A woman is staying up late at Drexel University to finish a project. She becomes the victim of a senseless crime in a place where she was supposed to be safe.

The Gatton Murders

4/9/2024
When someone is murdered, or, in this case, more than one person, the family can only hope that the police do everything they can to catch the killer, making sure that they do everything methodically and carefully. There are times when the combination of diligence, intelligence, and good fortune solve cases and bring some measure of peace to the bereaved. This is not that story. But Acadia and Graveyard Grace are gonna tell you about it anyway.

But still, not enough. I don't even know what to think about this one because on one hand, I hate things like "Three Strikes" and mandatory sentences and stuff like that. On the other hand: Peter Dupas. Join us and find out why Australia needs to check itself!
