I live in McHenry County. AJ's story is so heartbreaking. You can still see some of the blue ribbons that were put up when we were trying to find him. What absolute monsters.

Get your facts straight. On December 7, 1941 2,403 service members were KILLED and 1,178 were wounded. It's amazing that Mike was able to find someone else who is as much of a dick as he is to host the daily podcast. #SNAFU

The boys who murdered Cassie Jo Stoddard in 2006 should have been sentenced to death and put to death when they became adults. There is no reason to keep monsters alive.
