Catherine Goins Murdered for a New Born

Left, Catherine. Right, Natalie
I had six kids. I was a rural mom with limited funds in my early days and even so, I have trouble relating to these stories of moms meeting up with complete strangers to get baby clothes or swings or cribs. They end up murdered by crazy women who can't have children. Or crazy women who want someone elses kid. This weird phenomenon is even more prevelent today, but still you hear about women doing this. Don't do this pregnant readers. Do not meet total strangers in the hopes of a good deal. Just go to Good Will or Dollar General. Try yard sales. If you must try your luck, take someone with you. Don't make it easy to become a victim.

Catherine Goins was living a lie. She had told people she was pregnant but wasn't. It was getting close to time to fess up or come up with a newborn. Something happens to the minds of these women who pull this stunt. The women who claim to be pregnant but are not just to keep a man or to hold together some fantasy life are suffering from some sort of psychosis. All to often it progresses to murder. Catherine had even been wearing a prosthetic baby belly.

When she got desperate she decided to run an ad in the paper offering to give away extra baby cothes.
Thirty-year-old Natalie Roberts answered the ad. Catherine had a spare key to a friends house with a basement. When Natalie arrived, she had her 3-year-old and her newborn with her. Catherine lured her into the basement where she shot her in the back of the head. Catherine called the homeowner and told him she'd shot an intruder. Claiming she was afraid to call the police, she jumped in Natalie's vehicle and took off with her two children.  Her friend talked her into coming back.

Police arrived and Catherine told them she shot an intruder with she was arrested five days later. Eventually, she was sentenced to LWOP.

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…
