Things are going to get rough for you down here.” The eerie warnings possible police officers allegedly gave to these amateur sleuths to stay away from the case.

Sociopath Mashups: Chris Watts VS My Father, Dr. John F. Boyle
Collier breaks down how Chris Watts's behaviors and victim narcissism mirror his father's behavior, both in the courtroom and once he was in prison. The Watts family murders occurred in Frederick, CO, during the early morning hours of August 13, 2018. Christopher Watts admitted to murdering his pregnant wife Shanann by strangulation. He later admitted to murdering their daughters, four-year-old Bella and three-year-old Celeste, by smothering them with a blanket over their heads. On November 6, 2018, Watts pleaded guilty to multiple counts of first-degree murder as part of a plea deal and was sentenced to five life sentences without the possibility of parole. Episode highlights: • Distorted version of reality - how both men seem to live in a "Walter Mitty" world of their own delusion. • The Victim Narcissist - Both men seem to want the audience to feel sorry for them for all they have been through, completely ignoring the devastation and destruction that they have created. • "You Have a Good Idea, let's go with that!" - AKA the Grabbing at Straws defense, both men seem to latch on to insane ideas in order to push the narrative for their defense.

Incest & Sexual Assault (How She Survived) | Nancy Barrows

Incest & Sexual Assault (How She Survived) | Nancy Barrows
Disclaimer: This episode contains mature topics and includes graphic conversations about incest and sexual abuse. Audience discretion is advised. Named one of LinkedIn's 50 Most Impactful People of 2021, child sexual assault survivor-turned-thriver Nancy Barrows M.S. CCC-SLP is using her personal story to change the narrative on how we look, discuss and treat child sexual abuse, both here in the United States and around the world Episode Highlights: Nancy shares with us her personal story of being assaulted by her grandfather starting at the age of four. And, how her family was forced to confront the abuse after years of "being in the dark". Using her fierce resilience, combined with the love and understanding of her family, Nancy was able to confront her demons of an eating disorder and get off the hamster wheel of guilt and shame that so often survivors find impossible to disengage from. Collier shares the similarities between Nancy's trauma and his own dealing with the murder of his mother by his father. Nancy and Collier share a "knowing" moment, the point at which you can recognize trauma in others because you've been through so much. According to the CDC, child sexual abuse is a significant but preventable public health problem. Many children wait to report or never report child sexual abuse. Although estimates vary across studies, the latest data shows: About 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 13 boys experience child sexual abuse at some point in childhood. 91% of child sexual abuse is perpetrated by someone the child or child’s family knows. The total lifetime economic burden of child sexual abuse in the United States in 2015 was estimated to be at least $9.3 billion. Although this is likely an underestimate of the true impact of the problem since child sexual abuse is underreported. The prevalence of child sexual abuse is difficult to determine because it is often not reported; experts agree that the incidence is far greater than what is reported to authorities. If you or someone you know is suffering from or is the victim of sexual abuse, please use the following resources to seek assistance.
