Murder Mystery or Suicide? The Death of Jessica Johnson Part 1

Murder Mystery or Suicide? The Death of Jessica Johnson Part 1
This week we are going to be covering the mysterious death of Jessica Johnson. The reason it is such a mystery is because of the divide in how people think Jessica met her unfortunate death. Police are going to rule this as a suicide, and it looks like the public is taking the opinion it was a murder. How could we have such a difference in opinion? Well, the investigation appears to have some large holes in it as well as mistakes. Plus, we find ourselves in a situation where we go to look for evidence that has disappeared. Jessica was last seen alive on June 1, 2017 and was found tied or hung (depending on opinion) to a mailbox on June 2, 2017. We have some suspicious characters and events involved and that leaves most of us with a lot of unanswered questions. In this weeks 'sode, Justin will give you the details and be looking for the debrief that will drop the following week where Justin and Mike break the case down further. The upcoming debrief will be a deep dive into the crime scene and investigation.If you are still reading this, please subscribe to the podcast on Spotify or whatever platform you are listening on that has it available.
