In the late 1980's Tanya Reid was found guilty in Iowa of Child Endangerment for attempting to smother her son, Michael. While lawyers prepared for the Iowa trial they discovered that Tanya had had an infant daughter who had died of "SIDS" after numerous calls of a "child not breathing" to her home in Texas. While Tanya was serving her sentence, the lawyers in Iowa pleaded with people in Texas to reopen the case. Shortly before Tanya was released from prison, Texas charged her with murder. After rejecting a plea bargain, Tanya Reid is now serving a 40 year sentence in Texas. ( )

Sie lockte viele Männer an.

So mancher glaubt', er könnt' sie haben -
Wie viele hat sie wohl begraben?

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312998031, Mass Market Paperback)

In and out of hospitals since birth, angelic nine-month-old Morgan Reid finally succumbed to what appeared to be Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Morgan's Texas-born mother Tanya, a nurse and devoted wife, pulled up stakes with her grieving husband Jim, and moved on. It was the best way to put the past behind them. Until their son Michael, a boy who by all accounts was terrified of his mother, began showing signs of the same affliction that stole the life of his baby sister...

First, the suspicion: Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy. Then, Tanya was charged and convicted with felony child abuse of her son. She was later tried and ultimately convicted for first degree murder of Morgan. It would become a landmark trial that unfolded in a series of reversals and bizarre twists of fate as it gradually revealed another side of Tanya Reid-of her own troubling childhood and the dark secrets that drove a woman to the cruelest deception of all...
