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.

Here she is folks, 15-year-old Alyssa Bustamante, who dug a grave and then waited a week for the right time to kill a 9 year old girl for no other reason but for the experience. She confessed and led police to the body. Missouri will not sentence her to death. We know already that she has been treated for mental issues and raised in an unstable family by a grandparent. She has attempted suicide on previous occassions.
If she had been treated correctly previously would her 9 year old victim still be alive?
