I wasn’t aware until just now, when we saw a surge of weekday TV viewers visiting our June 2012 story about the kidnapping and torture of Lois Pearson in Corsicana, that the Investigation Discovery series Your Worst Nightmare produced an episode about the horrific tale.

“Neighbor From Hell” first aired on Dec. 23. Much of the episode comprises dramatizations of Pearson’s ill-fated interactions with Jeffrey Maxwell, but among the talking heads interviewed to offer commentary is our own Michael J. Mooney:
