Hopefully, in the next couple of days, I’ll have my review posted for Two Girls Down by Louisa Luna. The story is that of two girls who go missing and the P.I. tasked to find them.

It got me thinking of a more recent true crime story that’s captivated my attention. The murders of Abigail Williams (13) and Liberty German (14), known as Abby and Libby to family and friends. Their seemingly random, and still unsolved deaths, have been dubbed the “Snapchat Murders” in the press.
