A Reader Has a Snit and I Apologize

I have been meaning to do this for some time. Sadly, what most people don't realize is I have a full time job, family and a life. This blog and the letters to women on death row are a labor of love that I do not always have time for if I want to eat and pay my electric bill.

That being said, quite a while back someone put a comment on a Judy Neelley post about my mom and my experiences. She made a comment that was generally supportive but at the same time made assumptions about my mom. The post she commented on had a story of my mom losing her shit one night after my abusive step-father had pushed her over her limit.

I share these stories with you strangers because I know there are some of you who, like me, have a genuine interest in why people do the horrendous shit they can do to each other. I am fully aware that people will comment on my story, life and perspective. It doesnt bother me. They have their say, I have mine and its over.

This lady made a comment about my mom and about Judy and I believe Janeen Snyder in California. At any rate, she made some assumptions about my mom and her situation that were pretty generalized and I bit her head off. I didn't really mean too. I wasn't mad at her or upset at her opinion or even that she commented. She just made the wrong assumption and I shot off a quick retort and forgot about it. Some months later, my assistant informs me that there was something like 20 of that same woman's comments on several posts that had nothing to do with the original. All over the place, this lady repeatedly put this same comment. I guess she didnt know that comments have to be approved by my assistant. (This is because Jodie Arias and Darlie Routier in particular, have some nutbag followers who threaten me, my family, readers, etc.)

By the time we noticed the comments they were quite old but I went ahead and approved one of the blue million she submitted. I felt a little flattered this girl spent 20 minuets at least trying to make her opinion known on this little blog. Nice :)

At any rate, Id like to apologize to that little lady reader, whoever you are. I wasnt rying to ignore you, I didnt get mad at you. I just got busy. Carry on :)

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…
