I remember this story when it happened realtime. I now know the whole story as an adult. God Bless all of the people who were directly effected by this horrible event. What a brave person to come so very far working through the emotional and mental aftermath of her enduring such an event.It is sad and completely without foresight for Newsome to pardon the villains without a thought to the mental and emotional health of survivors of such events.

This is a clear case of domestic abuse. It is not as uncommon as you think for the father to kill his children to hurt their mother.

Just finished this episode, and wow, the FBI agent was so transparent. I have heard several stories about these murders, but this one was deep. It left me praying for him, the victims families, and other LE that carry such burdens. Great job on all your podcasts, Emily. You ask all the right questions, in my opinion. God bless you all.
