[Obscured]ll No Answers In Real Estate Mogul's Death

[Illegible word]
Washington Seattle Journal News Staff

[obscured] continue to search for clues
[obscured] mysterious death of real
[obscured]e magnate, Victoria Belfrey.
[obscured] body of the successful business-
[obscured]man was found last week by her
[obscured]ughter, Ivy Belfrey, in the Hyperi-
[obscured]n Heights Greenhouse
at the edge
of Lyric Park. Autopsy results are
still pending, but police have not
[obscured]led out foul play.
"We continue to follow all investi-
gative leads, no matter how small,"
Detective Weaver, lead investigator
from the Hyperion Heights Police
, said during a press
conference this morning. "But
we've only just begun." Detective
Weaver refrained from offering up
[obscured]ny potentical suspects or motives,
but did say that a woman in Ms.
Belfrey's position had "burned
many bridges".
The loss of this great community
leader has come as a shock to this
small, insular neighborhood, one of
the lesser known suburbs of Seattle.
A common refrain among residents
is that these streets have been safe
for as long as anyone can remember.
"You can't help but wonder if things
are changing now," said a fifty-three
year old woman, who asked that her
name not be printed. "If someone
like Victoria Belfrey isn't safe, then who is?"
With its community clearly
rattled, the Hyperion Heights police
department is working hard to
assure residents there is no cause
for alarm. "Whatever happened to
Ms. Belfrey has a perfectly reason-
able explanation," Detective Rogers,
coleader of the investiagtion, said
in a meeting with local leaders.
"Our streets are as safe as they've
ever been. Of that much I am sure."

Never even knew Hyperion Heights existed!!!

Super fresh podcast, dude. Lived the NPR vibe and the slow story burn.
I was hooked right to the end. But now I have to know – who killed Victoria
Belfrey?!? Must. Have. Season. Two. RIGHT NOW. –Jerome S,

Binged the whole thing in one night!!

Started listening to this podcast on my way home. I didn't even realize that I was
still sitting in my driveway an half hour later, mesmerized by your wonderful
podcast. Even though I've never been to Seattle, I feel like I've walked the streets
of Hyperion Heights, plucked a few of Lucy's hyacinths and eaten at Mr. Cluck's
with Jacinda and Sabine. I very much hope this beautiful story continues! – Piper Lou

So many ships, so little time!

So many ships, so little time! Don't usually listen to podcasts, but you sound hot. Like
SERIOUSLY hot. I never cared so much about real estate deals in my life.
The story's pretty good too, but wow. If that whole thing with Jacinda doesn't
Work out, I am stopping by Roni's sometime. –Dana H.

Great, but I hate cliffhangers!

Wait, so Victoria Belfrey DIED?! And that's it?! You've got to be kidding me.
I really enjoyed listening but I'm taking one star away for that crazy
cliffhanger. Stories have a beginning, middle, and end. What kind of
ending was that?!? –David G.
