She Says: Return To The Scene Of The Crime
In episode 2, we go back to the crime scene, which in this case is the body.
She Says: It's Not Him*
In episode 3, Linda goes down to Charlotte Mecklenburg Police headquarters to talk to detectives about her case. It’s a particularly emotional conversation because she learns about the DNA results from her sexual assault kit. They aren’t what she expected.
She Says: Whiplash
In episode 4, we dive into what happened with the mysterious DNA sample that matches the one found in Linda’s sexual assault kit, and why detectives didn’t know about it for months. Linda expresses her concern that her questioning of police will lead to her case being ignored.
Always want more
One of the best true crime series I’ve ever listened to. I desperately want a new season!!
Astounding story needs to be shared around the world
This is a story that I could not stop listening to because it tells the story of every woman- each of us has lived through rape culture. This is a “go-to” share to help people “get” what it’s like to live in America as a woman- we are still fighting to be recognized as citizens, fighting for the equal rights amendment to make discrimination illegal, we are paid less, harassed and assaulted in the daily. The strength shown by this woman’s story is beyond belief. I’m so proud of her and it gives me strength to keep supporting all the women and LGBTQ folks I know who have been raped, assaulted, and emotionally abused by cis men. THANK YOU.
Are we sure that Melanie Peacock isn’t actually Sarah Huckabee Sanders? Omg they sound just alike and appears to gaslight just as much. Love this podcast.
