Groomed to Die: The Kendzia Children | Part 6: House of Cards on Suffer the Little Children Podcast

Groomed to Die: The Kendzia Children | Part 6: House of Cards

Over the past five episodes, I’ve told you about the many acts of child abuse allegedly perpetrated by Susan Lee, including her murder charges for the deaths of her two adopted infant sons; twenty-eight years of medical abuse of her younger daughter; physical and mental cruelty toward her daughters and step-sons; and maltreatment of a number of children she babysat. I also told you a little about Susan’s alleged abuse of her third adopted child.

In this episode, I’ll tell you more about Susan’s treatment of her adopted daughter and what happened once DSS finally got involved. I’ll also tell you how Susan’s biological daughters, Christy and Shain, reunited after over a decade and began putting the pieces together, revealing the enormity of Susan’s decades-long reign of terror.

This is Part 6: House of Cards.
