She meets John Meehan, a handsome man who seems to check all the boxes: attentive, available, just back from a year in Iraq with Doctors Without Borders.

Reported and hosted by Christopher Goffard from the L.A. Times.

Heather’s Review:

I love a good catfish story. I’ve watched every episode of MTV’s Catfish and probably every episode where Dr. Phil tries to convince a middle-aged woman that she’s being conned for her money. Dirty John is the ultimate catfish story, and if you love them as much as I do, this is one you’ll have to hear to believe. It has everything from deception to murder. It’s very easy to listen to and hard to turn off.

I give Dirty John 5 out of 5 stars.
