Jessica Burlew Arizona

Jessica Burlew, 16, diagnosed with schizophrenia and autism, had a 43-year-old boyfriend, a one Mr. Jason Ash. Her mom, Tracey Woodside, knew all about it and often left the couple in her apartment alone to have sex. Ahem. Questionable decision, Mom.

Early January 2014, as the Goth couple had rough but apparently consensual sex, Jessica strangled Jason to death with an electric cord because he didn't say the safe word. He also had been cut several times which Jessica says she did with a razor in an attempt to revive him.

He seemed to be an overgrown kid. “i like to dissect girls ... did you know i’m utterly insane?” he wrote on social media just five days before his death.

This girl reminds me so much of Alyssa Bustamante. She sees herself as a Goth kid and posted pics
of herself in black clothes, piercings and weird, thick makeup.  Her YouTube videos are full of her own songs about death, decaying bodies and morbid topics. On a website called Vampire Freaks, Burlew went by the moniker “soultaker11” and she posted pictures of herself with different hairstyles and colors. She lists herself as 19 years old and as “pansexual.”

She called her mother at some point after the killing and told her it was an accident. She has been arrested and charged as an adult with first degree murder. Her mother has told reporters that it was an accident. I am wondering why she isn’t being treated as a victims since she was having sex with a 43 year old man. That’s statutory rape, ladies and gents. The age of consent in Arizona is 18. I also wonder if the mother will be brought up on child neglect or anything like that.

I think this is pretty obviously a case of an abused and neglected girl who doesn't have the life skills to make practical decisions. If her mom thought it was OK for her to date and have sex with a 43 year old Goth kid, I dont think this girl has ever had a chance. I found this support site for her that has many details of her life. Check it out. Free Jessie

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…
