Cold Case: Brenda Banaski Missing Teen

Judy Neelley Gets a Parole Hearing


I cannot understand why people are so up in arms about Judith A Neelley getting a parole hearing. She will never, ever be paroled. I spoke to Judy through letters and phone calls from 2000 until roughly 2007 when she dropped off the map. She told me of the horrors of abuse she suffered at the hands of her husband Alvin and claimed that he forced her into the acts she is charged with. Some witnesses to her crimes claimed she seemed to enjoy it. A few years back I contacted the police who are still alive that were involved to ask a few questions. Those here in Tennessee were mostly only privy to the bad check writing and petty crimes.. Judy started out life right around the corner from me in Murfreesboro, TN. That is the fact that started our friendship. She lived on Factory Road in Kittrell, a small suburb outside Murfreesboro. I have been up and down that road many times wondering how such a mess could spawn from that peaceful country road. One of the children she had with Alvin contacted me some years back and wanted to know an update on her. I haven't heard from him since.

A parole hearing for a woman who helped brutally rape, torture, and murder two girls in 1982 is scheduled fon Tuesday, but the Alabama governor, along with families of the victims and supporters who vividly remember the crimes, are pushing for her to stay behind bars indefinitely.
Al.com reports that Judith Ann Neelley, 18 at the time, along with her then-husband, Alvin Howard Neelley, Jr.,  then 29, held the victims agains their will for numerous days and took turns raping and molesting them, before killing them. 
On September 25, 1982, the couple kidnapped their first victim, 13-year-old Lisa Ann Millican, of Cedartown, from a mall in Rome, Georgia. The pair of convicts took the little girl to a hotel in Scottsboro, Alabama, where they both raped her repeatedly. According to court documents, the couple had two children of their own, who were present at the time their parents tortured the young girl.
Several weeks later, Judith Neelley attempted to kill Lisa Ann by injecting Drano into her neck with a syringe, followed by Liquid Plumber in the other side of her neck. When Lisa Ann didn’t die, Judith shot her in the back with a gun, then tossed the little girl’s lifeless body off of a cliff at the Little River Canyon in Fort Payne, Alabama.

On October 4, 1982, the convicts spotted a young couple, John Hancock, then 26, and Janice Chapman, 23, in Rome. They invited the victims to a party but after the couple agreed and followed them, the felonious couple lured the unsuspecting victims into the woods, where they shot John and left him for dead, then abducted Janice. The Neelleys brought Janice back their hotel room where they raped and tortured her repeatedly before murdering her. John survived the incident and is one of the many people currently protesting Judiths’s parole hearing.

Police caught up with the couple in October 1982 in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, after they were busted for writing bad checks. While in custody, investigators pieced evidence together that linked the couple to the murders.


Alvin eventually took a plea deal and was given life in prison for the murder of Janice Chapman. He was never convicted for the murder, rape, and torture of Lisa Millican.

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…
