In 2014 a story about the family emerged which shocked locals and the world alike. Many of Robinson’s neighbors had believed she was a model grandmother. Indeed, one of them told the Huffington Post, “I can’t believe it. I just think that’s not true.” Yet as this story goes to show – you never really know what goes on behind closed doors.
In September 2014 Robinson had dashed to a local hospital with one of her granddaughters. And while the girl was being examined, hospital staff quickly realized that all was not right with the seven-year-old. For a start, she was showing signs of malnourishment – but there were also other deeply troubling symptoms on show.
The girl’s tiny frame was bruised and beaten, her face was scratched, and it also looked like she had burn marks. But that wasn’t all. There were, in addition, peculiar scars around both her wrists and ankles. Indeed, the latter had become infected after seemingly being cut. Yes, the skin was badly infected.
