Fascinating story but way too long

This was a fascinating and incredibly sad story. I pray justice is served in this case. The podcast was great, however, it became so very repetitive. This story could have been told in half the number of episodes.

Too long

This is an interesting story and one that should be told but there is never really any new evidence or hard facts evolving throughout. I feel like I listened to the same episode 12 times.

Same story told over and over...

This really really REALLY could have been edited down... several hours were just different people repeating the exact same story and exact same details. Sure, enforce the idea that multiple people have the same story, but listening to it at full length from each person was agonizing at times.
