Because her wrists were so badly broken, she was able to escape the ties and call for help.

Excellent

The reporter does an excellent job on these cases , bringing the victim to life so we know what they were like. It’s done very respectfully. You can hear the emotion in the reporter’s voice just as much as the family’s. It must be extremely hard to interview them and ask all the pertinent questions. Very well done. I hope these families get the answers they are waiting for.

Suggestion

It would be great if you included the subject’s name in each description. Links to local coverage would be nice too. Still deciding if this is worth following.
