A must listen!

A fantastic podcast told in an interesting and suspenseful way whilst also remaining respectful to those involved/affected by these crimes. Rachael is incredibly empathetic and is great to listen to.

Great

Fantastic investigative journalism. Thank goodness for competent people who don’t give up on the victims and the victims families whether the suspect is dead or not. It will hopefully lead to closure for the people who matter. Hail to forensic science!
