I read a book called '3 little words', written by a woman who had been in foster care for years. She stayed at Barbara Bass' compound, I remembered that because of the ways Bass abused the children. There were barns like barracks behind her house, where the kids slept. Vicious, abusive woman with a milquetoast husband. And so many victims.

This woman is ridiculous. Of course they ignored her input. She has no idea how fast and how many ways someone can be killed. There are a lot of very unwell people alive and dead. Majority of the time it’s a scorned lover that commits the murder. What a goofy woman to be so oblivious.

How do you even know that “investigator” isn’t Cathy ? 🤣 all she’s doing is repeating herself over and over. Not at all believable. She sits there saying she can’t give details then blurts out her suspects name for no good reason. Wouldn’t a credible investigator ask the person they work for if they can do that? Sketchy.

it's like no one learned a lesson from the horse shit that was "Michelle Remembers." Education is sorely lacking.

The story is going to have it's more calming (boring moments) but the point also to be made here is that Kelly's disappearance be announced to the world. Considering this was the early 90's and apart of the Devil worshiping, cult uproar and no one has really made noise enough for Kelly. I absolutely love this story, yes I found it hard to catch onto at first but I now know the story on Kelly and I hope her case is solved. much is deserved for her family. I know I would want that for my children.

Thank you for exposing this travesty. The Devil sure did come to Gilmer, came in the form of Scott Lifeard and his crew.

Nothing wild or crazy about this story. It's rather boring and I lost interest after ep 2.
