Happy Face is the story of Keith Hunter Jesperson, his brutal crimes, and the cat and mouse game he played with detectives and the media. But it’s also the story of the horrific legacy he gifted his children. Join Melissa Moore as she investigates her father’s crimes, reckons with the past, and wades through her darkest fears as she hunts for a better future.

Good podcast, God Awful music

Good lord the music in this podcast makes me want to stab my ears.

Cool story though, just hard to listen to sometimes

Wow.

You get the stories of the sons of one of the victims and the Happy Face killer’s daughter. So sad, but amazing to hear their experiences.

Wow

I have waited four hours for my lunch break so I could write this review. Lauren and company are incredible. They tell an amazing story and the other perspectives they bring on are wonderful to hear. With that being said Melissa makes this podcast unbearable, and before you say “listen to it more” I’ve listened to the whole thing. I don’t understand how you can throw yourself a pity party and try to play the victim when there are actual victims and families. I’m baffled people thought this was good.
