Lafonda Fay Foster Kentucky

Lexington, Kentucky bills itself as the horse capital of the world and as you'd imagine, with a self appointed moniker as such, it's a very green city full of fresh air and families. Youth football and cheerleading are the big deals in town and the Farmer's Market is still the best place to hear the scores on Saturday morning along with a healthy dose of whatever else is going on in town. It's normal. It's safe. It always has been, except for that hellacious night in  April of 1986 when LaFonda Faye Foster and Tina Hickey went on a killing spree the likes of which Lexington has never seen again.

I got a short, question filled letter from Lafonda which she signs "Faye...aka...Sug". Mostly she asks how I can help her, what information I have available and if I have anything I can send her about animal kingdoms and biology. It is the first letter I have received from her and many women I hear from often wait to discuss their case and feelings and some chose not to ever do so. She said she has a penpal account on writeaprisoner.com and asks me to check that its up and valid. I could not find her on the site. I did find Tina Powell's profile and she is looking for men, which I found really odd.

I hope Faye, or Sug, decides to tell me something because I wonder how she and Tina came to the decisions they did that day. Five people were killed by stabbing, shooting, running over with a car, and setting on fire. Faye was 23 and Tina  28 the night they set out on an epic drinking binge.

Like so many before her, Faye had a long, long history of abuse and criminal activity from childhood and beyond. She was a drug addict, a prostitute and an occasional lesbian. Authorities in Lexington knew her as severely emotionally disturbed and violent.

After getting extremely drunk and running out of money, five people died in an attempt to get more money and more booze and more cocaine. Has she found some sort of peace in jail? She was a consummate criminal at the time of the killings. Jail a common occurrence in her life. Was the death sentence and then LWOP just par for the course or has it affected her in some way? Is she repentant or pissed off?

Below is an episode of Deadly Women depicting this senseless massacre.

  1. Wow! Those were some really senseless and violent crimes that were committed. It's sad those lives were taken. No one deserves to be treated like that. I pray for their family and loved ones.

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
