The writing is irresponsible, negligent, and frankly creepy.
The writer’s reimagining of each killing mirrors a portal in the very issue of its content. The dramatization and verbiage of this very sensitive subject is not only unintelligent, it’s creepy. Complete lack of empathy and reasonable reporting. So often talking about how handsome the killer is and how much the women want his attention. Mind you the victims are often children and teens. Calling them tinyboppers. Talking so much about what they wear. How easily they are victimized. The writer takes the liberty to explain how the deceased women actually feel and respond during their murder. What is that? Honing in on the creepiest made up details for the sake of entertainment. As an avid true crime podcast listener, this production was as distasteful as it comes.A D-list romanticized fluff of real events. Embarrassing at best. Gross in execution. Stick to the facts. The objectifying of women by these writers is frightful. Do better or do something else.
