Not true crime 🤷🏽‍♀️

It was entertaining but I mean... why market it as true crime?

Wonderful fictional story

I’m not sure why so many did not understand this is fiction. It’s a sort of found footage style of audio dramas. It’s written as a true crime horror story. It’s highlighting the real life crimes often overlooked by people in places like USA. It highlights the real issues of crimes against the marginalized and Mia bringing it to the attention of those that overlook it.

It’s a fantastic story. Don’t let those who misunderstood and down rated it.

- written by a 3,300 year old alien vampire.
