117: Oxygen's Dirty John: The Dirty Truth (Part 2)


This is part 2 of our coverage. To hear episode 1, go here!

When Debra Newell met John Meehan on dating site for the 50+ crowd, he seemed too good to be true. A handsome, fit, successful doctor? She was interested. But, beginning with their first date, there were warning signs...something wasn't quite right here. Debra ignored her instincts and allowed him to move quickly. He moved in with her after a few weeks and convinced her to marry him after just two months. All the while, her adult children begged her to pay attention to the red flags, lies, and abusive behavior.

In part 2, Debra finally leaves John. Fearing for her life, she goes in to hiding. But it's not Debra that John tries to kill, instead, he goes after his daughter, Tera.
