The Doorstep Murder

I enjoyed the story especially the the attention to the multiple lines of inquiry considered by the law enforcement officials. I did not appreciate the flippant attitude expressed towards firearms ownership in the U.S.A. The presenter implied that a handgun can be purchased off the internet with no background check. While a handgun can be found and purchased, the transfer to the new owner has to be conducted by the holder of a Federal Firearms Agent after the successful completion of a full background check.

Heartbreaking story

Fiona Walker’s voice and storytelling is incredible. I wish she would do more podcasts. BBC please make that happen. This story breaks my heart and I’m so sorry for Veronica and family that they have no answers still. I hope one day they’ll have a resolution to this case.

Enjoyed it

I throughly enjoyed this podcast. It’s sad that it’s been a cold case for over 10 years with no suspects or hardly any leads at all. I do think it was well sought out and produced, etc.
