My father was the 'Happy Face Killer'

Melissa Moore's father was known as the “Happy Face Killer”, brutally murdering at least eight women. 

He started killing in 1990 -- the same year he finalized his divorce to Moore's mother.

Moore has since written a book 'Shattered Silence'  to talk about her experiences with him and the issues between criminals and their families.

She joins HLN's Dr. Drew to talk about her story.

Dr. Drew On Call airs Monday through Wednesday on HLN at 9 p.m. ET.  Follow the show on Facebook and Twitter @DrDrewHLN.
