Season 3

I listened because I grew up in that area. Knowing that transients and cartel members now populate Malibu creek State Park will ensure I’ll never revisit my childhood haunts there. Chilling.

Also, I work in behavioral health in another state and agree with others that an arrestee demonstrating that degree of erratic behavior should have been assessed by a certified mental health team while she was still in custody. This would be true, regardless of her race or gender. Shame on LASD for not having this in place.

Catherine Fan

I found this podcast because I am subscribed to Catherine’s other podcast Red Collar. I loved how clear and concise her delivery was and looked for other podcasts by her. So far I’m a HUGE fan. Can’t go wrong with her.

Arm chair detective-too opinionated & hard on police

Should stick to facts, we can make up our minds without the biased opinions about the police. Had to stop in the middle of season 3. Sometimes terrible things happen and sadly there isn’t anyone to blame. PS. They owe Casey an apology lol
