  1. In this snapped episode, Tracy’s daughter says “I know my mom didn’t go this”.. I find it mind boggling that anyone would say something like that, especially when they weren’t there. Of course she ( Tracy ) committed this horrible crime and her daughter needs to accept that this is the reality she needs to come to terms with. Not only was Tracy’s estranged boyfriend shot in the top of his head as he slept, he was repeatedly stabbed in the groin after he was dead which says a woman committed this crime. She bought the trough and cement the body was found in and the area the body was found was familiar to her. Many took her side saying a former police officer, which Tracy was, wouldn’t keep the murder weapon, but that’s just it, when she came up with the trough and cement idea, she actually thought the bullet and the body would never be found even if the cement filled trough was found. She just didn’t think anyone would suspect anything about a block of cement. They should make this evil witch serve every minute of her sentences.

  2. When a person has been in multiple failed relationships and blames the failures on the other person(s), I don’t believe them and it is more than likely they themself are the one with the unresolved inner issues. Don’t get me wrong., if they took responsibility for at least one of the failures, I could understand but this didn’t happen. Why Tracy’s daughter, mom and friends would say she was innocent of murdering her boyfriend is simply false denials. Tracy bought the trough, she brought the cement and the cement splatters in the bed of her truck point to her as being the murderer. If that isn’t enough, the post mortem stab wounds weren’t inflicted by a drug dealer. That was done by a jilted lover further pointing at Tracy. She never took any responsibility for any of her many failed relationships and the history of her shucking responsibility will not end here., she’ll go to her grave letting her family and friends believe go their entire lives believing in her false innocence. It shows she has no remorse whatsoever for unjustly taking a life and for that she should never be granted parole.
