I don't believe for one second that mental illness was a factor in these murders. They were about to get busted for neglecting and abusing these children and their whole facade was on the verge of crumbling. Everyone would find out about their secret and their ego couldn't accept that so one (or both) of them opted for the classic murder/suicide scenario. Narcissism is a personnality disorder, not a mental illness.

This story was so so very sad, it's the children. My energy and prayers are for them including the first child they had and how sad her story was too but in hindsight she got away. At the end of the last video as I reflected on every episode thoughts pulled me more to Jen who probably had intentionally planned this on her own. To me Sara loved her very much and took the punishment to save Jen. Sara was the one working and taking double shifts to support the family. I don't know everything but somehow it bothers me to assume it was both of them. Yes Sara might have known most of the things going on but was away from the home more. Yes they were married, but I think they should have had a episode apart from one another. I can only imagine that Sara didn't know that they all were going to die. Sara loved Jen and maybe just wanted to protect her. I'm not saying if things were different Sara still should be charged with the crime of knowing about the abuse and let it continue but to me Jen should be the one to be charged with 7 counts of murder. Even though they were married they were still individuals.

Such a sad story. Sound editing is lacking in a few areas. Parts where conversation abruptly skips.

do we fill the blank in ourselves with that closing line "they were something much worse, they were both......" =/ i'm assuming it's "broken harts" but I don't think that's worse than "monsters". i'm sure i'm overthinking, but disappointing wrap up for me

Nina Maria right, I had to rewind 2 times because I thought I missed hearing the answer. I guess we fill in the blank?

"I've always known. I've always felt something. It's unfortunate that it happened but I don't think there's anyone out there who could have stopped it"...(the last statement in the podcast from a "friend") What the actual f*@k?!! Ummm, yeah there were loads of people who could have stopped it...the adoption agencies could have vetted better and did thorough home visits, children's protective services could have done their job and made sure the allegations weren't true, and the police could have taken the reports of abuse seriously and acted accordingly. No, I absolutely do not accept no one could have stopped it, to do that is to overlook the problems that need attention: better adoption practices by agencies, along with intense scrutiny of children's aid workers and law enforcement when abuse is alleged. This is the saddest podcast I have listened to, God bless those poor children

I've enjoyed this series but feel the episodes are far too short. When time for ads and credits is taken out they really are very short and rather superficial documents. The story itself is, I believe, worth deeper and more comprehensive treatment.
