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. Although I didn’t see the sentence mentioned here for the killing of his 3rd wife, I did a little research and found that he got life without parole, although he’s appealing his conviction. This guy should never get out of prison.

    • That is because all of the information available is confusing. Most of the time it is said that Tammy was his 2nd wife, sometimes 3rd. But now I have found this information:

      first wife: Diane j. Cyr – legally divorced
      second wife: Joann Harnois – no legal divorce before marrying third wife, Tammy
      third wife: Tammy Lynn Petrin (murdered)

      He did get 3 consecutive life sentences for his crimes. He will never get out of prison.
