Karen Read: Frame Up or Killer Girlfriend?

 


Back for more news about the women on death row? Lets discuss Karen,

John O’Keefe, a Boston Police Department officer, lived in Canton since 2014 and was raising his niece and nephew. He had been dating Karen Read, an equity analyst and adjunct professor, for two years.

On a snowy night in January 2022, after spending time at local bars, the couple went to Brian Albert's house, a fellow BPD officer and O’Keefe’s neighbor. Later, Read woke up alone at O’Keefe's house and couldn't find him. Panicked, she along with friends started searching for O’Keefe and found his body covered in snow outside Albert’s home. Despite attempts to revive him, he was pronounced dead, showing signs of a violent altercation.

 Read was soon charged with manslaughter, suspected of hitting O’Keefe with her Lexus. The case escalated to second-degree murder charges. However, an alternative theory emerged, suggesting that O’Keefe might have been beaten up at Albert's house and that Read was being framed.

 Controversy and conspiracy theories surrounding the case divided the Canton community, inciting heated debates and social strife. Some residents believed Read was innocent, while others supported the prosecution’s narrative. The case gained further attention when blogger Aidan Kearney published articles proposing theories of corruption and cover-ups involving law enforcement officers.

 Complications arose with various theories, contradicting evidence, and the involvement of numerous people, creating a complex scenario hard to unravel. The prosecution focused on evidence against Read, while her defense pointed to potential framing and misconduct by the police. The case, still pending trial, had significant media attention and public interest, with a Dateline show planned post-verdict.

 Throughout this tumult, the community in Canton remained deeply affected, grappling with the divisive and sensational nature of the case. Despite differing opinions on Read's guilt or innocence, there was a shared sentiment about O’Keefe's character as a respected and selfless individual.

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.

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

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
