It is a shame that we have to wait until the last half of the next last episode to really dive in Jenny's background

roger vo just imagine for a sec if John Elway was murdered in similar circumstances. OMG! Denver would shut the whole fucking city down. there would be a "find John's killer" task force within the Denver PD.

no one in this area believed the murder/suicide story but Nashville Metro PD was so matter-of-fact about it. Thank you for this podcast!

This is my exact thought about Jenny. Did they do a GSR test on her to confirm she in fact did shoot the gun ? Also with Two shots to each temple was the same gun used? did they check the bullestics. These two questions make or break the Murder-suicide theory.

they didn't check Jenny or the ex boyfriend for gun powder residue to see if they shot gun recently?
