  • Comment Policy

    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc.
    3 - Please remember to not use all CAPS or capitalize the beginning letter of every single word or every other word, or use IM/text abbreviations (except like LOL). Please have respect for other readers and type words out. Not everyone is into that and it is inappropriate here. [examples: "cuzn" "tha" "dat" and so many more] Learn proper English! You should have learned it in school.
    4 - Your comments must be all in English, using proper English, too. No huge run-on sentences (use punctuation). Pretend you learned something in English class.
    5 - I will also not allow Anonymous comments. This includes using anonymous, obviously fake email addresses (you@you.com, me@me.com, anonymous@yahoo.com, or fictional characters, etc.)
    6 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS.
    7 - You must be 18 years of age or older to comment.
    If you have a question or problem with this, please feel free to email me (there is a link to my email above).


Carole Garton & her unborn child murder 5/16/1998 Cottonwood, CA *Husband, Todd Garton, hired Norman Daniels to killer pregnant wife*

Garton told [petitioner] that May 16, 1998, would be a good day to kill Carole because she would be home alone while Garton was working at a gun show. [Petitioner] took the preceding week off from work to ensure he would be available when the opportunity arose. [Petitioner] spent the night of May 15 in the Gartons’ home. The next day, [petitioner] accompanied Garton to the gun show but later drove himself and Carole to the Gartons’ residence after she stopped by the show following a visit to the hospital maternity ward. As he drove to the Garton residence, [petitioner] thought about turning the opposite way and going to the police station. On further reflection, though, [petitioner] thought such a move could make things even worse for his family. If he went to the police, it would simply be his word against Garton’s. [Petitioner] decided to proceed to the Garton home and carry out the plan.
At the Gartons’ residence, [petitioner] and Carole watched a rented movie. Later, [petitioner] returned the movie to the video store while Carole went to lie down in her bedroom. During his trip to and from the video store, [petitioner] thought about how he would enter the house and carry out the killing.
When [petitioner] returned to the Garton home, Carole was still lying on her bed. [Petitioner] entered Carole’s bedroom with the .44 revolver cocked in his pocket, and began conversing with her. Thinking it was “[n]ow or never,” [petitioner] turned away so Carole would not see him removing the gun; then he whirled around and shot Carole in the head as she was looking at him. [Petitioner] fired twice more into her head and twice into her torso.
[Petitioner] paged Garton and E-mailed The Company about completing the assignment. [Petitioner] did not really try to dispose of the gun or other evidence.

Taken from Daniels appeal, there is more information in the appeal document.

I have not been able to find pictures of either the victim, Carole Garton or the 2 defendants, Todd Garton or Norman Daniels. If you have one you would like to share, please let me know.
