Might need a trigger warning with that (no pun intended).
There's always a story or two about parents killing their kids floating around the news media. It's almost always linked to mental heath issues but the media tend to initially class the tragedies as mother=sick, father=sicko.
The one that sticks in my head was Chris Benoit, mainly because I'm a wrestling fan. He was repeatedly called a monster until evidence was found about how severe the trauma to his brain had become over the years.
That's fucked up. Poor kid.
There are a lot of studies being done recently in an attempt to understand why such incidents occure. If you think about there is a very grim similarity in many of these crimes, as least by my observation.
