Nazira Maria Cross - California

Nazira Cross
This is the stuff that ends up as a movie on the Lifetime channel. Nazira Maria Cross, 48, is accused of having poisoned to death her estranged husband, Michael Cross, 55, in 2008. The prosecution says she poisoned him at their home in California and then recruited neighbors to help load his stricken body into her vehicle and then drove his body to a secluded ranch the couple owned in Lovelock, Nevada and burying him.

Michael Cross was a successful car dealer with dealerships,Kietzke Auto Sales, in Lovelock and Reno, Nevada. The couple lived an opulent if a bit violent life together. They had split and reunited in 2008.

People started to look for Michael, police were called and neighbors told the tale of how they helped him into the car so Nazira could take him to the hospital and yet, no hospital records were found. They eventually found Nazira, who told all kinds of tales before settling on the one where he passes away and she panics and buries him. The body was found on the ranch.  Nazira is a native of Costa Rica and the prosecution contends she made use of the time the state was gathering autopsy reports to make haste from the United States. She had been wanted for six years and the case appeared on the Americas Most Wanted tv show.

In 2010 she was charged along with two grown children in an insurance scheme where she faked her own death. According to the FBI, it received information that Cross was living in Peru after a recent rebroadcast of information about the case went out. She had herself set up in a pretty nice little pad in Peru when she was arrested by Peruvian National Police early Thursday morning.

Can you imagine what this woman must be like? They say poisoning is one of the cruelest, most personal ways to commit murder. It takes a long time. It is painful, and if your poisoning a close family member, your going to be right there watching it all. Chilling.

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
