Down & Away
I much enjoying the way this is put together. I especially enjoyed the 2nd interview #4 uninterrupted. Because just like the narrator said, I was able to hear the excellent way the police interrogated, and the discrepancies, concentrated attempts Waldron made to stay on point. Also his voice is a tell in itself, the rise, fall, giggles, all made my skin crawl.
