That is one possible angle, the mother being silent through all this may be a clue. I really don't care if the woman is Jerry's daughter. Whether it was kind of crappy is up for debate because again no one knows what was said between the mother and Jerry back in 1996. MAybe she didn't want Jerry in her child's life maybe Jerry strong armed her. Maybe this woman is Jerry's daughter maybe she isn't and is trying to extort him. Ultimately the system will decide.
