Killer Letter Give-Away


The past months have been really busy for The Woman Condemned.

I met with the lovely Ms. Krause about a documentary she is filming about women who love men on death row. We had a lovely lunch at the Coffee Cafe and I got to talk with her about Matthew Perkins and Dane Abdool and Richard Ramirez and some of the women I know who love men like these guys and how easy, easy, easy it can be.

Matthew Perkins was given three life sentences and I cried for days over that. Sometimes the world disappoints me so bad. I started talking with Matthews family and I truly enjoy that. Just like Matthew, the ones I have met are brave and strong and loving. I hope to get to see Matthew very soon.

I sponsored the blog tour with some of today's heaviest hitters in true crime. Gary King, R. Barri Flowers, Dane Batty, Bonnie Kearnene of Bonies Blog of Crime all participated with some really great posts.  We had a good time and told a lot of great stories.

Most recently I have guest blogged on Erica Diamonds award winning blog Women on the Fence about what we do here and why. I have some great comments from some brlliant ladys. Erica has some phenomenal readers.

Richard Ramirez and I have been pen pals for a year now He sent me a really nice anniversary gift. I found out that I have a family tie to David Berkowitz, the Son of Sam killer. I will be writing him soon to see if that can benefit either of us.

What will the rest of the Autumn bring? I can hardly wait.

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…
