IT IS MY OPINION

 

Marybeth Tinning Part One

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.

I’d like to thank all of the people who helped with information. Including several members of the Holiday Inn Fire Truth Facebook Page. Without that group this episode would have never been completed.  Finding the articles and information used to build this episode would have been impossible with out the Facebook group. You all have no idea how appreciative I am. Thank you!

I’d also like to thank Tracy Sundue the daughter of one of the victims who died. Thank you for taking the time to talk to me.
