Natasha Cornett Tennessee

I recently received a letter from Natasha Cornett. She is serving three life sentences and then some for the 1997 murders of the Lillilid family in Tennessee. Natasha and five other kids who considered themselves Satanists kidnapped the family from a roadside rest stop and transported them to a deserted road where they shot and killed the mother, father and daughter.

Natasha was the self proclaimed head of her group of friends in Pikeville, Kentucky. They were outcast kids who had been in and kicked back out of the system several times over. Natasha herself had been diagnosed with a mental disorder and deemed dangerous but released from the hospital for lack of insurance. Her case is actually held up to professionals, as an example of what can go wrong when the government drops the ball. Each year of her life she got progressively worse and so many people could have stopped her along the way.

Natasha is what is termed a 'throw-away girl". She was born into poverty and violence as a child of an affair and never knew another type of life really existed. She was diagnosed bi-polar with anorexia and anxiety and began self-mutilating and using drugs and alcohol while in junior high school. She dropped out in her freshman year and was married to a long-time friend, Steven Cornett, a short time later.

At the time of the murders of Tabitha, Vidar and Delfina Lillelid and the shooting of their son, Peter, Natasha was 18. The group of troubled youths took the families van and fled to Mexico. They were apprehended at the border. Natasha took a plea deal even though evidence and her testimony deny she was the shooter. She avoided the death penalty by doing so, but received three life sentences plus a number of years.
According to reports from her mother, she serves as a mentor inside prison to encourage other girls to get their G.E.D. as she has. In her letter she says that she often feels invisible.
"The only thing people see is this media fabricated version of me."
She offers to help with the death row women projects as well as contribute artwork, etc. I am curious to see how she lives her life in the shadow of the crimes she's committed.


  1. Natasha is nothing like the media makes her out to be. I was her roommate in prison for over a year and very close friend to her the 6 years I was there.

    1. you were a friend of Natasha? it is true what they say about her or she is a good person?

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…
