Jason Corbett grew up in Limerick, Ireland. When he was just 30, his first wife, Margaret Fitzpatrick, died from an acute asthma attack. Her death left Jason alone with two young children.
Jason searched for a nanny online to help with his children after his wife’s death. 24-year old Molly Corbett lived in Knoxville Tennessee but she moved to Limerick and became their nanny. Before long, Jason and Molly began a romantic relationship. Molly was a wife and a mother of two virtually overnight.
Jason was a big, burly Irishman, always the life of the party and smiling. Molly fell in love with him and his children. The two became engaged in 2010 and married in 2011. This story should have read like a fairytale. The family moved to North Carolina when Jason was promoted at work. They lived in a beautiful 5000sq ft plus home with room for Molly’s parents to stay overnight on visits. But something went terribly wrong in the early morning hours of August 2, 2015.
Molly and her father would claim that violence erupted when Jason attacked Molly, but Jason’s sister Tracey would write a book claiming that Jason was a victim of Molly and Thomas Martens, a father and daughter bent on destroying Jason. Today, in Blindsided, we will attempt to sort out the truth of what really happened to Jason Corbett.
