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.
