Early Life

Born Susan Leigh Vaughan on September 26, 1971, in Union, South Carolina. Smith had a troubled upbringing; her parents’ relationship was often violent and soon after their divorce, her father committed suicide. Her mother quickly remarried a rich businessman from her locality. The family shifted to their new house.

By the age of 16, she had noticed a shift in her stepfather’s demeanor. He was a sexual predator who frequently molest her. She tried to tell her mother about it, but Linda dismissed her. She then contacted the department of social services, but they were unable to assist her.

She was well-liked in high school. She was also one of the brightest students and was involved in a variety of extracurricular activities. She was known for being extroverted and outgoing. She was named “Friendliest Female” in her senior year of high school.

Her stepfather, on the other hand, continued to sexually abuse her. She soon turned to her school counselor, who contacted the civil services department. They offered assistance this time. Susan, on the other hand, declined due to her mother’s concerns about the family name being tarnished.

Susan began working at a local store after graduating from high school. It was later discovered that in the late 1980s, she had sexual relations with a married man, a younger coworker, and her stepfather all at the same time.

She had also attempted suicide when she was 13 years old. She tried again in 1988, following a breakup with the married man with whom she was having a sexual relationship. She overdosed on prescription pills and was admitted to the hospital.

The Rocky Marriage

However, as one relationship ended, another began to emerge. Her high school friend David Smith began working at her store, and the two began dating. They fell in love and decided to marry despite having no concrete means of survival. Susan married David in March 1991. The couple soon moved into his house.

David’s family was in turmoil at the time because his older brother had died a few days before and his parents had yet to recover from the loss. His father attempted suicide not long after David and Susan moved in. His mother relocated to a different city. As a result, the young couple was on their own.

When they married, Susan was already pregnant with David’s child, and their first son was born in October 1991. However, instead of bringing them closer together, the baby caused a schism between them. Susan would frequently ask her mother for money, which irritated David because he disliked Linda.

By early 1992, the couple had begun to drift apart. They split up soon after. During their separation, Susan dated other men. She discovered she was pregnant again in late 1992. Following this announcement, the couple decided to bury the hatchet and reunited shortly thereafter.

David and Susan continued to date other people over the next few months. However, their children were not affected because they received equal love from both parents.

Susan began a new job as a bookkeeper and met a wealthy young man named Tom Findlay. She seduced him, and they began dating soon after. The relationship, however, was mostly one-sided. While Susan was serious about Tom, he treated their relationship as a casual one.

Susan gradually became obsessed with Tom and revealed some shocking truths to him. She told him about her ongoing sexual affair with her stepfather, as well as her on-again, off-again relationship with her husband, David. What shocked Tom the most was her admission to having sexual relationships with Tom’s father. Tom was devastated and ended his relationship with her quickly.

She was depressed for several days and called Tom several times. Susan’s obsession became fatal when Tom refused to entertain her. She reasoned that if she told him everything, he would sympathize with her and accept her.

Murder of Her Sons

On October 25, 1994, Smith contacted the police saying she had been carjacked by an African American man who fled with her two young sons in the car. After she made emotional pleas on television for the safe return of her children, the incident gained media attention and sympathy from around the world.

However, nine days later, Smith admitted that she had pushed her car into nearby John D. Long Lake, drowning her sons, 3-year-old Michael and 14-month-old Alexander, who were strapped into their car seats inside.

Contempt for Smith was overwhelming, not only because of the racial tension ignited for the false accusation of a Black man but because her alleged motive was to get rid of her children in order to carry on a relationship with a wealthy man who wasn’t interested in a woman with sons.

Trial and Sentence

During her trial, Smith’s stepfather, Republican Party and Christian Coalition leader Beverly Russell, testified that he had sexually molested Susan when she was a teenager and again in the months leading up to her drowning the boys. She was spared the death penalty and sentenced to life in prison.

Smith is serving her sentence at Leath Correctional Institution in South Carolina and will be eligible for parole in 2024, after serving a minimum of 30 years.
