Tonight's special guest is Jennie Grabbe, a new member of the NAASCA family from Robinson, Illinois. Jennie is a survivor of a convicted murderer, who happens to be her father. She's come a long way in her inner-healing process. In 1981, her father, Fred Grabbe, was convicted in two adjacent trials of killing her mother, Charlotte. Fred was able to hide this for over 3 years until his daughter, Jennie, hired a private investigator which blew the case wide open. The events that were uncovered were nothing less than savage. She learned that her father had strangled her mother with his bare hands and then sodomized the body. He placed the body in a 50-gal metal burn barrel and drove to a remote location on their farm where he then burned the body and disposed of it in the Wabash River which borders Illinois and Indiana. Jennie describes the long journey of healing as nothing less than miraculous. She waded through years of not only physical and sexual abuse at the hands of several perpetrators, but with the help of God and Christian friends she has dealt with horrifying repressed memories as well. Today, Jennie lives in a rural neighborhood in central Illinois with her husband and two 14-year-old twins. She has decided to put her story in the form of a book in hopes of helping others to deal with similar culminating atrocities.
