Someone knows something

My heart goes out to Rach, I just can’t imagine how extremely hard it would all be and feel alot of anger towards the Police who didn’t investigate properly. I often wonder how the Police or Coroner would feel if it was their child. Would they stamp it as just missing and died to the weather or suicide? Or would they have every hand on deck investigating every possible lead they had? I know 100% what they would be doing. Great podcast guys, so appreciative that you guys do this voluntarily to help, not many people out there like that anymore so good on you 🙏🏽 My heart is always with you Rach 💕
Edit to add I just can’t believe a Coroner would put Jays death down as due to the elements. The Coroner should know as well as anyone does that Jay would have been found if that was the case and if the coroner couldn’t work that out then it’s time to retire & let someone else in there that’s going to do the job properly. That really annoys me that’s in the report.

Great podcast

I finally had time to listen and very impressed with how thoroughly this is being looked into. I hope there is closure for the family soon and Jayden is found!

Disgraced former Superintendent story idea...

Hey, you guys should do an episode on Operation Errigal and the high-ranking bald, middle-aged pen-pusher who got caught-up with sexy Officer A. Ask Mick about it. I’m enjoying keeping up with Mick’s monthly guest appearances at the Downing Centre. He should get some good material for the podcast in his two years behind bars. You should call your show ‘The Missing Phone’...Mick couldn’t find his for the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission. Seriously, why have you got the most hated bloke in the NSW Police on your podcast? If you think Mick’s giving you credibility you’re sorely mistaken...paper cuts and knifing people in the back are his specialty.
