On a cold day in March 2010, workers discovered a woman lying unconscious under the MacKay Bridge in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada - barely breathing and clinging to life. It was 31-year-old Holly Bartlett. Police say she walked almost a quarter of a mile from the front door of her condo building, where she crawled through a hole in a barbed wire fence, climbed a 20ft concrete cable abutment, and fell to the frozen ground below. But that theory makes no sense to Holly’s friends and family, who spend the next ten years trying to understand what happened to Holly Bartlett.

I really wish they hadn't sold out. I use to love Monday because that meant a new Crime Junkie. I can't even listen to these two anymore. Ashley's voice is so fake and annoying now. Britt's gasps get on my nerves and are over done. I went back and listened to the first ones again to see if maybe I just grew out of them, and that's not the case. They sold out and ruined their show.

I was just looking through the comments, Jesus! why all the hate? I just enjoy listening to the podcasts. the ads are easy to skip through, I don't find Britt annoying, and to racists in the comments, no one cares if you stop listening

I'm absolutely disgusted by how the salt lake police department have let the tapia family down. They also be brought to justice, what a real shame.

please try to be patient and understanding. Perhaps you don't have children and can't understand how important their safety is. Try a little tenderness.

the thing that killed me in this episode is admitting the police dropped the ball and failed this little girl, then turning around saying if anyone has info, to contact the police in Utah. 🤦‍♀️ maybe the P.I. would be a better contact for the information?

I love all the episodes but this one specially I'm just thinking about all the time. Having 6 kids and just thinking of how hard it must be for the parents, family and the kidnapped is horrible. I love what Elizabeth smart is doing to educate our society.

I know this is a super old episode, but it is jarring to listen to you cover these devastating and unsolved murders as you simultaneously joke about a "murder hotel", which I'm gathering is a low cost and rundown hotel where incidentally a lot of sex workers, especially street sex workers, are forced to work. It kind of just seems like neither of you have any understanding of the weight of these kinds of crimes.

tarasoff law. that makes it mandatory for therapists to report a specific threat to a specific person. I'm not sure if that applies to vague general threats?
