Killer Kids Episode Of Bernadette Protti Case: Rumors & The To Do list

Bernadette Protti's case will air on "Killer Kids" on Lifetime Movie Network on Wednesday, March 18, 2014. The name of the episode is "Rumors & The To Do List."

I appear on the episode talking about the case. This episode was shot in Sanford, Florida last August. I had a great time working with everyone on the set about the case.

This will be a two-part documentary----not sure what the other case is about. I will check the website to see if they have a new trailer up for this. I know at least one neighbor will appear on the show, but I am unsure if the Costas will appear.

It should be a good but short episode.

Her family kept her new name a secret

You know what I find fascinating? The fact that Bernadette's entire family kept her new name and new identity a secret. Last night I was reading an email from a reader, and she mentioned that she had come across an article that mentioned that Bernadette Protti had five other siblings, Bernadette being the youngest.

Wow! Think about that for a moment. Five other adults other than her parents kept her identity and location a secret for 24 years. Reflecting on that last night proved to me beyond a shadow of a doubt that her husband has to know. At some point, she had to have confided in her husband about her past.


Perhaps others know as well, but have decided to keep her identity under wraps out of respect for her. Remember, before this all happened, no one had a bad thing to say about Bernadette. No one. Everyone liked her. The neighbor was totally distraught because she couldn't believe that someone as sweet and caring as Bernadette Protti could be capable of such a heinous crime.

I use the term heinous because...it was. Bernadette struck Kirsten Costas five times, specifically, on the right arm, on the left arm, and into the chest, the lung, and two to the back. Kirsten tried her best to get away.


Just let that sink in....I think with all of our talk about Bernadette, we forget about the actual victim, Kirsten.

Why Bernadette Wore Sweat Pants To Meet Kirsten

I was asked the question recently about why I thought Bernadette dressed casually when she told Kirsten's mother that she should dress "nice."

When I was asked the question, I wasn't really sure of the answer. I had always assumed that it was because Kirsten didn't have the money to buy a nice outfit to wear to the so-called party. We know the money factor was the case when Bernadette went on the famous ski trip and was ridiculed by Kirsten because of her crummy skis.

But, I was told recently that a neighbor who knew Bernadette well stated that she had really nice clothes. In fact, sometimes when Bernie would get a new outfit, she would often ask the woman and neighbor, "How do I look," Bernadette would say.


So it hit me last night while I was sleeping that there was no actual party (Yes, cases and ideas and motives hit me when I'm sleeping sometimes). Bernadette knew this when she told Kirsten Costas' mother about it. She wouldn't have said anything at all about what type of clothing Kirsten should wear if Berit hadn't asked her.

So the part about the clothes was just an afterthought for Bernadette Protti, just something to say to answer Berit's question.



This is why the prosecutor felt that it was premeditated. However, I still do not believe this was premeditated murder.

So what was Bernadette Protti's motive for asking Kirsten out? I'll tell you my thoughts in another post.

Bernadette's Real Name

Hello everyone,

Thanks for all of your updates. I know many of you have found out Bernadette's new name. I get emails just about everyday sometimes twice a day with details of her new name and her husband's name. I already know her name, remember?

I am not going to be posting her new name here.
