In part 3 of our Spooktober True Crime episode Danielle covers the case of the baby Candace Newmaker.

CONTENT WARNING: this case involves the torture and murder of a child.

Candace was an adopted foster child, with severe mental health needs, who was killed during a 70-minute attachment therapy session purported to treat reactive attachment disorder (RAD).

Candance’s adoptive mother, Jeane Newmaker, traveled to the Attachment Therapy mecca of the United States, Evergreen, Colorado to receive “treatment” during which Candace was forced to participate in a rebirthing ceremony and suffocated to death, leading to criminal convictions and changes in laws.
