Bossie Chris ,

The Gustafson Murders

This was my first story. First off you two DO sound alike, and your voices are very easy to listen to. You also sound like your having a good time, even with gory tales.
My reaction is wondering if the father had any guilt over not believing his daughters and investigating their stories. It might have saved lives. Very sad outcome.
