Emily was busy with S30, M7, and Slife cases when a mentally ill Kevin Jonas –still on the loose–began to believe that she was about to marry one of the inmates. Kevin Jonas decided to get involved. A few years ago, Emily started getting in touch with real criminals. One had a secret phone just to talk to her, the other waved and called, and the third recently learned that she was in touch with friends. Emily used her checklist to identify the root of the problem. Before, she used to analyze real crime documentaries, but then she got busy with actual cases. Kevin Jonas met Anne Hawthorn, the ex-girlfriend of inmate M7; both suspected a relationship between Emily and inmate M7 and decided to get involved. Anne was a teenager and was unaware that Kevin was a convicted rapist. She tried getting in touch with Emily, telling her that M7 had broken up with her, but then Kevin got involved.  Kevin also tried to get in touch with Emily using the opportunity to create fictional stories. Emily used to work with Nelly Tomas, who was later diagnosed with mental illness in relation to stalking and was fired. Nelly was in a one-sided relationship and continued blaming Emily for her failed relationships and work problems. Emily was busy with the 1-year anniversary of an inmate appeal when Nelly was diagnosed.



During his appeal. The lawyer didn’t know that the inmate was asked to choose between Anne and her. She knew from the eyewitnesses her gang. He chose his lawyer because he loves her. Kevin and Anne tried to plot against M7 and Emily, but they were unable to.

Before the crime

Was about to study business when his high school girlfriend felt insecure about his ex and they were secretly dating from her side. Many messages and talks stating that he was drunk and exchanged messages and pictures with Anne that was afraid her family/friends would know but later told Nina about his lawyer after she broke up. M7 beat up Rebeca male friend to death because his friend a story on Instagram about him. He went to him the night before but he never came out. Rebeca mentioned that she and the victim did indeed go out together but did not hold hands like Anne and M7. Verdict rejection was because of the death and the voice note.
