Isaac Zamora- Washington

In my last conversation with Isaac before they moved him to a prison I tried to get him to enter into the College Guild program, which is close to my heart as my long time readers know. This program would be perfect for him. He is literate and smart and finally coming out of the haze that has been his life for so long. College Guild would allow him an outlet for all the things going on in  his head. He is so limited as to the things he can do for entertainment. This move to prison is so counter productive. He was deemed to dangerous to be in a hospital. He is the only prisoner ever to be moved from a state hospital to a prison WITHOUT STATE CONSENT. Isaac is mentally ill. This is a proven fact. How is it ok to send a mentally ill person to prison?

Shawna Forde - Arizona

Shawna Forde had no chance at anything but the death penalty when she committed her crimes, the murders of father and daughter Raul and Brisenia Flores. Shawna and her cohorts hated immigrants and belonged to a group that vowed to protect America from illegal immigration.  She  founded, and was Executive Director of the Minutemen American Defense (M.A.D.), a splinter group of  Minutemen Civil Defense Corps .  Since 2007, she had been involved in vigilante activities and later joined the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps. However, she was asked to leave the organization in February 2007 after members described her as being "unstable." She thought of herself as some type of feminine political force and even ran unsuccessfully for a seat on the Everett, Washington City Council in 2007. She  had several run-ins with law enforcement throughout her life prior to her arrest for the double murder. Court records show that she served time in juvenile lock-ups for repeated con

Janeen Marie Snyder- Californias Answer to Karla Holmolka

Michael Thornton and Janeen Marie Snyder. I am considering adding Janeen Marie Snyder to my ever growing list of inmate correspondence. She seems so much like Karla Holmolka but then quite different at the same time. She lured these women to please this man but he was considerably older than she was. Strange, indeed. Judy Neelley was in the same situation. She lured young girls to Alvin or faced severe beating. Here is Janeen's current web page requesting a penpal . Michael Thornton and Janeen Marie Synder murdered two young girls, 14-year-old Jesse Kay Peters and 16-year-old Michelle Curran. Both girls were abducted, sexually assaulted, and killed. They targeted young girls as sexual targets, the objects of Michael's sexual fantasies, and Janeen Synder acted as the bait to get the girls to Michael Thornton. Not unlike the Gallegos or Judy and Alvin Neelley and of course Karla and Paul Bernardo. Once she got them to him, he made sure the girls never escaped, abused

Tanya Jaime Nelson California

Tanya Jaime Nelson, 46, of Roanoke Rapids, NC, was given death for the murder of two Asian women, fortune teller Ha Smith and her daughter Anita Vo. The case caused quite a stir when the heads and hands of the victims were found coated in white paint. The details are so bizarre the case was featured in season 4 of Wicked Attraction. (Watch it below) From OCWeekly: Ha Jade Smith, 52, and her daughter Anita Nhi Vo, a 23-year-old college student, were found dead in Mrs. Smith's Little Saigon home on April 22, 2005. They died of hideous multiple stab wounds to their faces and necks. Both also had cuts on their hands, suggesting that they had attempted to resist their attacks. What most baffled officers was why nearly a gallon of white paint had been poured over their heads and hands. "I haven't come across anybody else who has had a case in which the victim's heads and hands were covered in paint," police Det. Tim Vu said at the time. "I've

Brooke Marie Rottiers- California

Brooke Rottiers is over 200 lbs and stands nearly 6 feet tall. She was also a prostitute. A specialty niche of the trade would be my guess. She has been sentenced to death by lethal injection for murdering two day laborers. She and two accomplices, Omar Hutchinson and Franchune Epps,  lured the men to her room after an afternoon of drinking with the promise of sex. Once there they were tied up, strangled, tortured, and suffocated. According to the D.A. report, she shoved her gigantic bra and panties down their throats, covered their heads in plastic, beat them and wrapped their bodies in bed sheets. With the help of her partners in crime she put them in the trunk of her car and drove to a remote lake area and parked. Somewhere Brooke went wrong. The defense brought many witnesses stating what a kind and attentive mother she was and how she eventually became a prostitute after becoming addicted to drugs.  Many of her close friends and relatives do not believe she did this willin
