Below are some newspaper articles and miscellaneous court documents regarding the adoption of Michelle Riess and the 1978 indictment against Edward Kent–the attorney hired by the adoptive parents.
Some of the newspaper articles include statements taken from Kent’s court testimony that completely contradict Hollie’s experiences, including his heavy involvement after Michelle’s birth. They also contradict much of the information Michelle’s adoptive father provided to her in 2017. A separate post will be made at a later date about these issues and the major inconsistencies in what Edward Kent stated in court and what actually took place.
