Glenna Duram's Parrot Gave Her Away for Murder

Muncys 3 Amigos, Carol King, Michelle Tharp, Shonda Walter, death row, SCI Muncy

I ran into this website quite by accident. It is the site of the three women on the row in PA; Carol King, Shonda Walter and Michelle Tharp. Beth Markman is also there but I believe she has been removed from death row.

Michelle Tharp is the one who wrote me the threatening letters a few years back. She was extremely angry at me for this blog.

It started with Beth Markman who I wrote to first. I was contacted by a social worker in P.A. who had some questions about her. When I went to her for the answers she became very closed lipped and told me she wanted nothing else to do with me.

I eventually heard from both Carolyn and Michelle who wrote scathing letters about what a horrible person I am. I became friends with Michelle after a while and I truly tried to help her in any way I could. She was hard to work with because she would give me permission to print her pictures or parts of her letters and then get angry when I would do so.

Eventually a trouble maker named Paul from across the pond began to get interested in her and would relate sordid tales to her about the members of our Support Death Row Women group and ostracized her from us all. There was a general consensus that he was using his "concern" for Michelle and others to fuel a strange perversion for bonded and chained women.

At least once a month I am contacted by someone who has written to Michelle and has to stop due to her extremely paranoid and odd nature.

I tried to write to Carolyn after a local church donated books specifically for her. She told me in no uncertain terms that she wanted nothing to do with me. It was a few days later that a fiasco broke out (Im not sure of these details) where she was removed from the ALIVE support site for continuously trying to solicite money from her supporters.

No one can fully understand what the women are living through in such a place and what happens to them mentally after a while but that sort of behavior is so counterproductive for them.

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…
