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

Heather Leavell-Keaton Fed her Tiny Step-children Antifreeze and Dumped Them in the Woods

Heather Leavell-Keaton is an Alabama woman, the first from Mobile County, who was sentenced to death in August of 2015, for the murder, torture and abuse of the corpses of her two step-children in 2010.  The children's father, John DeBlase, received the same sentence.

By her own admission we know she was hardily covetous of the two children, Natalie, 5 and Chase, 3. Natalie was a particular thorn in her side because of the way family members treated her. She was loved by her extended family and they showed it. Heather hated how Natalie was treated like a princess while she was ignored.

The couple spent months, perhaps years abusing and torturing the kids. Burning them with cigarettes, binding them with duct tape and shoving them in suitcases, closets and crawl spaces for 10 - 12 hours at a time. They also bound them to broom handles and forced them to stand in a corner of the room for hour upon hour.

Authorities believe Heather killed both children. She has experimented with antifreeze on a dog until it died. She started to put antifreeze n the kids food regularly but when it failed to work she took more drastic measures.

After spending more than 10 hours duct taped in a suitcase, Natalie was removed and strangled to death. Her tiny body was dumped partially clothed in a remote area. Several months later they realized that Chase was becoming a serious liability. He would cry and ask about his sisters whereabouts. It was when he began to do it in public that they killed him too. Police have said he was tied to a broomstick for several hours before being strangled and dumped deep in the woods wearing only a diaper.

Heather admitted to an inmate that she had done all of the killing but her boyfriend was all for it. I take this information with a grain of salt. We all know what can happen when inmate testimony is part of the prosecution. It's unreliable, it's often fabricated either by the police or the inmate, and it is always questionable.

They both received a death sentence in August of 2015 for the 2010 murders. The children's mother, Corrine Heathcock DeBlase survives them. Heather admitted to the murders. Her defense was only to achieve a life sentence, she offered no excuses for her murderous acts. Her attorney's have said she has devoted her life to her Lord and spends her time alone, studying religion. John is still denying his guilt.

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…
