I just watched The Killer Speaks: Payback: Earl Forrest and am amazed at how many times Earl Forrest blames the victim (Harriett ‘Toddy’ Smith for the murders. Yes, he says he wished it never happened, but he does not take responsibility for his own actions. He is a real monster.

**Update** 5/11/2016 – Earl Mitchell Forrest was executed today.

  1. These drug killings are all over our society – in big cities, little towns, and rural villages. There’s no place immune anymore. I don’t know why they’re waiting until 2015 to execute Mr. Forrest. They should have executed him long ago.

  2. Was Earl Forest executed in Missouri yet?

  3. I just watched this episode this week and was startled at the similarities between Earl and my ex husband who always blames everyone else for his actions, scary!! This guy is most definitely a monster among us. I still don’t see where Earl has been executed and I don’t see where he is scheduled for execution.

    • Hi Buffy,

      To my knowledge he is not scheduled for execution yet, so he probably still has appeals waiting. For many states, the road to execution is quite a long road. I will update this as soon as I hear anything.

  4. His execution is tonight at 6pm CST.
