When feelings for another person run deep, people are often inclined to see the best in that person. It’s

not uncommon for unsettling behavior to be excused rather than seeing it as a warning sign and acting on

it. But this idealism can put someone in harm’s way without them realizing it until it’s much too late. When

Nicole Montalvo went missing in October 2019, investigators quickly learned that a lot was going on in her

personal lif...
