Editor’s note: The following story was submitted by a Lovefraud reader.

By Sellena

I highly recommend you all check out a brand-new movie, Soaked in Bleach. It is a documentary about Kurt Cobain’s death in early April, 1994.

This movie presents compelling evidence that Kurt Cobain did not commit suicide, but was murdered.

Tom Grant, the P.I. who investigated Kurt Cobain’s death, and who is interviewed a lot in this movie, thinks Courtney Love had something to do with Cobain’s death, if she didn’t murder him herself.

Combating Cult Mind ControlCult leaders are sociopaths on steroids. For this reason, Combating Cult Mind Control, by Steven Hassan, is packed with information that can help you understand how you, or someone else, fell under the spell of a sociopath, and how victims can escape and recover.

Psychology Today on Deception: Why we fall for scams, and how it affects us

| July 2, 2015 | 4 Comments

Psychology Today The cover story of this month’s Psychology Today magazine focuses on something Lovefraud readers know all too well:

The Drama of Deception

Being scammed by someone you trust is the ultimate betrayal. It’s bad enough that those who are duped heap guilt on themselves, but the world tends to join in the blamefest. And here’s just one of many ironies: Those with expertise are not immune to being conned.

The author, Abby Ellin, interviewed me for the article, along with the Lovefraud writer Steve Becker, LCSW. You’ll see several quotes from both of us.

Highlights of the article:

Marriage to the narcissist was bad, but divorcing him was worse

| July 1, 2015 | 9 Comments

Spath TalesLovefraud received the following story from a reader whom we’ll call “Mary-Louise.”

I was married for 9 years to a man who is a malignant narcissist, very similar to a sociopath. I have 2 kids and we share legal custody. I thought being married to him was bad, but divorcing him is worse in a lot of ways.

He had a sex and gambling addiction. He works as a fitness coach for adults and loved the automatic authority that gave him. He took full advantage of the women clients and had affairs with many of them. This was unknown to me until we separated.

Richard Matt and David Sweat

Convicted murderers Richard Matt, left, and David Sweat.

America’s attention in recent weeks was focused on the Hollywood-worthy escape from prison by two convicted murderers — Richard Matt and David Sweat.

Matt is now dead. Sweat was shot, captured, and is now under guard at the Albany Medical Center in Albany, New York.

The media have referred to both of these men a psychopaths. Looking at their crimes, I agree.

Sweat was convicted of murdering Kevin Tarsia, Broome County Sheriff’s Deputy, in 2002. But he didn’t just shoot the sheriff. Sweat ambushed Tarsia in a town park, shot him multiple times and then ran him over with a car. Here’s the story:

On the evening of June 17, 2015, Dylann Storm Roof sat in a Bible study group at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, in Charleston, South Carolina, for 45 minutes. Then he pulled out a Glock .45 handgun and shot 10 people, killing nine of them.

All of the victims were African-American. One was the pastor of the church and a state senator, Rev. Clementa Pinckney. Two others were also pastors. Six of the victims were women; three were men.

Fourteen hours later, Roof, 21, of Eastover, South Carolina, was arrested and charged with the murders.

The Lovefraud reader who posts as “Winifred” has written about dealing with her husband’s sociopathic ex-wife. Read “The Other Prey — loving someone previously married to a sociopath” and “Survival tips when the ex is a sociopath.”

My husband’s ex sociopath wife and their 2 (now adult) children have been the focus of many of my writings to you and this site. I title this article “The Aftermath” because his youngest of the 2 children with her has just been emancipated at 19 by the state of Indiana, Thank God!
