They are, after all, a matter of public record. Whether related to the victim or to the perpetrator, the family members involved lose someone. I genuinely felt great empathy watching this, primarily for the victims. They are so dangerous, because they are beyond stupid. Revealing for the first time how and why it happened filmmaker J.
Overall it told this unfortunate story well. Why were they not arrested for not stopping it or at least not reporting what was going on? Then, when she found out that Vera was pregnant with a baby girl, Cheri knew that she had to possess her. This was one of the most infuriating documentaries I have ever watched. If anything, some authorities should be held responsible as well. I was a victim of Stockholm syndrome at the time, and felt powerless to speak up. Daniel had recently got out of jail and was staying at the Brooks home.
Feel free to introduce the group to your true crime podcast, book, or blog. Can anything be done to seek criminal charges against this family? I reported the rape, and did the rape kit. I have the time right now. But it all ends up feeling like you're sitting in their living room, surrounded by all of them, and being bombarded with the story of every extenuating circumstance surrounding this woman's murder and having to do your best to make sense of it all. David Assael This memorial website was created to remember our dearest Vera Jo Riegle who was born in Ohio on July 11, 1986 and passed away on March 28, 2011.
Cheri Brooks is the most disgusting pig of all of them! The way it's filmed is also completely all over the place. Then, one cold winter night, they took Vera out for a walk, arriving back to the Brooks home without her. Pass it by on Amazon. But don't be a jackass. Oh, and one word to almost everyone in the film.
Wouldnt have mattered however after the rape i was the one who gave him to the police. I actually felt like I had to bathe after watching this. Instead, it was content to sensationalize a contingent of vile, gross, disturbed, inbred people and their brutal, impoverished way of life. The remaining Brooks boys, Cheri, Bixler, and Peters planned the murder of Vera. Not to mention the many other incidents of abuse that they all watched Vera endure. One last note: I am adopted as well. Bixler got a sentence of 40 years and Peters received a sentence of 23 years.
It seems that the family is so inmeshed and many people are to blame for why this woman is dead. While one can glean much sympathy for the victim of the crime regardless of the skill behind the filmmaking, the documentary's amateurish way of presenting the narrative felt, for lack of a better word, wrong, and its approach was frankly exploitative of mentally, socially and financially troubled individuals, many of which hadn't much relation to the events. Always message the mods instead of attacking users in public. It's wonderful this truth is out there for Vera since she wasn't strong enough to defend herself from this horrible family. I'd love to see a part 2 with the rest of the interviews with these monsters. Miles for a job well done.

In the meantime, Vera continued to live with the Brooks clan, in a home where a pig also lived and was allowed to defecate where it wished. Vera Jo was basically a servant and scapegoat for the family and despite police calls and numerous people knowing that she was being abused and this is all from a family that had a pig that lived in the house and was allowed to defecate anywhere it wished , when she was murdered people reacted with a mixture of surprise and we saw that coming. They all abused and murdered Vera. She's as horrible a person as it gets - her children Scottie, Michael, Maria, Joshua, and little Cheri were all taken away from her and all molested by her except for the youngest, who was taken immediately after her birth.
I very much hope that has been reviewed and curtailed since! They witnessed the crimes visited upon her and did nothing. This was not the fault of the doc itself, rather, I reference comedian Ron White's most popular monologue. And they were all afraid of some morbidly obese bitch that didn't have any feet. In fact, this is one of the points I wish had been further explored as well. Many of the details came to light thanks to filmmaker J. Vera Jo Reigle 24 was brutally murdered on the night of March 26th, 2011.
All the other various girlfriends, friends, and relations that watched the abuse and listened to plans of murder? Unfortunately, to understand the verbiage of those interviewed was difficult at best, but the narrative did a great job explaining the points of interest. This isn't an easy movie to watch, based on the subject matter. Revealing for the first time how and why it happened, filmmaker J. Cheri was a domineering crazy woman who controlled everyone around her. Their leader is Cheri Brooks, mother of 9, a really frightening woman who is also wheelchair bound.
