awesome job team! I lived for the last 20 years in Studio City near Vineland and Ventura. recently moved to the Midwest. I heard about The Long Shot but could not bring myself to watch it after Making a Murderer. those just stess me out. so I knew nothing of this poor guy Juan Catalan. crazy story. it sucks poor Maria died, for nothing but her mom sounds like a loony / a hole. those detectives were really jerky. they give good cops bad names. on a side note. anonymous convinced me to do a trial on noom. if I like it I'll stick w it. I used the code and mentioned Casefile. I tried something similar last year but it wasn't what I was looking for. let's see if this one works better. I'm sure I'd be a loony too if my kid was shot.

$1 how insulting. The cops are not infallible, they should be held accountable. How crooked...

The police did a stand up job of protecting an important witness who was clearly forced to give evidence! Poor Martha :(

The suspect wanted to take a polygraph -- and the cops refused to allow it? FRAMEUP!

There is a documentary on Netflix about this case called "Long Shot".
