  1. I believe the murder of attorney Larry McNabney by his sociopathic wife is extremely reflective of the 1990s, which was the decade of fast money combined with little or no concern for the long term consequences of such revolting behavior. I have a family that behaves in exactly the manner. I saw the movie ‘Lies My Mother Told Me’. I felt I was watching my own family, and what they have disintegrated to.
    Larry McNabney and this woman had a very toxic relationship that was definitely headed down the path of destruction. He was taken in by her charm, and he enabled her at his own peril. I guess pathetic people are very good at extracting sympathy that moves the fashionable set to merely let their crimes just slide.

  3. I don’t believe Sarah killed Larry. I believe Laren acted alone then forced Sarah to help dispose of the body, only to end up doing it herself. Glad she’s out of prison finally

    • Sorry but Sarah was the one that started the thoughts of killing Larry. If you had ever met these two women you would know that Sarah controlled Laren. Laren controlled Larry. and Larry hated Sarah.

  7. I get the best friend angle but sleeping in the sameness bed in the hotel I know they had sexual relationship. This plot is no different than a male female love triangle that planned the murder of the wife or husband…

    Two hot woman yes!
