Sheila LaBarre New Hampshire

From http://www.authorkevinflynn.com/kf/LaBarre_case.html:

Sheila LaBarre used her sharp mind and raw sexuality to her advantage her whole life.  She preyed on "lost souls," befriending them, taking some of them as lovers.  She's also suspected of killing them in the most brutal of ways.  Is she evil, or insane?

On Sunday, April 2nd, 2006, a Revere, MA police dispatcher followed up on a tip about a woman wanted out of New Hampshire. The woman gave a false name and was arrested with $80,000 in cash and checks.  Cops identified her because her picture was on the front page of the newspaper.  The headline read: "JUST PLAIN CRAZY."

A week earlier, New Hampshire investigators had discovered bones and other remains among a burned mattress on her farm.  There was also a pet rabbit covered in blood. The remains of 24-year old Kenneth Countie were so badly burned that identification...let alone finding evidence of homicide...was going to be a challenge.

Countie had an undiagnosed form of autism and the mental capacity of a 12 year old. After a blind date, he moved to her Epping, NH farmhouse.  When the two were spotted in Wal-mart,she was pushing his bruised and battered body in a wheel chair and was piling diesel fuel containers on his lap.  When police visited the farm to check on Countie’s welfare, they discovered a meaty human bone sticking out of a smoldering burn pit.

Neighbors in the small town of Epping shared rumors about the 48-year-old woman, who moved to NH in 1986 after answering a personal ad from elderly chiropractor Bill LaBarre.  She was known for being flirtatious and tempestuous, but neighbors also knew she could be violent.  When Dr. LaBarre died suddenly in 2000, relatives wondered aloud if Sheila has poisoned him for the property.  In the years after Dr. LaBarre died, several young men had lived on the farm and most were seen beaten or bloody.

LaBarre slipped away from the cops tailing her, and hitched a ride from Stephen Martello.  The two had wild sex in a hotel room outside of Boston.  LaBarre told him she was an angel who had come back to life to rid the world of pedophiles.


She had grown up as Sheila Bailey in Fort Payne, AL, the youngest of six children.  Her first marriage lasted eight weeks, when her 19-year old husband discovered Sheila had been locking his toddler in a closet.  She moved to Chattanooga with her second husband, but dreamed of being swept away by a rich suitor.


The Countie murder case took an unusual turn as authorities discovered new evidence on LaBarre's farm.  Hundreds of cops spent 17 days searching the 115 acre property and beyond.  They found evidence of older burn pits and blood splatter so old it had layers of dust in it.  They also found clothes belonging to Michael Deloge, another man who had been living at the farm and vanished into thin air.

In February 2008, Sheila LaBarre changed her plea to not guilty by reason of insanity.  She confessed to the killings of Countie and Deloge, but claimed she was crazy when she did it.

As the murder trial of Sheila LaBarre approached in May 2008, major questions about this saga remained.  How did Kenneth Countie and Michael Deloge die? Did she poison Dr. LaBarre in an effort to obtain his million-dollar farm?  Was she legally insane at the time of the killings?

And the most puzzling question of all: who really is Sheila LaBarre?  How could she commit such a crime of brutal execution and of wicked intention?

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

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

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
