Her family

In the documentary, during the court proceedings, a forensic pathologist tried to illustrate family history of abuse. Cyntoia’s grandmother, her aunt and her mother all struggled with several mental health disorders, including bipolar disorder, suicidal thoughts, etc. In fact, Gina, Cyntoia’s mother has the word “suicide” tatttooed across her upper arm.

Her grandmother admitted that she was married as a teenager. She left her husband and he sent a local “thug” over to the house to “teach her a lesson.” The man raped her and she had a child as a result of the assault.

Later, Gina speaks to her mother and says that she was forced to give her daughter, Cyntoia up for adoption.
