Cold Case: Brenda Banaski Missing Teen

I thought it had been a while since the last nut came out of the woodwork. I checked my email this morning to find that one has indeed squeezed out to dispense some of that well-known wit and wisdom I so missed.

I debated printing her name but have decided to give the little precious a chance to leave me alone first. She berated me for some of the things Ive said about some of the girls and printing their letters. Just in case there is another little nut in the wings somewhere drumming up the nerve and breaking out their dictionary for a nice long email tirade on the injustices I purport on this blog let me answer them here for everyone.

Why do I write these women and then complain about them? Because I feel for them, I wouldn't want to be in their shoes and am all to aware that in the USA it could very well happen. I reach out to them and offer support emotionally and financially. Sometimes they get weird on me. Sometimes they do nutty, crazy shit that pisses me off. I once had Sister Kathleen OShea calm me down (after the episode with Michelle Tharp- PA)by relating an episode she endured where one particular gal ripped her letter to shreds and sent it back to her. They flip out, it happens. Lets face it some of them are there because they have actually done the terrible things they are accused of. So it stands to reason that they aren't wrapped to tight upstairs and may be prone to irrational anger. Some are even not-so-nice people who will try to take money from you and abuse your offer of friendship (GASP). Just because they are on death row doesn't automatically make them nice people. (My, that is an odd statement isn't it?)

I complain about them but continue to write because I'm not phony. I'm real. I have real feelings and still care about them even when they piss me off. They are human. I still feel that death row is not a crime deterrent and serves no valid purpose. I don't think anyone should be there. Not the innocent or guilty, the good, the bad or the ugly. Except maybe people who write annoying emails.

This gal also asked if they like having their letters posted on the net and their fights portrayed like a soap operas. YES! They want everyone to know that they are real women- they are human. They have problems and fights and real life predicaments. Sometimes they have bigger issues and situations than we do. They want the world to know what its like where they are and what their lives are like.

I have reason to believe this gal writes to a gal that is KNOWN to be a swindler and con artist. She has been scandal and rumors circulating about her among support group for years. Her pen pals have complained for various reasons. What you have to realize, dear, is that instead of trying to place a false smile on the situation you take it for what it is and carry on. Arnt your convictions strong enough to face the situation head on?

So, that being said- please toddle off.


  1. Your passion is amazing Kelly, and I am glad that there are people out there that will stick to their passions even if it gets annoying, or a bit crazy at times!

    Sounds like you have your hands full! I hope this to will pass by without too much turmoil! Hang in there you are doing a great thing for fellow females!

  3. Don't let the losers get you down - heck, I'm working on that very same thought today! Hugs!

  4. Ah, you can't even spell correctly, and really, I cannot understand much of what you are writing. How long have you been doing this and where did you receive your education? My personal and biased opinion is that whether or not these women committed said crimes,they are probably crazier than a 2 bob watch anyway. I say, they might not deserve to die, but don't let them out on an unsuspecting public without some extreme psychiatric intervention!!!

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…
