          Headline Horror Stories

          December 15, 2008

          Joined by Nancy Grace from Headline News, children’s rights attorney Paul Mones and criminologist Dr. Denise Boots, Dr. Phil delves into recent horrific headlines: a starved and beaten teen escaping from his alleged torturers, an 8-year-old boy arrested for allegedly killing his father and another man, and two anchorwomen found dead in their homes.  

          Tortured Teen

          Recently voted the second-safest city in Northern California, the town of Tracy was shocked to learn about a teen boy who was held captive, beaten and starved for over a year before he escaped. 

           “If they are convicted, may they rot in hell.”

          Parricide by an 8-Year-Old?

          In St. John, Arizona, police talk with an 8-year-old boy about the shooting death of his father and another man. See the child allegedly confess during his interrogation. Was the murder retaliation to abuse? And, how will he be sentenced?

          Are there warning signs before something like this happens? 

          False Confession

          An estimated 200,000 kids are tried, sentenced or incarcerated as adults every year in the United States. Tyler was a 13-year-old honor student with no history of violence when he was arrested and charged with the murder of his sister’s ex-husband. Tyler confessed to a crime he didn’t commit, was charged as an adult and sentenced to life in prison.  

          “She told me I would get a slap on the wrist.” 

          Chilling Similarities

          Anne Pressly and Jennifer Servo were two beautiful young newscasters brutally attacked in their homes. Were they victims of random robberies gone wrong or are the chilling similarities of their murders the sign of a serial killer?

          Find out how you can help find a killer.
