Episode 13: Help Me

Updated: Jun 28, 2020

Two children were pulled from the dark treacherous waters of the Willamette River just after midnight. How did they get there? Did they go swimming? Did they fall off a boat? Or were they thrown into the water? Join Emily and Alisha while they explore what happened that night and the heartbreaking case that left a broken family even more shattered and a city mourning the short life of an innocent child.

Hi there, I'm a new listener so still listening through your back catalog, so forgive me if this has already been addressed. In the future, would you be willing to share a disclaimer at the beginning of episodes that involve harm to children, especially by their parents? I find this stuff pretty triggering, but I want to listen, I just need some time to prepare myself.
