What does Rolling Stone Magazine assign their journalists to do?
They assign their journalists to ride motorcycles, go to factories, or shop with celebrities. Strauss will then write what it’s like to hang out with them. One thing he doesn’t do is invest hard news— at least, not until he received a call.
Where was Adea Shabani last seen?
It’s reported that she was last seen on surveillance in Hollywood at a coffee shop called Rise and Grind. Her last communication was with her friends. Her apartment was unlocked and there some activity was on her computer, but none detected from her phone.
What’s a good sign that you’re close to the truth?
Strauss has been receiving death threats and warnings for him to not post the podcasts. He believes that this is a sign that he is getting closer to the truth and is choosing to put his life on the line anyway by publishing his podcast.
What does Adea’s mother, Nora, think about the situation?
She believes that Adea knows that she’s there in her apartment. She is also convinced that she is the only person that Adea wants to see right now. Strauss states how similar Nora and Adea are by their actions and appearances.
Why is Strauss suspicious about Adea’s friends?
He feels that they are all holding back more than what they’re comfortable to share with him. They tell him that he should talk to her ex-boyfriend because his name is on her cell phone plan and lease, despite not living in the apartment with her.
