This Day in Pop Culture for October 25

Susan Smith

1994: Susan Smith was a Bad Mother

Susan Smith reported that her two children were taken from her when her car was carjacked on this day in 1994 in South Carolina. Authorities searched, but could not find the children or even the car. Nine days later, Smith recanted her story stating that there was no carjacking and that it was she who drove her car into the John D. Long Lake in hopes of drowning her children. The story gets worse. Smith was having an affair with a man who didn’t want children and she felt that by eliminating them was the way to keep her relationship.
