On July 19, 2005 everything came crashing down for the Johnson family, their beloved daughter and sister 19 year old PFC Lavena Lynn Johnson had been found, shot dead in Balad, Iraq. The Military quickly pointed to suicide but with suspicious and glaring inconsistencies, it leaves many to wonder if there is a cover up at work and the Military has closed ranks. For these six main episodes I am joined by Criminologist Dr. Ashley Wellman and Melanie Peterson from Mask of Sanity Podcast.
