Joe Scott, I read the cliff notes with all the serious info, then see it takes less than 27 minutes, including chit chat and commercials. Why listen to what could have been intriguing yet instead was a fast whip. How can you give this story substance in 20ish minutes?

what I like about this podcast is it's not sensational and so far I haven't heard any vulgarities and profanities which I like. I have actually unfollowed other podcasts because of the language they use and also too much sensationalism. so keep up the good work

I think it was a hit job. Also, could "someone" have slipped her the fentanyl that morning to make the abduction a little easier? Would explain why it had metabolized. Could also explain why he waited before grabbing her. It just seems staged to look like a random abduction to me. This guy knows more. I'm convinced,so far, that he was hired.

Please fix the title if you can - it's Tylee not Tyler. Normally I wouldn't nitpick but it's one of the victims names that is misspelled.

Please tell me how he got in the bag with no pants on?…… If he didn’t want to get undressed in front of others, why would he get in the bag in his underwear? Makes no sense. Where are his “other “ pants? One of those other kids did this. Sounds like all of those kids were in on it. So are these items in evidence? I believe I would have looked into this before I recorded this episode. Please do more in depth research and please record a new episode. Thank You.

I am so very sorry for the family's loss. I am not at all in any way remotely close to a professional in this area. I just have to speak out and question this one!! I believe the first call that her death was a homicide was the correct one. I thought that it was so extraordinarily difficult to change the manner of death on an autopsy report? How can that office just erase that first determination and update that? Liars & lazy politics? Her body is speaking the truth! Also, did police do a search to see if there was access to an attic area that is wide open with the ability to access all of the apartments through a door in their ceiling somewhere? A perpetrator could watch that fiance go, then either go knock on her door and she let's him/her in or drop down into the apartment by attic & get a quick upper hand and commit that horrific murder. They are able to ensure all locks are engaged and just climb up & crawl back into the apartment they started from. Any small thefts happen latel

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ While I certainly would not do well in your type of jobs, I find they are so very important, literally vital to have this knowledge. You do give the victims their very last voice and let them show as most they can as to what happened to them. I give you all the accolades at what you do as you listen with what the victim's remains can say to catch the evil person that did that to them! OR Possibly find what they have chosen for themselves is their own last place of paradise on this earth to move on in their journey. Unfortunately/fortunately, your profession has shown me and my family too many times personally in my life what truly happened to my own loved ones. Thank you from my heart for what you do.

Wow... Interesting statistical info from JSM. For every 1 homicide - 3 suicides are committed. Dayum!!

this podcast gives some good insight on how the criminal justice and forensics work. it’s very in depth of its information but otherwise good. I’m wondering if you have any more information on the gabby and Libby case in Delphi. my heart goes out to them ans their families. I don’t care so much about what they went through obviously but I hope there is more information on if the perp was caught.

This podcast is ghoulish and unpleasant. I don't care to know how to stuff a child into an 8 inch opening. it's enough of a horror this father killed his child. The episode about watts killing his family was too graphic. I'm done with Body Bags.
