Dads Who KillWhat would drive a father to murder his own children? The idea of anyone killing a child, especially a parent, is incomprehensible. Still, it happens and when it does the country goes into shock.Dads are meant to give their life for their children, not selfishly take the lives of their children.Why Do They Commit These Acts Of Maternal FilicideThe motives behind such crimes aren't always straightforward. Mental health issues are often at play, although sometimes jealousy, anger, and even embarrassment can come into play. In many cases, the father, someone who has traditionally been supposed to take care of the family and provide for them, feels a sense of failure and kills his children (and often his wife) to "save them."Regardless of the why behind the crimes, it still does not leave you with a feeling of understanding. For most, there is never a reason that could justify such an action, let alone be forgiven for it.Beyond Child AbuseJohn List, a notorious murderer, took nearly twenty years to track down, killed his entire family and left their bodies in the house while he went on to start another life. At the time, he was facing unemployment, debts, and other stressors. He resisted against killing himself because, as a devoutly religious man, he was afraid he wouldn't go to Heaven where he wanted to be reunited with the loved ones he'd killed.Thomas Bonny shot his 19-year-old daughter, Kathy, twenty-seven times. His defense attorney claimed he had Multiple Personality Disorder and, therefore, not completely aware of what he was doing at the time.One of the most famous cases revolving around a father murdering his child is that of Ronald Clark O'Bryan, aka the "Candyman." He poisoned his son on Halloween with a cyanide-laced pixie stix. He endangered the lives of several other children by giving them poisoned candy as well stating it was from someone else. It was determined he killed his child for the insurance money.Christian Longo, on the other hand, killed his three children and wife after suffering through one financial burden and mistake after the other. He was found in Mexico, impersonating a New York Times journalist, making the case that much odder.In the following book, we'll look at these cases and more. What drives a father to murder his children? What could his defense possibly be? And what is the aftermath of these crimes? Any child's death is a tragedy because it is a life snuffed out too soon. When the murderer is your own father, though, it becomes a different kind of horror.Would You Like To Know More?Download now and prepare yourself to be shocked by these acts of maternal filicide."Scroll to the top of the page and select the buy button."

About Alexander Scott

Alexander Scott is fascinated with anything that stirs him up emotionally and sparks his curiosity. Whether that is true crime, amazing survival stories or people stepping up to be heroes, he loves it all. Paranormal encounters, stories of personal triumph and even miracle births are on his radar of interests. He likes to write shorter books that get to the meat of the events. Think anything that you can read on your lunch hour that takes you away from the day to day monotony of life. You won't find disturbing images inside of his books. Some of the stories are shocking enough without needing to physically see what the crime scenes looked like. Our imaginations are more than enough. He isn't going for the shock and awe effect. He doesn't claim to be an expert on serial killers or true crime and he isn't some retired detective. Just a regular guy that likes to read and write about events that make you realize your everyday life might not be as bad as you think. When you read stories about parents killing their kids it makes you go home and hug, not yell, at your kids. When you read stories about people who overcome adversity, the problems you have in life don't seem so big after all. You would think some of the stories you read are Hollywood productions but sadly or amazingly, depending on the situation, they are real stories about real people. People that consciously hurt others or put their own lives in danger to save others. That is the mystery that Alexander contemplates all the time. Why do some sacrifice their lives for others while some intentionally take others' lives? What is it about being human that drives either choice? Alexander will continue to research life changing events and create these books for your enjoyment. He hopes they captivate you and makes you realize that life is precious so enjoy it.
