Louisiana’s Connection To The New Netflix True Crime Doc
What an absolutely tragic tale. The new true crime documentary on Netflix, Sins Of Our Mother, has wrapped up their episodes, but the story isn't finished. It was actually pretty shocking to see such an in-depth look at this case, while the court proceedings are actively taking place.
But that's what Netflix has delivered with this intense look at these alleged murders.
I'm not going to spoil the series anymore than what you can see in the trailer. Well, outside of some names and relationship information needed to make these connections. It's actually nothing you couldn't have learned watching the national media coverage of this case. So, mild spoiler alert at best.
The story centers around Lori Vallow, who the national media named the "Doomsday Mom" during media coverage. It follows her family, faith, and the tragic deaths that surrounded her. It includes details on her multiple marriages, and odd pattern of behavior.
One of the other main people in the documentary is Lori Vallow's fourth husband, Charles Vallow...
We meet Charles right away in the first episode of the documentary. He comes across as a nice guy, good father, and patient. For the sake of spoilers, we won't go any deeper in Charles place in the story. But Charles is where Louisiana comes into the tale.
While watching Sins Of Our Mother, you will hear "Louisiana" and see some New Orleans Saints logos. Now, there are a lot of horrible things happening in the story, so you might not catch them, but they are there. Charles' family is the reason why. Because Charles is originally from Calcasieu Parish.
Charles Vallow was born in Lake Charles, Louisiana on August 17th, 1956. His mother was born in Washington Parish, and both of his parents final resting places are in Louisiana as well. Charles grew up in Louisiana before moving to Texas. Vallow also played college baseball at McNeese State University.
The documentary is getting incredible reviews online, with a 100% from critics on Rotten Tomatoes right now. Not to mention the documentary can be quickly watched in a single night.
