• Investigation Discovery’s Lust for Life

Sienky Lallemand is a man with a unique name and hustle. Using his wicked good looks, Lallemand preys on women and men who have everything to lose. He graduates from credit card and bank fraud to extortion and eventually the cold, calculated murder of his girlfriend’s husband, Marcus Toney. Together, Lallemand and Lisa Toney hatch an ‘explosive’ plan. But this isn’t the only scheme Lallemand will hatch, or the only woman he will swindle . . .

That’s the description for an Investigation Discovery Wicked Attraction episode, premiering Saturday, June 16, at 9 PM.

The episode, “Lust for Life,” is based on “Seduced,” Joy Bergmann’s fascinating 2002 Reader story about con man Sienky Lallemand. It involves sex, blackmail, greed, fraud, and murder. Which makes me wonder what the heck took so long to get this story to any screen, whether big or small.
