What a great response, thank you. This guy is probably just like you mentioned. Funny, out going, maybe even a touch flirtatious. Boy, oh boy! He sure fooled 'em allSometimes. We have a cultural predisposition to believe that "false allegations" are common, which they aren't, and these perps tend to be charming, or else they could never get away with all the horrible things they do. Definitely some of these scumbags are able to turn their current partner against "the crazy ex" and make it seem like she was just trying to ruin his life out of spite or get ahold of his money or whatever. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned dates back to 1697! We've been programmed to believe women and children are vindictive liars, always going after poor, innocent men.
We also have to remember, not everybody is a websleuth! I googled the heck out of my current husband, and checked his criminal record, all the things, especially because I have little ones. But I've had acquaintances not react well to that: "Wow, calm down there bunny-boiler, you did what? Little bit psycho there."
It's because of my sleuthing, I found out there was a child sex offender two blocks away in my affluent former neighborhood. I watched my kids like a hawk! But the dude's wife? Apparently did not care one bit or somehow didn't know even though the offenses (getting two teenagers drunk and molesting them) happened while they were married. He died of cancer about a year and half later, and the wife wrote an absolutely glowing obituary about him and his "valiant battle against cancer."
I also had a friend get engaged to a guy who had another fiance! His whole family and circle of friends knew this was going on and felt like it was a perfectly fine way for this guy to carry on his affairs. They all lied to both women and covered for him!
So sadly, some people are just ignorant, and others have extremely questionable values. We don't know what the case was with Holly, but it resulted in her and her family being victims of the most horrific outcome that could happen.
