Please keep in mind that this blog often has comments and statements directly from the women on death row. Statements of grief, statements of innocence, statements of regret and sorrow. If bearing audience to these women's feelings, my opinions or those of commenters offends you please do not read on.
I got a letter from Antoinette Frank this week. SInce my move I have not been able to write like I used to.
I did write to Antoinetter last month, explaining my move and my mothers death. She wrote and told me about her new book being published in 2007.
She had published a small booklet with a religious publisher last year but I was never able to get a copy.
Im not sure if this is the same publisher but from her letter I am led to believe that it is a traditional publisher. Im anxious to get her next letter and hope she goes into more detail.
She also forwarded a letter to me from her brother. Also incarcerated. Im not sure for what. He expresses his sympathy on my moms passing and relates his own tragedy. His daughter has passed away and he tried to connect with me on that level.
Antoinette was a police officer who, with her cousin, orchestrated and comitted a roberry of a Chineese restaurant that she moonlighted at as a guard. After hours she attempted the robbery which went afoul and killed a fellow police officer- her partner- and two children of the restaurants owner.
Antoinette was actually on duty at the time and responded to the call of the robbery she had just commited.
