Murder in the Suburbs

On an early June morning in 2007, 32-year-old Chris Vaughn was found limping away from his SUV with two non-fatal gunshot wounds. His children, 12-year-old Abigayle, 11-year-old Cassandra, and 8-year-old Blake, were found dead, seated together in the rear passenger seat, each shot twice. The body of Chris’ wife, Kimberly, was in the front passenger seat, slumped over the center console with a single contact gunshot wound under her chin. Chris’ handgun was found on the floorboard near her feet. Five years later, a jury convicted Chris of murdering his family, and he is now serving four life sentences. Chris’ parents, Gail and Pierre, sit down for their first television interview with Dr. Phil to tell him why they believe their son is innocent.

Murder in the Suburbs: Inside the SUV

Dr. Phil continues his conversation with Chris Vaughn’s parents, Gail and Pierre, who say they believe their son is innocent of committing the murders of their three grandchildren and daughter-in-law. Chris recently spoke out about the horrific morning of June 14, 2007, for the first time, when he sent Gail and Pierre a letter giving his explanation on what happened. For the past 14 years, private investigator Bill Clutter has been investigating the case and claims, with the help of Chris’ letter, he now has the answers in hopes of getting Chris out of prison. Bill shows what he believes happened inside that SUV. If Chris didn’t commit these murders, then who did and how? Also, hear from Chris Regis, the former Assistant State’s Attorney who was a member of the prosecution team in Chris’ case. He says Chris Vaughn is right where he should be.

“Stop My Brother’s Idiocy”

Carlea wrote into the show desperate for Dr. Phil’s help because she claims her brother, Jay, is an egotistical, untruthful narcissist who physically abused the mother of his child, Cassie. However, Jay denies that he’s physically abusive. Carlea says her nephew, Ky, deserves better, and Jay needs to be Ky’s father 100 percent of the time; not after the next girl, the next party, or the next group of what she calls “idiots” he wants to associate with. Jay and Cassie both agree they do not know how to co-parent, and the only one they trust for advice is Dr. Phil.

Exclusive: Finding Missing Mom, Andrea Knabel

On August 13, 2019, 37-year-old Andrea Knabel, an outgoing and devoted mother of two who volunteered for a group that helps find missing people, disappeared. Nancy Schaefer, the founder of the organization Missing In America, says she became best friends with Andrea when they began working together and now goes through daily emotional pain while searching for her friend. Nancy says it wasn’t until she hired retired Homicide Detective Joe Fanciulli that she learned that Andrea was hiding several secrets, including that she was a meth user and dealer. Joe says Andrea’s risky behavior likely led to her disappearance. Andrea’s father, Mike Knabel, and younger sister, Erin, say that they have been devastated by the disappearance of Andrea and won’t stop looking for her.
