So well done - Highly recommend

I had never heard of the case before, and the the producers/journalists do a very professional job reviewing the case and highlighting the gaping holes and inconsistencies in the investigation. When those who are meant to protect us do us harm, in the name of protecting themselves...

Great for a binge

Kind of rare to find a podcast you can binge, this is one of them. Well produced and narrated.

Addicting!

Excellent podcast, very well done! Leaves the listener wondering what truly happened and whether or not the justice system did the correct thing. Haunting!
