In 2004 Liz Branden was a promising young professor at a liberal arts university. On October 31st, she entered a 48 hour period where she went from being slightly suspicious of her colleagues to a full blown psychotic break, including locking herself in a hotel conference room and being taken to the psych ward by the police.
