Relationship therapist and TV Host Dr. Laura Berman and her husband, Sam Chapman, are living a parent’s worst nightmare. On February 7, 2021, Dr. Berman says she walked into her 16-year-old son, Sammy’s, bedroom to see him dying on the floor. After their son’s death, they learned he had communicated with a drug dealer on a social media site, bought a pill, and had it delivered to their home.
“There was nothing that would have given us a tip that our son was up in a room on Snapchat communicating with a drug dealer,” says Sam.
