The fact that she says her middle name Elizabeth after Elizabeth Short.... more evidence.

I understand that Tamar also victimized and abused her children. And I understand why it'd be difficult for them to not be angry with her... though the youngest does feel for her. But it's more difficult for me to hear people from the outside talking about her like she's a monster. She did monstrous things but I can't even begin to imagine just how traumatized she was. To live with George and to see what she did, to be molested, to have your father rape you, to be forced in to an excruciating illegal abortion, to be raped RIGHT AFTER that, to go to the authorities finally for some help, and then to be called a liar by your own mother and father in open court after recounting your trauma, to have your father's baby... it permanently shattered her mind/psyche. I got the feeling that she still had some sense and reason when she went to the cops as a 15 yr old. But after what happened in court it seemed like she went off the deep end. I think she was certifiably insane at that point. She should have been locked up in a psychiatric hospital for the rest of her life.

this episode... so sad. I feel so much for Deborah. And I'm angry at Fauna for being so insensitive and selfish. Fauna had an overall good life full of love and then she refuses to even try to understand Deborah's reasoning. I mean, Deborah suffered soul-crushing abuse and emotional neglect... then to have her sister reject her over a damn name? ugh... this family.

So disturbing that I could only listen for 15 mins. at a time. Have been following this case since reading Steve's book. I am so glad that your family has broken the horrible cycle. Well done podcast. Blessings!

I have followed the story this far and this epsiode especially, I just could not listen to. It takes a lot to stop me from hearing an evil story or details. After 21 minutes I had to stop. Sorry to the family, I just couldn't stand to listen to that type of child abuse.

These are the most twisted, disgusting people I have ever heard of...at times it has been almost impossible to even listen to, I cannot fathom how the hell these poor people lived through the abuse and torture. My god, I have never wanted an old man to be ripped apart by wild dogs, slowly, so much in my life. I hope George Hodel is being tortured in an afterlife
