Jennifer Morrissey Called Her Victim to Say She was on the Way to Kill HIm

The dark side of society can be as fascinating as it is scary. The psychology of murder can captivate scholars and the average joe alike with its violent twists and turns. For many people the complexities of murder and violent crime become more than just a job or a hobby and become a personal passion. There are several tours of famous murder sites across the country for those who are interested in criminal history and murderabilia.




The manson murders will forever be known across the world as one of the most horrific murder sprees in history. Charles manson and his hippy family communed together on an old movie ranch and conspired to wreak havoc with murder and mayhem throughout the valleys of Southern California. They commited two sets of murders in two seperate houses in California that still stand today. There are several tours of these sites as well as those including the ranch where the Manson family lived and sites of other crimes.



The Villisca ax murders took place in 1912 in a residential farm house in villisca, Iowa. Josiah B. Moore, his wife, his four children and two neighbor children were axed to death as they lay in bed. The mystery of who murdered this family and the two small girls was never solved. The ax murder house, cemetary where the victims are buried and a museum are all available to tour and peruse. Many stories surround the deaths in the home. The owners, visitors and guests have tales of ghostly apparitions, strange sounds and unexeplained pheominon in the house. Psychics have claimed to feel spirit auras in the house and have recorded incidents on tape. Overnight bookings are also available.



These types of tours give a special insight to the crimes that would otherwise be impossible. Spending time inside the same space where once a grisley murder occurred makes it impossible to look at the crimes like a story in a book but realize the true depths of human loss for those involved.

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…
