Pamela Phillips - Arizona

Pamela Phillips
 Life is drastically different for Pamela Phillips these days. She was a wealthy socialite in the Tucson area when she was arrested and charged with the 1996 car bombing murder of her ex husband. I'll just go ahead and say it. These types of cases sound like a load of baloney to me.

The prosecution says she hired an ex-boyfriend to kill her husband.The problem is, they only have a possible motive. No evidence. Just the fact that she had a $2 million insurance policy on him.

They had been married for a while and made a nice living selling Indian bingo halls and slot machines and various and sundry other gambling mechanisms before Congress legally allowed them to open casinos. The real estate market took a downturn and their finances began to dwindle.

Gary Triano, Pamela's husband, was a man on the edge. Hemorrhaging money from every orifice he turned to gambling. He associated and did business with known mafia men. He borrowed money from people you never want to borrow money from. He was abusive and violent and mean.

Once all the shit hit the fan, Pamela did what most women in her shoes would do and shot the gap. She left and made a new life for herself. She moved and began selling real estate and continued to pay the premiums on his insurance policy because she knew he was spiralling out of control and would not do it. He left her as the beneficiary of his policies because they had two children together.

Her trial just started this week and her attorneys say the prosecution is weak and flimsy. She was wealthy of her accord and there is no evidence linking her to the crime. All the evidence shows her relationship with the man who killed her husband but nothing concrete against her.

The police dropped the ball and lost evidence from the crime scene that may have pointed to another killer. The police say they have testimony from friends that say Pamela masterminded the murder and spoke of him dieing before it happened. Triano's daughter also says she did it.

These black widow/gold digger cases scare me. People get so wound up in what they feel is the moral issue they forget to look at the evidence.

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…
