Soprano's Actress, Amanda Hayes Fed Her Hubbys Ex to the Alligators


She was already convicted in the murder of her husband's ex-girlfriend when authorities also convicted Amanda Hayes, of Fort Bend County, North Carolina, of feeding the woman's body to alligators after trying to dissolve it in acid.

Amanda Hayes is an actress who has appeared on The Sopranos HBO series as well as the Nicole Kidman movie The Stepford Wives.

 Authorities found the torso and leg of Laura Ackerson in the Oyster Creek in Richmond on July 24, 2011. Dive teams found more of Ackerson's remains later. Ms. Ackerson was murdered by Grant and Amanda Hayes in the couple's Raleigh, North Carolina apartment in 2011, according to the DA's office.

The last anyone had heard, she was headed to Grant and Amanda's house to pick up the two small boys that she shared with Grant and discuss child support. The couple murdered Ackerson, dismembered her body with a power saw, and packed it into coolers. They drove to Richmond, to the home of Amanda Hayes' sister.

"Once in Richmond, the couple first attempted to use muriatic acid to destroy Ackerson's body," the press release states. "When that didn't work, they took a boat onto Oyster Creek and dumped Laura's body parts into the water with hopes that alligators would eat her remains."

Amanda Hayes had already been convicted of second-degree murder in N.C. and sentenced to 13-16 years in prison. Grant Hayes was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Amanda Hayes testified in the trial that she did not kill Ackerson. She claimed that her husband threatened to cut her throat if she did not help him dispose of the body.

A jury convicted her of tampering with evidence to impair its availability in an investigation, a second-degree felony. Judge Maggie Jaramillo sentenced her to 20 years in prison, consecutive to the North Carolina sentence.

"The jury verdict was swift and the Court's sentence was appropriately harsh," said lead prosecutor Amanda Bolin. "Laura Ackerson's family can be assured that Amanda Hayes will be punished for all of her barbaric behavior – whether it was in North Carolina or the great state of Texas."
Thank you to our patron, Neva Kelly for her continued support and great ideas.

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
