“That was days after I buried my daughter. She was just a father who wanted to believe him. I didn’t know enough about the subject back then and how badly it had failed in the years before. We all know how she has failed her ever since. She is a liar, she is a pathetic liar,” Mr. Guttenberg said in an interview.
