I think, regardless of whether or not Billy was involved in the actual rape and murder of his daughter, he utterly failed his children. It doesn't sound like it was mentioned in this episode, but this man and his wife were investigated several times by DHS for child neglect (lack of toilets in the home, feces laying around the house, maggots and cockroaches crawling out of their belongings). At the end of the day, in one way or another, he most definitely played a role in her death. I mean come on, it wasn't bad enough that his daughter(s) were living in squalor, but he couldn't even make sure that there were locks on the door? Those poor children.

I am so emotionally confused after this episode. Obviously I'm very sad for Amanda and the pain and fear she must've been through. I'm very sad for her sisters because they lost so much, pretty much their whole family, with the death of Amanda. I'm also so sad that their father felt he had no choice but to confess. I'm also angry that their dad didn't fight harder from the start to find the truth, trying to blame it on her being a violent sleeper. As a parent I can't imagine not wanting to find the truth right away, but I also can't imagine walking in to a scene like that and my mind taking over and protecting my emotions by saying my child couldn't have been killed and hurt so brutally while I slept up the hall. With that last statement being said, I have had to face my child being sexually abused by his father during a summer visit after our divorce. it happened 3 years ago, I found out 2.5 years ago and filed charges right then. It took another victim coming forward before the case went anywhere, but I never gave up. Now he's been indicted and puts in a plea on July 9th. The justice system can move very slowly, but I can't imagine not fighting for the truth and justice for my child from day 1. I'm not sure if I can feel sorry for the dad, even if it was a wrongful conviction, because he felt such guilt about something and his other daughters felt unprotected by him for a reason.

The federal government needs to create some more laws that police HAVE to follow. EVERYTHING should be recorded, whether they're always wearing body cams that can't be turned off or recorders are constantly running in interrogation rooms, if they wanna use statements from defendants, it should be recorded because they lie, too often, about people not wanting a lawyer & other bs. Also, there needs to be a law against them asking people "how they would do it" because people feel like they have to answer the question but no matter the answer, police use it against them. & this is less to do with investigations & more to do with police, in general but cops shouldn't be able to use the excuse that "they panicked," anytime they shoot someone. If citizens have to remain calm & do everything they're told, perfectly, with a gun in their face, then trained officers shouldn't be able to use the excuse of panicking. We literally hold average, every day people to higher standards than cops, in situations that cops actually train for. It's ridiculous.

Nice closure and effort by Sgt Carter. Also thanks for the suggestion for 'True Crime Story Time.' They have become another favorite.

I totally believe this guy is innocent that 911 call sounded to me very legit I mean if he's guilty of anything then that 911 call deserves an Oscar from an award winning in distress performance

I need to start taking Ashley's advice and not listening to these murders of children. Literally heartwrenching. I think I'm trying to somehow understand how ppl...not ppl...monsters can dl this to children, let alone adults. I need to just make myself realize I will never understand this. Denise's mother must have felt such guilt (or still does) because I would never have forgiven myself for that. Not saying she would've known what was to come. Why if there was a convict loose did they even go to this area to camp? I haven't finished the story yet. I just feel so saddened and angry by what I am hearing. I have a 3 year old that is my world so this makes me feel like nothing is ever sacred or safe.😣😭😟

Why wouldn’t he pull the mat down and unroll it for his shoes? I think he was beaten unconscious by someone and then put into the Mat, and that’s why he didn’t cry out.
