Mother tracks teenage daughter when starts going astray; doesn’t prevent her murder, but at least helps her track down the killer

19 Jan


When Wendy Poulsen’s teenage daughter, Dani, began acting out — running with the wrong crowd, using marijuana and dropping out of high school — the worried mom began to secretly monitor her whereabouts.

The office manager invested in a tracking device and hid it in the trunk of the 18-year-old’s car. As she told The Post: “It gave me a bit of peace of mind.”

She had more reason than most to resort to such a measure – Poulsen’s younger brother, Scott, suddenly vanished at the age of 25. It took police more than two years to find some remains of his body. The investigation is now a cold case.

Tragically, despite Poulsen’s best efforts to rein in her daughter, Dani’s life also came to a distressing, premature end. She died of a fentanyl overdose on Sept. 1, 2019, shortly before her 19th birthday.

“She was my everything,” the mom of Minneapolis, Minn., said, adding, “There are times when I can’t figure out how to keep living.”

But she is comforted by the fact that she was able to track down her daughter’s body quickly — and later identify her killer — with the device.

How comforting, I guess…

Poulsen adopted Dani from Kazakhstan with her now ex-husband, Gerald Sommerfeld, 61, when she was six months old. She said their longed-for child had a happy upbringing, earned A grades at school and practiced sports like snowboarding, karate and rugby.

Ah; unstable marriage which ended, and interracial adoption

Sorry this MN Scandi liberal chick’s life sucks so bad, but…

… some people’s lives seem to be purposed to serve as a warning for others, how not to live…

    High trust society always falls to Low-trust society as this Scandi shows.

    Unless we have rule by Righteous Kings and Judges with power over the sword to enforce Righteousness.

    Lessee now:

    – Minnesotan? Check
    – Of Scandinavian ethnicity? Check
    – Divorced? Check
    – Of advanced age when adopting the child (a.k.a. almost old enough to be the child’s grandparent)? Check
    – “Politically left of center” goes without saying, so Check.

    Yeah, that poor child never had a chance with a mother like that.

    Judging by Serebro music videos, young Kazakh gals (front seat) seem kinda wild:
