So I was watching the 20/20 special tonight about Diane Downs (the lady who shot her 3 children in the 80's) and I saw so many similarities between her and Casey Anthony... Did anyone else watch and think this?

hmmm now that you mention it yes. I was just too struck by her likeness to Janelle from 16 & Pregnant (Teen Mom) that I had a hard time concentrating. That girl talks, acts, and is just as selfish as Diane Downs seems. it was really creepy!

In all of Diane Downs interviews it was "me, me, me"... she LOVED all the attention and very rarely mentioned her children. It was very eery to me. She reminded me sooo much of Casey Anthony. I was waiting for them to make reference to Casey but they never did.

And your right Janelle from 16 and pregnant has that same "me, me, me" attitude...SCARY!!!

go look at some of Janelle's pictures side by side. they LOOK so much alike too. their mouth, jaw & lips for words the same way. the way they hold their eyes and express themselves is eerily similar. I wasn't old enough have watched the DD stuff but do recall the movie later. She is one creepy lady!

Here's the Episode just in the first few seconds of that lead-in they show her smiling and it is totally Janelle's arrogant smile. like everyone is a moron and she's here to convince us she's right. which isn't that exactly what the reported said?? LOL

I was thinking about the similarities between Diane Downs ans Casey Anthony yesterday. I read the book a few years before the movie was written.

I'm pretty sure the timing of the airing of the episode was not a coincidence...

That.

20/20 was a repeat from a year or so ago.

I'm very familiar with Downs' story, I live in Oregon, and we young moms followed the trial the same way people are following the Anthony trial.

It definitely occurred to me how many similarities there are in the 2 cases.

I have never heard of this case. I may have to google.


Farrah Fawcett played her in the film about her life. She was very convincing...

I'm surprised a few of you never remembered it. Maybe some of you were too young when it happened. Idk. I have the book but not sure if I ever read it. Yes, Farrah did a convincing job in the movie.

Anyway, I'm glad that they were adopted by the DA and not put in a foster home.


Don't worry about the people in your past; there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.
