Groomed to Die: The Kendzia Children | Part 5: So Many Victims on Suffer the Little Children Podcast

Groomed to Die: The Kendzia Children | Part 5: So Many Victims

In the first four episodes of this miniseries, I’ve talked about Susan Kendzia’s adopted baby boys, Michael and Kevin, and their suspicious deaths that led to Susan’s murder trial and subsequent acquittal. I’ve also talked about Susan’s alleged medical, psychological, and physical abuse of her second biological daughter, Shannon, now known as Shain. 

In this episode, I’ll tell you about the abuse multiple other children allegedly suffered at Susan’s hands, including her older daughter, Christy; her stepsons, John Christopher and Levi; the special needs children she cared for in her in-home day care center, and her third adopted child, “K.L.”

This is Part 5: So Many Victims.
