The Curious Case Of Natalia Grace Plot
The Barnett family adopted Natalia and considered her a poor little orphan. However, Kristine Barnett started getting pieces of evidence that challenged their beliefs. The pieces included traces of the menstrual cycle and improved vocabulary that does not suit a six-year-old child.
The bone density test conducted at the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital proved that Natalie was more than fourteen. On the other hand, a skeletal survey that occurred at a hospital in 2012 proved that she was only eleven. Natalia’s birth year was 2003, according to the Orphanage, but the Barnetts changed it to 1989.
The Orphanage had enough documents to support the birth year 2003. On the other hand, the tests mentioned that she was older than that. So, we have two stories to think of.
Kristine mentioned how Natalia tried to harm her many times with activities such as mixing bleach with her coffee, pushing her into an electric fence, and threatening the family.
When Natalia Grace started getting treated by professionals to boost her mental health, she agreed to be an adult. However, she did not accept other allegations made by the Barnett family.
According to the trailer of the series, Investigation Discovery’s team will bring the truth, and we might not like it. Till now, Natalia was the villain. However, we will get a new (and real) villain, and the Rubik’s cube will get solved by the end of the series. It will get more dramatic, and it is how Investigation Discovery is on its way to becoming the ultimate destination for criminal stories.
