Dr. Richard Sharpe could be described as many things, genius, arrogant, anti-social, successful, cruel. Richard was raised in a highly abusive household. He stereotypically continued the abuse, hitting and tormenting his wife and children. The fact that Richard graduated from medical school, while constantly abusing his family, highlights his complicated genius. Karen Sharpe was Richard's high school sweetheart, she suffered severe abuse for decades. Richard's growing fortune was not enough to keep his demons at bay. Karen Sharpe finally had enough of being abused, she was planning to divorce. That meant Karen would be entitled to half of Richard's successful businesses. Richard couldn't have that and he did the unspeakable, in an ill-conceived murder plot.
