Description

Ash brings us the story of Barbara Daly Baekeland, a New York socialite who ended up being murdered by her son Anthony “Tony” Baekeland. Barbara had a long history of mental illness and eventually her son did as well, some argue Tony’s mental illness began when his mother tried to “cure him of his homosexuality” by taking him to bed herself. This was definitely a hard one to get through, but is a fascinating case for sure.

Describing baby Tony as a shiny toy to be showed off and then put away was all too spot-on. All your stories tend to the tragic, but the lack of parental concern for young Tony...and of even the most basic mental health care for all these obviously-troubled souls...was truly disheartening. Good coverage of a tragic tale, Ash!
