Mariana T. Lesnic Shot and Killed Trucker at a Rest Stop

I did some house cleaning. A little redecorating around here, can ya tell?
I know, a prison reform blog that is all pink and sparkly is a little odd but I like it. It fis my personality and we can all count our blessings that I dont have a big ol' Hello Kitty on here somewhere.

NNow that I finaly finished this huge writing assignment for my online content job (thanks Nikki)I can get back to my book for a few.

I wrote a letter to Michelle Byroms son. He is actually in Parchman, the Mississippi prison that has been making headlines for its horrendous conditions.

I also wrote another letter to federal inmate Angela Johnson. She seems like such a neat lady. She made me this really beautiful card, I was amazed.

Lastly, I sent a copy of the Florida Support newsletter to Kimberley McCarthy.

I miss Kim. I really enjoyed writing to her. She used to be married to the leader of the Black Panthers at one time. She is convicted of killing her elderly neighbor inan atmpt to find drug money. I wonder where she is on her appeals. There was some reason to believe that her dealer had done it. I cant remember all her details now. She stopped writing to me or returning my etters eary ast year. I think it is becuse I never sent her any money. I had sent her books and magazines and she only complained that I should have asked her first because she already had a copy. So now I only send her the newsletters and books periodically.

Today I will get my house (my real actual home!)clean and prepare another newsletter to go out. I think I will write to Wendi Adriano. I wrote to Nicole Diar last week and am curious to see if she writes back.

I had a wahm site up for the last year. Managed Mayhem. I loved helping mommies find work at home but the site that hosted it was constantly giving me problems and so Ive decided to move it to good ol blogger. Ill keep you updated.

Brenda Andrew Execution date

Brenda Andrew is the only woman on Oklahoma death row. She is there for the murder of her husband by her and her boyfriend James Pavatt.

     Brenda does not answer letters. It seems she may still have a bit of that pretentious attitude left over from her days as a respected deacons wife. Those days are over, hun.

     There is no scheduled execution date for Brenda yet. Oklahoma lists its dates of execution for the prison she is in here.

     Every time I read about this case I am utterly amazed at how stupid these two people were. She may as well have advertised their guilt on a billboard in front of the house. Both Andrew's and Pavatt's appeal were systematically denied without comment in 2008.

The little Scorned episode "The Sunday School Killers" at the top of this post is about Brenda and James and its only $1.99 so its worth the money.

Kelly "Turtle" Tibbs and her Chick Posse

Anybody ever hear about Kelly Tibbs? I read about her case years ago and was recently contacted by a friend of hers. I got to thinking about her again. I cant really believe she didnt get the death penalty.

She was a lesbian ring leader in her little town. She and her teenage friends were a little crew of lesbians that hung together and lived together. None had a steady home, all were from broken families somehow torn by substance problems or abuse or just plain neglect.

Kelly was the leader. Her nickname "Turtle" was the name she went by exclusively and all her followers tatooed a tiny turtle on their hands. This group was so odd. They were PeterPans lost boys and Turtle was peter pan. They traveled in packs and found food and lodging when they could. Everything was a game and they frolicked around everywhere they went.

Eventually a new girl came into the mix and began a half-assed relationship with one of the other girls. Emotions flew and she got murdered. Beat to death. …

Texas May Have an Innocent Woman on Death Row

Kimberly Cargill is on death row for the killing of her mentally retarded babysitter, Cherry Walker. Ms. Walker was found burned on the side of a rural road in Texas. Doctors had diagnosed her as mentally challenged in 1995, saying she had the living skills of a 9 year old.

Witnesses, some her own family, testified that Cargill was abusive and violent toward them and to Cherry Walker. Cargill was arrested in 2010 on child abuse charges and a custody trial was pending in which Cherry Walker was slated to testify. The state alleged that Kimberly killed Cherry to keep her from testifying.

Kimberly has always said that she did not kill Cherry but that she suffered from a seizure as she was riding in the car with Kimberly. She had been prone to seizures and Kimberly panicked. She tried to revive her, but could not. When she realized Cherry was dead, she set her on fire in an attempt to rid any DNA from her body. She was certain she would be charged with her death.

She was convicted. She wa…
