His ex-wife, Shauna Taylor, was diagnosed with Munchausen syndrome by proxy, and that’s when Bill says he learned she had been harming her children.
 
“The time that these poisonings occurred, I had been out of the home already for six months and I was working six days a week, 10 hours a day,” Bill says. “On the several visits to the emergency room, I was scratching my heading thinking, my gosh.
