Episode 106 - Train Tracks: The Murder of Vera Jo Reigle
Vera hadn't had it easy; she was a vulnerable woman who had coped with ADHD, serious learning difficulties and sexual abuse all her life. At the age of 22 she began dating a 16 year old boy named Zachary Brooks. And while this may sound predatory, it wasn't Vera who was the dangerous one. It was the matriarch of the Brooks family - Cheri Brooks aka "Sugar Babe".
When Vera got pregnant, Cheri's determination to meet her grandchild created a horrifyingly dangerous situation for the young mother.
