Fantastic podcast, great storytelling and done with purpose. I've listened to a lot of true crime podcasts and this one was like a book I can't put down. An excellent addition having online materials to view and encourage interaction from listeners. Hopefully there will be more updates on the case in the near future.

Has Roxanne received any recognition for going above and beyond, here? She really should be commended for continuing to follow her nose even after being told to make her reports "less detailed" (I'm sure that's not the only criticism she received from her colleagues throughout her career)

This is one of the best true crime podcasts I have ever listened to. The research and the way it was delivered through the podcast was more than top notch.

When is the movie based on this podcast coming out? What an incredible story! No screenwriter could make this up. Even though the story is horrific, the storytelling is excellent. Thank you!
