Description

For Melissa Moore, 1995 was a nightmare. That’s the year the teenager learned her father, Keith Hunter Jesperson, was a serial killer. It’s also the year Melissa Moore’s doubt spiral began: When you look like your father, and you share his intelligence and charisma, how do you know you’re not a psychopath, too? Happy Face is the story of Keith Hunter Jesperson, his brutal crimes, and the cat and mouse game he played with detectives and the media. But it’s also the story of the horrific legacy he gifted his children. Join Melissa Moore as she investigates her father’s crimes, reckons with the past, and wades through her darkest fears as she hunts for a better future.

The frequent cut to the creepy folk music is annoying.

instead of complaining about how this podcast affects you, consider the narrators story instead of your own. Indeed it takes great courage to expose an emotional hurt. great work about a difficult subject.

I kinda wish Melissa and Don would be together. Like lovers...I guess that would be a Hollywood story then.

Are you trying to get his damn kids taken away? He was fifteen, you've said you had no blame, but you bring it up and say he was violent. Then when he tries to change topics, you drag it out more. That part made me cringe a little.

The first 5-6 episodes were great. Once the victim's son starts trying to get all "deep" with Happy Face's daughter, it gets a little old.

The music is good but sometimes too loud to hear the conversation.

The thing about Melissa that really bothered me is how Don ends up comforting her, it's as if she lays her grief at his feet and he began to almost take responsibility for it. it wouldn't be so bad if I felt that she did the same for him, but I don't feel that it was very reciprocal on her part. Am I the only one that thought that?

Pocket Glitter Wow, I think you're right. Something was irking me about their interactions and I think that might've been part of it. And I could not get over the instance where she made Don describe to her what it was like when he had to see his mother's dead body. It's as if she's continually dragging him through the mud.

THANK YOU Melissa, thank you for being brave enough to face what you had to face through the journey captured in this podcast. I'm sorry you have had any negative feedback, it is very sad (and disgusting) that anyone would want to compound the trauma you have experienced by attacking you for sharing your incredible and horrifying childhood. I marvelled at your strength, and cried listening to your pain, but ultimately was uplifted and thrilled that you found freedom from Keith's lies and emotional hold over you. You are an inspiration and your journey is a gift to all of us who have shame from complicated backgrounds. Way to go Melissa, you should be extremely proud of yourself❤

I wish she would get therapy and get back with her ex. She essentially left him because she didn't believe she could love. that's about the saddest thing I've ever heard. she clearly loves him very much. she just needs to learn how to be vulnerable and let go of her baggage.

Wow! I can't believe some of the comments on here. How is she NOT a victim? Not only were there victims he murdered but the families of those victims became victims. I bet the close friends of those women feel victimized as well. Yet, she doesn't count in your book as a victim of her father. YOU get tfoh with that.

You can immediately feel Melissa release that toxicity and become free. I think she's mentioned every episode at least once about her fear of being like her father. I'm happy she has some peace of mind❤
