Well, here’s everything we know about ‘Trapped with My Husband.’
Is Trapped with My Husband a True Story?
‘Trapped with My Husband’ is partially inspired by a true story. The movie was written by Michael Perronne, whose other works include ‘Here Kills the Bride‘ and ‘Saving My Daughter.’ Most of the writer’s projects belong in the thriller genre and always leave the audience wanting more. While it is not precisely known what real-world events inspired the film, we did find a real-life case closely resembling the narrative.
In 2002, Clara Harris, a dentist from Texas, and her husband, orthodontist David Harris, were going through a divorce. She suspected him of cheating on her and hired a private investigator to shadow her husband. On July 24, 2002, the dentist found David with Gail Bridges, the woman she suspected him of cheating with, at a Hilton hotel in Houston. Ironically, the hotel happened to be the same one where he and Clara got married on February 14, 1992.
The fight between the married couple started in the hotel’s lobby, but soon they were arguing in the parking lot. Enraged, Clara got into her Mercedes-Benz and ran over her husband multiple times. David’s teenage daughter, Lindsey, who was 16 at the time, was in the same car that killed her father and testified for the same in the 2003 trial against Clara. Not just that, the incident was also videotaped by the private investigator Clara had hired to follow David.
Clara was sentenced to 20 years in prison though she was released after 15 years on parole. The story of a couple on the verge of breaking apart that ended in a horrible tragedy is not uncommon in real-life. The makers of ‘Trapped with My Husband’ likely referred to many such cases like Clara’s to shape the riveting narrative and characters. Furthermore, the Lifetime thriller tries to present the story as a mysterious puzzle that leaves the audience curious about the identity of the criminal till the end.
