I appreciated that discussion. There is just way too much misinformation going around and too many people who are panicked and causing more hysteria. Information is key to resolving any issue. Do we need tougher gun laws? More mental help? More intervention? Maybe a little of all, or none of the above, but this info will definitely help with making some of these decisions

Hmmm... why did not the school check, as you say, as to why the child was not in school? When I was ill or absent from school, my parents usually called in that day or before noon received a call from the nurse. Surely, with the connectivity of social media and mobiles some sort of alarm went up. Simply marking the child absent seems lacking IMHO. There is something amiss at that school. At this point the stepmom is innocent until proven guilty. Yes parents do take ill children to day care, on airplanes, and several places. It is a nice ideal to believe all parents can afford to stay home with a sick child all day long - even with a working significant other for support, however this is just not true. Parents call on near by relatives to baby sit for the day a sick child when they are not able to care for them at home. Many children attend school with ear infections having the school nurse administering the medications timely. The gym daycare was steps away and should the child require immediate medical attention a parent was right there. It is the same as if the child was on the couch and mon was running on a treadmill in the den. One may not agree with her actions to go out to the gym, however it is not a crime and she is not the only parent to drop off an ill child so they may do something else. Bring on part two!

Julia Prole Terry Yes, so sayeth the school, not stepmom who claims she watched him go off down hall toward his classroom. However, why bring him to school with the science project for the fair if he was not going to be there at all? Science fairs usually include the participation of the students talking about their work. Apparently he was exiceted to participate and (no information here so going with my experiencesof school fairs) if it was held the same day as setup, why keep him from participating? Why take the "proud parent moment" kid-with-science-project photo if he wasn not going to be there at all. The PTA President saw him at the fair setting up as well as another student (how reliable is this child's account- jury's out there) exiting the school alone (no mention of Kyron exiting with another person). If his attachment issue is considered to be as severe (though he functions in school and can ride the bus home) as well as his poor vision, does it make sense he would leave his classroom and run off unaided. I repeat: the school stated she said he would be absent not her. Okay, the school could be doing a little CYA'ing to deflect from a lapse in absentee verification (educationl institutions are not without scandal). I have no other information outside this podcast (nope haven't dived in yet) on their policies, best pratices, or adherence failures. It is a possibility and just a thought. Unless it is part of a plan - and a good one - going to all that edfort to take him and project to school, purposefully take the photo, be seen by PTA president, him running off down the hall, (no one saw her leave the building at the main entrance), ensure he is seen leaving the school alone, run errands, hit the gym, wait at the bus stop for him, and display the correct level of authentic panic is cleverness incarnate. Mia Culpa - more elaborate schemes for other mysteries exist. Parents of teens know this is a truth... Hypothetically: IF because of his poor eyesight he missed classroom door and kept running down the hall where would he have ended up? The south entrance? This might be when the other child watched him exit the school. Now finding himself outside what does he do? Run back in? Oops the door locked behind him, can't get back in that way. Does he run around looking to get back in? Does his anxiety set in and he dashes off blindly? Many tangents here, and the worst one of all, becoming a victim of circumstance as exiting the school presented whomever their opportunity. I opine without any additional research or information outside what was presented in the podcast. There is definitely more information and evidence not in my knowledge at this time and I admit this fact freely. Episode 2 is up and I am looking forward to hearing it.

Dear Dr. Phil, I know you may not read these yourself; but, I'm pretty sure at least somebody is managing/reading your comments (especially for purposes of statistics of your own, which partly dictate your career). So, to whomever of the Dr. Phil crew is reading this, is there a way to post resource links for the statistics included in the podcasts? I know they can be searched for online; however, even with ALL your team, even you must be aware, that method can be like looking for a specific needle in a needle stack. I don't think I'm the only fan who would be unbelievably grateful for the gesture. Respectfully, and gratefully, Xi

I'm going to go ahead and just say what I believe happened and what I think is, she 100% killed her husband and killed herself from the immense guilt she felt and from living in that environment.

Beth O'Brien (Btw, wonderful person, and people: I'm SO SORRY! I TRULY didn't mean to write so much. I was just going to humbly disagree. It just wouldn't stop coming out of me.) Not in my humble opinion [which doesn't really matter, in the grand scheme of things, anyway; so, I don't know why I'm bothering replying to this comment at all (except that I've been nearly completely checked out of life for such a long time due to my own health issues that ultimately terminated the fabulous life I had FINALLY just achieved all on my own, following a terribly tumultuous life to that point; derailed whatever life I had planned/dreamed/hoped for whatever adventurous and awesome future I was facing, I thought; and, temporarily, but an entire decade-temporary, stole my soul, both from all the meds I had to take combined with all their side affects and the inability to live and enjoy and do my life in any way, whatsoever, that I used to, and have had to find a way to alter every aspect of my external life just to get back as much of my internal self, "myself," and who I really am at my core, as much as I possibly can so far - but I'm definitely not there yet) and, feel like maybe I should say something every now and then, when I'm passionate about it, anyway]... It's so much deeper than that, I'm afraid. And, it's going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better. It's all a part of evolution, I think. We think we've come so far, and that evolution is something that happened before we got here, and that we've conquered the Earth and expect to conquer the universe. We haven't conquered anything. We're just the top of the food chain now. Evolution never stops, thank God or the universe or whatever started it all. Hopefully, that includes evolution of the mind for us. We have come far, when it comes to mastering the manipulation of materials (that have always been here) and turning them into useful, ingenious things. There's no doubt we can, and will, accomplish whatever we put our minds to. But, it seems (to me) the more knowledge we learn/unearth/discover, the smarter in knowledge we become; however, whatever instincts and biological things (that made us able to achieve things far and above just mere survival, that allowed us to become what we are today) seem (to me) to be disappearing like the glaciers.

Thanks so much for doing this. I've always wanted to study forensic psychology and I think Amber Hilberling is a very interesting. I saw her on Lock Up on MSNBC while she was in county before going to trial. I can't wait to hear it!!

I get Dr. Phil’s point about how she could not foresee him falling through the window because they are generally much stronger on high rise buildings, BUT he also broke a separate window earlier that day, right? So that should have given both of them the indication that the windows are more fragile

Ken Fulcher Yeah I mean, I can understand that the heat of the argument could have clouded her judgment on that particular risk. But I was just kind of surprised that Dr. Phil didn’t bring that up or ask her about it in the interview.

am i the only one that thinks that this murder is a vengeance? but not from the family, but maybe crooked business from Jonah? they came to kill his boy, since the did die (at the moment) they killed her... this was done by professionals not the brother in law or the mother of the kid, HAS to be a professional someone who know how to clean and how thurley to clean

Woah! Not really a fan of the Dr Phil show. But I listened to this after hearing Dr Phil’s Armchair Expert interview. I was really impressed with his interaction with Dax Shepard. So I gave this a shot. So glad I did! I love Dr Phil’s narration!!!!

This might be the years I spent in school...but I'm interested in knowing more about the statistics that were mentioned in this episode? Where did they come from and what was the data collection in building these numbers?

Emily Jackson Thank you so much for posting this. I think Dr. Phil mentioned during the podcast that we can verify the statistics by looking them up online. However, I'm not a big fan of that either. Even he knows that all kinds of biased crap comes up if we just Google for statistics for things. That would take longer than listening to the actual podcast. Just because it's a podcast doesn't mean posting your resources isn't possible. Maybe if enough of us ask, he might start?

A lot of people clearly have no idea or knowledge about how Dr Phil got where he is and the education, experience, and how his brain miraculously understands and has the gift of putting insight into people who never would have the capability to do that themselves is absolutely incredible. He absorbs and analysis everything. He pays complete attention to details that very very few people would even think of or consider it from a completely different prospective. How about those people do their research and educate themselves before criticizing anyone. Stay in your lane!!

The public needs to know who to call when someone is in crisis. Who will actually do something to detain and evaluate an at risk individual? A pastor or school counselor isn't enough. If a person is a day away from committing mass murder or suicide no amount of talk therapy is enough on an outpatient basis. Unfortunately they won't even be admitted if you take them to the emergency room or call the cops. This is where the gap is in the system. Dr Phil the public needs a flowchart complete with numbers to call to show us how to deal with mental illnesses crisis. The chart needs to be in every Anericans's household.
