  1. My DNA is on GED Match, but I don't remember being asked about LE access. I'm sure I would have agreed though. I use a length of pvc pipe in the track ever since reading about how DeAngelo had no problems getting into locked sliding doors. He seemed to prefer them!
  2. And not just any gun, but a snub-nosed 38 special which are not known for "just going off" by themselves. Same gun Jack Ruby used on Lee Harvey, one and done. Here's an ammo chart for comparison.
  3. I'm surprised they based the series on this particular book because although what's there is very well written, there's actually very little about GSK in it. To me it was more about the author, but perhaps that was due to her sudden death. The rest was cobbled together from notes and no one had a clue who he was until his DNA was uploaded to GED Match. Apparently it made people from out of state more aware of this case, but what irritates me are the people around McNamara who try to say she helped solve it. When the news broke about DeAngelo's arrest, for some reason Patton Oswalt was there saying "You got him, Michelle!" WTF? Not true at all, and disrespectful of those who worked hard for years on it.
  4. I did our family tree last year through Ancestry.com and got obsessed for a while. I was able to get back to 1705 in Ireland then hit a brick wall. Found a lot interesting things my mom never mentioned. lol
  5. We know Betty has been professionally diagnosed with both of these disorders, and I gotta say they seem bang-on. While I can empathize with her situation, I don't believe Dan was responsible for her personality disorders, only aggravating them. Having a medical degree, he should have known better. Do the descriptions fit him as well? From Psychology Today Narcissistic Personality Disorder The hallmarks of narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) are grandiosity, a lack of empathy for other people, and a need for admiration. People with this condition are frequently described as arrogant, self-centered, manipulative, and demanding. They may also have grandiose fantasies and may be convinced that they deserve special treatment. These characteristics typically begin in early adulthood and must be consistently evident in multiple contexts, such as at work and in relationships. People with NPD often try to associate with other people they believe are unique or gifted in some way, which can enhance their own self-esteem. They tend to seek excessive admiration and attention and have difficulty tolerating criticism or defeat. Symptoms Individuals with narcissistic personality disorder, according to the DSM-5, exhibit five or more of the following, which are present by early adulthood and across contexts: A grandiose sense of self-importance Preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love Belief that one is special and can only be understood by or associate with special people or institutions A need for excessive admiration A sense of entitlement (to special treatment) Exploitation of others A lack of empathy Envy of others or the belief that one is the object of envy Arrogant, haughty behavior or attitudes Histrionic Personality Disorder People with this disorder are usually able to function at a high level and can do well in social and occupational environments. They may seek treatment for depression when their romantic relationships end. They often fail to see their own situation realistically, instead tending to overdramatize and exaggerate. Instead of taking responsibility for failure or disappointment, those with the disorder typically cast blame on others. Symptoms According to the DSM-5, for a diagnosis of histrionic personality disorder to be given, five or more of the following symptoms must be present: Self-centeredness, feeling uncomfortable when not the center of attention Constantly seeking reassurance or approval Inappropriately seductive appearance or behavior Rapidly shifting emotional states that appear shallow to others Overly concerned with physical appearance, and using physical appearance to draw attention to self Opinions are easily influenced by other people, but difficult to back up with details Excessive dramatics with exaggerated displays of emotion Tendency to believe that relationships are more intimate than they actually are Is highly suggestible (easily influenced by others)
  6. I noticed that too. Either the director has a foot fetish or they're trying to emphasize the casual nature of her work? Thing is, she isn't dressed casually except for the bare feet. Those hair extensions must take an hour at least.
  7. Living in the same area, it's a reasonable assumption that they had some contact.
  8. Man, I love seeing these guys getting busted! Anyone know how it's doing in the ratings? I uploaded my DNA to GedMatch last year. They have all kinds of fun things you can choose from, like predicting your eye color and listing all the colors that blend together, complete with a representative photo. They were spot-on.
  9. It's hard for me to believe this guy didn't give off a creepy vibe, or his brother never suspected.
  10. Narcissists never admit they're wrong, so this fits. She was diagnosed as narcissistic with a histrionic personality. Dan didn't cause it, but leaving a narcissist is not something you do and get away with. It's not a mental illness that can be treated. They know right from wrong, they just don't care.
  11. CeCe does it again! Ugh, I hated that ugly slack-jawed creep for what he did. His punishment will be that's taken care of the rest of his life, food, lodging, medical. He didn't look too upset.
  12. It seems this show is trying to blame the victim, even for Betty's craziness which went back years. From the time the kids were small she would tell them constantly they were getting a divorce and they needed to choose which parent they wanted to live with.
  13. I think that's the one, except now it's called "Betty Broderick, the mother the murderer"?. It says written by a Charles Dennis, but it's completely from Kim's perspective, so I'm not sure what's going on. She had to have some input, but maybe was disappointed in how repetitive and wordy it is. If you can get it from a library it may be good but I wouldn't pay money for it. Here is the Amazon link https://www.amazon.com/Broderick-mother-murderer-Charles-Dennis-ebook/dp/B01DEDKKXQ?pf_rd_r=HMCQ2XXNC1D26VG3Z9XT&pf_rd_p=be25f964-4afb-442f-819e-9e628b270a7c&pd_rd_r=8db76570-9e0c-442c-8c12-6fca1b4b524e&pd_rd_w=u5n80&pd_rd_wg=iQ8QG&ref_=pd_gw_ci_mcx_mr_hp_d
  14. I've just seen the latest one about Angie Dodge's killer. CeCe almost hit a brick wall until she figured out the offspring of a teen marriage might be going by a different name. I love these kind of shows. It's so satisfying seeing them nailed when they least expect it.
  15. I'm reading the book by their eldest daughter now. It seems pretty even-handed, but sounds like that whole household was toxic for a very long time before the divorce. Even the kids fought constantly among themselves. One thing she points out is that the devastating fire which completely destroyed their first house in San Diego is never mentioned in movies or books about the case. That it remains unmentioned here is odd indeed.
