This case is a tough one to call, for sure. I know that it is very possible that he was abusive- cops abuse their partners just the same as anyone else. [Actually have known, personally, an officer who was abusive to his girlfriend.] It's actually sad, because it does seem to be easier for them to deny, and get away with. It is sad, too, because of the "Brotherhood" surrounding them because of their employment, and we truly want to be able to trust those that are assigned to protect us. It's so often an unseen or unaddressed problem and issue. (Whether their actual guilt is something seen, or truly an unseen and unknown issue.) I can only (personally) encourage anyone who is in an abusive relationship to find a way to get out- there are many places willing to help the abused to escape their abuser. I urge anyone, in any abusive relationship, to reach out for help. Don't wait. They will not change for the better. As a matter of fact, the only way an abuser changes, is by changing their actions for the worse. You are worthy of something better! Although (at least in this particular instance) it is very difficult for me to have an opinion on whether or not he is guilty, or not guilty, I do hope that if he is guilty, they are able to come up with the proof they need to prove it and get a conviction. One thing that I did want to point out: After listening to you talk about the fact that she held the gun in her left hand when/if she took her own life... Actually it is not uncommon to hold the gun in your left hand, when you are a right-handed person. I actually shoot with my left hand, and I am right handed. I would never hold the gun in my right hand, for any reason, while shooting. It feels... off. Even if I were to aim the gun at myself, the gun would be in my left hand. I just thought I would share that bit of information. I don't know if it makes any difference, but it may help in understanding at least that bit of information, while weighing out case facts. Thanks so much for your research, and gathering up all the latest in so many cases. Fantastic podcast- truly my favorite!

I...cannot understand the intense trolling in the comments. Just don't listen, if you don't like it. Wowdang. I personally love the casual conversation in the middle. Brit is too sweet for y'all to be so hard. She's just encouraging more questions and perspective.

"Her death was ruled a suicide. [...] Her boyfriend was a deputy." Sounds about 40% sus.

i would have felt better if you guys discussed more of how they clear the Rosy girl. did they check her phone records, where she said she stayed that night etc. But none of this was discussed because she would have held the key if she had something to do with it.
