Nurse Natasha ,

A lot of potential!

I think those two young ladies have done a pretty good job, and I can see them honing their skills and getting better and better.
The story was new to me, and what a travesty! An example of the police and the prosecutors wanting to close a case, but not necessarily caring about what the truth was.

Great Podcast

I grew up 8 miles from the Dowaliby residence. I was the same age as Jacqueline before she passed away. I always wondered why the passion for this story died after the dowaliby’s were acquitted. The midlo police has done nothing since the acquittal and are convinced that the parents committed the crime. It’s crazy because all the evidence shows that it was an intruder. I am hoping this podcast will shed more light on this case. What really scares me is that I am father of 6 year old and I still live in the area. I don't believe that the person is still out there but the type of person is lurking and you never know when it will strike. There is reason that my daughter sleeps on the 2nd floor...I have an alarm system and the windows are always locked.
