Everything about this case stinks. I can tell you all with 100% certainty that this man did not make a mil a year "gambling." Most likely he was buying guns in the states and selling them across the border. Las Vegas is a major hub for coke and meth import and distribution from south america. It is common in that world to do deals during and around major events in order to blend in with the crowd. l would be willing to bet the weapons he had were just the most recent haul that he had amassed for sale. photos of the room show the weapons laid out as if for sale, not ready to be deployed. A man with firearm experience would not have brought so many. He would have brought a few reliable systems that he was familiar with and much more ammunition. I also find it strange how "matter-of-fact" the authorities are about what happened considering the lack of evidence. Im rambling now but anyone who has exp in that world will know that gambling is a prime way to wash dirty money, another reason why Vegas is part of the drug highway... too many questions here for just a guy that "snapped."

I am really confused at the music selection in this episode. Such happy, upbeat choices for solemn moments. Still love the podcast, but found it a bit offputting.

I am loving this podcast!! I was so heartbroken when sword and scale semi-ended,which was the all time best podcast that I’ve heard 😔. I am happy to have finally found after much looking something somewhat similar. Keep up the good work👏

it's so heart breaking to hear that little girl talking to the 911 operator. When she said she just wanted her blanket and pillow, I just locked up. I just thought about my little girl.

I live in Perth and Jemma's dad was on TV a couple of weeks ago saying she would never murder anyone and she has nothing to do with the crime. Delusional. They are scum.

Listening to David Carroll's version of events made me a little angry. There is no sincerity in his voice. He is an absolute disgusting human being. Each one of them are utterly disgusting.
