Wendell herself became a criminal target after making her claims.
The Daily Express noted threats against Wendell’s life led Johansson to move her from Europe to Los Angeles, where she repeated the claim on an episode of Dr. Phil McGraw’s talk show that recently aired.
One unanswered question is what led Wendell to make the claims in the first place.
Wendell says her parents sexually abused her as a child. Those parents refused to submit their own DNA sample to Johansson, saying in a statement that Wendell has a birth certificate and family photos.
Johansson told The Sun that tests are planned to determine if Wendell has leukemia. She reportedly has a serious asthma problem.
Johansson says at the least, Wendell’s claims have brought new attention to one of Europe’s longest unsolved mysteries.
