LETTER TO LOVEFRAUD: A tale of two sociopaths

Editor’s Note: This letter to Lovefraud was submitted by Lovefraud reader whom we’ll call “Thomas.”  Names have been changed.

The First Tale:
The girlfriend’s ex

Last we communicated I was interested in getting your advice on how to handle the ex-husband of my girlfriend and the terror he rained down upon her.

You may remember he was a lawyer who knew how to deal with the law and use it to his advantage as a shield enabling him to be even more effective as a sociopath. The threats, the lying, the manipulation and the poison that he spread was unconscionable and designed to hurt and ruin the lives of others unless they did what he wanted.

Charles Black’s failed attempt at murdering ex-wife lands him in jail instead of on easy street

blackCharles Black, 71, of Maine, tried to kill his then wife, Lisa Zahn, 55, to collect her 4 million inheritance and run off with his former high school sweetheart.

It didn’t work. Even though Black hit Zahn on the head repeatedly with a rock, grabbed her by the wrist, dragged her to the edge and pushed her over an 800 foot high cliff, she  lived to tell about it.

“It’s an absolute miracle that she’s alive,” said District Attorney Geoffrey Rushlau after the verdict in Knox County Superior Court, according to the Bangor Daily News.

Will Jordan, Mary Turner Thomson, and children.

Will Jordan had a routine. He went online to meet single mothers. He seduced them with flowery emails. He told them he had no children, but really wanted a child. He got the woman pregnant — all while draining her assets.

Childless Will Jordan actually had 13 children with eight different women. He didn’t support the children. And the women lost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Lisa L. Hockett: Removing Their Favorite Weapon

Lisa L. HockettBy Lisa L. Hockett, MS, CFDS

One thing that is universal in all child custody battles and most divorces with a sociopath is the “crazy” card. They will play the crazy card at the drop of a hat in order to portray the victim as someone unworthy of trust and unable to function like a “normal” person. When a new client comes to me and says she/he is afraid they will use their health history against them, that’s when I recommend my favorite offensive move: ADA Accommodations. Get out in front of it before they pull that play!

John Wilkes Booth

“Many people assume horrific crimes indicate the perpetrator has a disturbed, even deranged, personality,” says Dr. Kent Kiehl, a psychologist at the University of Mexico and one of the foremost experts on psychopathy.

As far as horrific crimes go, one of the most famous is the killing of President Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth. So, was Booth a psychopath?

In his new book , The Psychopath Whisperer, Kiehl applied the Hare Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (PCL-R) to historical information about Booth. The result may surprise you.

Sociopaths, pain and the Primal Scream

The_Primal_Scream_sizedThe Primal Scream — I remember this book being all the rage when it was published in 1970, even though at the time I had just started high school. Everyone was talking about the book, by Arthur Janov, and the therapy he developed, called primal therapy.

For me, that was the end of it. I never read the book. I never heard anything more about Arthur Janov. I haven’t thought about Primal Scream or primal therapy in more than 40 years, until a few weeks ago, when a Lovefraud reader brought it up.
