Strange Crimes

Investigation discovery has revealed what happens when bizarre compulsions spin out of control and push people into a life of crime.

Joey Leaphart has a severe foot fetish that keeps getting him into trouble. He approaches women in public and cons them into letting him get closer to their feet. He then makes a sneak attack and sucks on their toes.

46 year old Richard Walker is now serving a 20 year prison sentence after a lifetime of battling his strange compulsion to masturbate in public places.

A friend of mine, Mr. Oday-Dhoorre just sitting beside me said that as a young kid he used to bite his fingernails so much that he remembers when his parents made a deal with him saying if he stopped the biting, they would then buy him a bicycle.

As a child, you can sometimes engage in some crazy habits which go away on their own as time goes by. From hair twirling to lip picking, thumb sucking to shirt chewing, finger tapping to knuckle cracking.

All those habits don’t bother children; indeed, most children pick, bite, or suck without even realizing it.

Not only that, but most of the time, the habit serves an important part of being a child and a developmental need, usually for comfort.

Foot fetish is more criminal addiction than habit.

“I am 24 years old. I love to lick women’s feet and I really enjoy it: licking, sucking and smelling feet of girls. I have started to do this since I was a kid. Please tell me about this thing and suggest ways to stop or reduce this thing” Happy-Khalif, a young man in his early 30s said.

Investigation discovery also revealed strange criminal addictions from a lewd subway commuter to a diaper-wearing man, or urine drinker to a toe sucker, first-hand accounts of those true crime tales plunges viewers into a world where strange addictions took an illegal turn.

Dr Mike Dow, addiction specialist and expert in the field of relationships, food and behavior explains how these unhealthy habits turned to uncontrollable addictions and helps viewers understand the triggers for these compulsive behaviors.
