Excellent, Sad

You really get to know the victim and her family in this show. It’s a very professional production. While the police wanted to close the case and rule Holly’s death an accident, this show argues there’s much more to her death than meet’s the eye. A lot of the story involves how people with blindness or partial sight navigate the world. Excellent production.

Irresponsible journalism

I feel very sorry for Holly and her family. This is a sad and confusing case but the shoddy reporting by Maggie Rahr is so infuriating I had to review. She so clearly is trying only to prove foul play and cherry-picks what may support murder and is unjustifiably dismissive of any other evidence. Episode 3 is when it really gets bad. It’s such a shameful and misleading way to conduct an investigation. She also tried to dramatize her own “research” efforts in a ridiculous and contrived way that took the focus iff her subject. Oh, you’ve climbed so many stairs in a hot building?? What a martyr! Who cares??
I didn’t even listen to the last episode because I didn’t want to hear her slander the taxi driver anymore. I was shocked that she repeatedly uses his name again and again to imply he’s a murderer with no evidence. Leave the man alone! Such a lack if integrity.

Please read the review by LydianalaMode, as she does an excellent job summarizing all of the problematic reporting.

If this network does another podcast series I hope they kick Ms. Rahr to the curb and leave the tabloid-level reporting behind. She’s better suited to paranormal “investigation” than real stories.
