If Paul didn't do it why in the hell would his lawyer go to the Smart's lawyer with a deal and then pull it off the table?

I know people have a right to a lawyer but I have no clue how some of these defense attorneys can live with themselves.

Pleading the 5th on simple questions tells me this POS did it. Too bad the investigation was bungled from the beginning or else they could have proved it earlier and recovered her body.

What the hell difference does it make what music was playing at the party? How is it relevant to her disappearance? This Trevor dude just wants his 15 minutes of fame and is in love with the sound of his own voice.

oh my God how many settlements could your son have had against him when he was in the 8th grade like come on Ruben makes me want to punch him in the junk. Like oh my God how are you this dance I would rather you not answer them for you to fake like you're this naive and stupid when it's like okay. You're lying and I want to declare you a hostile witness if this wasn't just a deposition

they sound like Chris Watts psycho mom and dad who still believe their son is innocent even though he clearly said he strangled shanann suffocated the girls and put their bodies in the oil drum where he worked there like no not our son. Yes your son is an evil monster and deserves to be punished everyday for the rest of his life just like these people son is a psycho POS and if they would have got him help then maybe Kristen would be alive today. I'm sorry but I know parents love their children but I would never help my children dispose of a body and cover it up for all these years knowing that he could have been doing it more and more for the past 25 years. but then again my daughters are normal and would not kill people so there's that

so it sounded pretty clear then and now who did it too bad the punk got 25 years to live a normal life and no one seemed to do anything about it when they had every opportunity to do a more thorough search since the cadaver dog hit on his room for different dogs cops are truly not the brightest sometimes.

if only the cop had worked as hard as Chris has for this podcast maybe the POS that killed Kristen wouldn't have got 23 years to live his life and hurt how many other women during that time. That's what pisses me off about cops they don't investigate properly they don't think about what's happening because they don't follow up and do their due diligence other women get raped and murdered because rapist rarely ever not rape people they usually do it again and again and again until they're caught and stopped especially for people who have a prior history of being creeps

I would just love for cops to tell me one instance just one where a person has left all of their belongings behind just to escape and go start a new life somewhere else without ever using their money their license there whatever they just vanished I want to know one time that that wasn't a murder or a kidnapping please enlighten me. because every single time cops think that way oh way oh she left her phone while I know this was in the 90s but she left her phone and her wallet and her ID and her clothing and everything and just vanished oh she's just going to run away and she just didn't want to be held down by this responsibility anymore so she probably just went away to start a new life like that rarely is the case. People usually take their money their car their phone wallet whatever maybe they discard them on their way out of the country or something but they don't just leave everything on their bed or a bed and they were going to a party and her friend left to go one way back home and she left to go another so how was she going to get out of town and why would she have taken her friends keys to her dorm to escape cops just want to get out of doing their work we know that to be true. Just like it's a suicide oh she stabbed herself 22 x in the next yes you did it herself case closed the door was locked from the inside there's no signs of forced entry and the husband said he was at the gym I mean we didn't verify that or anyting but I mean that's what he said why would her husband lie. Cops get on my damn nerves I'm sorry but they just really don't show themselves to have enough common sense. Detectives that's a little different but I'm talking about the cops that show up when you call 911 not the brightest just going to say

And the CalPoly administration offering a freaking memorial bench they can remove whenever for whatever reason. What a bunch of cowards. No dignity. Just want to distance themselves from the crime. What about doing the right thing? Ugh so frustrating!

The part of the deposition about the trucks is very interesting. Ruben can't keep his lies straight. Then he says there was a settlement, but then doesn't know what civil action or judgements mean? What a joke!!

I kinda wish that the previous police department were as quick to act on the missing person, as they were in responding to Susans complaints of people hasseling her.

Can't stop binging. I have been up all night long. Tremendous work, Chris. I so appreciate your respect for the Smart family. I am from Central Georgia and am a personal friend of Tara Grinstead's sister. I will NEVER forgive the farcical circus that Payne Lindsey turned their lives, the lives of the town of Ocilla, and the self-aggrandizement he promoted on Tara's life and death. He did not solve that case. He falsely accused innocent people, speculated on gossip, and used ZERO journalistic, investigative, nor even HUMAN integrity. THANK YOU for not taking a single page from his book. You are the complete opposite and I personally thank you. Btw...best theme song intro/outro EVER! Any way we could hear the full recording?

I wonder if the makers of this would be interested in my story? Google Donna Macho / New Jersey. She is my sister. I'd love to tell our story.
