Seth Bader and his wife, Vicki, moved to New Hampshire in 1992. When he decided he wanted out of the marriage, he started a campaign to ruin Vicki, by destroying her reputation, her self worth. His actions resulted in Vicki sinking into depression, attempting suicide and losing visitation with their sons. Seth proceeded to work on the boys to turn them against Vicki. When she began to pull her life together and ended up getting unsupervised visitation with their youngest son, he decided to kill her, using their oldest son as his accomplice.

As the summary says, this was a very bizarre crime. I imagine some could not believe a son turning against his mother, especially one that loved him after his previous mother did not treat him like a son. I can also think of some people with teenage sons nodding their heads and saying, “Teenagers!”

In keeping with the bizarre label, this crime could also have been confusing with all the people that eventually became involved it was a mess. It is a tribute to Kevin Flynn that he was able to keep the storylines straight. There were a couple of times where, this person said this, then later said this. I don’t know how he kept it straight, in the end you understood (as much as anyone could) what had happened and who was involved. You can also feel the frustration that not everyone involved got what they deserved.

Another fascinating true crime account from someone who someday may be as dear to me as M. William Phelps. ( )

What a very sad story. What poor Vicki went through. I feel so sorry for the children who were manipulated. ( )
