This podcast provides new information and insight into Donna's case. We also detail a string of ransacking burglaries, the murder of another young teen, and the shooting of a father protecting his daughter as she was being kidnapped.

Best research on early VR-Ear crimes

Great podcast, can’t recommend enough!

The hits keep coming, backed by documentary evidence. If only the police would have put in this much effort. Think of all the rapes, burglaries and murders that would have been avoided by convicting the right man?

To those who are bored or complain about the reading of court transcripts, maybe a simple coloring book is more your speed?

Best true crime story ever, and we still don’t know all the answers.
