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.



A letter from Michelle Byrom today. I hadnt heard from her in some time and she explained that she has had some trouble with a guard. She said I was being harrassed by a Captain here. I guess shes either jealous because I have a TV or more likely because Im white.. She also jumped on another girl, the new girl on death row here. [That is Lisa Jo Chamberlain]Shook her down and told her to stand outside her door and if she moved she'd kick her ass."

Her health , which has always been a problem for her, has gotten worse in recent days. "They checked my blood last week. They are supposed to check it every 2 -3 months but last time was in February. My Thyroid was off the charts then and they were supposed to up my dose, never did. My cholestrol was sky high, nothing done about it. With my Lupus and the depression its a triple whammy when the thyroid acts up. No thyroid meds. If I dont get out of here soon, Ill be shipped out in a body bag."
