Jon Koppenhaver (War Machine), is a former professional mixed martial artist who in March 2017 was convicted of 29 felony counts after assaulting adult film star Christy Mack. They had previously been in a relationship together.

In the early morning hours of August 8th, 2014, a trail of blood marked a path down the quiet street, Pueblo Way, Las Vegas, Nevada. It was a trail that winded in between the houses and eventually came to an end at the doorway of the very last house on the street. The occupant of this household would awaken to a bang on the window accompanied by a scream, the distressing noise would prompt them to immediately call 911.

Curled up on the floor would be the horrific consequences of so-called “toxic love”. It was the conclusion of a tragic tale rampant with abusive power and control. To fully acquire an understanding of this moment we must take into account each of the bizarre circumstances that occurred beforehand. This takes us back to the very beginning of this story.

The Case of Jon Koppenhaver is a feature-length psychological analysis of War Machine and the events that took place that night by YouTube channel JCS – Criminal Psychology. It is an in-depth look at how this man came to committing such a terrifying crime.
