A reporter's tenacity finally reveals a murderer
Intriguing. Heart-breaking. Yet one more situation of power/prestige allowing the guilty to go free for far too long and those around them being left to pay the price and pick up the pieces. Thank you, John Raley, for not allowing it to remain that way. I hope Brenda Holland can rest in peace ~ at long last.
