Oct 11 2021 • 26 mins

Have you ever heard a story and said that couldn't happen to me?

As a culture, we love shows like Law and Order, Criminal Minds, NCIS, but we typically live our lives every day that can't happen in real life. Today's guest Bill Mitchel shares his story about the murder of his daughter following her graduation from college. He has taken this tragedy and made it his message to help give others the tools, resources, and support to be aware of before it happens.

He never expected his family to change in such a drastic way that would redefine it forever. You don't ever fully move past the loss of a child, let alone when they are murdered.
