I'm wondering if he gave the police a reason to shot him? Did they see the gun? Why wouldn't they just say what happened?

My family will keep Matthew and his family in our prayers. Although I live no where near California I will share this episode with friends and family just so they can look through aerial photos. Thank you for sharing and I pray for your families closure in this horrific tragedy

The more I listen the more this makes me laugh out loud. What a train wreck...from these characters to the ineptitude of the investigators.

Oh this b!tch wants to answer the phone now!! Sobbing her way to clear her frickin name. ger and the lawyer (d class acting)!! If Chris would have been bought in and treated like they treat people of less opportunities of legal assistance, her senseless death could have been prevented!!

What if all three were in the Dad's house and the Dad hit Adea and killed her with a blunt object, and then told his son that he was already implicated and guilty, and if he the Dad falls, he will take the son with him. It's possible that the Dad did the deed.

This makes me realize just how crazy the people in America are. Chris's fiancee literally thought he was a good guy 🙄His friend, thought he was amazing, we all know he got himself into a very deceptive situation and continued to carry it out. His dad is a dirtbag, he clearly picked some crazy women. All I want to do is live a quiet life in a quiet area and make art. The US should just be rebranded as the looney bin of the world.

Great listen, but I was disappointed that MOTIVE was never really discussed. If this was a planned and premeditated act...Why? Toxic love does not lead to such a seemingly calculated act. Did the victim hold some kind of damaging information over Spotz? What was the MOTIVE????
