Mary Winkler lost custody of her daughters after being indicted for the murder of her husband, a sadistic rapist, a pornography hound, and all around abusive jerk. She was convicted of voluntary manslaughter. I’ve written about Mary Winkler before in this entry
. I am glad she has custody because it is my belief that her husband learned his evil ways from his father. It has been the children’s paternal grandparents who have tried to keep her daughters away. Hopefully, the grandfather has not sexually or physically abused the daughters yet. It will already take a lifetime to correct the emotional abuse they have suffered. Nothing can convince me that the grandparents did not try to turn the children against their mother.
“These young ladies have not expressed any desire to be with their mother or her family,” said Dan Winkler in 2007.
The Winkler’s filed appeals in an effort to stop Mary Winkler from having supervised visits and phone calls with her daughter.
But now, a source said they have turned over custody to the girls’ mother.
This is being called the first step to full custody, although no official court order has been filed.
It’s unclear why the Winkler’s suddenly turned over custody of the girls.
Hmmm. Maybe the trade was to keep the girls from talking about grandpa.
