Kelley Cannon - Nashville



There is a new drama unfolding in my backyard.
She even shares my name.

Kelley Cannon in Nashville is accused of strangling her husband, James Cannon, a well-known Nashville attorney.

Ive been following this story closely and have linked the reports below.

In a nutshell, James Cannon was found by a housekeeper strangled and stuffed in a closet of his home in an influential Nashville suburb in late June. After his death Kelley is quoted in local papers giving a litany of rotten things her husband has said and done to her.

“drinking had become so terrible, he couldn't even get up to go to work before 12 or 1.”
When asked if she had any idea of who would've had motive to murder Jim, she provided a one-sentence answer: “Jim had a mantra, and his mantra was, 'If you want a friend, get a dog.' ”

We were a good family, except for his drinking.... So he was taking my pills [for my back injury], he was smoking pot and he was drinking—sneaking around me, drinking.”

“I stopped looking into whether or not he was having affairs because it wouldn’t matter to me anymore. I just didn’t care. I just wanted to be a mother and wife—that’s it.”


His friends and family however, say that she was the bad guy in the marriage.

They were divorcing and living separately at the time. He had custody of the couples three children. There was also a restraining order on her. Kelley had been arrested before James death for ramming his vehicle. She was trying to gain custody.

Police af´Čüdavits from the last few years of the Cannon marriage say she pushed Jim around, threatened him with a knife and led police on a short, high-speed chase after snatching her toddler away from her husband. She says that just isnt true.

She says she went by the house they had shared on the night he died. Doors were open and furniture thrown about. She called for her husband and there was no answer. He went to the childrens rooms and found them asleep so she gathered them up and took them to her apartment but never did see her husband. The housekeeper found him and the police went to Kelleys house to question her.

She was arrested for taking the children and violating a court order and the children were given to James uncle where they remain.

She was arrested for his murder and is awaiting trial on charges of first degree murder.

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
