John Battaglia Jr. was a handsome Marine veteran who used his looks and his charm to sweet talk women in his life. But there was a secret inside that he unleashed as soon as his wives were “trapped” in marriage with this monster. His first wife, Michelle Ward, a highly educated lawyer, suffered domestic abuse at his hands, while his second wife, Mary Jeane, a wealthy woman suffered both emotional and then later physical abuse at his hands. John terrorized his estranged wives and then his ex-wives, but the real terror wouldn’t be against his unlucky ex-wives, his revenge would be against the most innocent of innocent. Dig in with Margot as she discusses John Battaglia Jr.’s reign of terror on his family.
