Ashley White took a nap in 2015, leaving her children alone. When her 5-year-old son Noah is found dead in the family’s septic tank, the backlash was stronger than anyone could have imagined.

Customer Reviews

A ‘Must Listen’ podcast!

To really grasp the truth about addiction and recovery as well as the implications on society and individual persons, listen to this podcast. To truly understand Ashley and her loss as well as how it is unrelated to her recovery from addiction, listen to this podcast. It’s an extremely fair and unbiased look into this tragic case. Kudos for TRUE fair and balanced investigative journalism! If you like Counterclock, Bear Brook, Missing Alissa, etc. you’ll love this podcast, even though it’s not ‘true crime’.

Glad I found this

I have to admit I would have and have been that judgy person due to media influence. After listening to this side of a story I feel bad for acting/feeling the way I have in the past. I’m not done listening yet but I’m hoping the outcome of the trial is in Ashley’s favor.

Story is okay REALLY BAD MUSIC

I wouldn’t have written this if it was this bad but the music is unbearable I can’t listen to it. Sounds like sawing wood. Why did they choose this awfulness???
