Byron Eash, Kendallville, IN, Us
I knew Byeon years ago through a friend. We reconnected a couple years ago, for a short time. He seemed top clingy. I connected with him again when my friend became critically ill and we decided to go to her because she was dying. She was a family member to him and my oldest friend. We flew cross country to attend her memorial. I was in a relationship, but didn’t feel appreciated or fulfilled. It felt more like a friendship. Byron made a play for it and sucked me in showering me with attention and affection. We came back home and he wanted me to move in right away. I slowly started bringing my things to his house. Nine days after we flew across country, at my sons wedding reception, Byron proposed.
He started showing me very expensive rings he was wanting me to decide on and if I liked them he would bid on them on e-bay. He also said he was shopping around. None of that panned out. A couple weeks later, he told me, he “might” be losing his house. About 10 days before they took it, he told me we had to find a place to live. Thank heavens I hadn’t aaid anything to my landlord about moving. In this time, he told me of how all kinds of people were “taking advantage” of him, his ex’s, his employers, mortgage company, his family, just to name a few. I also started noticing some of my things coming up “missing”, my favorite hairbrush, favorite sunglasses and shorts among other things. I had been talking to a couple friends and they told me that I just didn’t seem my normal happy self. He was also getting very upset about me spending time with friends. About a week prior, I had surgery and had to be off work for an extended time, unpaid. We had talked about it and he kept saying, don’ worry, it’ll work out. I had to beg to get half the rent money and money for the gas bill. I had also bought all the food from the start. He made almost double what I had been making hourly, and worked double my hours.
After my surgery, he became more demanding of me, more clingy, crying, became more of a hypercondriak( claimed high blood pressure) it was usually in a range that was ok and he took his bp up to 12-15 times a day. More of my household things were coming up “missing”, a small cannonball, my meds, sauce pan and more. I finally had enough and stayed late at my friends talking one night.That same night he packed some things and went to work with no intentions of coming back. He told me he was coming to get his things in a couple days. I asked for my things back and hE stated somebody must have stole them and that hE had stuff missing too, and I stole them. He has told everyone Who would listen that I’m crazy, a thieve and a liar because he stated I took my love away and said I would love him forever and now I don’t. He cussed my 21 yr old son out, and acted.like he wanted to fight him when he came to get his stuff. I told him numerous times to make sure hE took everything and intentionally left things. He also tolp people I am using drugs and hard telling what else.
This has been a costly, stressfull, emotionally draining experience. Thank goodness, the love of my life took me back and we’re happier than ever. I have a college mInor in psychology, but I had to learn about a sociopath the hard way..Avoid this man, or you will become the next ” crazy, lying,thief” out to do him wrong.
