Professional

There isn’t a lot there about this case, but this show is respectful and thorough as it traces what we do know. No lurid, tabloid-style trash here; this is a thoughtful victim-focused show, the way it should be done.

*****

Thoughtful, compelling storytelling.

Sir Nicealot ,

Dramatic, insightful

Great Mix of a murder mystery with larger questions about how people spin their own tales to fill the blank spots.
