    The Disappearance of Leona Kinsey: Carolyn DeFord, Part 2

    Leona Kinsey disappeared on October 25, 1999; her daughter Carolyn has both searched for answers in her mother’s cold case—and has pondered what she’ll do if she finds what she seeks. Now an adult and an activist for MMIGW, and all missing and murdered Indigenous people through her Facebook group Missing and Murdered Native Americans, Carolyn continues the story of her young adulthood, and recounts the experience of hearing of her mother’s disappearance from a state away.

I love The Fall Line

I love how the Fall Line shows so much genuine respect and empathy to the victims and their families. With each episode we learn about the victims through the family members and friends while other podcasters talk more about the perpetrator. I have much respect for all the hard work they put into each episode 💕

You’re not a hero

I avidly listen to crime podcasts and this one just like a 100 more will constantly tell you how certain crimes are not covered by media and they’re different because they’re telling their stories. I care about all crime regardless of someone’s color or socioeconomic background, like most people. It’s not the masses fault that the media only reported on the Elizabeth Smarts of this world. God liberals are insufferable, oh look at me being a good person, puke

Laborious

It may be well-researched, but I lasted only about 5 minutes before I was ready to quit. So much quoting from dry police documentation.
