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). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 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-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.).

  1. i am a relative my grandma was viola parrott

    • Hi, I just got done reading The final truth and am just at a loss of words for the horrifficness that took place! I was wondering if you knew what happened to Janice Kirbys mother after she found out it was her brother who killed Janice? Is she still alive? I cant imagine the betrayl she must have felt knowing it was her brother Peewee that killed her daughter! thank you for any iformation-mari

  2. I am so interested in this story. I should not say story! I am interested in what Pee Wee though and how he reacted to his childhood trauma. I feel so sorry for him.

  3. Do you know anything about the growing up of Pee Wee?

  4. i think that he was just acting out what happen to him i feel sorry for em but he had to learn i wish i coulda met him tho

  5. maybe he wentto heaven i am rele interested in his life stories and wat went on in his head

  6. i am his aunts cousin

  7. he also worked for my uncle and they were rele gud friends his name was donny beard

  8. Doreen was my half-sister. She originally lived in Reading, PA
    Her mother was Vivian Barlow.

  9. how can you feel sorry for him?!! reports say that he had a very loving atmosphere growing up, so no excuses for this horrible man!

  10. People who grow up in wonderful, loving homes don’t turn out this way.

    • There have been many serial killers that have come from decent homes and have committed horriffic crimes. People are born like that without a soul! Many people who have come from terrible homes and terrible living conditions have grown to be wonderful human beings! Yes its true that if a family is full of love and caring the chances of a loving stable human being are much more possible but if a person is born evil there is nothing you can do about it!

  11. OOOW POOR,POOR,pee-wee,yip so sad to see these rabid,inhuman, vulchers pass, i mean fry. I wonder audry if you had met your beloved pee-wee, would you have a comment on his sad departure from life?? I wonder if you would have gotten yhe chance to learn of internet access? Its a mind boggler. but due to the FACT pee-pee,killed ahh 20 give or take a few,inocennt lifes i just don’t think it could have been possible. one never realy knows these things.
