Good News From Darlie's Mom A letter from Darlie Routiers mom: Dear Friends and Supporters, The family met this week with Darlie's attorneys. They gave us hope as to future DNA testing through the federal courts and also encouragement about the CCA's recent ruling to allow Darlie limited testing of DNA on some evidence. It is a small step and it will be a long battle to get most of the testing we want, but I believe it will happen. Darlie's federal judge, Royal Ferguson, was also the Judge on the Michael Blair case. For those of you that are not familiar with this Dallas case, many of the experts and prosecutors on his case have been involved in Darlie's. Michael was on death row for supposedly murdering a child. He was found guilty by witnesses and police officers that lied and experts that were inept and just plain wrong. Michael case was overturned after 14 years through DNA testing. This gives me hope that Judge Ferguson will see the same situation in Darlie'
The Associated Press: Ohio jury convicts mom in microwaved-baby case Another death row contender. This woman says that she did not do this and a young boy has testified that he saw another boy with the baby in the kitchen. Stay tuned...
Some exciting news from Michelle Byrom and her lawyers yesterday. Lots of new people are being summoned to appear at her hearing. IMPORTANT people that may finally put an end to her nearly 10 year ordeal. Important people like the judge and sheriff because they are people who withheld information in the original trial. Plus information about two confessions from the other defendants stating Michelle's innocence and why they weren't entered into evidence. Michelle's medical evidence was never entered either. A medical expert is now on hand to explain the wide spectrum of meds that she had been prescribed as well as the effects and origins of Munchausen Syndrom from which she has suffered for years. This should be interesting. She also talked about her cousin Ann and her wish for me to converse with her. I have written to her and she is a reader of this blog. Michelle expressed deep pain over her brother. He wrote to her and gave her a few dollars- not nearly enou
Why Some Mothers Kill Their Children More than 200 women kill their children in the United States every year, according to a recent study by the American Anthropological Association. Homicide is the leading cause of death in children under four. View more »
The Sunday School Killers How did two Sunday school teachers become cold-blooded killers? View more » This is an article about Brenda Andrew and her case.
Do you ever do something just totally random and then get a nice little karmic surprise for your efforts? For instance: Early this month I was waiting out a rainy day on the sofa watching some telly. I usually work outside on my front porch and feel stifled if I cant get out. So I grudgingly sat down to eat a sandwich (swamich, as my lovely 5 year old daughter says) and flip through channels. I came across The Amityville Horror, the old 1970's version. It had been years since I'd seen that movie and I'd always loved it as a kid. As I ate my tomato swamich and watched the movie I suddenly remembered why Id loved it so. Staring at the screen I was reintroduced to my first whiff of puberty by boldly dark and curly Meeno Peluce, who plays the son of the doomed couple. Rushing back into my head were vague memories (somewhat clouded by paisley polyester and Peter Brady) of a racing heartbeat each time Id catch him in an episode of Silver Spoons or The Incredible Hulk. I was sure
Remember Michelle Anderson? She and her boyfriend killed her parents and other family members including two children in Washington last Christmas. She is now asking for the death penalty and encouraging her boyfriend to do the same. Her lawyers tried to investigate the possibility that she may be insane in order to deter the death penalty so she fired them and hired new ones!
This may be the new face on death row. Deborah Jean Hopson She and her boyfriend have been arrested for the murder of another 19 year old boy. Ah, a team killer. She did it for love. What did Martha Beck say? "In the history of the world how many crimes have been attributed to love?" It seems she and her boyfriend arranged a meeting by Internet with a gentleman. The fellow was promised money, sex and alcohol so he agreed to meeting at his home. That's when he was robbed of a PlayStation and some games, a class ring, maybe some cash. I cant remember. But no one seems clear yet on why he was drowned in a bucket of water after the robbery. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty on both defendants. We shall see.
Did you know that at least 1 of every 6 serial killers is a chick? I'm serious. Who are the serial killers we know of? BTK, Green River, Ted Bundy, Night Stalker, Gacy, Son of Sam... Shall I go on? Now, name some famous women serial killers. You know, the ones who the media have celebritized and made larger than life like those we mentioned above. Um...ok... lets see... there' Oh! Wait! I know! Aileen Wournous! and then there's ummm.... We don't know anymore, do we. Not real world-wide celebrity status cases. Why was Aileen chauffeured to celebrity status and not any of the other recent female serial killers? It is because Aileen was different. She killed like a man. She killed strangers and she killed for profit or gain. And she killed violently- leaving bodies in her wake easy for anyone to stumble upon. She did not kill like a woman, that's for sure. She didn't kill someone she know or even loved. It wasn't for love or in a jealous rage or after
STAYED - Antoinette Frank - Louisiana Death Row - Scheduled Execution : Pro Death Penalty Information - Scheduled Executions I used to write Antionette a lot. In 2005, however she stopped writing to me. I have written to her this week and hope to have an answer soon. Her brother Adam, in Angola, recently wrote to me.
I found Judy!!!! (Judith Ann Neelley) I'm so excited. I missed her a lot. She was my favorite because she was very open with anything I asked her. Last I heard from her she was in Louisiana and I got a phone call right after Christmas. I never heard from her again and I found out she was moved again to Alabama. So! I'm going to write her again. She is one that I seriously do believe. Her husband was such a sadistic fuck that I'm surprised that she lived through the ordeal. She grew up right here about 20 miles from my house. I have spoken to the police involved in her arrest and some of her old neighbors. She is no longer on death row but sits in prison for life.
Offender Details Donna Marie Roberts- talked her prison lover into killing her common law husband when he got out. He did. Now they are both on deathr row in Ohio. Nicole Diar is the other woman on the row in Ohio and I do write to her.
Today- the live in boyfriend of Melissa Elizabeth Lucio- the newest death row woman goes on trial for his choice to stand by idly as Melissa brutally tortured and beat her 2 year old daughter to death. Experts claimed she is a victim of domestic abuse and severe violence herself but little about that was brought up in court so i smell a lot of appeals coming. On February 17, 2007 Harlingen Police found Mariah Alvarez unresponsive at the family’s apartment off of Lee Street. Alvarez was later transported to the emergency room at Valley Baptist Medical Center in Harlingen, Texas where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Lucio was arrested on February 18, 2007 by the Harlingen Police Department for the capital murder of her daughter, Mariah Alvarez. Lucio was indicted on May 16, 2007 by a grand jury and arraigned on May 31, 2007. She has received a death sentence.
Um... hi. Remember me? I'm Kelly- the chick that writes those death row women?! Sorry Ive been gone so long. Since May I have been working on a book that I was contracted for and finally finished! It was probably the hardest thing I ever did in my life. I received the offer for the contract in May and since then I have been steadily plugging along with 25K words a month. I finally finished! I turned it all in last week! I am so proud of it I cry every time I think of it. I dedicated it to my late mother who was a huge inspiration and my husband and family and a very dear, sweet, long time friend Terry Wells. It is a nonfiction book on remodeling older homes which has been a life long passion of many of my family members. I have been around such projects all my life and truly enjoyed the process of writing the book. There is no firm name for the book yet but as soon as publication is complete (I'm hearing mid September latest)I will be sure to post a link! BUT Now that I'm f
