The people who killed award winning environmentalist Berta Caceres had every reason to believe they’d get away with murder. More than 100 other environmental activists in Honduras had been killed in the previous five years, yet almost no one had been punished for the crimes. This time would be different. Bloomberg’s Blood River follows a four-year quest to find her killers – a twisting trail that leads into the country’s circles of power. Blood River is available now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen.Subscribe today: https://smarturl.it/BloodRiver

Seriously don't understand how people can just hand over their entire life, money and free will to any one person, manipulative or not, sociapath or sane but then lm not walking in their shoes to understand it. How is it possible that such intelligent people can't see manipulative control being slapped in their face? It's total evilness and insecurity totally playing its part odveriously.

in one way it's hard to believe this was possible. but on the other hand it's easy see how someone's free will is eroded bit by bit. Great Story

This is admonishing. How can someone allow a "therapist" to control them in such a way?

Ike is at least a high level narcissist . Playing with other peoples lives for greed without caring a bit. Maybe even psychopathic.
