For those unaware, the New York Times cover story was written by Ezra Marcus and James D. Walsh. It tells of the story of Larry Ray, who went to stay with hid daughter at Sarah Lawrence College after being released from prison. With political connections and violent streak, Larry Ray began methodically manipulating his daughter’s classmates, gradually taking control of their lives.

The events escalated into Ray abusing the students. In the end, Ray was found out, but many of the students began praise him in court for how he turned their lives around.
