Glenna Duram's Parrot Gave Her Away for Murder

Nashville Teen Girls Shoot it Out over Family Disrespect

I was doing my thing early yesterday morning. My spouse gets up at the unbelievably absurd 3:30 a.m. At times, which are few and far between, I get up with him and drink coffee and fix him a little brekkie for the hour or two drive to work. Yesterday happened to be one of those mornings.
So we sat, he and I, hours before sunrise and watched our favorite morning Newscasters on News 2 in Nashville. They are a funny lot with jokes and snide remarks plenty enough to start any crime writers day off right. I'm snickering away when I heard it.

A 14 year old girl, Treyonta Burleson  in Nashville had been shot. Shot twice, actually, in the chest. By who, you might ask? Who in the hell would shoot a 14 year old, little slip of a girl? One who had been involved in a neighborhood movement to improve the conditions in the projects on Charles E. Davis Boulevard.

Neighbors reported hearing a large group of girls screaming and fighting and a loud noise like a car crashing.One witness telling the newscaster that she heard the noise and came around the corner to see the small girl laying on the sidewalk covered in blood.

The shooter is 18 year old female, Antwana Smith of Hart Lane. The two girls engaged in an
argument around 4:40 p.m. Tuesday according to police reports. It escalated and Antwanna went into an apartment, got a gun and went back out, shooting Treyonta twice in the chest.

She went back into an apartment but police were able to coax her out and she admitted to the shooting saying the younger girl had disrespected her family. Shes charged with criminal homicide and should have appeared in court today.

This brings up an ever growing problem in my home state capital. The amount of teen crimes has risen to new heights just since last year. Whats happening to us, Nashville?

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…
