Betty is now 72 years old
The second season of anthology series Dirty John has finally landed on Netflix, and it tells the shocking true story of seemingly perfect Californian suburban housewife Betty, whose gritty divorce ended in a double murder.
In 1983, Betty accused her lawyer husband Dan Broderick, with whom she had four children, of having an affair with his new legal assistant Linda Kolkena. After years of gaslighting and calling her "crazy", Dan eventually moved out of their marital home two years later to be with Linda; taking custody of their children. A long, unpleasant and drawn-out divorce proceeded, with Broderick vs. Broderick becoming one of the most controversial divorces in US history.
The long and complicated story ended with Betty breaking into Dan and Linda's home while they were asleep and fatally shooting her ex-husband and his wife. Here's what the real-life characters represented in Netflix's The Betty Broderick Story looked like.
