Sorry so late

I have questions to this? Why haven’t you opened this up to a question and answer for the listeners? This might help looking at an angle from multiple perspectives. For instance, did someone show Forrest a picture of the first witness? You all interviewed the 1st witness and you didn’t sneak a current photo to ask Forrest if he looked familiar? This is never brought up. Seems obvious to me the 1st witness is lying. He even stated he was behind the cop listening when Forrest was giving his story. Was he hiding because he knew Forrest may recognize him? He def has something to do with it. Not thinking he’s the shooter, but maybe the 2nd perp.???

Very good. Very sad. Loved it. Kept me intrigued.

Weak!

Far too manyepisodes for a story that could have been told in 1 episode; has no resolution; reporter tells you in the first episode that Forest is charged and released- so there’s little reason to keep listening. Could have been done much better!!
