I deeply regret listening to this. I think you went a little too far with the gruesome details. If this story disturbed you as much as you say, imagine how parents of toddlers feel. I am a loyal listener and I'm sure others want all the details. Maybe in future, include a warning on episodes that have especially horrific details?

He killed his family because he's greedy. Alimony and child support for 3 young kids is expensive. He went about his business as if nothing ever happened like the sociopath that he is.

There was a family annihilator case in my village when I was 8. Small village of 500 people. The story is told like this: father comes home to find his 2 children burned to death and his wife severely burned. She dies a couple of days later in hospital from her burns. No case is ever opened. The village people of the village say she was depressed; they also disapprove of her because she was a working mother. Everybody 'just knows' that she did it. That's the official conclusion. I don't know if police investigated the father seriously, but it feels like there was not enough done.

heartbreaking story. I'm currently in a very abusive relationship where my boyfriend has beat me and threatened to kill me and my dogs and mom. I'm getting ready to see a therapist and possibly restraining order against him. thanks for this
