The twisting, turning, stranger-than-fiction true story of the Brobergs, a naive, church-going Idaho family that fell under the spell of a sociopathic neighbor with designs on their twelve-year-old daughter.
This "Smiley Face Murder's idea is being misrepresented here.
As of January 2019 there is not official police investigation in any jurisdiction
in the U.S. This is a theory and nothing more at this time. The only place this
is being pursued is by the production company responsible for the show and
the Oxygen Network. In the first episode it mentioned a few times that there
was a transaction after Dakota James was known to be dead. While they liked
to mention that it occurred they never mentioned looking into it. Something like
that is easily explained, it could have been a pre-order of soon to released item.
Or a repeating order that repeats monthly, such as can be done on Amazon.
For some reason they didn't bother to go any further then that with that detail. Possibly because it would remove tension they want to have associated with this
story. The journalist associated with story seemed to want to pick apart the remarks made by the retired Corps of Engineers employee. The journalist was actively arguing a story line when all he should have been doing was fact finding. The Corps had the flood gates open, but he wanted to imply some sinister goings on.
Granted the autopsy could have been handled better. But there no knowing for sure how long that body was in the water, not every single case will be like the next in every detail. And there's not way to know for sure if that body snagged on some underwater obstacle causing some of those findings in the autopsy.
This show is built on grieving people that are clinging to the hope they can find
out something to explain the unexplained death of a loved one. With the facts
shown in this show. It would be a waste of taxpayers money to do a major investigation of this case without more compelling facts.
The investigators seemed to be glossing over details that didn't support the story line of a series of so-called smiley face murders.
There are smiley faces drawn, carved and painted all over the United States. Just because some bodies have turned up next to them does not mean they are connected. The smiley face my be one of the most ubiquitous symbols seen in the United States.
I gave it a 3 because many times during the telling of the story I was angry with
the way the investigators seemed to be steering this story, instead of letting the
chips fall where they may.
