"Ghastly" hardly begins to cover it - I genuinely don't believe there's a word or phrase in English that adequately describes her childhood.

I find quite absurd that drone operators are routinely diagnosed with PTSD - and the mental illness has been used as defence for many a soldier facing murder charges - but Lisa Montgomery was competent to be found guilty of murder and due to be executed, despite having received infinitely more damage than a drone operator (or soldier, for that matter) ever would.
