On the show Most Evil, the forensic psychiatrist Dr. Michael Stone (who developed a scale to measure evil, if that can even be a thing) put her into the highest category of evil.
What’s even crazier is that after all this, she apparently just stopped. The family of the woman she cared for in Salt Lake City could not believe she was arrested — to them, she’d never been anything but helpful (though I’d love to interview the woman she was actually caring for…but that’s another story altogether!).
