Postpartum Psychosis: The Andrea Yates Case

In Episode 72

Andrea Yates confessed to drowning her five children in their bathtub at home on June 20, 2001. She had been suffering for some time with postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis.   In her 2002 trial, the district attorney in asked for the death penalty. She was ultimately found competent to stand trial and convicted of capital murder. After the guilty verdict, but before sentencing, the state abandoned its request for the death penalty, and she was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 40 years. Later, the verdict was overturned on appeal and the Texas jury in her retrial found that Yates was not guilty by reason of insanity.
Join us at the quiet end for a frank and in-depth exploration of Andrea’s case, the controversy surrounding her husband’s supportiveness, and the science of postpartum psychosis.  An Austin beer is reviewed and recommended.

  • (P.S. Dick, Uinta is pronounced “you-INN-tah”; just insert the “inn” syllable between the U and the tah in “Utah.” Another tough one here is Tooele, “too-ill-ah”.)

  • I’ve clicked on the title “A Husband’s Rage; the murder of Rachel O’Reilly,” and when I click the play button, Susan Smith’s case begins. This happened on another older episode that I’d hoped to listen to.
    Perhaps when you have time you could check it out and make sure the older titles are matched up with the correct content? I’d appreciate it, now that I’m finally a TIE-GRABBER, I want to watch every episode I’ve missed!
