Heather Birden Connecticut

Holly Aeschlimann
Holly Aeschlimann, 19 was murdered in Connecticut in April of 2015. This case is amazingly close to that of Rachel Wade. Holly and her killer, Heather Birden, 20, had a longstanding dislike for each other. Heather had stabbed another girl, a juvenile, once before in 2014. She was held in Niantic Correctional Facility for next three months before the murder as a result of a violation of her probation, and was then released to an in-patient substance abuse rehabilitation facility.

Reports state that Birden asked her boyfriend for his knife and then left his house to find Holly stating "I have to end this tonight." Witnesses say Heather arrived and the two began to fight, ending in Holly being stabbed in the head and neck at a crosswalk outside an apartment complex in Torrington, CT.  Her friends rushed her to the hospital where she died. 

Heather was hiding under a vehicle a short distance away and feigned confusion when police found her. She spent the next several hours under investigation alternately crying and showing confusion before eventually admitting to stabbing Holly.

Witnesses and friends of the two girls say they had never gotten along and bickered and fought all through high school. News reports stated this particular fight was over a boy Holly was dating and Heather was friends with. 

A witness captured the fight on cell phone video. Police say it was Holly who threw the first punch and can be seen clearly pummeling Heather who is under her at one point. From her position under Holly, she swings the knife and slices Holly's throat. Holly stand up and holds her throat. Blood is seen escaping through her fingers and she screams for someone to take her to the hospital. 

She was officially charged with murder in on May 1, 2015 and is in jail on a $1.2 million bond.

  1. As a Floridian and former friend of Rachel Wade, the only correlation I see between this case and Rachel's is what the fight was over and ultimately how it ended, although it's obvious Heather appears out for blood and Rachel was standing her ground.

  2. Heather was afraid of holly and said so when she took the knife. It was the third time holly beat her up and they filmed it to humiliate heather

  3. Witnesses lied to police and Joe surgeon was beat up twice. The first time to shut him up because he tricked heather into being there

    No one is asking for justice anymore

  5. Heather was not out for blood, I know her more than anyone and know she wouldn't purposely go out to hurt someone in that manner. And she didn't get a knife from her Boyfriend , why because I'm her Boyfriend both now and At the time. And I wasn't in the area. I hope everything goes well, I pray for my love every day, I hope God listens to my prayers.

    1. Thanks for your opinions and for reading the blog. The statements and facts I used for this article came straight from the police report. The name your posting under is not the names listed as her boyfriend and they are the ones who made the comments about the knife.

    2. It looks like holly may not have known they were going to film it to post on the internet. Heathers friends worked with samantha webb to set this up. They should all gp tojail

  8. I was Heather's bunkee at York Correctional. She is a bright, beautiful person. Heather felt nothing but remorse as she explained what had happened that night. She told me she was pretty much bullied by Holly, but still feels remorse. She is still a kid at heart, crying for home. I do miss being with her, and wish her a happy life, finding peace while still wearing a uniform, and when she finally walks out of the gate. It won't be an easy transition, and I hope she's forgiven, by society, and herself.

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
