Dr. Phil: Lori Wanted Her Sister To Meet Her Before She Met Her Mother
When Lori was two months old, her mother murdered her two children in during a total mental breakdown, but snapped out of it before she killed Lori, too. When she was committed to a mental institute, Lori’s mother had another daughter, Marlinda – a sister to Lori. For the last two years, Lori has been trying to track down Marlinda because she didn’t want her sister to go in search of family, only to find her mentally crippled mother who had killed off her other two children sitting in an institute.
Troy Dunn came to Dr. Phil today and reunited the sisters in a tearful reunion. Troy really had his work cut out for him in reuniting Marlinda and Lori because Marlinda was born to Lori’s mother while she was incarcerated in a mental hospital.
Dr. Phil: Lori Met Her Biological Mother
Lori may not have wanted her sister Marlinda to meet her biological mother, but she wasn’t exactly eager to meet her, either. However, in her 20s, Lori did meet her mother one night after she got a call from a doctor she had contacted to try and track her mother down, telling her that her mother was at a bus stop waiting to be picked up.
Lori and her husband, Grant, drove down to the bus station with a gun under the seat. They found an older, grey-haired lady sitting alone at the bus station. Looking at her mother, Lori wondered how her father could still love her—the two shared a striking resemblance with one another.
Dr. Phil: Troy Dunn Sisters Reunited
Troy Dunn told Lori that he had found her sister and brought her out, introducing the two for the first time on the show. Lori was totally astonished and overjoyed, especially when she found out that the two sisters lived only 15 miles from each other. Marlinda was equally interested in meeting Lori, and wondered if she had any nieces or nephews. It really could have been put on a Hallmark card titled “Sisters Reunited.”
Right from the outset, though, Dr. Phil wanted Marlinda to know the truth about where her mother is now.
