Mary Hamer, a Florida radiologist and total fucking nutcase has, in what she believes to be a spiritual mission, donated over one hundred thousand dollars to the legal council of Joran Van Der Sloot, the Dutch citizen accused of the murders of both Stephany Flores and Natalee Holloway. Despite Van Der Sloot's admission of guilt in the case of Flores, Hamer continues to believe his innocence, claiming that several conspiracies led to him pleading guilty.
Through Van Der Sloot and Hamer's correspondence, it becomes clear how distorted Hamer's perspective is. While, to the outside eye, Van Der Sloot's letters are evidence of his obvious grifting and malevolently opportunistic nature, Hamer sees it as a reason to trust him.
Hamer's interview with Anderson Cooper becomes even more depressing— a challenge when you're already discussing the senseless deaths of two women— once you realize that this is a woman much more in need of psychological help than she is of a public forum in which to tout her insane and offensive theories.
