    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). 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.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - 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. If you have a question or problem with this, please feel free to email me (there is a link to my email above).

  1. What do you think about this case, Bonnie? Was this an actual homocide, perpetrated by Lucille Miller? I respect your opinion.
    I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve never read any Joan Didion. When I first saw the title (of the book containing a short story about this case), I thought it sounded like Joyce Carol Oates. Her “novelized” works about real people (“Blonde”, “Where Have You Going, Where Have You Been?” and “Dark Water”) are excellent.

    • This is one I am unsure of. I could not find how the car went up in flames (meaning was there an accelorant). If so, no one mentioned that she smelled like gasoline. It seems like the public just took it for granite that she was guilty. Her daughter did not say how she felt either way. I do not know if she was guilty or not, but I am not sure I could have convicted her.
