4: Who was Norma?

This episode goes beyond the police and newspaper records and focuses on the lives of Norma and Edith through the eyes of those who knew them.

We meet some of Norma’s relatives and examine information passed down the family line.

We learn about Norma’s growing independence and a secret that remained hidden until 20 years after her death.

And we began to develop a picture of the relationship between mother and daughter, which once again raises questions about Edith’s guilt.
