In August 2015 Limerick man Jason Corbett was murdered by his wife, Molly Martens, and her father, ex-FBI agent Tom Martens, in the bedroom of their luxury North Carolina home. He had been savagely beaten to death with a baseball bat and brick while his children slept nearby. For his sister, Tracey Corbett-Lynch, and the rest of his family in Ireland it was just the beginning of the nightmare that would involve a custody battle for his orphaned children, an online hate campaign by Molly Martens and, ultimately, the gripping trial that would lead to her conviction, alongside her father, for his murder.
My Brother Jason is the story of how this seemingly all-American girl from a picture-perfect family targeted the widowed Jason Corbett, becoming nanny to his children in a desperate bid to create the family and security she craved, thus setting in motion a series of events that would lead to Jason’s brutal killing by the woman he had once loved.
Here, for the first time, Tracey Corbett-Lynch tells her family’s side of the story in a book that contains shocking revelations about Molly Marten’s history of strange behaviour and the lengths she was willing to go to in order to get custody of Jason’s children.
With full access to Jason’s letters, emails, keepsakes and photographs, it is the story of how an ordinary, loving family was torn apart by the brutal murder of their beloved brother.
My Brother Jason
From start to finish, this book really broke my heart. The family & friends have such courage and determination. There is always two sides to every story however the truth will always reveal itself , your brother would be so proud of you x
My Brother Jason
My eyes are sore! I cried on almost every page of this book!
Jason was such a lucky man to have such a warm loving concerned family friends and especially sister, to fight and speak for him when he could no more!
Thank God that nutter Molly and her arrogant father are locked up! She wanted those 2 children, and she was prepared to go to any lengths to get them! I don’t think she even loved them, as I don’t think she was capable of love, but ‘ I want, and I’m getting’, seemed to have been her mantra!
I hope to God that Treacy and her husband Dave and the four children can carry on their life, and find happiness together, they deserve it more than anyone I know!
I lost my own father to cancer when I was four and I do wish I had memories of him when we were growing up. So long as Jack and Sarah have all the love I know they will have, they will be fine. Enjoy the rest of your lives, it can be short!x
Fantastic read. Heartbreaking.
What a special thing for a sister to do her fight & love for her brother, niece & nephew is a testament to the Corbett Parents.. Such sadness yet such strength.
