Diane Downs' 1988 Prison Interview
One point of contention is Ann's claim that Diane became pregnant before her trial because she is fulfilled by pregnancy. "That is what I believe," Ann says. "Diane obviously disagrees with me."
Watch Diane talk about her pregnancy.
Diane says the reason she got pregnant was because it was a bad time in her life. "I was extremely lonely," Diane says. "I missed my kids desperately. I had just seen Christie on the 2nd of October, and it's like opening a wound and pouring salt in. I was extremely lonely beyond belief and beyond explanation. On October 13, I just went and got pregnant because I was so lonely."
