Today, on Crime & Entertainment we have Terra Newell. Terra is the daughter of Debra Newell, Debra thinking she meet the love of her life through a dating app had unknowingly meet the devil himself, John Meehan.
John knew exactly what to say to sweep Debra off her feet. She was ready to take a chance on him, and on real love. However, John Meehan wasn’t who claimed to be. He had been released from prison in October 2014, only two days before he met Debra, after serving time for violating a restraining order.
The two soon moved in together — and that’s when the true Dirty John began to emerge. He became increasingly violent, and isolated Debra from her daughters, Jacquelyn and Terra, who were suspicious of John from the start. When the Newell women dug into his past, they uncovered a web of lies and crimes. And, before long, John’s violence turned from Debra to Terra, who barely escaped with her life. She details in this show how she fought for her life after being attacked in a parking garage by John Meehan that day. Also, how the effects of that day is a struggle years later and she even has her own podcast detailing the difficult roads that survivors face after the trauma is over. These days Terra is a life coach and dedicates herself to helping those who have had similar situations. You can find links to that and Terra's socials below. So, strap in and hear how Terra Newell took out Dirty John Meehan here on Crime & Entertainment.
