Below are some of the newspaper articles about Edward Kent (the attorney who illegally arranged Michelle’s adoption) and the 1978 indictment against him. New articles will be added over time.
In some of these articles, Michelle is the child referred to as the December 4, 1976 “incident.” Some of these articles include statements taken from Kent’s testimony that contradict Hollie’s experiences, including his involvement after Michelle’s birth. They also contradict some of the information Michelle’s adoptive father provided to her in 2017. A separate post will be made at a later date about the inconsistencies in what Edward Kent stated in court and what actually took place.
