Fallon Tallent Nashville

This is really motivating for me, although few people will understand it. When I first began this journey I was sitting at my computer at my job at a records company. Id been writing an article about Margo Freshwater for The Saturday Independent, my local paper at the time. Margo was convicted of murder in 1969 and then escaped in 1970 and lived 30 something years on the lamb before being caught. She was eventually released. The news was on in the background and I heard the reporter break through with news of a young woman racing down the interstate in Nashville. Shed killed two cops by hit and run and had cops chasing her for miles. I was mesmerized. So young.

Reports say Fallon was on the tail end of a seven day crack binge that day. She was racing through Mt. Juliet and caught the attention of the police. Her speeds reached over 100 mph and they attempted to stop her using sting strips – the spiked strips police unroll across the road to puncture tires of absconding cars. She had been caught in this manner before and when she saw the strips go down she swerved, killing two policemen; Sergeant Jerry Mundy and Deputy John Musice.

I wrote about her before, she crosses my mind when her name comes up in news reports or I find something of hers online and I always wondered what her story was. The real story. In the post I wrote about her from 2013 her cousin wrote to me and told me a little about her. It wasnt until 2014 that I reached out to her. I sent her a form letter with the available aid I have currently and waited. I was about to give up when I got a letter from her last week. I am very curious to talk with her. I cant imagine a woman so young could end up on such a hard road. She will not be eligible for parole for 102 years.

In her letter she told me that she admitted her crimes and felt she was where she deserved to be. She expresses regret for the lives of the officers and says she thinks about them every single day of her life and prays for their families. She offered to make afghans and crafts to sell on the blog to help pay expenses.

I am really looking forward to getting to know Fallon.

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…
