Disassociated: Christian Longo

In Episode 258

Christian Michael Longo was married at age nineteen and was a father of three by the time he was twenty-six.  Originally from Michigan and raised as a Jehovah’s Witness, Longo did not adapt well to his life as a husband and father.  His wife, MaryJane, stayed home with their children while Longo was expected to provide for their family.  But he quickly turned to a life of crime.

After getting into trouble for check fraud, Longo took his family on the run in a stolen minivan.  But after promising to turn over a new leaf, Longo continued to steal and scam for money.

The Longo family moved from Michigan to Ohio to Oregon.  Then their four-year old son Zachary and three-year old daughter Sadie were found dead in the waters of Lint Slough.  The bodies of MaryJane and their infant daughter Madison were recovered days later.

Join us at the quiet end today for the story of a young family destroyed by the evil acts of compulsive liar and manipulator Christian Longo.  The lives of this young family started out with hopes and aspirations but ended in tragedy and despair. The only one left to explain what happened was the one who could never be trusted or believed, but we can debate causations and examine missed opportunities in our efforts to understand the murders of MaryJane, Zachary, Sadie, and Madison Longo.
