This was recorded during our Hidden Hour LIVE SHOW on our YouTube channel: Hidden True Crime on February 3, 2023. Each Friday night our Hidden Gems can ask our host--forensic psychologist Dr. John Matthias--questions.
A Massachusetts community is in shock when a seemingly wonderful mother--Lindsay Clancy--is charged with strangling her three children.
Another mother--Lori Vallow Daybell--is set for trial this April after being charged in the deaths of her two children--Tylee Ryan and JJ Vallow.
What is filicide? Why do mothers kill? How does this happen? What is the difference between these two women and their alleged crimes?
NOTE: If you are thinking of harming yourself or a child, call 911 or your local emergency number.
