It never fails to surprise us the level of manipulation that some people feel comfortable using on members of their own family. Taking advantage of loved ones for financial gain is something we hear of all too well. Where do you draw the line? Our case this episode really makes you contemplate that question.
When Tashia Stuart , her 7 year old daughter and her husband, Todd, fell on hard times, Judy Hebert didn’t hesitate to allow them to move in with her. Her daughter and her granddaughter meant the world to her and Judy would do whatever she could to help them.
Unfortunately, it would be a choice that would lead to an unfortunate outcome for Judy.
Tashia had no reservations about stealing money from her mother, even though she was being helped and taken care of by a loving parent. In the end, she had no reservations about killing her mother to gain financially either.
Join us as we discuss the sad end to a beautiful life Judy had created for herself. She was definitely a person worth knowing and is greatly missed by all who knew her.
We believe that mental illness is a persistent issue in America. As mentioned in this episode, everyone deserves access to mental health help but few are able to get it for various reasons. If you or a loved one are suffering from mental health issues and don't know where to start, please contact SAMHSA 1-877-726-4727 for help in finding care in your area or go to mentalhealth.gov for more information.
