My Daughter Has Felony Drug Convictions Now What?

Dusti Byers is Really Just a Nice Girl

So, speaking of readers and their comments, I have one from a month or so ago from someone claiming to be in the know on murderess, Dusti Byers. Another person claiming to be her mom left a comment on the post I wrote about her here.  The email read:

I feel really badly that you chose to call Dusti Byers the "sadistic sister."  If you knew more of the story you would change your mind.  You seem like a person that would look at both sides of a situation.  
Dusti Byers pleaded guilty to the murder of her father and sister only because she could not get decent representation in her rural county.  Her sister was killed because the bullet meant for the father traveled through his head into the sister.  There was no intent to kill her sister.  Dusti experienced years of sexual abuse from her father.  He also provided her with drugs from an early age.  Glenn County childrens' services were called out many times but never helped her.
That's all.  Just thought you should know.

Daycare Owner Melissa Clark Murders Baby in a Fit of Rage

A Noble, Oklahoma woman was charged with first-degree murder Monday for her role in the death of a 4-month-old girl.

Noble police officers and OSBI special agents arrested Melissa Dawn Clark, 45, the owner and operator of an in-home day care center Friday.

According to an OSBI affidavit, Noble police responded to a call of an unresponsive child July 19 at 505 Rolling Meadows Drive.

According to the affidavit, at about 11:30 a.m., Clark said she went into the kitchen to make a cup of coffee when she dropp…

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 abo…
