Nov 24 2022 • 1 hr 6 mins

On Valentine’s Day 2018, students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were excited.  Some of them had purchased flowers and cards for their partners and friends.  The day was filled with love and promise.

At 2.19pm, former student Nikolas Cruz entered the school building and would change the lives of hundreds of families for ever.  In six minutes, Nikolas murdered 17 students and staff in cold blood.  He also wounded 17 others.

Nikolas fled with the escaping students and blended into the crowd.  He went to a McDonald’s restaurant and got a soda before he was arrested.

Join us for this double episode of the True Crime Society Podcast where we discuss the Parkland School Shooting.
