Jennifer Morrissey Called Her Victim to Say She was on the Way to Kill HIm

Cheyanne Jessie - Florida


Cheyanne Jessie, 25 of Polk County, Florida called the police last Saturday morning to report her father 50-year-old Mark Weekly and her daughter 6-year-old Meredith Jessie missing. The first thing police noticed upon arrival was the undeniable scent of rotting flesh. Cheyanne told them there was a dead racoon under the house but police were not deterred. They continued to question her and repeatedly found odd discrepancies in her story. Eventually, her father and daughter were found in a shed on the property about 200 feet from the house.

According to police reports, Cheyanne had a new man in her life. Sometime in the days previous to her apprehension, a text message was sent to the man from her fathers phone saying he was terminally ill and wanted only to spend his last year with his granddaughter and gave the man permission to use the house with Cheyanne. But from what investigators have figured out so far, her father and daughter were already dead when that text was sent. Police have determined that Cheyanne stabbed and shot them both weeks before calling the police and left the bodies in the house until the smell became unbearable.  


Cheyanne's family say they believe she had planned this for some time, covering some of the furniture in plastic and always having an excuse to where the two were and when she planned to report them missing. Mark and Jessie's bodies were found in the shed crammed into plastic bags. They also found furniture and rugs splattered with blood inside the house. Sunday, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd held a press conference where he was visibly shaken. 

 "Nothing's more horrific than the murder of a child, except when it’s done by a parent. This is the face and this is the eyes of a cold-blooded murderer," said Judd. "She not only murdered them, but left them in the residence for many days until it became painfully evident she had to move them." 
 Cheyanne is claiming self-defense. She says her father tried to kill her and she won the knife from him in a fight. While stabbing her father in self-defense she accidentally stabbed her daughter.

This sounds a bit like Susan Smith, doesn't it? She isnt the first woman to kill her kids for a man, however. Susan Eubanks in California is another, although her motive was anger at their father. Patricia Blackmon, Caro Soccoro, and Kenisha Berry also killed their children. The most similar case of all may be Robin Lee rowe, who also killed her husband along with her children.

Cheyanne was denied bond. She is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of tampering with evidence. She made her first court appearance yesterday.

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…
