Heartbreaking

The parents are so well spoken and their grief is palpable. Makes for extremely difficult listening. A lot of information concerning the alleged involvement of the partner is not featured which leaves you feeling that a big part of the story wasn’t told. Of course this could not be helped. Leaves you feeling very dark. Respectfully told and how her father speaks about her is like nothing I’ve heard before - he so greatly admired and loved his daughter. Just so, so very sad.

Great Podcast. Poor Phoebe

Loved this podcast, despite my frustration at the obvious incompetence and coverups surrounding Phoebes death.

Great podcast

Really enjoyed this podcast & really feel for the family. There really is something just not right with this!
I hope the law is changed and her family find out what actually happened.
