The Associated Press recently published an expose in which 43 former congregants of the World of Faith Fellowship religious sect, based in Spinsdale, North Carolina, claimed they were physically and emotionally abused in the church.

They were “regularly punched, smacked, choked, slammed to the floor or thrown through walls in a violent form of deliverance meant to ‘purify’ sinners by beating out devils,” AP wrote.

Two assistant prosecutors in North Carolina, who were ministers of the church, have been charged with sabotaging investigations into the secretive sect. They allegedly provided legal advice and participated in a mock trial for four congregants who were charged with harassing a former member.

Ian Stewart

Ian Stewart, 56, the United Kingdom, was sentenced to 34 years in prison for murdering his fiance, author Helen Bailey, and her dog, and throwing both bodies into a cesspit under their home.

Judge Andrew Bright said it was “difficult to imagine a more heinous crime,” according to the BBC.

Helen Bailey met Stewart on a bereavement website after the death of her husband. While Bailey was planning their wedding, Stewart was planning to kill her. His goal, according to the judge, was to inherit her fortune.

Stewart drugged and then killed Bailey and her dog, but told authorities she had been kidnapped. Their bodies was found under their home in Royston, Hertfordshire, last July.

‘Sextortion Queen’ tricks men into performing sex acts on Skype, then blackmails them

Maria Caparas

Maria Caparas-Regalachuelo, the ‘Sextortion Queen’

Maria Caparas-Regalachuelo of the Philippines, aka the “Sextortion Queen,” boasts that it only takes 30 minutes to convince men to get naked and perform sex acts via Skype. Then she posts the videos to YouTube and threatens to send them to the victims’ families, unless they pay up.

In an exclusive interview with the Daily Mail, she details exactly how the scam works. She has a crew of “chatters,” mostly young girls and transgender men, who troll the Internet looking for targets. When they find a target, they play a pre-recorded video of an Asian woman performing a striptease, and then send a string of racy text messages.

The whole process is tightly scripted.

Caparas is now in prison in the Philippines. She claims to be sorry for her actions.

Horrifying saga of multiple predators, sexually abused children and murder

After all these years of running Lovefraud, at times I am still shocked by some people’s level of depravity.

Sara Packer, of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, worked as an adoption supervisor and, along with her husband, David Packer, fostered 30 children.

In 2004, Sara and David Packer adopted Grace Packer and her brother when Grace was three years old. David Packer was later convicted of sexually abusing Grace and a learning-disabled foster child. He went to prison.

Sara Packer took up with a new boyfriend Jacob Sullivan.

Grace Packer disappeared in July 2016. She was 14 years old.

Now authorities say Sullivan beat, raped and murdered Grace, while Sara Packer watched.

There’s more. This story is unbelievable.

Dylann Roof, they 22-year-old white supremacist convicted of murdering nine churchgoers in an African American congregation, was sentenced to death.

Roof acted as his own attorney during the sentencing. He was unrepentant. He said:

“In my confession to the FBI, I told them that I had to do it. I felt like I had to do it when I said that and I still feel that way.”

Roof also said,

“There’s nothing wrong with me psychologically.”

Spoken like a true psychopath.

Rafael Robb was convicted of murdering his wife (AP).

Ten years ago, on Dec. 22, 2006, Rafael Robb, of King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, bludgeoned his wife, Ellen Gregory Robb, to death as she wrapped Christmas presents. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Robb, a former University of Pennsylvania economics professor and an expert in game theory, was supposed to be released in January. A civil suit awarded $124.26 million to the couple’s daughter, who was 12 when her mother was killed.

Robb listed assets of approximately $3 million in the civil lawsuit. This week, Robb petitioned the court for $100,000 of his  assets to set up a new life after prison. But in a hearing, he mentioned an account in France, which he had not disclosed during the civil suit.

The Montgomery County District Attorney may consider perjury charges against Robb.

Derek Alldred, a con artist who claimed to be everything from a doctor to a Navy SEAL to an investment banker for the Royal Bank of Scotland, has scammed at least eight women out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

His most recent victim,  a woman from Arizona, met Alldred on a dating site. Alldred stole her jewelry and pawned it, then pleaded no contest to the crime.

Alldred pleaded no contest to theft charges and was supposed to be sentenced on December 13 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He never showed up for the hearing, and his victims fear that Alldred will just find more targets.

Donald Trump’s abusive behavior triggers PTSD — and so does Hillary Clinton’s

 

Presidential nominee Donald Trump went to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, the site of one of the bloodiest battles of America’s Civil War, supposedly to outline his plans for his first 100 days in office. But first, he said he’d sue the women who accused him of groping or kissing them without their consent.

Typical abusive behavior

Trump denied and threatened. That’s the typical behavior of an abuser — and it’s triggering symptoms of PTSD in women who have endured sexual assault and/or relationships with sociopaths.

A Lovefraud reader wrote:

I wanted to bring up something that has been happening and it’s alarming.  While Trump has been campaigning for president, it has caused flashbacks and triggered memories of my experiences with the sociopath.

I asked this reader about her symptoms. She explained:
