Trans Woman in Killer Butt Injection Case Dies

Tracey Lynn Garner, the transgender woman who gave DIY butt injections in her basement which ended up killing a woman has died in prison. We first discussed Tracey in 2014 when she wa sentenced for her role in the death of Karima Gordon.

Tracy Lynn Garner, 54, was found guilty of depraved-heart murder and conspiracy to commit wire fraud in the 2012 death of Karima Gordon, 37, whom she had given illegal silicone butt injections too. Garner is not a nurse, but an interior designer who apparently gives butt injections on the side.Prosecutors said Gordon was referred to Garner by Natasha Stewart, an adult entertainer known as Pebbelz Da Model. Stewart was convicted of manslaughter in Garner's death and received a seven-year sentence.

Authorities initially identified Garner as a man, Morris Garner, after the arrest. Her attorney subsequently said Garner was born male and had sex reassignment surgery.

Garner was taken from Central Mississippi Correctional Facility to a hospital in Jackson,…

Kira Kastenhuber Killed Her BFF

Kira Kastenhuber killed her friend, Desirae Withey, a single mother of two small girls. Although you could hardly call the two women friends by the time she killed her. Maybe never. Not really close friends, anyway. They both worked at Creative Food Ingredient, a baked ingredient company in Perry, New York. A lot of locals worked there are people actually move to that town in order to work there.  Not only did Kira work there but so did her ex husband and her ex boyfriend.

Desirae first lived with her parents when she got the job. She moved in with her sister in Perry a short time later and then into an apartment of her own at 84 Borden Avenue with her two Zoe, 2, and Sophie, 6. Her friends called her Desi and she was a budding artist with dreams of art school.

Desi knew Kira and had no problems with her. Even when she started to date one of Kira's ex boyfriends, she never tried to cause an issue over it. Kira, on the other hand, told everyone she did not mind but it was obvious s…

How to Use Your True Crime Obsession to Make Money

Start logging your time on the ID Channel and let’s make some money
We are crazy addicted to true crime. While we have been into checking out the misfortune of others since the dawn of time, we now demand television channels, books, podcasts, and live streaming access to all things crime, criminal and (hopefully) ghastly. And documentaries. Do not forget the documentaries. AAllllll the documentaries.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could hang out our signs as armchair investigators and start raking in the cash? We can, Detective. Oh yes, we can. Here’s how:

There is a whole lot that goes into a blog, including finding the perfect niche to blog about. Starting a true crime blog means you already have a popular niche. Then just customize it. Find the perfect niche. Niche it good. Get really nichey. Are you a mom of 10 foster kids? Bam!…

Tina Brown, Heather Lee, & 16 YO Britnee Miller Killed Over Teen Jealousy

The first thing I thought of when I found this lady, Tina Brown, was that old Texas case where that mom went ballistic and tried to hire a hitman to kill her daughters cheerleading rival. Wanda something or other was her name. My sister lives close to her still.

This story is even more brutal, if you can believe that. Tina's 16-year-old daughter, Britnee was on and off besties with another gal in their Pensacola Florida trailer park, Audreanna Zimmerman. Like many teen friendships, it ran hot and cold depending on the current drama of the trailer park. In March of 2010, it was frigid and it was all over a boy.

Police reports say Britnee complained to her mom, Tina, and a neighbor, 27-year-old, Heather Lee, about the ongoing arguments with Audreanna, already a mom of two at 19-years-old. The trio decided to find her and hem her up so Britnee could fight her. Things got out of hand,

They found Audreanna walking along a dirt road. Tina Brown used a stun gun on her and beat her with …

My Daughter Has Felony Drug Convictions Now What?

I got an email today from a woman in distress over her drug addicted daughter in jail. She asks for advice and I thought someone out there may have some experience to share with her. Feel free to comment or send me an email and I'll forward it along to her.

Hi Kelly,  
I stumbled across your website after receiving a letter from my 30 year old daughter in jail. She goes to court 12/7/17 on many felony drug related charges spanning over a few years.
Of course, I have known she was using drugs, perhaps not to the extent. I think mommy-denial plays a part. I allowed her to move back home on the home incarceration program, but that only lasted a month before the lies, stealing & drug use re-appeared. I thought I was going to have a nervous breakdown while she was here!
I am trying to practice tough love, and honestly sleep better knowing (hoping) she isn't able to use drugs or break into my house again. Her letter is saying the expected, going to re-hab and getting her life togeth…

Family by Proxy - Love, Marriage and Family in Women's Prison

Life in prison for women can be just as violent and deadly a place as it is for men. Women with life sentences know that prison is their home for the rest of their lives. Others will come and go, but they will remain. With this knowledge and ultimate acceptance, comes the need to nest, adjust, acclimate, and make the best of what is now their forever home. While male lifers go through the same process, women do it in an entirely domestic way. Males tend to become more isolated as years go by. Women do the opposite. They form families by proxy and each member fulfills a vital, and oddly colloquial, role within the family unit.
Women who have a life sentence to serve start out like everyone else. It is after the years accumulate that she begins to take a place of honor among other long-term inmates and the newbies quickly learn she is the one to respect. Some women take on this role with a firm hand and hard line. Others are more soft and motherly, keeping to themselves and imparting t…
