Excellent podcast. I've seen the TV stuff about this case but know more now. Narrator is a tad monotone and more narration would be nice amongst all the interviews, but overall a compelling, well researched story that needed to be told. I don't believe for one minute he committed suicide. Hope justice comes to these two even if it takes years.
