Australian woman caught with drugs in a love scam may hang

Maria Elvira Pinto Exposto is on trial for drug charges and faces the death penalty.

An Australian grandmother, Maria Elvira Pinto Exposto, 54, travelled to Shanghai in 2014 to meet a “Captain Daniel Smith,” whom she met and fell in love with online. He claimed to be an American soldier serving in Afghanistan, and asked her to bring a backpack to Melbourne.

At a stopover in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia, Maria was arrested. The backpack contained 1.5 kilograms of methamphetamine sewn into a hidden compartment.

Maria is now on trial. If she is convicted, she could face the death penalty. Malaysia has a mandatory death by hanging penalty for drug trafficking.

Ironically, a sociopath’s previous weak relationship with a child gives the sociopath great power over that child–I’ll love you now if . . .

My sociopathic husband and mind control manipulation

A fresh pail of red barbecue sauce sat on the chef’s counter, ready to marinate overnight. The gluey liquid was lathered on dozens of orders of baby back ribs before they were grilled over flaming logs. I recall thinking, as I brushed on my rouge and applied creamy lipstick for the night shift, that the difference between the calves and myself was measurable. The instant the thought occurred, though, I dismissed it. I wondered at myself. Where did these bizarre thoughts come from?

Danish inventor Peter Madsen charged with murdering Swedish journalist Kim Wall

Kim Wall’s body, without her head, arms or legs, washed up on a Danish shoreline.

Kim Wall, a freelance journalist from Sweden who sometimes wrote for the New York Times, wanted to interview Peter Madsen, a Danish inventor known to be eccentric and temperamental. On August 10, they left for a ride on Madsen’s 55-foot submarine. The next day, Wall’s partner reported her to be missing.

Eleven days later, her torso washed up on a Danish shoreline. The head, arms and legs were missing.

Yes it looks silly, but scientific research shows EFT Tapping relieves anxiety, depression and PTSD

After the sociopath, how to feel better quickly — that was the subject line of an email that I recently sent out about Lovefraud’s new webinar on Emotional Freedom Techniques, or “Tapping.”

“This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen,” responded one of our readers.

I agree — tapping does look ridiculous. My email included the above video of the instructor, Stacey Vornbrock, and me tapping on our faces with our fingertips. But guess what — EFT Tapping works, as numerous scientific studies have found.

If you feel an emotional void, the sociopath will step right in

I received email from a woman whom we’ll call Adriana:

I am told I am a very beautiful, intelligent, fun, woman, but that is all subjective. I am 61 years old but pass for late 40’s; good genes. I have been divorced for 10 years and engaged once during that time. I have dated so many men and feel that I have no purpose because I can’t find “him.” I don’t find most men attractive don’t have chemistry with them and I don’t want to settle. I have not been successful in love at all and have tried to look within myself to see my faults but the truth is I just want to love and be loved.

Escaping the sociopath and battling B.O.B.

Editor’s note: Lovefraud received the following letter from a reader who posts as “stopbuggingme.” After 25 years, she realized that her husband was a sociopath.

When my life fell apart a feeling arose that I really hadn’t felt before. Bitterness. I was becoming bitter. A bitter old b*tch. I called her Bob. It was like every time I opened my mouth Bob took over, spewing her bitterness everywhere! Even if I was just talking to myself, Bob would interrupt. She had to be stopped! Here are three things I used to keep Bob from living my life.

If the truth is inconvenient, sociopaths lie (with great calm and conviction)

Chapter 51C: The Earthquake Strikes

I tried to fight the wave of despair cresting above me. I could not. Gravity won—it always does. Anguish and hopelessness pounded down, expelling the air from my lungs and the tone from my body. Yet, driven by the instincts of a mother bear protecting her cub, I pushed through the emotional train wreck and crafted a response to Paul’s email.

German nurse accused of killing more than 90 people

Neils Hogel of Germany is accused of more than 90 murders.

Niels Hogel, 40, a nurse in Germany, had a bad habit: He gave dangerous drugs to intensive care patients so that he could resuscitate them. Except sometimes he failed, and the patients died.

Hogel was found guilty of two murders in 2015 and jailed for life. But since then, the police investigated other deaths in the hospitals where Hogel worked, and suspect that he may be responsible for at least 88 more murders.

A psychiatrist says that Hogel is “deeply ashamed.” I doubt it.
