As Dorothy Lee Barnett (Alexandra Geldenhuys) awaits her February 3, 2014 Extradition Hearing and probably Criminal Trial for her 1994 Kidnapping Crime in the United States, most competent defense attorneys would not want any potential future witness to give an interview to the media. But it appears that Dorothy Lee Barnett’s now adult child Savanna/Samantha will be doing just that on Channel Seven in Sydney, Australia).
The Family Abduction Community has seen a handful of these cases of young Adult-Children that have been so emotionally abused from their parental kidnapping that they are unable to connect the truths and lies that have been told to them. We’ve seen as the parental kidnapper sits in a jail cell, she’ll continue to direct her misguided family, friends and relatives and most pathetically her own child to cover-up her really horrible and heinous crime against her own child. As we’ve seen on many television shows and real life court hearings, some family members and friends will lie or commit perjury to supported their so called loved one.
In this case, if Savanna was recovered as a minor, the recovering parent would have sent her directly to a Therapist skilled with parental kidnapping reunification therapy. She would have been appointed an attorney that represent her legal rights. Instead, it appears in this case that rather than going to therapy, this adult child is headed to the media for a “World-Wide Interview”. We really hope that Channel Seven is sensitive to the fact that Savanna is a victim in this case and doesn’t “participate in the news” rather than just “report it”. Unfortunately, in today’s new digital news and social media, that’s nearly impossible.
Whatever the case, we really hope that Savanna / Samantha will eventually realize that there is some alleged deviant behavior from her mother’s DNA and take the high road.
