She was “The Profiler.”“Since people lied to her so often, she claimed to be able to know right away, within five minutes of meeting someone, or even just looking at a picture, whether someone could be trusted,” said Monroy.
“And she would do this with the men I was in relationships with.

An international firestorm was ignited last year after a former Stanford student, Brock Turner, was given a much-criticized six-month jail sentence for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman on campus.
