    Done well as it could be, given that no one understands the motivations for David and Louise Turpin's actions. Personally, I think Louise Turpin was horribly damaged but what sounds like prolonged molestation by "a wealthy relative" which is a reference not hard to work out as her grandfather. What David Turpin's excuse is I have no idea. Will be fascinating to find out what drove these two. On another note, how is it that people still have problems with plural vs. singular verb conjugations and when to use an adjective or adverb? I'm talking about one of the Interviewees in particular.
