Donna Gentile Story and Why Teens Run Away

Donna Gentile Story and Why Teens Run Away


On this episode of Ready for Love radio, we are going to talk about an unsolved true crime case from San Diego in 1985, the Donna Gentile case. She was a beautiful young woman in her early 20s from Philadelphia who had run away from home in her late teens. It is an interesting case and my guest is her first cousin, Anita DeFrancesco, who has written a book about the case, and is continuing to give a voice to Donna and to other victims as well. Join us to learn much more about Donna’s story, the details surrounding the case, and we’ll dig into details on why teens run away.
