listening to all these women describing similar stories is sending ice down my spine. if women were taken more serious those kind of men would not be enabled to get away with murder and rape. I'm fuming. it takes 5 years for his DNA to be linked and him saying: "oh I don't remember" and that's it?

These police didn't not do there job ever and this is another story where police once again failed. They could have solved this 20 years ago if they did their job even a day on their life.

I binge listened to this series today. This is probably why I thought I saw Paul Flores at DMV today. Looks, manner of speech. LOL
