Ive started writing to a man in prison, which is unusual for me.
He isnt on the row but serving life.
His story touched me so deeply I thought of him for several days before deciding to send him a copy of the girls newsletter.

His name is Randy Wood.
I saw his story on an A&E American Justice titled Murder at Homecoming.
He and a few buddies were drinking in a camper trailer when one of the girls from school showed up. She got drunk right alon with them and although she was an ex girlfriend of Randy's ended up sleeping with one of the other fellas.
After pasing out, the third fella goes in to see her and he also has sex with her.
She wakes up sometime later and his hysterical. Saying that she was raped by the third fella who was a shady type.
The two that had sex with her take her to a bridge and blow her head off and throw her over the bridge.
Randy was along for the ride, threatened and scared and in over his head.

When all three were arrested he refused a plea bargain to make sure that his story was taken for the truth that it was. He told how the evening unfolded and how the events took place.

This high school kid refused a plea bargain, took nothing in exchange for telling the truth and will now spend his life behind bars.

It breaks my heart. I shudder to think what anyone of us would do if confronted with a shotgun in our face. Especially at that young age.

He has been in a Texas prison ten years in November.

We've been writing for several months now. He's very sweet and appreciative of everything I do. Even the girls family doesnt blame him and thinks his sentence was to harsh. The mother has tesitifed in his behalf.
He has led an exemplary prison life while the other two have had escape attempts and other mishaps.

This guy just breaks my heart.

The Most Beautiful Girls to Ever Kill Their Own Mother

As human beings, we have trouble fathoming the idea of a young girl committing so atrocious a crime as murder. Much less, the murder of her own mother. The concept becomes even more inconceivable when it pertains to a beautiful young woman beautiful young woman with a loving family and the world at her fingertips. These girls aren't all women in prison now. Some have been released and disappeared into the mainstream. Scary, huh?  Nakisha Waddell     At age 14, Nakisha Waddell stabbed her mother, Vaughne Thomas, 43 times in their Virginia home. In court, she said she was tired of the years of fighting and just exploded. Her 15-year-old friend, Annie Belcher, helped her dig a grave in the backyard. The pair poured alcohol and nail polish remover on the dead woman and tried to ignite her to no avail.  They eventually mixed a crude concrete mixture and poured it on top of her and finished by covering her with sticks, leaves, and yard debris. She gives no reason or excuse o

Tina Brown, Heather Lee, & 16 YO Britnee Miller Killed Over Teen Jealousy

The first thing I thought of when I found this lady, Tina Brown, was that old Texas case where that mom went ballistic and tried to hire a hitman to kill her daughter's cheerleading rival. Wanda -something -or -other was her name. My sister lives close to her still. This story is even more brutal, if you can believe that. Tina's 16-year-old daughter, Britnee was on and off besties with another gal in their Pensacola, Florida trailer park, Audreanna Zimmerman. Like many teen friendships, it ran hot and cold depending on the current drama in the trailer park. In March of 2010, it was frigid and it was all over a boy. Audreanna Zimmerman Police reports say Britnee complained to her mom, Tina, and a neighbor, 27-year-old, Heather Lee, about the ongoing arguments with Audreanna, already a mom of two at 19-years-old. The trio decided to find her and hem her up so Britnee could fight her. Things got out of hand, They found Audreanna walking along a dirt road. Tina Brown u

Darlie Routier Texas

I was contacted by a penpal of Darlie Routier's who gave me some of the most recent advances in her case to share with you all. I began writing to Darlie in December of 2005 and she is one woman whom I will never understand how she got behind bars. Really. You know what else? With all the information ALREADY out there about this case, in addition to the newly discovered info, I think if you can't see this poor woman's innocence, you may just be an asshole. So many legal flubs, so much question and police innuendo that turned out to be nothing. So many fingers pointed and road blocks thrown up, I am surprised this case isn't used in other countries to point to the clusterfuck we call a justice system.  I believe Darlie could have been released ages ago if the state had done the necessary DNA testing. Sadly, Texas has tried to stop it in every unconstitutional way they could pull out of a bull's ass. BUT- there is hope on the horizon. This from Camp Darlie
