It's been a few hours since I listened to this episode and I keep thinking about the lawyer's story. I wish we knew what he wanted to pass along.

What a great podcast! My family originated from Mexico, became Citizens and had always warned us of the police corruption in Mexico. They begged us to stay away from Mexico, altogether. It was a Big Risk esp., the border towns. So, with police involvement in this tragedy, it comes to no surprise. My deepest condolences to the families and I pray for Justice for them, Mexico & the USA.

I have heard of these murders for several years. To me it wasn't that they were forgotten, they were ignored. I hope these women will finally find justice.
