    Great episode guys. Love the podcast, I've been watching this unfold. Didn't think it would be on tcg so fast. Another unsolved case from Iowa I'd love to hear your report on is the lyric morrisey and Elizabeth cook. Disappearance/murder

    Sorry, Matthew! It wasn’t intentional-I live close to the area and it’s been all over the news today. Just wanted to spread some knowledge

    I am so sad for this family. They have charged an illegal alien (undocumented immigrant) with this crime. Even more unfair for the Mollie and her friends and family? In my opinion, this will get turned into a political agenda. Hopefully, justice will prevail. Praying for comfort and closure for her friends, family, and community.

    What about the ‘other’ girl, Kiera Bergman, who is black & has been missing for over a week under suspicious circumstances?

    Tragic outcome for this case. Still, one aspect of TCG that makes it my favorite true crime podcast, is the frequent coverage of unsolved cases. Media attention helps to keep investigations afloat, and turns up the heat on perpetrators. I feel like this show is about more than just entertainment. Its about sharing people's stories in the hope of finding answers. I'm sure that's a valuable service to the families who have lost loved ones under mysterious circumstances. Take care guys. And keep fighting.

    I was already a huge fan. After your story on Mollie Tibbetts, TCG will, hands down, forever be my favorite podcast!! Thank you for the caution you took reporting on the news as it came in today while you were recording. Your heartfelt sincerity in sharing the sorrow we are all feeling was truly touching. Thank you Nick & Captain... You’re the real deal!

    @ Diane - that too is a case of concern as any missing persons case is. My prayers are with Kiera’s mother and family. I hope there is a much better outcome than what we had to discuss today. Kiera’s boyfriend is a big problem for this investigation... he looks like a very strong suspect. The problem is if he did not have anything to do with her disappearance we have to then hope Police can move past him to get to the truth. Thank you Diane for the posting Kiera’s case on this blog. Her case needs awareness. Cheers Nic

    Hopefully you guys talk about illegal immigrants and how this assbag scumbag should not have been in this country. I for one have seen this personally with these criminals killing these US citizens. Why are the libtards in this country putting votes ahead of criminals???

    After feeling, in my gut, that Mollie would be found alive, I am now heartbroken for her and for her friends and family. I live in Lee County and my heart dropped when I heard that a female in her early 20's was found along the road. It turned out to not be Mollie but prayers go out to Sadie and her family. This case has hit me hard since I consider it a "local" case and I was in Iowa City last weekend and saw some of the missing posters. Great coverage and I am about to listen to part 2.

    I don't understand why you didn't wait until the press conference to record the second podcast. I am sure we all would have waited if it meant a later release to have you actually discuss what information was released instead of all the speculation. I am disappointed in that choice. And unfortunately I think that the fact that he was an illegal immigrant is going to overshadow the bigger issue here: if a woman says she's not interested, suck it up and leave her the f**k alone. Here is a perfect example of how catcalling isn't harmless. It is unwanted and sexual harassment and guys who think otherwise need to rethink their actions and their mindset.

    It’s so incredibly tragic. A murder that makes absolutely no sense. Some P.O.S. Driving around spots her and grabs her totally at random. I hate to say it but I’ve been doing this a long time and this kind of thing happens a lot. At least here they caught the guy. I think this stuff usually goes cold. This is exactly what happened with April Tinsley but thankfully with the new technology that caught John Miller. -Nic

    I don't get it. I've been taking self defense classes my whole life, plus kettle bells, etc. I still might get killed but they will never get me in their car. Ladies, get mace, get self defense training, hell , you can even get a taser these days. Switch up your running routine...just do it. I don't mean any disrespect to the victim, but this is bull. And yes, call the damn police if someone even looks at you crazy. OK, rant over. My condolences to the family. She seemed like an amazing person in every way.

    Yes tasers are the way to go! They do not cost that much these days as they are more common plus people in general are afraid of them. Meaning you may get the results you want just by pulling it out and pointing you may not have to use it. I am by far no gun expert in fact I know very little about them but the guns I chose for my protection were chosen because ideally I don’t want to shoot someone unless I have too. It tends to ruin carpets. My guns of choice give the POS the opportunity to run before I shoot their legs off. I have guns with lasers - they see the dot they run and I have guns that make noise- so they know I’m coming and they run. Buy a taser or at least pepper spray. Cheers Nic

    So sad. While its heart breaking, I’m glad the family has gotten some answers. The missing person cases with resolution seem cruelest on loved ones. Are you going to cover the Kimberly Kessler/ Joleen Cummings cases? If not, this is my official request. I’d love the TCG perspective on it

    Fifty people murdered a day in this country. But this one is going to blow up into something huge, as the politicians jump in a play up the "illegal alien" angle. Of course, those politicians will ignore the other 49 that were killed that day, because they provide the current hatemonger President no ammunition. Saddened for this girl and her family and friends. Also saddened for this country as her death will now be exploited by politicians that really cared nothing for her.

    I am surprised you guys are covering this case so quickly, but I appreciate the care you took with it. The wounds of this tragedy are still fresh. It's upsetting that this happened for such senseless reasons to a life with so much potential. --- Also @Bob Lord - don't make someones death into political bs. Murderers can be American, Mexican, Republican, Democrat, White, Black, or Blue. No matter your allegiance to a certain group, no person would condone a murder. You can argue that it wouldn't have happened if this person had not entered the country illegally. However, name calling and placing blame on a particular group is hardly going to help or make people want to discuss these issues with you.

    @ nic and sammie re: pepper spray. I have got and carry the Kimber Pepper Blaster. Looks like a gun and is gel not aerosol so you likely won't gas yourself. And I agree, carrying something... But also this is just such a tragic and random case. Thanks as always for my favorite podcast! Cheers.
