A divorced, unemployed auto mechanic in his mid-fifties, Daniel told me a whopping combination of inheritance and elder abuse stories. He uncovered the disturbing details when he moved back home to Baltimore after losing his job in Atlanta.
An attractive woman in her mid-60s, Julie told me about her three failed marriages while we sipped hot chocolate on a wintery afternoon. The details of the first two are not important to this story.
Her third husband, Doug, was a real “lady-killer.”
When they married she had no idea he might be a cold-blooded gold digger who would murder her for money.
What about deadbeat moms? Unfortunately, plenty of women neglect the basic daily needs of their kids.
Brian shared a detailed personal story with me about his son, Sean, whose life took a lot of unexpected parental twists over two decades.
When he was in his early twenties, Sean didn’t know what to do with his life, so he joined the Marines. He was an alcoholic and his drinking problem became worse while he was in the service, stationed at Quantico, Virginia. One drunken night, he met a drug addict named Linda at a local bar. Sean knew that she was married but slept around with other Marines and local guys. They had a short fling.
