Galesburg isn't across from the KY state line. It's located in NW IL closer to the IA border. just FYI on this location.

If something is dismissed with prejudice it means that the decision is final and cannot be brought again.

Is it possible that she was doing hallucinogens instead of drinking or smoking when she said she was "so F'd up" but "she didn't sound drunk"? Those things can make you trip out. She could have crawled into the sewer to get away from something she was hallucinating.

Referring to truck convoy episode, a lot of facts are wrong. Go Fund Me largest donations before this was Humboldt tragedy. There are thousands of trucks but media wont allow anything truthful that is positive. Truckers are complying and police are actually delivering hot food to them and saying good things. They are peaceful and its the few ppl not involved wih the convoy making trouble. If you are basing this podcast off of ctv news or any other main news story yous are being fooled. These are all blue collar workers supporting a cause and have been made out to look like something different. I'm not for or against it but its disgusting how main stream media is portraying this. I live 1 hr outside ottawa and there has been minimal problems and so much love. The unity is unbelievable. Did you hear about them playing street hockey? Did you see the pics of them laying flowers at the statues? Cleaning the monuments? Of course not, just that some idDid you hear about them having peace

I find that a podcast so annoying it just drags on and on. Hosts go and talk to the two main suspects JD & Chris and and don't even ask them Why they were accused & why they thought each other did it????!!! then they bang on for another a whole episode just throwing up ideas? You interviewed them both? why didn't you ask them why they thought each other did it?? They must've had a problem with her

okay I am listening to this in 2021 and I Googled it and see that someone was arrested and confessed in April of 2021. Justice is going to get you some kind of way whether you least expect it or not. she was so pretty and had such a bright future ahead of her it's really sad as a mom I can't even imagine the pain her parents have felt all these years not knowing what happened to her way back in 2004 then to find out now what happened and how horribly horrific it was.
