23-Year-Old Who Claims To Have Multiple Personalities Takes Drug Test

Dillon, 23, claims that he has as many as 20 different personalities that can come out at any time.

He punches walls,” Laurie says, adding that one time when she was driving on the freeway “Adam” grabbed the steering wheel and was exploding with anger for 45 minutes, forcing her to pull off the freeway. “’Adam’ is the one who hurts Dillon. One time, he knocked himself out.”

Laurie, who also claims her son suffers from schizophrenia, PTSD, OCD, ADHD and bipolar disorder, admits that she believes Dillon uses drugs and that he has overdosed multiple times. She says that after one overdose, he ended up in the hospital on a 5150 psychiatric hold, which led to her making a “suicide pact” with him.

“I went to him and we made a suicide pact that if at any time he was going to take his life or that I felt like I was going to, that we would do it together,” Laurie reveals. “I realize that’s very sick, but Dillon is my life. I would rather die than turn my back on my son. I will never turn my back on him.”

“My mother was the type of woman who would give to everyone. She was very sweet and kind,” says Angela. “But after my mother started to spend a lot of time with Art Schlichter, she became a different person. She was very cold. She was distant towards me.”

Seventy-three-year-old Anita claims that Schlichter conned her out of millions of dollars and forced her to scam friends and employees out of $500,000 and that she was too scared of repercussions to tell anyone about the situation.

“My daughter would ask me questions, but I had to lie to her because I couldn’t tell her what was going on, and I was even afraid to tell her because I didn’t know if she would confront Art,” Anita says. “I’ve shamed my daughter and I’ve shamed my family.”

“In less than one year, he had swindled me out of $3 million,” Anita says, claiming that she was afraid to tell anyone of the situation because she feared Schlichter’s possible repercussions.

“He said, ‘If you tell anyone, I will be gone, you will not get your money back, and I will spend it or you’ll never find me ever again. And it’s coming in, just be patient,’” Anita alleges, adding that she never saw any of the money she claims she was promised. “When I asked for the money, he would get so angry and cuss and carry on. I did not know where to turn because I was so ashamed and embarrassed.”

Honoring Chicago Police Officer Who Saved Four People And Their Pets From House Fire

Jennifer Jacobucci says her job as a police officer involves much more than just protecting and serving.

During her shift on June 21, 2016, she noticed a house fire as she was returning to her assignment at the Chicago O’Hare airport. Without hesitation, she went to the scene.

“The initial house where the call had come out was completely engulfed in flames, and it had already spread to the house to the north and the south of it,” Officer Jacobucci tells Dr. Phil on Thursday’s episode. “There were still people inside the house. There was a woman on the second floor with two small dogs, got her out. There were still people sleeping on the first floor, so got them out, and then started clearing the rest of the rooms to make sure that there was nobody else in there.”

The 10-year-veteran of the Chicago Police Department was treated for smoke inhalation and is hoping to return to work soon.

“That’s very true,” Officer Jacobucci replies. “There’s so much more to the job than just protecting and serving.”

Parents Claim Grandma Tricked Them Into Signing Over Custody Of Their Child To Her

Sam and Shannon claim Sam’s mother, Kim, tricked them into signing over guardianship of their son to her when he was 6 months old. They say for the past four-and-a-half years she’s been keeping the boy, Conrad, from them while raising him 600 miles from where they live, and that she will not return him unless they meet her “outrageous demands.”

“A month after I had Conrad, Kim tried to control every aspect of me being a mom,” Shannon claims. “She attacked my parenting style, didn’t like the diapers I used. She would come over and bathe Conrad because she said I wasn’t capable of doing it right.”

Kim, however, claims that her grandson was being raised in a home with maggots, moldy baby bottles and dirty dishes, so she was forced to take guardianship of the child.

“I felt like someone needed to step up and take care of this innocent baby, and if that meant I was being controlling and overbearing, then so be it,” Kim says.

“I believe perception is reality,” Dr. Phil tells Linda. “Your daughter believes that she has fault for her stepfather’s death. Your daughter believes that her boyfriend was shot in the face and killed and she’s lost and will never love again … She believes that she has no worth or value because she has been raped in your home, and that her sister came to you with a rumor about it, and nobody did anything, and she wanted somebody to do something. That’s what she believes. It doesn’t matter what happened; I’m telling you what she believes.”
