    That whole thing is disturbing. This smacks of child abuse by the parents, Leslie and Chris Wilfred.

    Munchausen's and Munchausen By Proxy are form of narcissism. It is combination of Narcissistic, Borderline, and Histrionic Personality Disorder. It shows similarity to Borderline Personality Disorder, which is seen in someone like Casey Anthony, Lori Drew, or Diane Downs. Borderline is a form of narcissism mixed with a highly distorted image of self and others mixed with fear of rejection and extreme rage. No surprise they are abusive to their children. They do anything for attention including abusing their children.

    Munchausen's and Munchausen By Proxy are also a form of abuse and bullying.

    Wow! I've never heard of it involving a whole family before-including all the kids and imaginary ones! Guess she didn't harm the imaginary ones because she'd be harming herself.
    What a sicko! Can't believe it took this long to discover her. She blew it when she called CPS on the step-son N. Did she think she was so convincing they'd automatically believe her??? Shades of Jodi Arias. These kids are lucky to be alive and her husband is stupid.:banghead::banghead:

    Nathan is the hero of this story. He saved his step siblings by getting into trouble. Thank God someone got suspicious and followed up. Cruel isn't even enough to describe what was done to the kids.

    Father of the boy made to sleep in the box should have gotten prison time.

    Munchausen's and Munchausen By Proxy is hard to detect. They are also pathological liars, which is often seen in Narcissistic, Borderline, and Histrionic Personality Disorder. You are right it does have shades of Jodi Arias. I would also say Casey Anthony, Jerry Sandusky, and Lori Drew.

    I think my jaw dropped while reading that whole story.


    How does someone get away with that for so long? I don't understand the child dying of Leukaemia and getting chemotherapy, I mean, wouldn't it have been obvious that she wasn't receiving chemo when her hair stayed in and she wasn't throwing up and losing weight? Or did she actually give the child chemo-like drugs? :( I don't even want to think about it, thank GOD those children are safe now, I hope they can get past having such a messed up childhood.
