Glenna Duram's Parrot Gave Her Away for Murder

Jessica Hicks The Arizona Killer Mom Who Never Killed a Soul

I know we have certain laws to make sure dangerous people might not get back on the street. Some of them are useful, I guess, but Im not partial to these ‘tricks” and bullshitery that end up putting people away forever for things they did not do. It is a sign of stupidity and a weak government. 

Case in point: Ms. Jessica Hicks, an Arizona mother of three.
Granted Ms. Hicks was not living the most righteous of lives. She had lived an off again, on again transient existence with her car-jacking, weapons charges carrying, trouble-maker of a boyfriend, Craig Uran. On March 18, 2014, the pair decided to carjack a woman. They cornered a woman in a parking garage and as Uran brandished the gun, Hicks wrestled her keys away. They took her truck and went to a motel. When leaving the room, they were spotted by a police officer. Uran driving and Hicks in the passenger seat, the pair took off like a modern day Bonnie and Clyde, complete with Uran pulling a gun and brandishing it at the cop before taking off in the truck. 


Police called out a mini-tank and rammed the truck several times. Eventually, Officer David Norman shot Uran after the crazy car chase through Phoenix. He’d crashed the stolen vehicle and was still trying to drive around deployed airbags when the police shot him. The bullet went through the window and into his head. Hicks was sitting next to him in the passenger side. They pulled her out through the window and onto the pavement. Thats when they found out the gun Uran had was a toy pellet gun.

Here’s where shit gets weird. Jessica Hicks has been sitting in jail for over two years for the murder of her boyfriend, Craig Uran. According to Arizona state murder law, if you are present during a felony when a homicide happens, you are charged.


How in the hell is this ethical? I understand, we need a few laws to keep the crazies away but this? Really? How is this ok to keep a drug addicted, abused, homeless mom of 3 in prison for 2 years just to blame someone else for a murder a cop committed?

For further research, this article has a to of great info.

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…
