We Thought We Knew You
From one of America’s most celebrated true crime authorities, New York Times bestselling journalist and creator of the #1 podcast “Paper Ghosts,” M. William Phelps, the chilling investigation into the mysterious 2015 poisoning of a woman in upstate New York and a family plunged into a nightmare of backstabbing and vengeance.
In July 2015, Mary Yoder returned home from the chiropractic center she operated with her husband, Bill, complaining she felt unwell. Mary, health-conscious and vibrant, was suddenly vomiting, sweating, and weak. As her mysterious illness continued to rapidly progress, Bill rushed her to the ER, but within forty-eight hours, she was dead.
In the weeks following her death, Mary’s grief-stricken family received startling news from the medical examiner: Mary had been deliberately poisoned with an extremely toxic chemical. Another bombshell followed when the local sheriff’s office received an anonymous tip that Mary’s 24-year-old son, Adam, had poisoned his mother. But after Adam is arrested, investigators turn to a different person of interest.
Adam’s ex-girlfriend, pretty and popular Kaitlyn Conley, worked at the Yoders’ clinic. She’d even been at Mary’s bedside during those last terrible hours. Still, some spoke of her talent for manipulation and a history of bizarre, rage-fueled behavior against anyone who dared to reject her…
Renowned investigative journalist M. William Phelps details this incredible story piece by piece, revealing a heartless plan of revenge—a scheme that would tear a family apart, divide a community, and result in two gripping, high-profile trials.
