Kiley White, 26, allegedly claims brain cancer to con people into caring for her

Kiley White (Egg Harbor Township Police)

Linda and Steve Evans, of Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey offered their love, support and home to Kiley White, 26, who they believed was battling brain, kidney, liver and bone cancer. White lived with them for five weeks, moaning all night, supposedly in pain. It was all a ruse.

She’d pulled the scam before. But this time, White was arrested and charged wit theft by deception and harassment. In court a few days ago, she smirked and laughed at the family she conned.

Can anyone say psychopath?

Co-workers didn’t identify a sociopath, but knew something was wrong

con manIt reads like a typical Lovefraud story, where a guy seduces a woman with claims of love, financial stability, and even military service in the Special Forces. But the story is posted on Reddit, and it wasn’t posted by the victim, but by one of her co-workers at a big box retailer.

The co-worker posts:

She recently meets a guy on OKCupid (let’s call him Miguel). Miguel claims to live in a bigger city than ours, an hour away (we are in the middle of nowhere in Kansas) and that he is 35 years old, also claims to be a virgin, and takes an interest in Jane.

Isn’t it strange? Sociopaths lie, cheat, steal, manipulate, deceive and exploit, all without a shred of remorse. And we, the targets of the abuse, are overwhelmed with guilt.

We feel guilty because we fell for their charm. We feel guilty that we didn’t escape soon enough. And when we do escape, we feel guilty about hurting the sociopaths’ feelings — even though they don’t have any.

Wow! Lori Isenberg allegedly embezzles a half-million dollars, then her husband ends up dead

Lori Isenberg (Kootenai County Jail)

On Feb. 13, 2018, Laurcene (Lori) Barnes Isenberg, 64, reported to authorities that her husband, Larry Dean Isenberg, had fallen out of their boat into Lake Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

Are Addicts Sociopaths?

Robert A Moran, MD, FAPA, FASAM

By Dr. Robert Moran

It’s very important to know the difference between someone acting like a sociopath and someone who is a sociopath but also happens to suffer from addiction too. They are two different types of conditions.

During childhood a sociopath has a condition known as conduct disorder. This is a condition in which the child does not follow rules, is aggressive toward others and toward animals, starts fights, uses weapons, is cruel, steals, destroys property, starts fires, lies, defies authority, is truant from school, etc.

Dr. James Kauffman: military fraud and drug dealer, hired a hit man to murder his wife

A few weeks ago, ABC 20/20 broadcast a show about the murder of April Kauffman in 2012. Last year, her husband, Dr. James Kauffman, was charged with hiring a hit man to shoot her in their home. In January, James Kauffman hanged himself while in prison awaiting trial.

The crime took place in Linwood, New Jersey, which is practically in my back yard, so I’ve been reading the news coverage for years. I began to suspect that the good doctor was a psychopath early on — when he remarried shortly after his wife’s death and tried to collect on her insurance policy.

5 Reasons why the sociopath’s behavior in your relationship makes no sense

Shock. Confusion. Disbelief. These are common experiences when you’re romantically involved with a sociopath.

You ask yourself, or your friends, or your therapist, questions like:

  • “How can he be talking about getting married one day and ghost me the next?”
  • “How can she be so mean and cruel and then act like nothing ever happened?”
  • “How can he tell me that he loves me while he’s cheating with someone else?”

Sociopathic behaviors are so confusing because your expectations about what a romantic relationship is, and how people who are supposed to be in love treat each other, are totally different from those of the sociopath.
