I don't know this girl Shannon and I'm still just hearing her family share their stories about her... But OMG we sound very alike with her love of animals and music. I'm about 20 mins in. If it's any comfort to her family... I know in my heart that if Shannon was still here she would have had one hell of a spirit and achieved great things with her energy. She would have been a real change maker the same way I have grown up to be. Much love to her family, they clearly miss her 😘 Great execution of show, as always... Thank you MoM 🙏🏼

Is this a real person speaking or a computer person? Sounds like my GPS when it doesn't know how to pronounce a word. Toyota Celeeka?!!! Who doesn't know how to say Celica?! Good podcast but weird...

After years of listening to true crime, cold case files, and most every crime podcast I can find... this episode finally did it. I had to pause when I realized there were tears flowing down my cheeks. Heartbreaking.

I feel so bad for all the families of the victims. I feel for the Bird family as well. They too were victimized. In the remembrances for the families I hope they are included. Such a tragedy for all involved.
