Fallon Tallent - Tennessee

I was pregnant with my last child in the summer of 03 when I heard about Fallon Tallent. I was working online for a records retrieval company when I heard the live news report of the police chasing her at high speeds down I-40. I stopped working and stared at the screen with interest. It seemed it was a young girl, barely a woman, racing down the Interstate not 60 miles from my house.

Reports say Fallon Tallent was on the tail end of a seven day crack binge that day. She was racing through Mt. Juliet and caught the attention of the police. Her speeds reached over 100 mph and they attempted to stop her using sting strips – the spiked strips police unroll across the road to puncture tires of absconding cars.

Fallon had been caught in this manner before and when she saw the strips go down she swerved, killing two policemen that day, Sergeant Jerry Mundy and Deputy John Musice.

Fallon is big news in the convict writing world. Her romantic entanglements with Tennessee death row diva, Christa Pike, often make headlines and her artwork and poetry turn up for sale online occasionally.

I have thought many times about Fallon. How could a girl so young end up careening down the interstate at top speed? Where did she come from? Where was she going?


She will have to serve 102 years before being eligible for parole.

  1. As Fallon's cousin I know the answers to the questions you ask. She isn't what she was portrayed to be by the media at all. I love her unconditionally. I could tell stories about what she endured at the hands of her own mother that would make a Hells Angels member cringe.

    1. Amen, blue....... I DON'T CARE what someone went through. There is NO EXCUSE, NO EXCUSE for doing the kind of crap this girl did. I went through hell growing up, along with three other siblings. We ALL learned the lesson those experiences were supposed to teach us. IT HURTS so don't do anything to cause anyone else that same hurt. So SIMPLE!!! She deserves to be where she is....

    2. Every thing that happen that day could have been avoided if the police had of just waited and let her stopped wherever she was going.I always thought that...

  2. I got to know Fallon a few years ago. I was her cellmate for a very short time. She was kind to me during my time there, and I appreciated that kindness. I believe we are all god's children, and we aren't supposed to judge other human beings, that's up to what ever Deity we believe in. Good luck Fallon, I think kindly of her from time to time, and send out a prayer or two when I do. I hope she is well.

  3. If pictures and photos can tell a story, personally, I see nothing in her eyes that even slightly represents someone with empathy or concern for the deaths of those officers, hopefully her indifference to all those who have suffered at her hands serves her well when she meets her maker.

    1. If you knew anything about prison is that you have to look and be tough to survive my mother knew she killed people and she felt bad but she also knew to survive for how long she has to be in prison that she can't show remorse or that she's weak you don't survive in any situation being incarcerated by crying in your mugshot you become a target

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
