Though the article to me points out that the mother was murderous and would do anything to get the attention of and/or revenge, of her lover….it seems in retrospect that her possibly murdering the first little girl when he left her, brought the couple “back together” long enough to have two more kids quickly, but not “back together” ENOUGH to have a solid relationship. He left her for another woman, so she killed the kid in revenge for him leaving her.

My gut feeling is that the both of them were surely dysfunctional if not both down right disordered.

I stiil shake my head at the UK sentencing of “life” sentences = 12, or 20 or 30 years but there are only a dozen or so of the worst of the worst inmates who life means life in prison in the UK. I can’t think of another person who deserves to be in prison for the rest of her natural life MORE than this woman.

My Brother and his first encounter with a female sociopath

My brother was 40 when he met a sociopath for the first time.
He is bipolar and twice divorced but he has human emotions and a good heart.
My mother was at church one day and there was a young woman present. She was from a nearby village in Europe that my mother’s people came from. She had come to America alone and destitute with no money or family. A woman in the church had taken her in temporarily but she couldn’t keep her long-term.
My mother lives in a 2 bedroom condo so she offered to rent a bedroom to her. My mother also got her several nanny jobs in the area because my mother worked for an agency that provided domestic help.
So she came to live with mom. The girl was around late 20’s to early 30’s. And she was stunningly beautiful with an olive complexion of Mediterranean descent.
My brother always came to visit my mother and was taken in by the girl’s beauty and fell in love with her. They had a relationship going on for about 2-3 years. At one point she got pregnant with my brother’s baby. My daughter was getting married and they were planning on getting married after my daughter’s wedding. The girl was about 4 months pregnant at the time. While at my daughter’s wedding the girl met my millionare cousin who was in his late 50’s.
They talked for awhile but you wouldn’t make anything of it.
It was mainly small-talk. A few weeks went by and the girl was in her 5th month of pregnancy.
My brother wanted to get married right away but she kept putting the wedding off. To make a long story short she miscarried the baby. My brother was devasted. He took her to the hospital and the next day after it was over my mother took my brother aside to tell him she was nervous because the girl had spent several hours in the bathroom the day of the miscarriage before it happened.
My mother told my brother she thought something wasn’t right. My brother dismissed my mother’s concerns and said she was probably in the bathroom because the fetus was getting ready to miscarry.
A couple of weeks went by and the girl announced to my mother she had found a new job and a new apartment and would be leaving soon. My mother again thought it was odd as the girl had no contacts to speak of. She assured my brother she would contact him after she was settled. Several weeks went by and she never contacted him. My brother grew nervous and hired a private investigator to find her.
Come to find out she had eloped with my cousin and moved into his estate in the next state.
When he told my mother my mother put two and two together and told my brother that the girl was sneaking around with my cousin all that time and aborted the baby so she could marry my cousin.
My mother called my cousin and gave him the low-down. My cousin was shocked and didn’t believe my mother. We’re not currently talking to my cousin anymore because although he did not know of her pregnancy he did know the girl was my brother’s fiance.
My brother went off the deep over the whole escapade and my mother had to sign him into a mental health hospital for 2 weeks until he got his head together. After a couple of years later my brother went to my mother’s village in Europe to meet with some of the relatives. While there he inquired about the girl and her past.
Apparently the girl left the country shortly after her father’s death. Her father had died from mysterious circumstances and the girl was the last one to see him alive. She was never charged with his murder but the situation was sketchy.
All fingers pointed to her.
My brother came back home and told us the news. My mother told him he doesn’t realize how lucky he was to escape her clutches. The girl has since had a family with my cousin but news from the relatives says my cousin is very sickly and may be on his way out. He’s not that old. Maybe he’s on his way out from grief or stress. I don’t know. But if he kicks the bucket it was more than likely brought on by her.
I don’t know for sure if the girl is a sociopath but she fits the mold.
My mother says she was a big attention-seeker and my brother says their relationship was very stressful and he never felt comfortable or at peace. There was always drama going on with her.
I thought I’d post the story because she like this woman would kill to get what she wants.


Wow, what a story. Sounds like a sociopath to me. Scary stuff. Sounds very dangerous. If she killed her father, maybe she is now killing her husband…maybe she is poisoning him or something if he is so sickly…

OMG, that is horrendous. She needs to be outed quick.
Get you cousin away from her. My spath was poisoning me and it was only when I finally left him that I began to get well – within 1 week!

My mother has outed the girl to all the relatives including my cousin that married her. My mother told them everything, lock, stock and barrel. My cousin is so much in love with her he can’t see the forest for the trees.
His family is very worried about him though and believes my mother. He does not. My mother even told my cousin that before she left my mom’s house she made this comment “wouldn’t it be nice to marry a rich old man and give him a couple of kids, then divorce him and take all his money.”
My mother told him everything and he refuses to believe it.
There’s a saying “you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink.”
This could also be a case of karma biting him in the ass for what he did to my brother. He better make sure he’s got his will set up right. He’s got 2 married kids from a previous marriage and I was told they hate her. I just hope he doesn’t screw the 2 kids with their inheritance.

Dear Joanie,

That’s the problem with trying to warn people about women/men like this woman—I have been warned about psychopaths and would NOT BELIEVE the person warning me. I have warned others and not been believed, so I’ve been on both side of the warned and the warning, and neither one helped.

Your mom did all she can do, your brother is fortunate he got dumped. At least he will be alive. Your cousin may not be so lucky.

Another thing I wanted to mention. The girl also told outlandish stories. She told some people we know she was a medical doctor in her country. She told others she was a newspaper editor in Europe, etc.
My brother looked into it in Europe and it was all BS.
However when she told her stories she did it with a straight face to where she actually believed what she was telling you.

Joanie, one of the prime signs to me of a person being high in psychopathic traits (or at the very least being disordered) is that they are pathological liars and will “lie when the truth would fit better”—so the wild stories of she is this or that career is par for the course for someone who is a pathological liar.

I watch for lies when I am dealing with someone new and at the first signs that they are lying, puffing up their resume, or just telling lies in general…that is when I cross them off of my “friends list”

People who lie—OFF THE LIST
People who are dishonest–OFF THE LIST
People who are not responsible–OFF THE LIST

If you eliminate people who are one or all of those things, your life will be much more calm and peaceful. And SAFE. Did I mention SAFE? LOL


hey oxy – the wound is looking REALLY good!

One/Joy ~ I am SO glad that you’re getting BETTER!! Was real worried about that infection. Blessings to you dear!!!

Love & Hugs,



h2h, thank you! i was very worried, too. it has really turned around, although i am an emo mess from the antibiotics. i am d
handling stress a bit better today. and this down time has given me a chance to look at other things (besides work) and deal with some things that need dealing with. thanks so much for your care and concern.xo

One Joy,
Ain’t it great when the antibiotics do their job? It truly is like a miracle. I’m so glad it’s working for you.

There is something creepy about the father. His stories have too much detail, “I gave her a kiss and she just wiggled her nose”. It strikes me as a fire and gas relationshit. He, a spath and her a borderline. She killed and he drove her to it.

That’s just how it strikes me. Something is “off” here.


sky, yup! antibiotics are a miraculous invention. not so sure about doctors, though.

Dear One/Joy, Well the guy who finished last in his medical school class is still “doctor ____” and even the guy who finished first isn’t always 100% correct, but you can chalk this down to 1 of your 9 lives used up. That infection would have killed you in the days before antibiotics. NO JOKE.

If you think about it —the chances of living to be even 40 in the days before antibiotics and vaccines were pretty slim, if you add in the problems and deaths with child birth the decks were stacked against women before age 45 when most who survived to that advanced age quit having children, (at that age men FAR outnumbered living women that age) but the men started dying off like flies about that age from heart problems, so by the time they were 60 there was about an equal number of men and women again.

I know of 6 infections that would have killed me pre antibotic days that I’ve had, and who knows how many childhood diseases I might have died from without vaccines? I was also one of the first group to get the Salk polio vaccines. I am really glad that you kicked this thing, One….(head shaking here) I hope you realize how serious this thing could have been! I think you do. Keep up your good work with decreasing stress and increasing mental and physical REST.


oxy – aint’ that the truth: ‘Well the guy who finished last in his medical school class is still “doctor ____” ‘

but it’s not just how good they are at what they are trained to, they are not properly trained, in most schools, to listen and interact with people, not diseases. I have had great doctors – they have been few and far between. if i hadn’t advocated for my mom, she would have died from a brain aneurism.

antibitoics have changed the face of the world, for the most part to the good (although their overuse is causing problems – but again that is the fault of humans), although they almost killed me several times as a child.


Yes, people do react to antibiotics and keel over dead, my egg donor is so allergic to Penicillin that if she drinks milk from a cow that has had it she reacts….I didn’t develop my allergy to PCN until recently (last few years) but I figured I eventually would. But there is no medication of any kind that cannot or does not have some “down side” or “price to pay” for it. You just have to look at the RISK versus BENEFIT RATIO….Any choice we make has a risk and/or a benefit.

I’m fortunate in that my doc finished first in her class and she is a “normal human” who does not think Doctor means “god” and she talks to and listens to patients….me included. She laughs with me and AT ME as well. Which is okay….though when she is RIGHT, I want to slap her off her stool! LOL She missed her calling in stand up comedy. My favorite line was when I was arguing with her that my feet and legs swelling could NOT be my sodium intake and she said “Well, have you ever figured you’ve never been this OLD BEFORE?” Yea, she was right! As badly as I didn’t want her to be right, she was, and her humor made me see it and more importantly ACCEPT IT. Yep, I’ve never been this old before! But I intend to get OLD-ER as well, and in order to do that I have to take better care of myself, my diet, my exercise and my emotional health as well.
