Glenna Duram's Parrot Gave Her Away for Murder

Michelle & Alyssa Gipson Murdered their Husband/Father Arizona

Michelle and Young Steven
Michelle Gibson enlisted the help of her daughter Alyssa 17, son Steven, 15 and a 16 year old friend, Erik McBee, to murder her husband in 2013. The household was well known by police from the many domestic violence calls that always ended in wasted time because Michelle would refuse to press charges. Steven was charged with assaulting an officer and DUI once.
On March 1, 2013 911 received a call for help from Michelle saying,
"There's blood everywhere! I'm with my kids and I just got home and my husband's out in the garage dead."
Steven was found in his garage beaten and stabbed to death. The crime scene held several questions which eventually led to their convictions. Thats when the plot unfolded. Michelle had enlisted her children and their friend Erik to kill her husband saying she was afraid of him and he was going to kill her or the children eventually. Erik agreed to participate for $2000.

 The murder-for-hire plan involved incapacitating her husband with chloroform while he slept in his bed. Using the victim's truck, they would take his body to a nearby park where one of the teen killers would shoot him in the back of the head. To make the murder look like a drug deal gone bad, they planned to spread pills on and around his body.

     As is often the case in murder-for-hire schemes, things did not go as planned. At ten-thirty on the night of February 28, 2013, Erik McBee used a baseball bat to beat Steven in the head as he slept in his bed. Steven Gibson, Jr. then stabbed his dying father three times in the chest, and slashed his throat. Using a dolly, Erik and Steven rolled Steven Sr.'s corpse into the garage. Because Erik McBee fled the scene at the sound of a distant police siren, the dead man never made it to the park. Later that day, Erik, a Popeye's Chicken employee, turned himself into the police.

   When Michelle Gibson returned home around midnight with her daughter, she allegedly helped her son clean up the bloody murder scene. At two that morning, after disposing of physical evidence, Michelle called 911 to report the discovery of her husband's body in the garage.

Steven Jr plead guilty to second degree murder and received 22 years.
Michelle received natural life without parole.

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…
