Dr. Phil: Season 12, Episode 175
Two years ago, Bailey says she woke up to a gun pressed to her head during a terrifying home invasion and kidnapping. She says she and her roommate, John, were tied up, blindfolded and driven into the desert, where their abductors brutally beat and tortured John — and then left them stranded in the middle of the night. Bailey says she was able to break free and run for help. Now, Bailey says she’s struggling to recover from the horrific event, and her life has fallen apart. How can she heal from such a traumatic experience? Then, in the wake of the Ariel Castro kidnappings, police in Cleveland dug further into other missing girl cold cases in the area, and on October 10, 2013, found the skeletal remains of 18-year-old Christina Adkins, who disappeared in 1995. Christina’s boyfriend at the time and father of her unborn baby, Jose, was the prime suspect for nearly two decades, until another man, Elias Acevedo, pleaded guilty to her murder, among other crimes. Dr. Phil is joined by Jose and his family, to share how the cloud of suspicion has affected his life. Why do they say Adkins’ family is still accusing Jose? Dr. Phil brings both sides together in search of answers. Can they foster a peace and find closure? This program contains mature subject matter. Viewer discretion advised.
