Justice

My heart aches for Nona and all the pain she endured in her life. A father who was a predator, a mother who chose a man who wouldn’t allow this girl to have her animals and was so controlling that she had no choice but to move out. A murderer who was a known predator and a detective whose ego was more important than the truth.

Murder in Apt 12

Thank you for telling this story. So scary that Detective Frost is still a working officer. This is totally a show of some should not be in law enforcement. Shame on all that allowed him to proceed with this career. Just goes to show everyone you have to keep the fight!!

FRUSTRATED

It’s a good story and told well, but I’m still not finished because the way these cops are trying to railroad this poor kid is so frustrating I had to take a break!!!!
