Great podcast! More please.

My prayers go out to the Sawyer family. I remember watching this story on Dateline. What a senseless murder. You did a great job in putting the story together, I really enjoyed it. May she Rest In Peace.

So sad but needs to be heard

I came across this podcast and listened to it all in one day. It’s so very sad and gut wrenching, but Kaylees story must be heard. I’m so sorry this happened to her and the other victims. I pray for her family and loved ones to someday find peace and Gods grace. Maybe not to forgive what the killer did, but to find peace.
