  • 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.

  1. Mr. Newell was not a very smart fellow. He had been attacked by both his wife and Mr. Giffen, the boarder boyfriend of the wife, in 1993, which was a year before the murder, in 1994, yet he still allowed Mr. Giffen to remain in their home. It’s one thing to continue to allow your spouse to stay in your home after he/she attacks you, but you don’t grant that privilege to others.

    • Mr Newell was attacked in 1993 by his wife’s step brother and Mr Giffen. Both wore masks so Mr Newell would not have known who his attackers were. Mr Giffen then murdered Mr Newell in 1994. Mrs Newell was present during that attempt. Mr Giffen confessed to both attacks.

      • like they said he did not knew mr giffen was behind first attack
        but yes still dirty game what she has playyed

  2. It doesn’t indicate Mr newell was attacked by his wife previously, where does your information come from? Thanks

  3. How amazing some people can be when it comes to being blind to what’s right in front of them. Jon Newell was just another example of somebody who was in denial because they didn’t WANT to believe what they may have suspected. It cost him his life. Moral of the story : pay attention to your instincts.

  4. Watch the show “Scorned: Love Kills (Season 2) Addicted to Sex” on Investigation Discovery and you will get the story.

  5. She is flipping cuckoo for cocoa puffs!!!!!
