Mommy blogger Lacey Spears made headlines when she was
charged with the murder of her five-year-old son, Garnett.
Prosecutors alleged that she had poisoned him with high
concentrations of salt through his stomach tube. How could
a mother do such a thing to her own son? This is the
shocking true story.
To the outside world Lacey had seemed like a loving,
concerned mother, regularly posting updates on social
media about her son’s harrowing medical problems. But in
reality, Lacey was a text book case of Munchausen syndrome
by proxy. From the time he was an infant, Lacey
deliberately made Garnett sick to elicit sympathy from
medical professionals as well as her hundreds of followers
on Facebook, Twitter, and her own blog. When a Westchester
County jury found her guilty of killing Garnett in April
2015, she was sentenced to twenty years to life in prison.
My Sweet Angel is the definitive definitive account—
featuring interviews with Lacey’s family, the
investigators who broke the case, even Lacey herself—of
extraordinary case that shocked the world.
