WARNING:
This episode is graphic and has descriptions of mutilation.

Kevin Bacon was a man who was looking for a distraction. What he found so so much worse. This crime could have been avoided, should have been avoided.

There are a few episodes that actively make me angry while reviewing them. This is one.
Please listen to victims when they speak up.
