Unbelievably sad

I have 3 Grandchildren this story really makes you stop and realize how dangerous the internet can be if not supervised by the parents. The mother actually was heavily involved and even reported this monster. The investigation went nowhere.

Chilling, cold blooded tale

Incredibly cold-blooded accounting of an older teenager basically luring another younger teenager into visiting him. The overall case is extremely gruesome. The actual phone call to the police is incredibly matter-of-fact from the killer and sadistic to say the very least.

Still depressing, but exceptional.

This is a professionally made audio program describing events surrounding and the incident of each crime. The case is well detailed and the actual audio clips do an excellent job of making the events feel real and current.

Personally, I prefer to read (listen to) fiction, because I've never heard of many of these cases - as they're all from the UK and I am not - and they really remind the listener how awful humans are to each other.

The voice acting and narration are perfect. It feels like you're listening to a news documentary.

Theoretically, providing these stories will help prevent future crimes of this nature through increasing awareness.

What on earth were the police doing?

Ep 3 - I confess I was not really aware of this story but now I am.
So the mom phoned the police to report this guy and it doesn't seem to have gone anywhere. The fact that her child's personality was changing would indicate she wasn't imagining something. Why didn't the police take this seriously, if they had maybe Breck would still be alive today.
Even more disgusting is if you google Lewis Daynes he has a blog where he openly gloats. He also sent photos of Breck's dead body to other members of the gaming group. Breck's siblings saw the pictures before the father could break the news.
