“When I was in third grade, I was molested by a group of boys and an adult man that I should have been able to trust,” she says, adding that the abuse by the man went on “for quite some time.”
Later Crystal says, she found out that her best friend was murdered by a convicted serial killer, claiming, “He confessed that he had initially been after me.”
Fred acknowledges that “it was a horrendous thing” that happened to Crystal but says, “It’s 27 years later and it’s time for her to heal.”
“Well it’s past time for her to heal,” says Dr. Phil in the video above, “But that’s a lot easier said than done.”
