                    When Francis said she knew something about the murder, I think she knew who the killer was. Hence the reason she wasn’t afraid to walk alone at night. And i think maybe her collaboration on the book and other information she was saying was jeopardizing the killer. Maybe the killer felt she would eventually say too much and thats why he ended up killing francis too. Just my thoughts at 6:27

I went there on gradventure and my friends and I tried butter beer. If you ever go you have to try it. There really isn’t much else that’s good about Florida though. The whole state is.. interesting.
                                                                                  Also let me just say I’m moving away as soon as I get the chance.
