Ezra McCandless Wisconsin Killer

Ezra McCandless Stabs Bf 16 Times Pleads Not Guilt

Every few months or so I run up on a case that gets a lot of local attention. I've noticed that when a case becomes infamous in a particular area as opposed to nationwide, the community can get really nasty. They want to point fingers, assign blame, and make wild allegations against everyone from suspects, to family members to cops. I suppose people don't act like that on more widely recognized cases because they are afraid someone outside their little bubble will witness their behavior. When I write about a case like that the locals come out of the woodwork and I start to get emails, DMs and comments from a variety of people who claim to know the family, area, in-laws, Sunday school teacher etc. Recently this has happened with the Brina Nie case in Kentucky. More than 10 people contacted me from that area to give me their 411. Its interesting to get these first-hand neighbor accounts that often have insight you cant get elsewhere.

Ezra McCandless Wisconsin Female Killer Pleads Not Guilty But Mentally Capable 


Most recently, this phenomenon has occurred concerning Ezra McCandless and her alleged murderous activity in Wisconsin. As soon as I wrote about her stabbing her boyfriend 16 times and killing him, and the weird carvings on her arm, I immediately began to get correspondence from neighbors, acquaintances, friends and family. They have a bit more to say than what is being reported in the papers.

It is alleged that back in March, Ezra stabbed her boyfriend, Alexander Woodworth, to death in his truck on an old farm road. Afterward, she walked to a neighboring farmhouse, bloody, shoeless, and hysterical. The police came and tried to talk to her but she wasn't making sense, so they took her to the hospital. Hospital staff was able to discern her identity but not the origin of her unusual wounds and markings. The word BOY was carved into her arm. She had puncture wounds in her groin and inner thigh. Her hands were scratched and bloody.

Ezra McCandless Gender Dysphoria

Before we get into what the local community is speculating, let me just state that we should all remember that people can say anything, it doesn't make it true. Also, I do not live anywhere near close enough or make anywhere near enough money to investigate these statements first hand. That being said, take these statements for what you will.

Three of the 7 or so people who contacted me on this case claimed to know Ezra and agreed to let me print their statements. Ive grouped all of what they told me into one concise report below. Investigate and share your opinion.

More than one person reported Ezra has gender identity issues. While she dated men, she also identified as a man. Her real name isn't even Ezra. She changed it. Ezra claims sexual abuse as a child and that she is transgender. Even so, one mom whose son dated her told me that upon breaking up with Ezra, her son went out of state to visit relatives. He awoke after the long drive to find Ezra parked in the relatives drive way asleep after having followed him the whole 150 mile trip. Others say they only saw her dressed and acting very feminine and the idea she is trans is absurd. I had trouble with this because I caught on as soon as I saw her mug shot and heard BOY was carved into her arm. Neighbors say she is extremely artistic and has unusually superb talent in painting. Friends of Ezra and her victim Alex say he was extremely intelligent and bordered on genius.

Another local mom, who had TWO sons date Ezra, reported that she tried to pit the brothers against each other. Claiming to each that the other was abusive. She said Ezra contradicts herself a lot. One moment she would claim her mother was abusive and domineering and the next she would be the best mother ever to birth a child. This local mother says she talked with Ezra plenty during the time she dated her boys and she would change her personality (and identifying gender) to suit whoever she was trying to impress.

"I think she is a sociopath" 

According to general local consensus, Ezra's mom is an area dentist's wife and doesn't like to
associate with her. Her adoptive dad is the local bar stud. Her grandparents (parents of her adoptive dad) spent a lot of time with her early on, however that doesn't seem to have helped shape her much. Some say her mom tried to get her help at one point but she refused and it was then her mom gave up. She never seemed to be happy no matter what her circumstance. One family friend reported a 4 day camping trip with Ezra where she left the room she shared with her boyfriend at 1 a.m. to attempt to wake his sleeping brother in the next room.

As far as motives go, nobody has any idea. Those who claimed to be close to her say it could be that when her grandfather began to die, it set her off. He was a local cop who had been in trouble for sexual misconduct and harassment. This be the molestation link she talked about as a child. Her died not long after she murdered Alex. Others say they believe she just snapped after longing to do something like this all her life.

She was found competent to stand trial last month and plead not guilty.




Thank you, thank you, thank you, to all the readers who contribute to stories like this. Every single one of them expressed a deep sympathy for Alex's family and a sincere hope that justice is done. Thank you to my girl M.M., CCB, PD, and J. I appreciate your help and encouragement.

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…
