The Everyday Bombshell

The police never questioned Crystal 20 years before, and also "overlooked" Pam's response to the lie detector test, which was definitely a different response than she'd given to the officers when asked if she was with Ryan the night of the murders. It seems to me that once her response during the lie detector test differed from her story when she was being questioned, that should have immediately thrown Ryan's alibi into question, and he should have been further investigated which would have brought up Crystal, and with the whole disgusting incest issue weighing freshly on her mind, this crime could have been solved decades ago. Those two women certainly could have moved things forward 20 years earlier. But those police officers were truly either ineffective or just plain stupid. How do you miss a witness changing their story during the lie detector test?!

If I ever unravel and the lines between reality and podcast become blurred, I feel pretty confident that my parents and sisters would promptly give me up!!! They're better people than I am. Probably everyone would think that it "was bound to happen"... And they might be correct to think so... but who can really tell... it's a confluence of events. However... if the pattern repeats....

Referring to anyone involved in this case as a "Mastermind" is exceptionally generous. I suspect police officers involved had to repeat their academy training, as they have dropped a few IQ points since taking on the case.

How the hell does a repeat offender get only 18 months sentence for multiple sexual assaults against minors? And even after adding a murder and arson, which btw should count as attempted murder too, he still has a chance at parole? REALLY???

Did anyone else get the feeling that her brother may have abused her in the past and that contributed to her psychological problems. Then he killed her because he was afraid she would talk? He certainly seems the type.

Why were the people who lived behind them ruled out? Because someone they knew you used to live there? That's the reason for still watching the house while the workers were there? Dumb reason. Turn around indeed...

i guarantee you that had I been her mom, and had he told me "Im glad she is dead"...he would be in PIECES when the police came. In teeny, tiny pieces. I'd keep two little pieces...mail one to his mom (hey he was under her supervision, remember? She accepted that responsibility.) and keep another for myself as a reminder that I ended him. PS, I know I have issues. Its only a worry if you mess with me and mine. If you don't, you are perfectly safe.

How narcissistic do you have to be to worry about how someone's murder is going to affect how *you* look? The man was murdered by racist scum and people are more concerned about how their town looks.

The judge who allowed bail when such a dangerous threat still existed, should do prison time.
