    Hoarders

    There were no dead animals. There was some disturbing talk about chained up animals, and they show the rusty chains and the unsanitary conditions the dogs lived in. There was some talk about the collar being imbedded in the skin, but you are spared actual disturbing visual of the animals themselves.

    See my post above. Visiting VA nurse commented on late Step Father In Law's cat pee/poop/puke encrusted house, and never did anything further when he said she could clean it herself if she didn't like it. Those people are overworked and underpaid, and the people they report to are as well. Nothing would probably get done anyway. 😢

    Yeah, that's a poor choice of titles. I'm sure they're talking to any attorneys that worked with him, or looking at how he defended himself, but someone should receive a reprimand for that title. Yeesh.

    That one is suspiciously "square" at the top. Photoshop.....lame. Someone needs to do an intervention with her before her eating issues get out of hand. She's already looking suspiciously skeletal.

    It may have been marginally better when the kids were there, ie: cluttered, but not filthy. The granddaughter said the toilet was working, and she was peeing/pooping in cups, and dumping them outside. My late step-father-in-law lived in a disgusting hoarded up doublewide with 14 cats - you could smell it outside. He had visiting nurses through the VA that would come in. My husband and his brother were thrilled because we thought this would be the end - we had an animal rescue lined up to come get the cats that promised they would not be put down. The nurse made a comment or two about the condition of the home. Late SFIL responded that if she didn't like it, she was free to clean it (note: my brother in law tried MANY times and would go in when SFIL was in the hospital and clean as well as he could, but it was a losing battle). The nurse dropped it, and said nothing further. It happens more often than you think.
  6. Was it espicey, and culturally significant? And put on a calendar? Did she include Juan? Not sure if I truly want to know.....

    The assisted living my late Grammy was in wouldn't have taken Linda. I doubt any assisted living would - even the crooked home from 60 Minutes (credit: Homer Simpson). I hope there were aftercare funds for her family, but the BSOJ said that they hoped Linda would take advantage of therapy "soon". Not happening.
  8. The non-famewhore people aren't interested, and they're the ones I'd rather see. 😢

    All Episodes Talk: All Rise

    I laughed when she made this huge deal about the Defendant being drunk, then freaked out that he didn't offer to drive her somewhere. Hellooo…..he's supposedly drunk......

    Yeah, my mom has called me a hoarder more than once (not true - disorganized at times, but not a hoarder), but she ignores her own tendencies. At one time, she had every check she had ever written - over 60 years worth. No amount of telling her she only needs to keep 3 years worth of stuff works. When she gets sick of dealing with it, she just shoves it in boxes and puts the boxes on shelves, in closets, etc. She also buys stuff to give as gifts and warehouses it. I do pick stuff from there for white elephant raffles, etc, but more comes in than goes out. Sometimes I can convince her it's time for a cleanout, but it gets full again quickly. She's nowhere near as bad as the people on TV, but she too resents being though of as a hoarder, and insinuates that because her stuff is marginally organized that absolves her. And she'll criticize me, but then call me from Wal-Mart at 11pm asking if I want her to grab me something that is a good deal. She also has tubs of shoes, purses - some never used. I keep telling her that at my house, if a new purse comes in, one goes out (or more than one). I take them to a used clothing store nearby. She pays out cash or store credit (store credit is more). You don't get near what you paid for them, but you can get rid of a bunch of stuff you're not using, and get one or two things you will. She has yet to do it.
  11. Yeah, I'm out of this one. Don't care about Roos and his Espicey wife. Don't care about Nicole. And I sure as heck am not down for Larissa and Coltee. I was interested in Family Chantal, but I will just need to have this forum fill me in, because I ain't watching.

    I don't recall him ever confessing, but I said at the start of my post that I absolutely believe he is guilty of some of the murders, but I beliee some were lumped in with him.

    I absolutely believe Wayne Williams is guilty, but there are some parts to the case that make me wonder if they lumped a bunch of stuff in to one package and called it "solved". 1) Most serial killers have a type and don't switch back and forth. WW was implicated in the murder of kids, teens, and adults. Also, all but 2 of the total victims were male. 2) Most serial killers use the same methods. A number of the kids died from strangulation/suffocation and were left outside. Most of the adults (if not all - having trouble remembering) were dropped in to water (although some of that could be with the police appearing on TV, suggesting that the killer might start dropping bodies in to water to hide evidence). One of the kids was found inside of an abandoned building, and one of the kids was dumped at the back door of the parole office (he had also been stabbed in addition to blunt force trauma and appeared to have been robbed - that victim had just testified against some other kids in a court case). But a number of the kids died by blunt force trauma, one was shot, and one was stabbed (not the one who was left at the parole office). It's just all over the place. Of the adults, ALL were suffocated/strangled, except for one, who was stabbed. 3) Some witnesses (yes, I know they can't always be reliable) said that there were 2 men. In the case of one of the females, they saw a man climb through the window of an apartment where the girl lived, and there was another man waiting in the parking lot. 4) There is at least one person on the original police team, and a well-known FBI profiler who believe that not all of these murders were committed by WW. The profiler says that he believes that police know who the other person is, and that "it ain't pleasant". I did find it laughable that WW's attorneys demanded DNA testing on the dog hair from the adult victims to prove he didn't do it. Turns out that the DNA test proves the dog was at least related to his dog, if not his dog. Same with hairs found on some of the adult victims - they couldn't rule out that they belonged to WW. I never figured the KKK had any involvement. The person they heard praising the murders who was affiliated with the KKK passed a polygraph. I know that's not foolproof, but that was really the only link. Not sure if I want to watch this or not. The Scott Petersen one just ticked me off.

    I think it's called "The Atlanta Child Murders" and it's on ID. Not sure when it is premiering.
  15. Whelp, I'm out. I refuse to support that cray cray and the domestic violence.
