Joseph Lyle Menendez

That Nora and all the other TikTokkers who are committed to the cause are heard by many people, becomes clear in the new documentary Menendez Brothers: misjudged? But it doesn’t stop there. “Joseph Lyle Menendez has personally sent me voice messages.”

“It started with Lyle’s wife. She messaged me on Facebook: “I’m happy with what you’re doing for Lyle and his brother,” she typed. I thought this was already very special, but then it became even more extreme. On August 16, I received a voice message through his wife’s account. I expected a message from the woman herself, but it turned out to be Lyle. “I’m grateful for what you’re doing, Nora, and I hope you keep doing this. You and others are discussing our case again and hopefully things will change. Greetings, Lyle.’ At the time, I was in shock and couldn’t believe he had texted me.”

“I thanked him, said that I will continue to fight for this cause and I hope for a reduced sentence. That would mean the boys get 30 years for manslaughter instead of life for murder.”

In addition to being active on TikTok, Nora has also played a role in the new discovery+ documentary. “Last year I was passed New York Times approached, but unfortunately I saw that too late. Finally I got a message from an editor at Lion TV and he forwarded me to discovery+.”

Nora was interviewed twice for the documentary. “First of all, I was sent a stand for my telephone and a lamp. This was really scary the first time, because I had never done this before. The second time went better and the reactions from my fans are also positive. Unfortunately, I also get a lot of negative reactions. I’m supposedly stupid and young and shouldn’t stand up for the brothers. But this just gives me more motivation to keep going.”
