What sad story that can, but just won’t, end

I was right back in San Luis Obispo, visualizing so many of the locations, and picturing what must have been. The buried under the PAC was the greatest theory (of your 18-22 year old untrained investigators) back then. This sad story just won’t end for the Smart family. Yes, there is a lot of what we see to be circumstantial evidence, but man o day, what one solid interview could reveal. This is a must listen, and though we don’t have confirmation, there’s only one way this story can ever conclude.

Very very good

Great coverage, being fascinated by true crime myself, I’m disappointed to find out I had not realized Kristin smart was not Elizabeth smart, is confused the two, great to know this case is still progressing, hoping for justice for her and her family

Murder and a Tragedy

Thank you for shedding light on Kristin Smart’s story. This is one of the worst accounts of law enforcement mishandling an investigation I’ve ever heard. Real investigative journalism is a dying art, Chris Lambert is one of the few. My heart breaks for the Smart family. Keep telling Kristin’s story. In the absence of justice, hold those accountable by telling the truth to as many people as possible.
