Join Ash as she starts to pick apart each of the prevailing theories surrounding the murder of 13 year old Bonzai out of Pekin, Illinois.
On this journey so far, we have heard a lot of theories, 2nd hand information, and 1st hand information. Now Ash wants to start dissecting all of this, to see what fits with the hard evidence. Those pieces of evidence that are well verified.
The two theories that seem the strongest have been a suspect the police named early on in the investigation, Keith Brackett and the suspicion Kendra came forward with in episode 12. Ash now wants to see which of these theories fits with the hard evidence and to see if we can eliminate or confirm one of the alleged theories.
Ash calls on True Crime podcaster Heather Ashley with Big Mad True Crime to help with the preliminary steps of looking into the hard evidence further.
Ash also plans next steps, to get additional law enforcement agencies to take a look at this cold case. She is planning a peaceful protest for November 21st from 1PM to 3PM. The goal of this protest is to hopefully get Pekin Police to ask the State Police to take over the investigation. Ash is asking for the community’s help, the more people that show up, the better impact the team will have. The group will be wearing yellow in honor of Bonzai. They are asking everyone to come with a mask and honor social distancing standards. We think this is an important step, but we also want everyone to stay safe and healthy.
