Sheila LaBarre New Hampshire

From http://www.authorkevinflynn.com/kf/LaBarre_case.html:

Sheila LaBarre used her sharp mind and raw sexuality to her advantage her whole life.  She preyed on "lost souls," befriending them, taking some of them as lovers.  She's also suspected of killing them in the most brutal of ways.  Is she evil, or insane?

On Sunday, April 2nd, 2006, a Revere, MA police dispatcher followed up on a tip about a woman wanted out of New Hampshire. The woman gave a false name and was arrested with $80,000 in cash and checks.  Cops identified her because her picture was on the front page of the newspaper.  The headline read: "JUST PLAIN CRAZY."

A week earlier, New Hampshire investigators had discovered bones and other remains among a burned mattress on her farm.  There was also a pet rabbit covered in blood. The remains of 24-year old Kenneth Countie were so badly burned that identification...let alone finding evidence of homicide...was going to be a challenge.

Countie had an undiagnosed form of autism and the mental capacity of a 12 year old. After a blind date, he moved to her Epping, NH farmhouse.  When the two were spotted in Wal-mart,she was pushing his bruised and battered body in a wheel chair and was piling diesel fuel containers on his lap.  When police visited the farm to check on Countie’s welfare, they discovered a meaty human bone sticking out of a smoldering burn pit.

Neighbors in the small town of Epping shared rumors about the 48-year-old woman, who moved to NH in 1986 after answering a personal ad from elderly chiropractor Bill LaBarre.  She was known for being flirtatious and tempestuous, but neighbors also knew she could be violent.  When Dr. LaBarre died suddenly in 2000, relatives wondered aloud if Sheila has poisoned him for the property.  In the years after Dr. LaBarre died, several young men had lived on the farm and most were seen beaten or bloody.

LaBarre slipped away from the cops tailing her, and hitched a ride from Stephen Martello.  The two had wild sex in a hotel room outside of Boston.  LaBarre told him she was an angel who had come back to life to rid the world of pedophiles.


She had grown up as Sheila Bailey in Fort Payne, AL, the youngest of six children.  Her first marriage lasted eight weeks, when her 19-year old husband discovered Sheila had been locking his toddler in a closet.  She moved to Chattanooga with her second husband, but dreamed of being swept away by a rich suitor.


The Countie murder case took an unusual turn as authorities discovered new evidence on LaBarre's farm.  Hundreds of cops spent 17 days searching the 115 acre property and beyond.  They found evidence of older burn pits and blood splatter so old it had layers of dust in it.  They also found clothes belonging to Michael Deloge, another man who had been living at the farm and vanished into thin air.

In February 2008, Sheila LaBarre changed her plea to not guilty by reason of insanity.  She confessed to the killings of Countie and Deloge, but claimed she was crazy when she did it.

As the murder trial of Sheila LaBarre approached in May 2008, major questions about this saga remained.  How did Kenneth Countie and Michael Deloge die? Did she poison Dr. LaBarre in an effort to obtain his million-dollar farm?  Was she legally insane at the time of the killings?

And the most puzzling question of all: who really is Sheila LaBarre?  How could she commit such a crime of brutal execution and of wicked intention?

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…
