Very thorough just overwhelming

There’s so much tragedy and so much happening with these still open cases that it can become overwhelming but this show is thoroughly researched and balanced. I love the John Douglas interview at the end. I think it’s really great that after Payne’s success he chose to highlight this important story.

Overwhelming and heart felt

Thanks for making this podcast there are not many podcast out about black ppl and some of the ones out there barely touch the surface. I love the way this story is being told through the ppl who experienced and were affected by it.

PLEASE PLEASE READ

My mom was born in Atl and lived in the area she was 11 around the time that all this was happening. She says in 1982 they took some of the reward money and sent her and about 20 other kids from urban youth camps to France for 7 days. That is some of what I’ve heard about what happened with the reward money and she wants to know if anybody else remembers going or took part in those trips.?.?.?
