"My boyfriend died - and I learned he had a secret twisted life"
The autumn had been tough, between the morning sickness and her boyfriend, Paul*, working away from home.But Jessica Boynton, 34, was excited for Thanksgiving. She’d finally get to introduce her handsome contractor boyfriend (and the father of her baby) to her entire family at their annual gathering in North Carolina. She knew they’d love him almost as much as she did.
Theirs had been a whirlwind romance. They’d met on Craigslist, of all places, seven months earlier, in May 2019, after Jessica gave up on dating apps. For their first get-together, Paul, 38, took Jessica and her three-year-old daughter to the movies. Soon he was whisking her off for weekends in Charleston, South Carolina. Their chemistry was electric.
Although Paul lived in South Carolina and travelled all over the South for work, the couple started talking about moving in together. By September, Jessica was pregnant; her daughter called Paul “Daddy.”
The day before Thanksgiving, Paul texted that he was stuck at a house remodel three hours away. By noon the next day, he still hadn’t arrived, blaming a burst pipe at his job site. “That house had better be flooded,” Jessica replied. “Water needs to be pouring out the windows.” It didn’t escape her that he’d used this excuse once before, when he was scheduled to meet her mum and sisters for the first time. As her family sat down for dinner without him, Jessica felt humiliated. “This is it,” she texted. “I’m done.”
Paul showed up the following Monday to try to win her back over lunch. But after that, he went dark, ignoring texts, emails, and calls from Jessica and the lawyer she hired to draft a child-support agreement for their unborn baby. Then in late December, on Facebook, Jessica saw a shocking post: Paul had died. His pickup truck had flipped over on a highway in Georgia, crushing him.
