Case 82

Maria Korp

Maria prioritised her role as a mother above all else. She’d drop whatever she was doing, no matter how important, to ensure she reached her son on time.

Even those who knew little about her knew she was a devoted mother. It was incredibly out of character for her to abandon Damian without explanation… So the prickling question lingered in the backs of concerned minds: ‘Where’s Maria?’
