Jason Wickenhagen - Washington

Jason Wickenhagen Letter
Kenneth Bianchi referred a fellow inmate at Washington State Penitentiary to me in early March, Mr. Jason Wickenhagen.

His letter starts out fairly forlorn and basically stays that way save for a few dull flashes of hope when he mentions what Mr. Bianchi has given him in regards to my services.

 “In all honesty I don’t know why I’m writing. This kind of thing never works for me but I figured what the hell. I’ll give it one more try and after reading some of your letters my hopes got higher.” 

The next part of his letter, I suppose is in reference to Mr. Bianchi’s infamous stardom and his own lack thereof.

“I’m not anybody special. I can understand why people don’t write. After the things I've done in life I certainly don’t deserve it. This isn’t self-pity. I just what I did was wrong and unforgivable. I am doing life without parole for the murder of a child.”

 Rachel Johanna Carver was Jason’s niece. His wife and Rachael’s mother were sisters. Sadly, Rachel had been placed in Rene and Jason Wickenhagen’s home for safety. Her father had sexually molested her sister and mother. Rachel was placed in the Wickenhagen’s custody to protect her from her parents.

She came up missing and her Aunt and Uncle dutifully reported it to the police. When her body was found days later, Jason confessed to sexually assaulting and beating her to death on June 14, 1995. At first he told police that three men broke into his home and forced him to beat Rachel to death. He was 23 years old at the time. He said he owed them money. He named names but one of them was out of town at the time of the murder and his story just went downhill from there.

 “I just feel in my heart that I am a better person now. I am still a work in progress but its moving in the right direction. All I want out of life now is to be of help to others. I was so selfish for so long. It is time to give back. I am trying every day.”

I sent Jason a newsletter and a book list. I'll be posting more about his case as he reveals it.

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…
