You, Me, & Murder

If you have ever heard any of the interviews I have done, you know why I was made for this job. My whole life has been plagued by murder and mayhem. I have seen it from directions not many other people have. It has been said in many languages and cultures that we do not see the world as it is, but as we are. Having this unique history has certainly tinted the way I look at law, criminals, and justice. I am just one of many, however.

One of the reasons I got a criminal justice degree, worked in county probation, work with inmates, and write crime is because I am interested in the how and why, which is different in every case. It is also different from every point of view, which is why I am asking readers for their own personal true crime story.

The Woman Condemned is asking for YOUR personal stories. Have you been involved in a crime, as a victim, accomplice, perpetrator, or innocent bystander? Tell me about it. Send me an email at admin@thewomancondemned.com and if I use your story in a future blog post  you win a copy of my latest book Voices From Death Row, a true crime themed gift pack (which may have pens, notepads, mouse pads, and who knows what because it changes as I pick these little gems up here and there), and entrance into a raffle for tickets to 2019 Dark History and Convention in Illinois. Even if I don't use your story, you are still entered into the ticket drawing.

You can be anonymous if you'd like. Just share your story.

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…
