Whitney Gray Nashville Double Murderess Can Get Parole

Whitney Gray had a bad heroin habit. I told you about it back in June of 2016. She and her boyfriend, Brandon Griswold, had amassed a $650 - $700 tab with their drug dealers/roommates at Howe Garden Apartments at 1921 Greenwood Ave. on Nashville's east side, Preston Claybrooks and Alexandria Grubbs. When they realized they had no way to pay it they decided to kill them.

Around 10 a.m. the next morning, they crept into the couples room as they slept. Whitney was armed with a hammer, Brandon had a music stand. They beat the couple until their skulls crashed in and then Brandon finished the job by slitting both of their throats. The murderous, heroin-spiked couple shoved the dead roommates in a closet, piled towels and a foam mattress on top of them, and promptly forgot about them.

Whitney went to work a few hours later. She and Brandon decided they needed to vacate the premises when the bodies began to smell. They were the leaseholders on the apartment so when Preston Claybrook's mother came to find him but only found an apartment with the stench of death, she called the cops. It didn't take long to find Whitney and Brandon. They had moved under a bridge with a homeless man.

They first plead not guilty but caved rather quickly as the heroin wore off. The state sought a LWOP sentence. The couple had separate trials in 2017 and both took a plea to get a chance at parole after 51 years.

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
