This week on our Halloween Hangover edition we review the disgusting and warped story of Sylvia Likens. Imagine you're sixteen-years-old and left by your carney parents at a strangers house to be cared for. It's a simple deal, they send a few dollars to cover your expenses and you are looked after. But what if the money stopped coming in and the people that were looking after you didn't truly have you best interest in mind. What if they despised you and enjoyed watching you suffer. What if they took deep pleasure inflicting pain on you? In one of our most grueling conversations we trace over the torturous final month in the life of Sylvia Likens, in which atrocity after atrocity was committed against her.
