Vicki Bader’s divorce from her attorney husband Seth Bader was beyond contentious. Alimony and child custody issues persisted well after the break up. Vicki, emotionally fragile and at times suicidal, endured months of harassment and gaslighting by Seth and his toxic accomplices. But when Seth decided to involve their oldest son in his campaign to destroy Vicki, things took an ominous turn.
Join us at the quiet end for Gaslighting: The Extermination of Vicki Bader. Seth Bader was a terrible human being who would stop at nothing to destroy his ex-wife. After getting custody of their children, he withheld alimony payments, had her tires slashed, and even cooked her beloved parakeets in her oven.
More than anyone, the Bader’s oldest son Joey was put in the middle of his parents’ conflicts. Turned against his mother and living in fear of his father, Joey’s life would be upended by his own actions, done on behalf of Seth Bader. The plot to kill Vicki Bader included several people who either hated her or expected financial gain after her death. But sadly, Vicki never imagined that people could be so heartless as her killers were.
