It's been five years since renowned 770 CHQR sports director Billy Powers and his wife Donna-Lee were found dead in their home in the Calgary Braeside neighbourhood.

Charged with second degree murder of the Powers, Derek Puffer was found not criminally responsible for the killings on July 4, 2013.

The Alberta Review Board, which reviews Puffers' case on a regular basis, last met on September 6, 2017 and found Puffer still to be "a significant threat to the safety of the public and isn't entitled to an absolute discharge."
