Jack: What do you mean supposidly? Lil': In my twenty some years of studying all types of people, never have I encountered an abused individual who dreams about the abuse actually occurring. Usually they will dream about other thing which make them happy, sometimes the abused will dream about getting back in some way at the abuser! Claire: So, she's saying that she was dreaming about the actual abuse at the time she murdered her daughter. That's what she is claiming? Lil': Yes, and it doesn't really follow typical behavior of abused individuals! I have never seen it before! J: So your saying the abused will usually dream about getting back at their abuser? Lil': Exactly! Lil': Her daughter and her daughter's boyfriend were just mistaken in her dream as herself and her abusing father from years earlier! C: So why did she kill the female figure? Lil': She was asleep, she probably just started swinging at everythinh and anything that was reminding her of the abuse she once faced in her past! J: Nevertheless, even though she was asleep, her main goal was to get back at the abuser....correct? Lil': Correct! J: So even if she was sleepwalking as is claimed... C: She HAD CRIMINAL INTENTIONS!
