captivating podcast

As a former resident of the Ohio Valley, I deeply connect with your podcast. My own experience with a heartbreaking loss of my parents , to a alleged "murder-suicide," further resonates with your content. The involvement of Belmont County law enforcement in similar cases at my parents' home is a poignant parallel. Poor investigation, not following protocols, even attempting to give the murder weapon to family. Your determination to seek justice for your father is truly remarkable. The tight-knit community and entrenched power structures have intimidated many from speaking up for years. Your perseverance in continuing this work is truly inspiring to me and many others who eagerly await each new episode. While dealing with the grief of losing a loved one can be overwhelming, your efforts provide hope and comfort.
