hi friends how are you today
it’s me again I’m here
I hope you’re having a wonderful day so far
if you are new here
hi my name is Bailey Sarian and it’s Monday
which means it’s Murder Mystery and Makeup Monday
that’s my theme song
don’t know how we ended up with it
but we did and it’s here every Monday
I sit down and I talk about a true crime story
that’s been heavy on my noggin
and I do my makeup at the same time
so I would suggest you hit that subscribe button
especially if you’re interested in true crime
and makeup because it’s cool
and this week
the story was recommended to me by one of you guys
um shout out to Kalin Shay
99 on Twitter
she sent this to me
and it was really interesting and really kind of gross
to be honest as well
so you know
that’s right up my alley
and I thought let’s do it
so Barbara Daily
Barbara was born in Boston in 1922
I believe she was an only daughter
I didn’t read anything about her having siblings
so forgive me if I am wrong there
but I believe she was the only child
when she was 11 years old in 1933
her father actually committed suicide
he locked himself in the garage
he committed suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning
from the exhaust
Barbara was the one that found him
which I couldn’t even imagine how
how that affects a poor child
once he committed suicide
it was just her and her mother
and they just waited
for the life insurance payment to come through
now this was like
back in 1933
so I believe
um life insurance was different than
like you could actually get life insurance
if somebody committed suicide
now I think
if you commit suicide
you don’t get life insurance
I could be wrong there
it might be a fixed amount or something
but which is so stupid
but that’s so yeah
they ended up collecting a good amount of money
when the life insurance came through once
barbara’s mother collected the life insurance policy
that’s when the 2 of them
Barbara and her mother
they moved to New York City
that’s when they took up a residence in the Delmonico
Hotel in New York
based off like
articles I was looking at
it seems like the Del Monaco hotel was a pretty um
like elite hotel
it’s no longer there anymore
Trump actually purchased it in 2001 for
like a hundred
and $15,000,000
and turned it into the Trump Park Avenue
what I’m getting at is
they must have had
they must have got a good amount of money
in order to stay there
from my understanding
they were not wealthy
barber’s family
and so that’s kind of suspicious
like do you think the mom killed him
now the 2 of them are living in New York City
and Barbara is in her teenage years
like her early twenties
she’s thrown into the middle of the city
and she becomes a prominent social light
what is a social light
a social light is somebody who
like is wealthy
and is always at different parties
and always invited to the latest and greatest
those restaurants
that you can’t ever get into
a social light
will be there
it’s just somebody who
like networks
I don’t know
social light
I will Google
so I googled
social light
and it says
a person who is well known in fashionable society
and is fond of social activities
and entertainment
which like that could be any of us
anyways Barbara becomes a prominent socialite
in New York City
when she was there
you see Barbara would be named one of New york’s
10 most beautiful girls
and from that
she gained regular modeling contracts with vogue
and harper’s Bazaar
her social status and beauty
constantly brought her
invitations to high society parties
allowing her to date various wealthy admirers
very high brown high class
she just like
networked her way to the top baby
in her real life
she was actually suffering
from a mental illness
her mother also suffered from schizophrenia
but her I couldn’t really get that much
now this was a time when mental health was
not really even talked about
because if you were seeing a psychiatrist or anything
you were taken as somebody who’s crazy
am I saying that this is true
no but this
was a time when everybody thought that
she was also seeing a private patient
his name was Foster Kennedy
and but she
never mentioned it
she kept it a secret
she didn’t tell anybody
because if anybody knew
she would lose everything
now Barbara actually got invited
to fly out to Hollywood
for a screen test
she really want to be an actress
she just want to be famous
hold on why am I doing
let me do liner off camera
why do I try
and do it on camera
I don’t know
so while out in Los Angeles
Barbara did not get cast in a movie
but she actually left
with a new friendship
and that was from an actress
or an aspiring actress
named Cornelia Bakeland
Barbara met Cornelia
and they really hit it off
and they became friends
and they started hanging out a lot
and then Cornelia
introduced Barbara
to her brother
named Brooks
now Brooks was actually working as a
trainee pilot
with the Royal Canadian Air Force
now at first
barber’s like oh
that’s cool
like he’s cute
but like you guys playing
now back then
they didn’t have Google
so they had to figure out shit
on their own
you know I’m not sure
how exactly
Barbara figures this out
but I think
probably word of mouth
I’m assuming
but she finds out
that Brooks
this guy and Cornelia
come from a very
very wealthy family
I mean money
you and I will never know
there’s different types of rich
you know there’s the
self made millionaire
and then there’s rich rich
which is old money
usually like
the oil industry
or the railroad company
those people are like rich
rich anyway
she finds out that
this family
rich Brooks
this guy that she’s like
kind of interested
but not really
she finds out that
his grandfather
invented plastic
he invented it
he probably stole it
from someone
but he’s the one that
like you know
got that patent
and everything
there was no plastic
before this man
so the 2 of them
Brooks and Barbara
they’re dating now
they’re official
barbara’s just
like oh my God
he’s the best thing ever
she’s like fuck yeah
I’m set for life
bitch come on
ask me to marry you
so as time goes on
allegedly the relationship was pretty rocky
from the start
they seem to always be bickering
fighting you know
eventually I think
Brooks is the one
who was like
I’m really done with this
I and I went out of this relationship
and then good ol
Barb was like
well guess what
I’m pregnant
now she knew
that Brooks
was just trying to get out of the relationship now
here’s the kicker
here’s the kicker
Barbara wasn’t pregnant
nene Barbara
just didn’t want this man to leave
cause then she
would have to go back to work
but she didn’t tell
Brooks this
until after
they got married
they got married
right away you know
getting a pregnant
before marriage
is just frowned upon
you know those times
doing anything wrong
it was frowned upon
it was frowned upon to breathe
just everything
was frowned upon
so they quickly get married
in California
because barbara’s pregnant
we have to get married
before anybody finds out
that she’s pregnant
they get married
boom barbara’s like
oh by the way
not pregnant
of course that
leads to a really big fight
Brooks is really
it’s fucked up
Barbara over here
is just so happy
because she sealed the deal
she’s now Barbara
Bakeland and
you know what
that means money
she’s now part of the family
Bakelite family
bakelite is
the plastic
company that
the family owned
so after the marriage
the couple had
set up a home
and luxury apartment
in the Upper East Side
of New York
and in this apartment
they held parties
all the time
they would invite
only the fancy
and well known
wealthy people
in the area
come on over
we’re gonna
have a party
an extravagant dinner
just to kind of
keep this socialite
thing going
I honestly don’t know why
Brooks stayed with her
after finding out
she lied about
being pregnant
couldn’t really find
much information
maybe she lied to him
and said she lost the baby
I don’t know
and maybe would have been
frowned upon it
now over time
Barbara in general
became well known to
to everybody
for her unstable
she had rude
outburst not fun
to hang out with
she was just rude
she was very rude
to people but again
it’s a time
where you can’t get help
and if anyone knew
she was seeing a
it would be
it would be
done for her
social light days
so it was also
reported that
Barbara was
an alcoholic
she would get
sloppy drunk
it was also said
as time went on
her husband
Brooks he had
many affairs
I’m talking
like a new girl
a week he just
was constantly
sleeping around
whoopsie Barbara
actually did
end up pregnant
for reals this time
with Brooks baby
she ended up
giving birth to
a little boy
in August of 1946
and his name was
Anthony Bacon
they called him
Tony for short
so every summer
beginning in 1954
and then onward
the whole Bacon
family they
would pretty much do
what a lot of
rich people do
they have the luxury
of having a home
well many homes
so they had
their main home
like in New York
and then they had
another home
Spain London
Paris and then
it just really depended
on the season
where they wanted to stay
like it’s cold
let’s go stay
in our summer house
why pay for heating
when you can
just go somewhere
warm you know
am I right peasants
and then in 1960 the family decided
let’s just go live in Paris
something happened in New York
I think it was at a party
Barbara I guess had gotten really sloppy
sloppy drunk and just was a mess
like embarrassed herself
so that’s why they decided to go stay in Paris
because they don’t know about that little hiccup I had
let’s just go stay there and start over
while they’re in Paris
Brooks her husband
he had met another girl
English diplomats daughter
and she was 15 years old
at this time
that wasn’t illegal
15 sounds great
so he meets this girl she’s 15
he’s like wow I love her
she’s the love of my life
and Brooks is like I’m gonna marry you
this is such a Lifetime movie
so Brooks goes to his wife Barbara
and he’s like hey
met this 15 year old
I want to be with her
I want out of this marriage
here are the divorce papers
I want out now
like any of us would be
Barbara was traumatized
she was so upset
plus she was jealous and bitter
that he was going with a 15 year old
a much younger woman
lady kid much younger kid
and she was quote
better looking than her
and then that’s when Barbara just lost it
okay she was like
my life is over
no more money
I love this man
so Barbara came up with this great idea
she’s like you know what
I’m gonna kill myself
so she tries to kill herself
it was more for show
Brooks is like
really Barb
she tried to kill herself
but it didn’t work
because she didn’t really want to die
she just wanted Brooks be scared
and like stay with her
Brooks comes home finds her
he’s like I’ll break off the affair
I just wanna be with you Barb
so Barbara ends up being fine
and she gets what she wanted
Brooks is breaks off this affair with the 15 year old
and just wants to be with Barbara
as far as the relationship goes with their son
it’s really not talked about much
because it doesn’t seem like
there was much of a relationship
there was nanny’s taking care of Tony
Barbara just giving him whatever he wanted
because she didn’t really want to be a mother
so she just gave him stuff
and that was good enough
poor Tony this little kid
he’s just growing up super wealthy
but he really doesn’t have parents around
to take care of him
pretty much ignored the son
after the age of 18
he decides to kind of travel around
and live in different areas
than his family
like he wants to be on his own
plus they’re wealthy
he can go wherever he wanted
and the parents didn’t care
which is like the dream
when you’re a teenager
so Tony was like
I’m just gonna go through Europe to like
different places
and then kind of figure out where I’m gonna live
so then in 1967
Tony is now 20 years old
he decides to go live in Italy
and at this time
Tony ends up meeting a guy named Jake Cooper
and Jake Cooper was a bisexual Australian man
now Jake would become a really close friend to Tony
Jake would be the one
to introduce Tony to various different drugs
tony’s like oh shit
this is cool drugs
so Tony and Jake are getting pretty close
they’re pretty much living together
you know a little bit of time goes on
they’re experimenting with drugs and stuff
and then tony’s like
I think I’m attracted to dudes
and I’m gonna be with this guy so
they ended up being in a romantic relationship together
the 2 of them
but they didn’t tell anybody
because again
this was a time when no no no
Barbara was still living in Paris
while her son was having this relationship
down in Italy
word got back to Barbara
that her son was in a relationship with a man
and Barbara was like
oh hell no he is not
so Barbara was like
I’m gonna drive down there
and I’m gonna go get him
bring him back
and we’re gonna fix this
he will not make this family look bad
so Barbara drives down there
to where her son staying at
and she’s like
get your shit
we are getting out of here right now
so Barbara actually
wanted to set her son up with a young girl
Barbara firmly believed that Tony just didn’t meet
the right girl
and that’s why he was gay
he needed a girl that he actually liked
and he wouldn’t be gay anymore
so Barbara hit up one of her friends
her friend had a young Spanish daughter
and her name was Sylvie
and pretty much
Barbara was like
this is the girl
you’re gonna date
like you’re not dating a guy anymore
and this is who you’re dating
she’s moving in
so the relationship was moving
quite quickly
sylvie Barbara
Brooks Tony
they were all living together
barbara’s plan actually backfired
and she found out that her husband
Brooks was sleeping
and had a relationship with Sylvie
yeah it’s messy
so then in 1968
Brooks decided that he was just
again once again
he was done with Barbara
and her shit
he wanted to be with the Sylvie girl
so Brooks goes to Barb
and tells her
once again like
I want out of this
I want to have this marriage
luckily for Brooks
I guess they ended up getting a divorce
and Brooks ended up marrying Sylvie
and Tony tells Barbara that I’m
I’m gonna be with a guy
that’s what I want
I like men this time
I just really set her off the rails
like she was livid
okay look Barber was having a lot of affairs as well
throughout her marriage
it wasn’t just the Brooks guy
she was also
engaging in some affairs
and I’m mentioning that because
her thought process here really doesn’t make sense
it’s just different
so Barbara was determined to
fix her son
so she would hire prostitutes
force Tony to have sex with them
and like none of it was working
Barbara here was like
you know what
I’ve had many men tell me
that my pussy is bomb
maybe if I sleep with Tony
he’ll be straight
hey her ego
is that big my vagina
is that special
that it will heal Tony
of his gayness
oh yes this is what
she thought
Barbara was alleged
to have manipulated her son
into having sex with her
which is absolutely disturbing
now her son
was really good looking
so I don’t know
if she was like
actually attracted to him or what
but at the end of the day
that’s still your son
so that is and it said that
during his young adulthood
Tony displayed
signs of schizophrenia
with paranoid tendencies
and his erratic behavior
caused concern
and then eventually
he was diagnosed with schizophrenia
however his
his father refused to
allow him to be treated
by a psychiatrist
he believed that
it was immoral
it was against everything
they believe in
and there’s no way
he’s gonna get help
he’s not schizophrenic
he just needs a nap
so when Barbara is having this relationship with him
having a sexual relationship with him
it’s even worse
because she’s taking
advantage of her son
who is suffering from a mental illness
that’s going untreated
and she’s just
like making
everything worse
with her selfish actions
got tongue tied
so they’re having a
sexual relationship
for a little bit of time
it’s even said that
Tony was seeing another guy
and they were like
at the house
and then Barbara had a
threesome with them
Barbara felt like
she thought
if I have sex
with my son
he’s not going
to be gay anymore
but she did that here
on October 17th 1972
Tony ended up murdering Barb
Tony goes down into the kitchen
and he grabs a kitchen knife
he went behind Barb
his mother and he ended up staring stabbing her
just a couple of times
because his first stab
almost killed her instantly
I think it was only like 2 times
but he stabs her
and Barbara ends up dying
she was 50 years old at that time
Tony at this time was 25
so you see this story was pretty old
and there wasn’t that much information on it
so there’s a lot of stuff
I’m not really clear on like I’m not sure why
police came to the scene
who called I’m not sure on that
but police do end up coming to the scene
and they end up finding Barbara
she’s she’s dead on the ground
and they also find Tony
he’s still at the house
police arrest
and they take him in
and he confesses to the murder
he’s like yeah
I did that shit
he also goes on to say that Barbara was abusing him
and he just couldn’t take it anymore
so he went up and he killed her he was gay
he also had mental health issues
that were going untreated
and it was because his mother
wasn’t allowing him to be himself
but also was preventing him from getting more help
as far as the mental illness goes
and she was abusing him
so he just had all this rage built up
and he’s like
I’m just gonna kill her
it’s sad but like
at the same time
I’m kind of like
well I don’t really
it’s like the Gypsy Rose story
I mean it’s nothing like that
but it’s kind of similar with Gypsy Rose
she wasn’t sexually abused
but she was being abused
and then she just had somebody else kill her mom
with this story
Barbara is abusing her son
he the only way he thought he could get out
was killing her
do I think it’s right
no but I I guess I’m sick
don’t come for me
but I kind of understand
I guess like I Yeah
you don’t want to agree that yeah
it was the only option
but sometimes
it’s like dude
I don’t know
anyways so he confesses to the murder
he gets charged with murder
but instead of going to prison
he was institutionalized at Broadmoor
which is a psychiatric hospital
and he was there until July 21st of 1980
he seems to be doing really well
and the doctors were like you know what
he seems like
he’s doing well
he’s gotten better
of this illness
I’m not sure again
what the thought process was
I read that a group of his friends
had a petition to get him out
said that he was being abused
and he shouldn’t even be there
he’s fine but then
I also read that
that wasn’t the case
so he did get out in 1980
and he was 33 years old at this time
and tony’s like okay
I can’t go with my dad
because his dad
he doesn’t want anything to do with him
so Tony was like
I can’t go to my dad
decides to fly to New York City
to stay with his 87 year old maternal grandmother
so this was barbara’s mother now
it seems that they also had a very toxic relationship
and it only took 6 days
after he was released
July 27th he attacked his grandmother
with the kitchen knife
and he ended up stabbing her 8 times
and he broke several bones
it seemed he was very upset towards his grandmother
for a couple of reasons
one she didn’t believe him
that Barbara was sexually abusing him
and then also
she didn’t approve of him being gay
so then he was arrested
by the New York City Police Department
he was charged with attempted murder
and sent to prison
after 8 months
of being imprisoned
he actually was expecting to be released on bail
at a court hearing
March 20 1981
however it didn’t work out
because there was a delay
in the transfer of his medical records from the UK
so this made Tony extremely depressed
he went back to his cell
and then he ended up putting a plastic
bag over his head
and he killed himself
there are a lot of people who do not believe that
Tony killed himself
they believe that
he was murdered
but there really isn’t any proof
to show that he was murdered
so I’m not really sure
I’m not really sure
what I think
either anyways
so that is the story about Barbara
and Tony Brooks
Bakeland I know
I was kind of all over the place
with the story
because again
there wasn’t much information
about a lot of things
there was actually a movie made
based off of this story
it’s called
Savage Grace
and it stars like
Julianne Moore
I think it has
plays Barbara
and it kind of shows
the relationship
and what happened
a lot of the families say that
like it’s a movie
so a lot of parts are over exaggerated
that’s not very factual
but it is a pretty good movie
if you wanna watch it
I don’t know
yeah so that’s the story
sad gross and sad
I feel really bad for Tony
I mean um he had a pretty
rough ass life
and Barbara
over here suck balls
like she sucked
it just goes to show you
you could be the
richest little bitch in the world
but guess what baby
your life still probably sucks
Barbara was a piece of shit
I really don’t know what else to say
I hope you have a wonderful day today
you make good choices
I appreciate you guys so much for always sending
it means so much
make good choices
and please be safe out there
okay I’ll be seeing you guys later bye
