16 Reasons People Are Talking About Netflix’s True Crime Doc ‘Abducted In Plain Sight’
You’d think that kidnapping your child would be reason enough to sever ties with someone. Not if you’re the Brobergs!
Abducted in Plain Sight really isn’t the right name for this documentary. Because these parents basically served their kid up on a silver platter. Following the first abduction, Mary Ann started having a sexual affair with Robert ‘B’ Berchtold, the man who kidnapped and raped her 12-year-old daughter. Yes. AFTER HE KIDNAPPED HER. The affair lasted for a year, and was used to blackmail the Brobergs into dropping the charges against him. Mary Ann and Bob also allowed B to take Jan to Seattle for two weeks, in a vacation. AFTER HE HAD ALREADY KIDNAPPED HER. It’s like they decided, at every single turn, to try to be even more stupid and neglectful than they’d already been.
