  1. What happened to janice’s daughter?

    • That I do not know, but hopefully she is doing well.

    • Janice and Danny were from my hometown, Adairsville. I know that Marlena was returned to Adairsville to live with Danny’s mom and brother. His brother was crazy-they say from a head injury in the war, but could be his family too. I believe they only raised Marlena, so the baby that Janice had in prison may have been put up for adoption. Marlena used to come in the bank where I used to work, some of the other girls I worked with said she had problems, but she seemed nice enough to me. I also knew the lady who raised Janice. She was mean and had the stinkiest house you can imagine. Does not excuse what they did to that beautiiful girl, though. That was horrible, and they made the choice!

      • the uncle u are talkin abt(dannys bro) was injured in the military, strange yes but FAR from being “crazy” which most ppl thought that abt him, but he had a heart of gold & was a good person once u got to know him…he was a good uncle to marlena.

  2. This episode is on investigation discovery as of 8:20am “.Deadly Women Kinky Killers

  3. Why wasn’t my commentary added to this blog, being that Demetra was going to be part of our family before this happened. Everyone should know how great of a person she was.

  4. What happened to the little girl?

    • I was not able to find out anything on the Buttrum’s children. And since they were children, they were not involved, and I would not want to include them here. They should be able to grown up without this over their heads. I hope that is what happened.

    • Marlena was known as marlana buttram. she was my foster sister. I was looking for her today to see if I could reunite and say hi. In 1995 She was sent back to live with her grandmother in adairsville.

  5. i grew up with marlena buttrum & she told me the story & i really didnt know how horrific this was until i researched it….

    • i can answer some questions abt her & her childhood, we were neighbors & grew up 2gether

      • Hi crystal, I’d be very interested to know how Marlena’s life went-did she grow up w/maria? Does she visit Janice? Who raised them+how does she feel 2day about Janice? Thank you!

      • I don’t know if my reply was posted so here I go again-id be interested 2know if marlena were raised 2gether+by family? How do they feel about their mom+do the visit? I’ve always felt for them its very tragic. Thank you

        • Mara,

          I am the blog owner. Just wanted you to know that all comments have to be approved before the post so that is why you could not tell if your comment posted. You did not do anything wrong. :)

          • Thanx Bonnie, I love all of your blogs-always factually correct+well written!
            Sent from my BlackBerry® by Boost Mobile

        • she WAS indeed raised by dannys mother, she was a little peculiar( would make up stories like she was preg & still in elementary school) alot of ppl picked on her so i was always in fights taking up for her. Her grandmother evelyn was VERY strict on her(i think scared of how she would turn out) growing up marlena didnt want for anything. i felt for her & she was like a lil sis to me. she suffered some abuse frm her grandmother, verbal & physical…was taken away for a while durin her early teen yrs….but things did get better later on & went back home to her grandmother. Last i heard she sold all their land & property in adairsville & moved to alabama…i have been tryin to find her..

        • Marlana was my foster sister. She was not raised with her bio sister. She was taken into state custody and in 1995 sent to live with her bio grandmother.

  6. Thanx Melissa, children like Marlena always have a place in my heart, In a way so does Janiice-even though she’s where she belongs+commited an atrocity,35yrs is a long time+shes never getting out, Charlene Gallego or Karla Homolka got a pass for doing a lot worse+I wonder- did their looks play a role as opposed to Janice or Carol Bundy? Seems like the large,ungainly+homely suffer a worse fate whether its high school or the criminal justice system!

    • I don’t know if her looks influenced the cases but in the Gallego and Homolka case both women testified against the men. Also in the Holmoka case the authorities made the deal with her before they realized that she was fully involved in every aspect of the crime. Once the deal was made they couldn’t back out. Also her sentence might have been much greater than theirs because she and her husband committed their rape and murder with their child in the room and definitely awake. That might have explained why she got a larger sentence than Gallego even though the victim count was smaller.

  7. the baby, marie was sent to live with another brother jerry & his wife in plainville ,ga (not far frm where evelyn & family is now buried)

    • You wanted to know what happened to the little girl. She lived with her aunt and uncle Larry and Jackie. She had a great chlidhood never wanted for anything. Yes her grandmother was a mean lady. She is 32 years old now she is happily married with two great sons. I know all of this because im that littke girl. If yiu have any qustions yiu can adk me

      • Also I do not visit her I have not seen her since I was 14 years old. I messed up on my typing. If you have any questions feel free to ask about me or marlana. We did not grow up in the same house but we did grow up together. We were always and still is sisters.
