Lisa Gonzales Chopped up her Roommate in San Francisco

Image
Female Killer Chops up Roommate It’s a busy street, once plagued by gangs and criminal activity. Residents of the 200 block of 14th Street are used to much of the worst of city life. But they’re not used to this.

One resident, who did not want to have his name disclosed, said he hadn’t expected a murder to occur right next to his home.

“It’s rough out here, but stuff like what happened — it doesn’t happen too often,” he said.

What happened is one of the city’s grisliest homicides in some time. Lisa R. Gonzales, 47, has been charged with the dismemberment murder of her 61-year-old roommate, Margaret Rose Mamer.

Gonzales, who is said to be under observation at the San Francisco jail, did not appear in court on Wednesday afternoon. Judge Victor M. Hwang has ordered her to appear at her arraignment, which has been postponed until Friday morning.

District Attorney George Gascón told reporters he will ask for Gonzales to be held without bail.

How the #MeToo Movement Hates Prison Women

There are many women on death row who are smart, believe it or not.  They enjoy timely, relevant, topical conversation just like any other gal. One of the things I keep hearing from many of them is that the #MeToo Movement is a bunch of hooey. Not everyone, inmates such as Eileen Huber and others who have experienced rape, tend to have a softer feeling for the social movement, but many believe it has worked to stifle a certain element of society.

My friend, Barb, and I were having coffee at The Celtic Cup discussing this very fact.
"You can flirt your ass off and guys are afraid to ask you to dance. This #MeToo bulllshit has taken the romance out of dating and made it hard as hell to get the casual hookup." The girls in prison agree. There are women who count on their looks and personality to propel them through life. And those who count on their physical assets to gain benefit occasionally. Men are not able to respond to the flirty girl like they used to. "Its like t…

True Crime Tourism

It is one billion degrees today in Tennessee. My air conditioner is broken.  I live way in the Boonies and mosquitoes are worse this year than Ive ever seen them. I cant sit outside, even in the daytime without being feasted upon like Suki Stackhouse. I moved all my gear into a tiny she-shed I have in the back. It stays cool but that's about all I can say for its benefits at present.

I found myself checking out various destinations where I should be, instead of in this building in my sweltering backyard hiding from all that thick Tennessee air you can wear that's been lingering since 6 a.m. I found some pretty cool places for true crime weirdos like us.

The Alcatraz East Museum in Pidgeon Forge, TN is a replica of the famed prison but tons of true crime drama inside. There are five displays with everything from serial killers to CSI to look over. Lots of interactive exhibits. Check out OJ Simpson's Bronco and Ted Bundy's VW while your there.
