Had to stop listening to this one when they went off on the alien book tangent. Did that get edited in from another episode perhaps?? I wasn't that interested in the original case anyway so I suppose it doesn't matter either way.

From Utah, born and raised. There are so many stories of Skinwalker Ranch. I know people that refuse to go near it. It will always be a mystery. Also, I commend you on pronouncing so many Utah town names correctly, such as Duchesne. 😆 Missed a few, but you've done better than most!

This case is haunting me. I don't understand why a full autopsy wasn't conducted when a 38 year old is found dead at home and thats without the insane amount of blood found inside. Are there different rules in the US ?? Here in the UK anyone found deceased at home must undergo an autopsy to confirm cause of death.
