MISSOULA - Today, ABC FOX Montana brings you the final of a three-part series, brought to you by our "Montana Murder Mysteries" podcast.

Rest Home Rapes and Homicides Part 2: The Death of Bertha Scott
ABC FOX Montana brings you a look into Part Two of a Three-Part series, brought to you by our "Montana Murder Mysteries" podcast. The mysterious abduction, rape and murder of Nancy Lagerquist, an 87-year-old Riverside Health Care Center nursing home resident, put Missoula police on a path of looking at all small clues to help them solve the crime.

There, another clue to the case would be found six-feet-under-- a second murder victim by the name of Bertha E. Scott.

The Montana Content I Need
I am obsessed with MMM because I had NO idea about most of these cases.... and had no idea there were so many in Montana! I love the digging that they do in these small communities to bring the stories to life. Can’t wait for season 3.
Plagiarized off Reddit. LAZY
I loved listening to this podcast... then I ran across a 4 year old reddit post on the Riverside Rape and Murders. As I read the post I thought it sounded strangely familiar, about paragraph 3 of the post it hit me. It was familiar because I HAD JUST LISTENED TO IT THAT AFTERNOON ON THIS PODCAST. I’m not one to call out plagiarism, so I listened again with the post up on my screen. Yep exactly the same.
I’m disgusted that an investigation podcast that just won an award can’t be bothered to write its own summaries. Do it yourself, give better credit or don’t bother.
Interesting, Creepy, Compelling
