True Crime Uncensored with Burl Barer & Mark Boyer

One day, Andrea Yates was a loving mother. The next, the nation was shocked by the death of her five innocent children... The 911 call that shocked the country. "I just killed my children." Why were they killed? On June 20, 2001, in a middle-class Houston suburb, Andrea Yates and her husband Russell, a NASA engineer, prepared for the routine week-day ahead. But before the morning was over, tragedy would strike the quiet family and turn the day into a nightmare. Shortly before 10 a.m., Andrea calmly summoned the police with a grim confession... One by one, Andrea Yates' children, ages 6 months to 7 years, had been drowned in their bathtub. No one who knew Andrea could picture the devoted mother capable of such an unbelievable crime or imagine the terror in the eyes of her trusting children. As their father struggled between overwhelming grief and loyalty to his imprisoned wife, an outraged nation struggled with an unfathomable question... Breaking Point provides a harrowing portrait of the suffocating darkness at the heart of one all-American family, and exposes the private demons that pushed a mother over the edge.

In Part 2 we talk about the victims, the trial, the husband, the spiritual adviser, and the best friend. The 911 call Andrea made was monotone and matter of fact. This case is a tragedy no matter if you hate her for what she did, or you feel sorry for her. She is living in a mental facility in Kerrville, TX and will most likely spend the rest of her life there. If you or someone you know if suffering, please reach out and get the help you need.

Andrea Yates - Part 1 (Houston, TX)

Texas Wine and True Crime

This week we are discussing Andrea Yates. Andrea drowned all 5 of her children after her husband Rusty left for work. Andrea was diagnosed with postpartum psychosis, schizophrenia, and depression after the birth of their fourth child. Going against everything doctors and psychiatrists suggested, they had child number 5. Six months later, she killed all of her kids. This is the tragic story of 5 children whose lives could have been saved if only just one things would've been done right. This week Chris gave Tumbleweed Smith a treat with his charcuterie board. We enjoyed wine from Edge of the Lake Vineyard and Sangria from our friends at Hill Country Wine Works. We polished them both off with smiling faces and full bellies. Go see our friends Edge of the Lake & Hill Country Wine Works. If you want to help support the show, you can join us on Patreon!
