“My stepmom, Toni, pretended to be my dad through email, and it was, honestly, believable,” Lance says. “I’m still confused at when she took over, because some emails, they sounded so much like him.”
 
Lance says that Toni even showed up at his boot camp graduation. “It seemed like she was being supportive, even though she had already murdered my dad,” he says. “I’ve been pretty trapped, recently, trying to figure out everything and why Toni would do what she did.”
