    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.

Monsters Among Us: Aaron Lee Skeen kidnapped, raped and murdered Sandy Jeffers

Sandy JeffersFrom Aaron Skeen’s appeal:

On May 6, 2003 [Petitioner] did enter the apartment of Sandy Jeffers located in Blount County, Tennessee without her permission and with the intent to commit a felony. When [Petitioner] entered the apartment Ms. Jeffers was sleeping. Skeen proceeded to blindfold Ms. Jeffers with several layers of duct tape over her eyes. He also bound her hands behind her back with duct tape in order to confine her against her will. [Petitioner] also led Sandy Jeffers to believe that he had a weapon, a gun. After Sandy Jeffers was bound, [Petitioner] raped Sandy Jeffers anally, vaginally and orally. [Petitioner] accomplished these rapes with an article used to le[a]d Sandy Jeffers to believe that [Petitioner] had a weapon. Sandy Jeffers suffered bodily injury as a result of the anal and vaginal rapes. These injuries included anal lacerations and contusions of the uterine cervix. All of the above is based on forensic evidence, autopsy reports, and [Petitioner]’s statement. There is also evidence from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation that concludes semen samples taken from the body of Sandy Jeffers match the DNA profile from [Petitioner].

After [Petitioner] raped Sandy Jeffers, he then took her, still bound, against her will from her apartment. He also took personal items belonging to Ms. Jeffers at that time. This was determined by witness statements, forensic evidence, and [Petitioner]’s statements. As a result of this kidnapping Sandy Jeffers ultimately suffered serious bodily injury. The proof would also show that [Petitioner] led Sandy Jeffers to believe that he had [a] weapon, a gun. After kidnapping Sandy Jeffers from her apartment the proof would show that he took her, bound and against her will, to a location in Blount county, Tennessee referred to as Look Rock. Once at this location, [Petitioner] threw Sandy Jeffers over the railing and down a cliff. The body of Sandy Jeffers was located on May 9, 2003 approximately 63 feet down this cliff. According to autopsy results Sandy Jeffers died as a result of numerous injuries sustained during the fall. These injuries included but are not limited to several broken ribs, a fractured spine, broken pelvis, severe brain injuries, a punctured lung, kidney damage, and many contusions. Autopsy results would also show that Sandy Jeffers did not die instantly from these injuries. At the time her body was located, her eyes were still covered with several layers of duct tape and her hands were still bound behind her back.

The physical evidence, forensic evidence, witness statements, medical proof and the statement of [Petitioner] would prove that Sandy Jeffers was killed during the course of a continuous scheme of rape, kidnapping, burglary, and theft. The proof will also established [sic] that Sandy Jeffers was killed in a premeditated manner.

Further investigation revealed that [Petitioner] had been in the apartment of Sandy Jeffers on 3 prior occasions without her knowledge or permission in April and May of 2003. On those 3 occasions [Petitioner] took several personal items belonging to-3-Sandy Jeffers, including personal checks. [Petitioner] also forged the signature of Sandy Jeffers with intent to defraud Wal-Mart on her personal checks on three occasions in April and May 2003. The above would be established through forensic evidence, finger print analysis, abundant physical evidence, and [Petitioner’s] statement.

Update: Beverly Lyn Carter murder *Her body was located in a shallow grave; Suspect Arron Lewis has implicated a ‘second suspect’*

Beverly Carter
Beverly Carter

The Carter’s released two statements today, the latest one this afternoon, which reads:
“We’re so lost right now. Mom was the heart and rock of our family. A husband, two sons, two daughters-in-law, four grandchildren (and one on the way) have been robbed of their most significant source of joy on this earth. Her drive, spirit, and love of life and people were nothing short of incredible. We urge you not to be discouraged by the evil in this world. God is greater, and good always prevails. Bless you all.”

Earlier today, the family released this statement:
“We are devastated at the loss of our precious Beverly. There is now a hole in our hearts that will never be filled. Mr. Lewis robbed us of an amazing wife, loving mother and grandmother. Her grandkids will never get to the know the magnitude of her greatness. As we grieve, we thank law enforcement for their diligence in finding her, every person that aided in the search efforts, New Life Pentecostal Church, Arkansas Blue Cross Blue Shield, our community for their love and support, and for every prayer that has been spoken. We draw some comfort in knowing that she is now in the arms of Jesus. God bless you all.”
