  • seems we found where Jasmine was killed by stabbing her to death with the 6inch chef's knife in the garage. Was it Mother?

  • Why has it taken so long to search a murder victims residence? Surely this one of the very first things investigators should do. A dead girl is found in very strange circumstances on the 4th of Nov. and Her residence is searched two weeks latter on the 12th??? This doesn't seem right.

Have a question or a technical issue?

Let us know so we can help
