Missouri Executed Woman- Bonnie Brown Heady


Bonnie Brown Heady. Wow. Where to begin?
She was a short, fat prostitute with short auburn hair and a bubbly, engaging personality. She was attractive despite her weight and 5’1 height and was often complimented on her shapely legs.

Her common law husband, Carl Austin Hall was the love of her life and she worried and fussed over him until the day they were executed side by side in Missouri’s gas chamber.

She and Carl kidnapped and murdered young Bobby Greanlease from his Catholic school for a ransom. Carl had been dreaming of the crime for years before he’d met Bonnie. In his heart he felt it was the one last crime he would have to pull and he’d be set for life. He had thought about it for so long in fact, he was sure the plan was foolproof.

Once he and Bonnie moved in together he enlisted her help. She posed as the boy’s aunt and told the nuns Bobby’s mother was ill and she had been sent to retrieve him. He was released to her with no trouble from six year old Bobby or the nuns.

She took him straight to Carl and the three of them went deep into the countryside. On a side road Bonnie and Carl got out. Bonnie walked along the roadside while Carl spread a blue plastic sheet in the trunk and set about killing Bobby.

He tried first to strangle him with a length of clothesline but it was too short. Instead, he shot him twice in the face.

They buried the body and spent a few weeks drunk travelling from state to state. When they were finally arrested Carl expressed some remorse and talked of how badly alcohol had affected his life. Bonnie showed no remorse and remained her jovial, comical self.

They were executed in two chairs side by side in the gas chamber. Bonnie and Carl were alone in the death chamber moments before their deaths. No one knows what was said but Carl died with Bonnie’s lipstick on his cheek.

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.

Morgan Smith Florida

Morgan Smith. Wow. Just, wow. She came from a family of mental illnesses with a father who committed suicide. She had spent her life on psychotropic drugs for severe depression and borderline personality disorder, the same thing that causes multiple personalities. She also became a sex slave for Daryl Smith in a long-term relationship that ended with a child.

Their relationship was everything the weird, late night, HBO documentaries say those things are. She met him after work and groveled at his feet in a leather outfit complete with chain leash and dog collar. She licked his boots clean and said thank you after he spanked her ass. She was a complete, total submissive, and seemed to enjoy being that way. She even changed her last name to his legally, even though he would not marry her. He had told her many times; no matter what she did, she would never be his wife.

Eventually he found another woman he was interested in, Andrea Stranko, and left Morgan and their
daughter. It devasta…

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…
