The Babysitter’s Secrets: The Murder of Cherry Walker

In Episode 157

Cherry Walker was a trusting, uncommonly innocent young woman with a developmental disability. When her neighbor Kim Cargill brought her son to Cherry to babysit, Cherry didn’t know enough to question her. Mentally still a child herself, Cherry played alongside the child, sharing her food and her small apartment with him. Kim took full advantage of Cherry, leaving her neglected son with Cherry for days without providing for any of his needs while she was away.
But when Cherry was asked to testify in court against his abusive mother, she was taken out of the picture. Kim knew that Cherry couldn’t lie if her life depended on it—and as it turned out, her life did depend on it.
Cherry’s body was found on the side of a Texas road, after being doused with lighter fluid and set aflame. Kim Cargill was soon revealed as the primary suspect in her murder.
Attractive, manipulative, and with a history of violence, mother of four Kim Cargill turned out to have plenty of dirty secrets she’d do anything to keep hidden. In The Babysitter’s Secrets, our quiet end discussion takes us inside Kim Cargill’s trial for the murder of Cherry Walker–and we glimpse into the mind of one of the most conniving female psychopaths in recent history.
