Sad and Frustrating

The daughter of oblivious parents’ kills herself and the cops respond with horrific negligence.

Great podcaster does a great job with what he has, but the parents’ willful ignorance/denial make this poor girls’ story incredibly difficult to listen to. They seem to be completely oblivious to the realities of their children’s lives, despite teenage pregnancies and talks of suicide.

The police leave a teenage girl hanging in a tree for most of a day and no one is held responsible. Eden had trusted a teenage boy with nude pictures, which he shows to most of the small town. She’s distraught but not taken seriously. Who is he? Who knows. No one seems to care about her fear, humiliation and broken trust after these very private images are shared without her consent. Is revenge porn not a crime in Australia? Maybe someone helped her kill herself - maybe she was adrenaline driven in despair and killed herself? Maybe there’s a suicide pact? It’s a good listen.
