Brutal story. Classic stupid murderer. The mistakes would be funny if it wasn't just so pathetic and a sad waste of a beautiful woman's life.

You are really stretching some of these episodes to fit into the title Red Collar. Kathleen didn't threaten to expose his fraud, so how does,this fit into a Red Collar murder?

Her murder isn't unsolved, just the person who did it got acquitted by a dumb jury.

I must say, I never imagined that anyone could tell this story with details I'd never heard or considered before. Yet here we are. You've done just that. I didn't think it could get more tragic and yet it did. Good job on your part though.

Please 🙏 change the description of the Parade Underwear ad that plays 12 times during each episode!!!! "I wore the plaid thong for a day of REALLY HARD skiing and they never moved." So cringe-inducing!!!! So off-putting 🤢🤢🤢

I'll never understand men like this. He has a gorgeous, smart wife that stays home raising his five children. His In-laws are basically bankrolling his business. They are probably more concerned with their daughter and grandkids getting taken care of. But it's not enough for him. He thinks he's entitled to have his girlfriend move in with his wife? In what world is that normal. What a loser. He should have just taken his own miserable life and not left his poor children motherless. There's a special place in hell for degenerates like him and Chris Watts 🤢

At the beginning, it skips: "and never came home. Police went to search his hotel room at the Dana Point Marina Inn. They found all of his belongings, including his suitcase and laptop computer, inside the room. His diabetes medication was in the mini fridge. The fire was still burning in the fireplace, and Bob's rented blue PT Cruiser was parked in the parking lot, but there was no sign of Bob. There was also no sign of his business partner, Gary Shockey, the supposed Mastermind of a multi-million dollar government deal..." Please excuse any misspellings!

Hi there - I enjoy your podcast and I really like the stories that you cover. My only constructive criticism is that you seem to rush through the story like you have some sort of time limit. The stories are gripping - why not take your time?
