The more I researched…
The more I found myself questioning a lot of things about the cases of Katherine M Seeber. I started out thinking how horrible this young lady was and ended up feeling like she was done a huge injustice. She is in no way innocent but deserved to be treated better than she was in the end.
This story is deep, a lot of crime happened between the main players in this story. The twist will keep shocked and surprise. Click below to listen or listen on Stitcher, Spotify, and/or Google Podcast.

I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL.
THIS PODCAST IS WRITTEN PRODUCED AND EDITED BY ME.
IT IS MY OPINION
This is part one of the Marybeth Tinning story.
This is a very heavy story to listen to. It is about the deaths of eight very small children. If you can’t handle that type of thing … skip this episode.
My name is Leona I am a 40 year old married of mother two. I was born and raised in New York. I am as you may guys notice, obsessed with true crime. I have a twin and several friends who are also obsessed with true crime so you may hear a few guest from time to time.
Talk at ya later!
Unfortunately there is no update, District Attorney Sandra Doorley does not believe the case can be solved. Hundreds of people are left without answers. Ten people lost their lives and thirty four were injured, none of them will get justice.
After three months (SO SORRY IT TOOK SO LONG) Part Two
Look forward to an episode a month from now on!
