I don't think she was afraid of anything except losing him to jail or other women.She wasn't too afraid to go party across the border all the time.She doesn't want to turn him in now because that might disrupt her family life she has now.She was and is still selfish.Her first thought and concern should have been the person that was hit.Him and his family.She wasn't part of hitting him. It's not really her secret.She is guilty of protecting her ex.That is the secret I hear.Do the right thing and turn him in.Why is she protecting him? Maybe her now husband should be asking her that.

wow! talk about being stuck between a rock and hard place. i see both sides between telling and not telling. what is mexicos statute of limitations? would she get in trouble for not coming forward then? is it worth it? i wonder if efrain os haunted by it still? and i agree ben how did nobody go report it if so many people knew? thats insane. i hope she can find peace with it and understand she has nothing to do with it and shouldnt feel guilty. he has to live with it.

Here's my best guess: Ryan Reynolds "Big films, genuinely nice, wife and children. Bad boy, sweetheart, sex icon and action star. Activist. Very different person than his public persona." Timeline fits: Podcast aired 2018, Sophie is 10 years Married in 2008, again in 2010 Kids in 2014, 2016, 2019

i had an uncle hang himself in jail. he was a life long drug addict. this point in his life he was in a dark place. his parents died while he was in jail both times. my mother had died while in prison that time. his older brother died while he was yet again in prison. he was 12 yrs older than me. when my sister called me to tell me it was like a dream. when i hung up the phone i let out this scream or groan and just collapsed in my husbands arms. it was a hard one to get over growing up with him and seeing his life first hand. very sad.
