Thank you so much for your kind words. And yes, part of the reason I focus on these cold/past cases is because at the time there was very little support for or acknowledgment of domestic violence victims. Even in cases like this where the ex-boyfriend was convicted, Unsolved Mysteries still won’t use the term domestic violence.

Because of that, part of the lasting mythology of these cases is the erasure of domestic violence. I like to remedy that if I can, especially when the victims are popularly blamed for their own deaths/disappearances.
