The initial reports by the media is that Dorothy Lee Barnett / Alexandra Geldenhuy raised her daughter in a “normal” life South Africa, New Zeland and on the Sunshine Coast in Australia. But there is new information that her marriage was not so normal. Below are some recent Anonymous Posts in the comments section of our website.
- “Juan and Alex’s marriage wasn’t loving. we witnessed belittling of a loving man. She wore the pants and was fiercely protective of the children, yet very pushy and ambitious on their behalf (ambitious soccer mum type) Jaun was an keen runner and was very fit, story we heard was that was how they met in Cape Town through a running club. Sam always appeared older than her years.”
- “This family lived in our community, we are astounded Juan left New Zealand ahead of the family with the intent to start his new job (as a brand manager/ sales rep) and buy a house for the family. Whilst the children finished school year. He had an affair with a estate agent during this process, the Alex/Dorothy found out when they arrived in Australia, made sure no one forgave him. He lived in a house he paid for and no one talked to him. He was another victim in this sick sorry mess!”
Dorothy Lee Barnett is due back in court on February 3, 2014 for her extradition hearing.
