Call in to speak with the host
Tonight's special guest is Eve Carson from Indianapolis, Indiana, a true crime author and whistle blower, who's recent book is "Mommy's A Mole," the story of the still-unresolved 1981 murder of her sister-in-law, Joan Webster. Our show will focus, however, on how Eve's own children became abuse victims right under her nose! "Behavioral changes in my children were the first sign of trouble," she says. Family counselors involved with the family fragmented communication and complicated the issues. After the discovery of her daughter's written allegations of sexual abuse by her father, numerous professionals and law enforcement were involved. The system failed the victims. A mother trying to protect her children, Eve became a victim herself, alienated from her children by the paternal family. She'll discuss the dysfunctional system and the difficulty to identify abusers. False reports of abuse in our society leave real victims vulnerable and deny them the proper support for healing. The tendency to shun and vilify someone coming forward compounds the abuse for the children and the alienated parent. Eve learned the behaviors, not words, of the alleged offender and the victims are the key to understanding the truth. She writes, "Being vocal is critical to help victims of abuse. I look forward to working with you and continuing to bring awareness to a problem that scars so many lives. There are so many silent victims." She continues, "I want that part of my experience to be out there. When the system failed, it left my children without the love and support they need. It also opened my eyes to the patterns of abuse in the family. Support groups need to be better educated." See her BLOG
