ZOLOFT MURDER: The Case of 12 Year Old Christopher Pittman

Christopher Pittman, 12

I was absolutely shocked the other night when looking through all of the television specials we have posted on our website for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness www.drugawareness.org when I found that this special on 48 Hours on the case of 12 year old Christopher Pittman only had 46 views!!!! No wonder all of you thought that special posted almost 9 times on my Facebook page early this week was the only television special addressing these drugs! You apparently have not known where to find these. There are at least 50 posted at this point with many more waiting to be posted on our website. Please take the time to view them so you can see that quite a bit has been done so far in the media – of course there has not been anywhere near enough –  especially lately or there would be such a public outcry that  these drugs would no longer be on the market.

When I did an interview with Court TV on Chris’ case as it was in court they broke away to their next case who just happened to be a teenage girl in Idaho, also on Zoloft, who killed both her parents. Next they went to the case of Cody, the teenage boy who killed his mother and father and little brother on Sam Donaldson’s ranch in New Mexico, who was also on Zoloft. They were so shocked seeing all of these cases together that they even stopped the show for a minute to comment, “What the heck is with this Zoloft and kids killing their families?!!!!” About ten years ago I had a case of a 5 year old on Zoloft in Southern Utah who experienced such strong homicidal ideation that the family said the boy called 911 to ask the police to come and kill his family for him!!!!

Chris Pittman and His Family’s Zoloft-Induced Hell

In 2001 the world was shocked as the news reports of a 12 year old boy who killed his grandparents and burned their house down broke nationwide. I got a call from Barbara Simpson with Coast to Coast AM to do a show on children and antidepressants in which I said I had no doubt we would find this case was yet another antidepressant case. I do hope the prosecutor in this case and the jury realize how much their unwillingness to listen to the truth in this case and thereby learn their lesson about these deadly drugs has contributed to all of the SSRI-induced deaths in South Carolina since Chris’ case went to court.

One person I worked very closely with on Chris’ case, besides Andy Vickery, Chris’ attorney and Chris’ family, is Watson Wright, the coroner for Chester County in South Carolina. He was not only the coroner in this case, but was also a very close friend of Christopher’s grandparents who died. Watson knew without doubt that Zoloft was the cause of this tragic double murder and arson. In his mind there was no other explanation which is why he contacted me. He knew the family and Chris well.

Add to Watson’s conviction of what happened in this case the testimony of the other experts and you wonder how on earth this case went the way it did. In my mind the answer to that is simple….Pfizer and their connections. This is a company who has been found guilty of RICO yet the judge allowed them to have another company they had just purchased pay the price for that crime. Otherwise Pfizer would have been shut down and out of business. Obviously it is all who you know and who owes you favors.

48 Hours Coverage of the Christopher Pittman Case



What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the most deadly sleep disorder known as REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) are currently taking antidepressants. REM Sleep Disorder is a condition in which there is no paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. Tragically 80% of those going into this sleep disorder hurt themselves or others including both murder and suicide as a result.

This is possibly the most deadly of all reactions one can have to antidepressants. Even more frightening though is to learn that before the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants RBD was known mainly as a drug withdrawal effect. Thus the chances of going into this dangerous reaction should be expected to increase as one goes into withdrawal. This is why it is so important to avoid as much of the withdrawal effects as possible by tapering off the antidepressant very, very slowly.


What so many were not aware of is that an increase in serotonin by an accompanying decrease in one’s ability to metabolize serotonin was long known to produce both impulsive murder and suicide. See this study: https://www.drugawareness.org/mutant-mice-key-to-human-violence-an-excess-serotonin/
