Sick Unsettling Movie

Something about this Documentary makes me feel sick like looking into the eyes of a sick pedophile

John DuPont strikes an uncanny resemblance to Robert Durst (The Jinx) Even with the same looks and mannerisms

Cant understand how people could be so desperate to be friends with some old loser for money

and the most sickening of the whole story is Valentin Yordanov What a low life His "friend" gets killed and he doesn't stand by the family instead profits of it

This documentary shows the very worst of human existence
