Shawna Forde - Arizona

 I was researching cases one day last month and came across something in a trades paper for Arizona corrections officers about the Minutemen, Shawna Forde's very own vigilante anti-immigration group.

I had checked out Shawna earlier this year but her case didn't interest me. She just seemed like a crazy little white lady with ethnicity issues. Nothing interesting here folks... move along...

Seeing that the man was still reporting about her antics in their own private scandal sheets, I decided to check in on her again and looked her up in the Arizona Department of Corrections website.

If you scroll down to the bottom of the page you'll find a list of her most recent infractions and disciplinary actions. The most recent being in November of 2013. She's definitely a fighter.

I sent her a letter about this blog and she responded with a very nice letter where she said I was sent from heaven. She has been in solitary confinement for over two years and is constantly in arm and leg shackles.

She does claim innocence and, much like Debra Milke, she has some proof. One of the main witnesses of the prosecution, the mother of the victim, said she could not positively identify Shawna and could not pick her out of a photo lineup. There is no DNA link between Shawna and the scene of the crime. She maintains that she was never at the crime scene.

What got her arrested was the talk going around town that the Minuet Men were going to rob drug dealers to fund their operations. The Flores family were known in the area for being drug dealers. The murders weren't considered a hate crime despite the link to the militia because it was meant as a robbery of a dealer, no matter his color. 

Shawna says that despite her affiliations with the group, she had nothing to do with the crime and would not have condoned murder, much less that of a child, no matter the nationality.

These types of cases are always so convoluted and corrupt. Shawna had problems and issues and run in's with the law her entire life. That doesn't make her wrong. Small towns are notorious for sluggish lawmen and snaky D.A.'s. 

Shawna has expressed an interest in writing some things for the website. I hope she will write us one of her op-ed pieces but Ill settle for whatever she feels like sending.

  1. Yep. That's one plucky child murderer.

    She might have lost her freedom, but she hasn't lost her smile.

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…
