Jessica Lynn Morris Stabbed her Dealer to Death

Jessica and her fiance Raymond Donald Blanchong II decided they wanted to murder together. Like Bonnie and Clyde or maybe Mickey and Mallory, the couple didn't really have a blood lust, but more like a deadly dedication to their addiction. They were both fully prepared to go through whatever hell presented itself together to get their drugs. Whatever that hell was was irrelevant. Just as long as they got their drugs.

With this mindest and little else, Jessica and Ray set out to meet up with their drug dealer on December 2nd, 2018 in Riga Township, Ohio. They had no money but intended to score in whatever way necessary.

Upon meeting, the defendants brutally assaulted James Wappner, according to court testimony. He still was alive after the assault but was locked in the defendants’ car. Security camera footage captured the victim entering the defendant's pickup, shortly before the vehicle began to shake violently and abruptly leave the parking lot with him still inside.

Wappner’s body was found two days later off Lipp Hwy., about a half- mile from Yankee Rd., in Riga Township. The body was lying face down in a field about 50 feet from the roadway. A passerby noticed something odd off Lipp and called authorities.

He was found with a neck wound across the throat that appeared to be from a sharp object. Reports said he had been stabbed more than 20 times.

“My brother, regardless of the lifestyle he lived, he accepted that lifestyle and what comes along with it,” said Corvez Braswell who spoke during sentencing. “That’s my only regret.”

Morris and Blanchong were arrested Dec. 21 in Aurora, Colo. Evidence reportedly was collected in Colorado that linked the couple to the crime. Although both people were involved, Morris claimed Blanchong threatened her to participate in the stabbing.

Jessica Lynn Morris, 30, was found guilty by a Monroe County jury of first-degree murder, armed robbery and unlawful imprisonment in connection with the death of James Martin Wappner, 45, of Toledo.

The Maumee resident was sentenced to life in prison without parole, a penalty determined by state statute. Blanchong also was found guilty of first- degree murder Oct. 16. He’s scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 12, when he’s expected to be given life in prison without parole. He is being represented by defense attorney Rebecca Hicks of Monroe.

Morris was remanded to the Michigan Department of Corrections.

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
