Studying young psychopaths at University — what could go wrong?
Meet Chloe Sevre.
She’s a freshman honor student, a legging-wearing hot girl next door, who also happens to be a psychopath. Her hobbies include yogalates, frat parties and plotting to kill Will Bachman, a childhood friend who grievously wronged her.
Chloe is one of seven students at her DC-based college who are part of an unusual clinical study for psychopaths—students like herself who lack empathy and can’t comprehend emotions like fear or guilt.
The study, led by a renowned psychologist, requires them to wear smart watches that track their moods and movements. …verakurian.com
