Welcome back to the TCFC podcast. It is common knowledge that children who are abused or maltreated frequently have long-lasting effects as a result of the trauma they suffered. There are many physical, psychological, behavioral, and even societal implications of child abuse. The immediate result of child abuse is usually physical, both in terms of their wounds, but also potential brain damage from violent abuse. Mistreatment can lead to stunted brain growth, which can then lead to psychological issues immediately, or later in life. However, many studies have found that child abuse has been linked to a higher rate of diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, back problems, vision problems, and more (40). 

Psychological issues that stem from child abuse include poor cognitive skills, depression, low self-esteem, and attachment issues. Children who grew up in these situations have a higher prevalence of suicide attempts than those who did not. Additionally, those adults who do suffer from major depression have lower positive outcomes with antidepressants. Children of abuse are more likely to develop antisocial tendencies, which can lead to criminal behavior (40). 

Other studies show “that abused or neglected children are more likely to engage in sexual risk-taking as they reach adolescence” including a higher number of sexual partners and having sex in exchange for money or other material items. There is a higher prevalence of chemical dependency in adults who were maltreated as a child, particularly alcoholism. Of course, children of abuse are also more likely to also abuse their own children, although these numbers are not as high as previously believed. However, a study from the early 2010s showed that 26% of inmates incarcerated for murder had been subjected to child abuse, and an additional study showed that of 43 death row inmates, 36 had been sexually or physically abused, 37 were neglected, and 31 witnessed domestic violence growing up (40, 41). 

Despite the large numbers of violent offenders who were abused as children, the number of child abuse victims who do not resort to violence as adults is far greater – these children had broken the cycle of abuse (40, 41). Unfortunately, today’s perpetrator was not able to break the cycle of violence, destroying a family as a result. Okay…onto the show.

Hadden Clark – Hosted by Eric of True Consequences

Welcome back to the TCFC podcast. I’m Eric from the podcast, True Consequences, filling in for Lanie, who is on maternity leave. Research shows that children who are severely abused as children are three times more likely to develop schizophrenia as an adult (13, 14). In addition, “neglect and abuse in childhood have been shown to contribute to an increased risk of future violence” (15). Although this isn’t a reason to excuse the behavior, it does explain why some men and women grow up to be violent. Okay…onto the show.

True Consequences Podcast
https://www.trueconsequences.com/

About Eric: Eric Carter-Landin was born and raised in New Mexico. As a child, Eric lived in poverty and watched his single mother struggle to make ends meet. When he was six (1986) his brother was murdered and the killer was never prosecuted. Because of this and because of the amount of unsolved or unresolved cases in New Mexico, Eric decided to create a podcast that focuses on crime in New Mexico. True Consequences is based in Albuquerque and was started to bring awareness to the general public about some of the most known and unknown cases. This is all done to try to affect change and leverage public awareness to help drive some of these cases from cold to solved. This will not be done overnight and will take the efforts of every listener and member of the public but together we can make an impact. Thanks for listening and don’t forget to subscribe, rate, and review.

The Bloody Bender Prototype Ft. Charlie of Crimelines

Charlie of the Crimelines Podcast is the guest host for this episode, focusing on the crimes of Patty Cannon. Slavery is a heinous crime against humanity, and history has made it no less so. When slavery was practiced in America, there were unscrupulous individuals who would kidnap freed blacks and sell them back into slavery, as was the case of Solomon Northup. The most notorious of these was also a female serial killer. Okay…onto the show.

The Murder of Ashley Biggs (Justice for Ashley)

In most places, there is no statute of limitation on murder, so charges can be brought against someone regardless of how old the crime was. Thankfully, this allows justice to be served, even when a killer might think they have escaped punishment. That’s central to today’s episode.

Daughters Who Kill

Lizzie Borden took an ax, gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one. Lizzie Borden is arguably the most infamous case of parricide, although she was acquitted of the murders of her father and step-mother. But, Lizzie was by no means the last time a daughter killed her father or had her father killed. Today’s perpetrators are far from a modern-day Lizzie Borden, but the acts were no less horrific.

The Woman Who Stole Vermeer: A conversation W/ Author Anthony Amore

Rose Dugdale’s life is singularly notorious. Born into extreme wealth (she was a member of the last class of debutantes who were presented to the Queen), she abandoned her life as an Oxford-trained Ph.D. and heiress to join the cause of Irish Republicanism. While on the surface she appears to be the British version of Patricia Hearst, she is anything but. Dugdale ran head-first towards the action, spearheading the first aerial terrorist attack in British history by dropping bombs on a police station. Later, Dugdale was the mastermind and leader of the biggest art theft of her time, when she led a gang into the opulent Russborough House in Ireland to make off with millions in prized paintings, including a work by the mysterious master Johannes Vermeer. Dugdale thus became— to this day—the only woman to pull off a major art heist. The Woman Who Stole Vermeer will examine the likelihood that this was not her only such heist. Rose Dugdale was truly ahead of her time. It’s the perfect book for a wide audience. It will appeal to fans of true crime, fine art, and third-wave feminism.

Money brings out the worst in many of us, even family members. As we have seen before, sons have even killed their parents for money. But rarely is a murder so meticulously planned out as the one we discuss this week.

Víctor Saldaño

His mental state has declined severely and it brings into question, should we reconsider the death penalty for those who experience a severe mental defect as a result of the isolation they experience on death row?

Deadly Home Invasions

In the first half of this episode, we discuss the unthinkable It’s terrible when a child loses his parents to violence. It is unthinkable to know a child witnessed the murder of his parents.

In the second half, we will discuss Halfways houses, formally known as residential reentry centers, serve various purposes. Halfways houses of any kind make many residents in the area nervous, and trigger the NIMBY effect – the Not In My Back Yard. Some halfways houses are focused on recovering addicts, as a transitional point between treatment and return to normal lives. Others are focused on mental health issues, and still others as a transitional point between incarceration and a return to society.

Larry Keith Robison

The US has no ban on the execution of people with mental illnesses. Many states have considered legislation to exclude the mentally ill from execution, but none have taken that step yet. The Supreme Court has stated a defendant’s mental illness “must be taken into consideration as an important reason to spare his or her life.” Those with mental illness cannot necessarily understand their defense, even if they are declared competent to stand trial. Additionally, many death row inmates will waive their appeals and “volunteer” to be put to death. Today, we are discussing a man who was put to death, despite his well-documented mental illness.
