It's really sad that the Father of Sarah and his daughter laugh during their interview. He's raising his daughter to have to respect. I wouldn't trust a thing either had to say.

Even though I know the title I always think she's saying Helen gone for just a moment... Everytime. Lol

It's a fact that she was murdered by someone at the party so doing a 3rd autopsy is a moot point.

I tried listening to this and I have to say, it's awful. Stop trying to force a full story when this is at best a two episode story.
