Daily True Crime Writer

This time of year... ugh. What can I say? Some people are filled with holiday cheer and I so wish I was one of them. I am not exactly Scrooge McDuck but I get uber sad and all emo this time of year. I miss my mom. I cant do things for my loved ones that I'd like too. My daughter is all the way across the country. Each year, I say Next year I will have the perfect Christmas for everyone I love. But I never do. You know the drill. At least some of you do. It is best for me to stay busy until the day after Christmas when I take down my tree with more holiday joy than most people did putting theirs up.

I have a full slate of work for various content mills (Textbroker, Verblio, etc.) just to fill up the day because I don't have anything for any of my private clients except an idea I'm working on for Sinfully Vin. I have an article Ive written called Small Town Horror Story about my experience with Skott Hale I need to shop around. It is part of a true crime memoire I have been working on for some time but can never get through. It throws me into a weird emotional place. I need to get through that and get it out there just to be done with it. I'm trying to get a new true crime video out to you by the new year too. Wednesday I am going to a criminal justice career fair. Maybe Ill get back into probation. Who knows? Show me the money, right?

Today I will write letters, though. I am writing to Morgan Smith, Alyssa Bustamante, and Samantha Allen. All convicted of killing someone in wildly differing circumstances, yet they are all in the same position on this Christmas 2018 and no matter how bad I feel, I am not where they are. Or where their victims are. Maybe something I say to them will make a change in their lives and inspire them to change someone or something in there that will make a difference. That is something I can do while still in the safety of my cozy home.

I'll get to work now but I will be thinking of you all. All of you people who, like me, have a hard time during this season. I'm here if you need an ear.

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…
