I first discovered Laura on the Amy Sher episode of The Vanished. That case touched me more than almost anything I’ve ever seen or heard in the “true crime” realm. Its right up there with the wrongful conviction of Adnan Syed in Baltimore in 1999. But when I heard Laura speak in Amy’s episode I discovered my favorite law enforcement agent on the internet. I listen to Real Crime Profile and Crime Analyst because of Laura’s contribution to that episode of The Vanished. I’ve learned so much about coercive control - what Amy’s husband Robert Desmond (ARREST HIM BEFORE I FIND HIM IN CALIFORNIA OR ALABAMA AND TAKE CRIME INTO MY OWN HANDS) did to her was absolutely despicable and it sickens me to my core.
I could go on forever about how I admire Laura, but, words really can’t do how I feel about this woman justice. The world is a better place because of her and I support any and everything she does.
Thank you, Laura Richards. Thank you for all you do. You are truly an inspiring and amazing person.
