Over the last two episodes, I told you the story of five-year-old Garnett Spears, whose mother was convicted of his 2014 murder by sodium poisoning. Garnett’s entire life was filled with medical procedures, treatments, medications, even surgeries he didn’t need, all thanks to his mother’s pathological need for attention.
In this episode, the third in my series about Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy, I’ll tell you the stories of other children affected by medical child abuse, and other caregivers -- mostly mothers -- whose bizarre behavior, lies, and willingness to abuse and even kill the children in their care is the reason for their inclusion on this list.
This is part 3 in my series about the inexplicable phenomenon of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy.
Andrea Dunlop’s novel, We Came Here to Forget
