Mark had been a student at a high school close to mine and being this happened close to Texas, it stunned so many of our surrounding communities. spring break was never the same for us.

I love that this is obviously what Nicholas Winding Refn based his Amazon series Too Old To Die Young off of. I'm so upset that Amazon didn't renew the series. Always great to see what he is inspired by. Tanks for including this in Casefile. X

I tried to listen to Morbid but it felt so wrong to listen to them giggling through the GSK case after hearing how it affected the victims in Man in the Window.

Oh my goodness, this one was hard to get through. I remember when this happened, and living in South Texas, I always thought I'd read that he was blindfolded and killed before he knew what hit him, but not so. Unbelievable, the horrors he endured. But what a legacy, and how many more locals would have soon died without his involvement. He saved (at least) dozens more men,women and children. Wow, really well done, smart, excellent narrative. Casefile is the bomb.
