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.

Very sad story, average journalistic work.

Very sad story. The lack of police work is very frustrating. Don’t understand why the partner wasn’t a suspect when it was very obviously not a suicide. As for the actual podcast quality, we found the audio to be low quality and it was distracting having different narrators. The journalist’s work is quite disjointed and doesn’t bring to surface any information of interest. Not a great true crime podcast.

Thanks

Hey Sly as a 32 year VicPol veteran, thanks for your stories. I’ve enjoyed going back over some of the investigations, not all stories for obvious reasons.

Looking forward to some new material particularly some of the more recent investigations.

I reckon your followers would enjoy some of the high flyers who have come to a screaming halt through their greed and selfishness. Leave the rest with you to follow up.

Cheers
