueless, I opened the door and the detective says he has a message for Evan Roberts from a Detective Gretsky from the Ottawa Police department. I know nobody in Canada, and I have never even been to Canada, there’s no way I could have done something wrong that would send the Mounties after me!
After a few minutes of contemplating wtf was going on, I eagerly called and got a voicemail that said “You’ve reached Detective Gretsky of the Ottawa Police Department’s Major Crimes Division.” Major Crimes Division? What. In. The. Hell? Now I’m officially clueless as to what is going on. While I waited for the detective to call me back I researched what the major crimes division does “Grand Theft, Assaults, Cold Cases and Murders.” With every passing second this gets creepier and creepier. After 15 minutes Detective Gretsky calls me back and blows my mind.
The detective tells me he is in charge of cold cases and is investigating the “brutal murder of a young girl back in the 80s.” I think it was 80s, may have been 70s, its been a while. I asked him some details questions and he was only able to tell me a few things but said it is one of the most gruesome things he’s ever seen and new evidence has brought him to find me. Gretsky went on to say that he’s investigating a certain VP of Websourced, a one Mr Mork Camphouser, in this young girls murder and found my blog by doing a few Google searches about Websourced and Mork. In one of my posts I said that I sat near Mork’s cousin’s office, Geoff, and overheard a lot of the conversations that went on in there.
Gretsky asked me if I ever heard Mork, Geoff or Pal talk about the incident, which I had obviously not or I’m pretty sure I would have said something already. The detective started telling me he had substantial evidence of Mork’s “sketchy and colorful past” and was wondering if I could provide anymore incite into his character or anything. The only thing I said was pretty much what any one of you would have said, which was that I wouldn’t trust any of them as far as I could throw’em and that Mork was the nicest of the 3 but that is not saying much at all.
Detective Gretsky said he would call me back and let me know what had come of the case but I never really expected him to. While I haven’t heard from him since that day, there is a rumor going around that Mork Camphouser has been arrested by said detective and convicted of the crime in question! I never thought I’d know a murderer let alone work for one. I haven’t been able to find any news about it to confirm, I guess I could call Detective Gretsky again but I really don’t care that much to chase down the story anymore than it has chased me down.
Websourced never ceases to amaze me, I can only wonder what is next in this ever evolving saga.
