I think the quoted portion above came from: http://www.bigcountryhomepage.com/ne...ide-identified
ETA:Family members and long-time friends said Kendra Keppler was a fighter. The relatives said that though all of her 6 children were in CPS custody, Keppler fought everyday for them.
She was actually getting a new job and working on getting a house, so she could one day be back with her children. The family did admit Keppler was very secretive when it came to her whereabouts and where she was living.
