This was an important act in the dehumanizing of Sylvia, as she purposely humiliated her in front of her children and their neighborhood friends.

It gave the "green light", so to speak. It sent the message that Sylvia was fair game. Sub human. And that it was OK to ridicule and brutalize her - at least in the Baniszewski home and under Gertrude's watch.

Gertrude was flexing her sadistic muscles and preparing her self for the slow and dreadful kill.

I also doubt it's that easy to dance, as a poster above stated, while holding a bottle up inside yourself. And she was just a kid! 16 was younger in 1965 than it is now. She might not have known where to put it. I hope!

Those might've been semi-separate incidents, I don't know.

She was one psycho lady. No, not even a lady. Not even human. A demon spawned from satanseed.

Whatever happened to the Baniszewski kids?


DEADLY WOMEN - BORN BAD PT. 1 - GERTRUDE BANISZEWSKI - YouTube


Gertrude was clearly a sociopath, yet she went to church regularly. some forensic psychiatrists have linked studies with strict fundamentalism/religious indoctrination and schizotypal behaviours.

Thank you for posting this. It is very close to the actual atrocities that were commuted against Sylvia Likens.

I have no words.

However, I have this response. Most of the brutal tortures, died untimely deaths. Coy Hubbard comes to mind. He was the sadist who practiced judo moved o Sylvia's starved and broken body.

Johnny Baniszweski, who along with Paula and Stephanie; changed his last name to "Banks", spoke out against the torture murder of Sylvia.

Stephanie has never changed her position, siding with Gertrude that Sylvia deserved her fate.

Stephanie's out of wedlock child was even given the unfortunate name of "Gertrude".

No one suffered as Sylvia did.

I have no compassion for anyone who was involved i this. Inclining the sister Jenny.

There is no one on earth who would have thought that constant beating, burning, scalding baths ad starvation were "normal"

They were ALL AT FAULT!
