2014 Shows

Dr. Phil continues his interview with Tommy, who accuses his ex-wife, Julia, and her new husband, Codey, of killing his 19-month-old son, Darby, and 4-year-old stepdaughter, Kiera -- an allegation the couple vehemently deny. Dr. Phil enlists the help of forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht to examine the autopsy reports of Darby and Kiera, who died three months apart, while in the care of Julia and Codey. What are his findings? And, hear from police -- are the investigations still open? Julia and Codey say they’re tired of being falsely accused, and they want to prove their innocence. When offered the opportunity to take polygraph tests to clear their names, will they accept?

Find out what happened on the show.

Dear Dr. Phil,

I am living in BELGIUM and I follow all your programs on TV. Deeply respect for you and your family !

I have followed the case as mentioned above. I will not judge anyone but one thing is for sure : this is really cruel and I am very surprised that this case is still not resolved after 4 years ??? I have my thoughts about this but as said "who am I am to judge".  I would however appreciate if I (and a lot of people) can read an update and result.

Kind regards Kathleen from BELGIUM

I would really love to see an update on this case. Personally, I think they should at least be ruled out by use of the polygraph.  Please show an update and to the father of Darby, please do not ever give up trying to get justice for these precious angels.

I also watched part 2 of this episode today on Dutch television. If the authopsy report had mentioned the bloodtest results and specifically the plasma vitamin C level and the whole blood histamin level it would have given a clue whether the vaccination was at the basis of the trauma that lead eventually to the death of these poor children. Scientists that have researched the shaken baby syndrom found that vitamin C was completely depleted and the child, s immune system was taking vitamin C from the collageen from the body, in other words, the skeleton. This causes the bones to weaken and eventually break. If this was the case here, why did the mother not take the polygraph test?

Don't be foolish btanne. It is obvious that these children are the victim of abuse. Vaccinations are not the cause of this type of subdural hematoma.  Stop using these poor children to make your point. These children have suffered a great deal of pain, and it is not because of the vaccinations. Sure, vaccinations can have some side-effects, but no side-effects of this matter.

There are many different types of hematomas. Are you seriously saying that you know it better than two doctors who have studied and studies to find out what happens in the human body? That they are more than a 100 percent sure that these types of subdural hematomas can absolutely not be caused by vaccinations, but by a blow to the head with a significant force? Are you really saying that they are wrong and a stupid shot causes a blow to the head which causes blunt trauma? If you don't want your kids vaccinated, thats fine, let them be sick, that's up to you. But don't use the death of these children to make your point. This is no time for propaganda, only time for the truth which the two pathologists and one pediatrician have explained to us. So be against vaccinations, fine. But leave these poor, abused, children out of it. By the way, the website you're directing to here.. I've read it and it is also pure propaganda. It doesn't even BEGIN to  raise questions about the performed autopsies or their conclusions, so once again stop it. There are NO vaccinations that cause this type of subdural hematoma, broken ribs,dozens of bruises and two burnmarks. Those are symptoms of abuse, not shots.

These poor children never even had a chance. Their lives were cut short way too early. I hope for the dad that the truth will come out soon.

If you ask me, the stepdad is highly suspect. He was very detached, did not seem to care at all, put on his pokerface. The blow to the head that caused the hematoma happened within two hours before they tried to wake Kiera up, and the only ones there were the mom and stepdad. I think the stepfather abused the children severely. I also think his wife knew but is also being abused by him and is therefore in his power. Which is why he could so very easily talk her out of a polygraph test. What normal mother would not want to fully cooperate to finding the cause of their childrens death? I can only hope that the truth will come out very soon..

Come on now, dont be stupid. is is a scientific fact that Kiera died because of a blow to the head with significant force. It is excluded that this can be the result of vaccinations. Just so you know, there are many types of hematomas, do you really think that you know it better than both doctors who performed and assessed the autopsy?

Stop treating vaccinations like leathal weapons and face the facts. Don't use these children to make your own point about vaccinations, that is just a discrase. If you don't want your kids to be vaccinated, fine, that's on you, let them get sick. However don't use the terrible death of two infants to prove your point. Their injuries (multiple) cannot be the result of vaccinations, period.

I'd love to see the vaccinations that cause broken ribs, this type of subdural hematoma, two burnmarks en dozens of bruises.

These poor children have been abused severely and it is very, very sad that their lives had to end so young. Hopefully the dad will find out who killed his children. But it is ibvious that it isn't because of vaccinations, but because of blunt headtrauma due to a blow to the head with significant force.

If you ask me, the stepfather is highly suspect. My bet is he abused the children and also abuses his wife, and therefore has her in his power so she'll go with everything he says.

Poor babies..

Today I saw this show in Holland. the mother can be roght about the vaccins, actually vaccins given to children can cause subdural hematoma and bone fractures. In Britain, USA and also in Holland there is a lot of research about vaccins, just because parents where accused of abuse, but in the end it was the vaccin which caused a lot of damage. In Holland they wrote an article about this:

Just because the parents didn't take the lie detector test, will not proff they are guilty of murdering there children....a lie detector test isn't 100 % reliable.

I believe that the mother boyfriend killed the kids and abused the mother as well. He didn't really say much meaning he didn't want to explain or show any emotions, also you can tell that the mother is really scared and afraid to really say what's going on around him as you seen her by herself with Dr.Phil the first thing was can you help me and she was willing to take the test so either she is taking up for him or she is scared of her boyfriend but you can tell by her actions she is hiding alot of things.
