Spring break is fast approaching and Im trying to decide who I will visit. I had planned to visit Shonda Johnson but since her overbearing sister has forbid her to write to me because I had the (GASP!) audacity to mention that she had indeed been married to 3 men at the same time (um... wasnt that brought out in trial or did I break the news?) even though I don't see that as reason enough to assume she was guilty when she so obviously wasnt.
Anywho- Ill have to pick another. I havent heard from Judy or Annette lately. So I may go to Mississippi.

Ive been searching high and low for a website to give me a decent rate and I found this one: Hotel Reservations
I am REALLY impressed with the prices and options on this site. Ive been checking the distances to various prisons and the prices on this site compared to others. ROCK ON!

I have found deals on hotels, motels, resorts, vacation rentals and all kinds of stuff.This really opens my options up. Im thinking of perhaps finding a central location to several prisons and staying for a week or more. This place is making it easy because there are so many incredible deals. Im impressed.

  1. Why do you need Christi's approval to visit? IF you are on Shonda's visitors list and she wants you to visit then just go. You better make sure you are on that list or they will NOT let you in to visit. For the record Shonda is very firm in her statements that she was not married to three men at one time. I agree with you however, if she was it wouldn't make her guilty.

    Let me ask you this question about the book you want to write about women on death row. You said in a previous post that you are dead in the water. What do you want the goal or purpose of the book to be? Do you want to relate their stories, sorta like a collection of true crime or more of a position against the death penalty? What do you what to convey? That will be the first step. Another will be that of ethics since you are using living people. Many state corrections have their own IRB (Institutional Review Board) that reviews and approves or denies any media stuff. What is written even through letters have grave ethically implications for the woman. I'll explain if you want me too. Anyhow enjoy visiting whomever it is you choose to visit.

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
