Train Wreck
This entire series thus far is setting the stage to make to perpetuate the Vaughn narrative that Kimberly killed her family and then herself. They go as far as calling her, “Monster Mommy.” It’s extremely one sided and the first three episodes is the Vaughn family bashing Kimberly and her parents.

Since when is it ok to create a podcast disparaging a murder victim? Because you looked at a photo of a convicted murderer and thought he couldn’t have done it because of a look in his eyes? Ridiculous and disrespectful. I hope the next episode is an apology to the family and anyone who listened.

Victim blaming
Christopher’s parents sound very judgmental, in the way they are accusing Kim’s parents of being. They hate the educated as much as they say her parents hate the uneducated. They sound like the typical “not my child” type of parents. I hope this shakes out less victim blame-y.
