psychopath-nightA film company from London came to interview me for the above named film about how having a psychopathic son had affected my life and my family.

I explained to them the “back story” of how I was afraid of Patrick because he had sent convicted pedophile Kenneth Hamilton to infiltrate my family like a Trojan Horse, and most likely to kill m, so that Patrick could inherit from our family trust, because if I died before my mother did, he would inherit, but if she died first (and she is elderly) then he knew he would get nothing. Nothing of my back story was shown or talked about in the film, though.

I found out about the plot and the fact that the “renter” who had rented a small house from me was a former cell mate of Patrick’s and a three time convicted pedophile,  molesting three little girls ages 9, 11, and 14. I fled my home because this man had the rest of my family under his “spell” and convinced them all that I was brain damaged or had a brain tumor.

Once I was gone, he went to “plan B” and started having an affair with my daughter-in-law, Laurel Alexander, and then when my oldest biological son found out about the affair and told his wife, Laurel,  “honey we will go to counseling and work it out” she stole $24,000 from my mother and bought two guns for her and Hamilton. Then  Hamilton tried to force his way into my son’s home with the gun locked and loaded in his hand as my son frantically called 911!

Fortunately, both Hamilton  and Laurel were convicted of felonies and went to jail/prison. My son divorced her and for a while he and my mom supported me wholeheartedly, but eventually my mother started reading Patrick’s begging and pleading letters that he had NOTHING to do with Hamilton’s behavior though he admitted Hamilton was a friend of his, and my mother started sending Patrick money again. So I started protesting Patrick’s paroles.

So now, I pretty much live in an armed camp, with security cameras every where and a gun on every flat surface and one on my body at all times. Patrick just got turned down for his third parole hearing, and got another three years before he can go back. My mother was born in 1929 so is getting on up in years, so it is even more important for him NOW to find one of his convict friends who is “out” of prison to come and put me under, before my mother passes away, in which case if she pre deceases me, he gets NOTHING.

We are not wealthy, but we did put the family farm into a trust so that upon the events of the death of my mom, my step father, my husband and myself that the sons could not sell or mortgage the farm but would have a place to live for the rest of their lives and a little bit of income. Hoping of course that Patrick would have “straightened up” but once I saw that he was not going to “reform” that he was actually proud of his crime of murder, I determined he would not get a dime if I outlived my mother. I believe that was his reason for sending a person to kill me.

Here’s the link to the you tube version of the PSYCHOPATH NIGHT… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pROu77TvZzA I’m about an hour and 10 minutes into the film.

  1. My 15 seconds of fame

  2. I will have to watch it when I get a chance. Sometimes it is better that there is not too much ‘back story’ to clog the minds of the viewer, but also to offer you, the parent, spouse, child or friend of the offender.

    • Sorry, I clicked post, before I had typed out my whole train of thought… lol

      …but also to offer you, the parent, spouse, child or friend of the offender some privacy. I can respect that. Not everyone needs to know everything.

  3. Well, I think it would have helped if they had said “she believes her son is trying to find someone to kill her” otherwise, how could he be a “danger” to me with him IN prison, it sort of I thought made me look unrealistically “paranoid”

    As far as my “back story” you know I am at a point in life now that I could give a rat’s hind parts about who knows what. You know, I am not the one who should feel shame, but my son should, and he sure does not…he feels pride.

    But over all I thought the film was interesting and that it might capture the audience’s attention

  4. I liked the film, Joyce. I don’t think it made you look paranoid at all. What they were trying to do was to juxtapose your position with the mother who was still trying to support her psychopath son. A film about psychopaths would not be complete without a section on mothers, since psychopaths all blame their mothers for everything.

    So I think that’s why they left out the piece on Hamilton, since it would take the story on a different trajectory. That’s the thing about film, it has a limited time frame and they need to say what needs to be said at that point.

    On the negative side, it really did leave out a lot of information and is more about sensationalizing psychopathy. That said, it was very effective. I know this because on the day it came out in Britain, my site got hammered with google searches from Europe. Stats showed a huge avalanche of traffic for several days. People were trying to learn more about psychopaths because of this TV show. So I’m glad of that.

  5. It’s a tricky path, doing any kind of interview, be it for a movie, documentary, tv shows or whatnot. The guys in the editing room can make you look like things you’re certainly not. Leaving out some details to ‘help you’ save face in one respect, may make you come across as any number of things and not usually in a flattering way.

  6. I knew there was some risk in going for the interview and having no control over how I was presented. They did express worry about accusing Hamilton of being sent to kill me because he was never CONVICTED of that…and I know that there are time constraints.

    I also know that the closer you are to any news report, the more you know it is usually not all that close to the truth so I take all news reporting and journalism with a LARGE grain of salt. LOL Even on a low sodium diet. LOL

    The main reason I wanted to do the film though is that it would “legitimize” me if I had to use the part of the film about me to show the parole board. My attorneys said they wouldn’t watch more than about 3-5 minutes of video but you know, that’s enough I think so I have the AMMO I need for the next parole hearing.

    So I did get something “out” of the interview even though it wasn’t exactly like I would have wanted.

    I do hope the film does generate people’s interest in learning about psychopaths. This site got hit hard by people looking up my story from Great Britain as soon as the film came out.

  7. I got a chance to watch the film all the way thru. Your segment was very tastefully done. You appear prepared, not scared. Good for you!

    Sometimes the reality tv and the documentaries can portray people in a not so favorable light to help push their agenda. This was not so in this film. Kudos to the film crew, editing and everyone involved on that.

    One thing that caught my attention in the beginning when they featured Charles Albright. His piercing, unwavering stare. It’s as if he was so intensely focused on the interviewer, as if searching for any shred of a weakness he could use against him. Just Creepy!

  8. Thanks, Phoenix, my own agenda was to have on film a segment that if I had to I could show to the public or to the parole board or the governor’s office….anything to help keep Patrick in prison. I think it more or less accomplished that.
