Linda Buckner Killed the Cat Lady

If this ain't a case for ID Channel's Nightmare Next Door or Fear Thy Neighbor, I don't know what is. There is also a connection to my home state of Tennessee which is what caught my eye in the first place.

Walter Renz    Linda Buckner
Walter Renz and Linda Buckner lived in Mansfield, Ohio in a pleasant, quiet neighborhood. Next door was Patsy Hudson. Patsy was the stereotypical cat lady. She was quiet. She kept to herself without a lot of company. Those who knew her called her kind hearted and easy going. She cared for several stray cats that roamed the neighborhood as well as any other animal that found its mangy way to her doorstep.

 Walter Renz and Linda Buckner, her neighbors, did not find this quite so charming a fact as everyone else might. They would confront patsy on a regular basis with complaints about the strays and went so far as to kill one of them by poison and seriously injure another.

All this came to a head on the 4th of July 2015. Patsy filed a police report that day stating her neighbors had killed and viciously attacked her cats, constituting animal abuse. The three neighbors got into a shouting match in the yard later that day. Afterward, Patsy was never seen again. While their Mansfield, Ohio neighborhood was quiet, it wasn't without witness. Neighbors reported the argument to police but they also reported that Walter Renz and Linda Buckner moved out that night. By the time Patsy was reported missing in December and an investigation was underway, they were long gone.

Gone, as it turns out, to Tennessee, the state I live in. The pair was a rolling mess anyway. Linda has a plethora of alias's and Walter is a grade-A asshole from way back according to interviews with people who know him. The pair slithered into Tennessee in a stolen car to a a roadside campground southwest of Nashville in Lewis County, where they were apprehended by  a U.S. Marshals Task Force in February of 2016.

Patsy's bones have been found scattered throughout the county where she lived. Walter was in possession of her credit card, which had remained active since her death, when he was arrested. Linda was already wanted for bail jumping in Kentucky.

It will be interesting to see how this case progresses.

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…
