Glenna Duram's Parrot Gave Her Away for Murder

Emilia Carr - Florida

I'm just dipping into this case, having received a short letter from Emilia on Friday. She has this very light-handed dainty flourish of a handwriting style. She asks about educational services for inmates and calls herself a nerd for still loving to learn at her age.

Her case is disturbing on so many levels. Emilia and her boyfriend, Joshua Fulgham had been in an on again-off-again relationship for years with Heather Strong always around for Joshua to go back too. In fact, once Emilia and Josh were engages, she pregnant with his baby, he went back to and married Heather. Things are so weird at this point, that Emilia babysits for them.

Oh, it was bad and just got worse and worse. Constant fighting, threats and violence. Then the battles over child custody with Heather began because Josh has kids with her too. Just one month before Heather was killed, Emilia attacked Heather and held a knife to her throat, demanding she sign a written statement absolving Joshua of criminal charges in hopes of freeing him from prison.

Somehow Emilia and Joshua lure Heather to an old, abandoned trailer behind her mothers house and attack her. Court records say Emilia tried to break her neck but when she couldn't she and Joshua duct taped her hands and feet to a computer chair, placed a plastic bag around her head and duct taped it closed.

She was missing a month before her body was found near an abandoned storage shed in a shallow makeshift grave. Emilia was secretly recorded by police confessing to the crime and relaying details to Joshuas sister. She was arrested and confessed, although she says her confession was only becasue police promised she could go home and be with her kids.

Emilia received the death penalty and Joshua received life with the possibility of parole. Pretty weird,right? I dont know who dropped the ball on that one but thats ridicu-fucking-lous. I dont know her side yet but Im sure Ill find out soon.

Here is a link to the video of her last appeal posted in Feb of 2014.

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.

Kelly "Turtle" Tibbs and her Chick Posse

Anybody ever hear about Kelly Tibbs? I read about her case years ago and was recently contacted by a friend of hers. I got to thinking about her again. I cant really believe she didnt get the death penalty.

She was a lesbian ring leader in her little town. She and her teenage friends were a little crew of lesbians that hung together and lived together. None had a steady home, all were from broken families somehow torn by substance problems or abuse or just plain neglect.

Kelly was the leader. Her nickname "Turtle" was the name she went by exclusively and all her followers tatooed a tiny turtle on their hands. This group was so odd. They were PeterPans lost boys and Turtle was peter pan. They traveled in packs and found food and lodging when they could. Everything was a game and they frolicked around everywhere they went.

Eventually a new girl came into the mix and began a half-assed relationship with one of the other girls. Emotions flew and she got murdered. Beat to death. …

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…
