This is one of my favorites!! I love every season and I especially loved the 4th. It’s not always going to be the answers you want from a long form podcast but I appreciate that much more! It’s about the person, the case and every side of the story. EXCELLENT every time!!!

My heart goes to John’s parents Helen and Mack, and his friend Patrick🫂 I hope one day the truth will come out and John may Rest In Peace.
