An opportunity to get the truth from Sydney, and get justice for Robin Greene—no matter what it took.More information:Dan Zupansky’s book:  Trophy Kill: The Shall We Dance Murder by Dan ZupanskyTrue Murder podcast: https://www.blogtalkradio.com/dan-zupansky1Podcast recommendation:COMMONS: Real Estate!Thanks for supporting our sponsors!See the special offer codes here Don'
