Broken Harts Investigative

Produced By: Glamour and HowStuffWorks
Hosted By: Lauren Smiley

We all know someone who shows the perfect family on social media. But what happens when that perfection is shattered in a way that stuns a nation?

Meet the Harts. Made up of Markis, Hannah, Devonte, Abigail, Jeremiah, and Sierra Hart — six black children ranging in age from 12 to 19 —  that were all adopted by Sarah and Jennifer Hart, both white.

To those around them, everything was perfect, with Jen’s Facebook page showing exactly that.

However, on March 26, 2018, the family’s GMC Yukon was found belly-up on the rocks below California’s Highway 1 in what was reported to be a murder-suicide.

As the shocking news made national headlines, many found themselves wondering how this could have happened. How could a family who showed no sign of distress have come to such a devastating end?

In this podcast, you’ll go behind the scenes through the family’s journey from South Dakota through Minnesota, Oregon, and Washington, and finally to that 100-foot cliff in California and make your own conclusion.
