Will you cover the Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins case in Evansdale, Ia? You briefly touch on it when you did the Delphi Indiana case.

I love this podcast, but I can't recommend it anymore! You deleted your seasons that I would most often recommend. Big mistake to do that, put them back, otherwise it's just a convoluted mess of unconnected stories.
