An Indianapolis brother and sister who killed their mother and grandparents in 2004, then dismembered their bodies and buried them in the basement, will be featured Wednesday in a segment of the new TV show Evil Kin on the Investigation Discovery channel.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) — A Charleston Psychologist will be featured this fall on the new Investigation Discovery series “Evil Kin.”
Dr. David Clayman of Clayman Associates, PLLC will appear on three episodes airing nationally September 4, September 18 and October 9.
Each episode of “Evil Kin” focuses on one family’s murderous story and is interlaced with expert commentary from local authorities and true-crime experts as well as first-person accounts from actual family members and family friends, according to a news release.
One of the three episodes will feature the Mallo family from Charleston.
Thomas Mallo, who was just 14, stabbed his elderly neighbor, Phyllis Phares more than 35 times in 2010. He is currently serving a 40 year prison sentence. Just this week, his sentence was extended an additional 10 years after he tried to escape from a juvenile correctional facility and assaulted an officer.

Whether it’s siblings from hell, the spawn of Satan, or an entire household of horrors, it’s not hard to dig up the root of all evil in these six episodes of family trees nearly cut down by
