    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.

Monsters Among Us: Alfred Swinton killed Carla Terry, sentenced to 60 years in prison; Linked to at least 4 other murders

remember-the-victims

swinton-victims

Victims
Carla Terry, 28 [1/13/1991 Hartford, CT] (no picture)
Mary Shirley, 29 [7/15/1987 Hebron, CT]
Patricia Thompson, 22 [11/28/1988 Keney Park, CT] (no picture)
Tameika Mayo, 15 [3/11/1990 Rocky Hill, CT]
Deidra Dancy, 19 [6/10/1990 South Windsor, CT]

Alfred Swinton has only been tried and convicted for one victim, Carla Terry. **Update 6/2017** Swinton’s conviction has been overturned. He has been released pending his new trial. His next court date is 7/20/2017. He has not yet been exonerated. That will apparently be decided by a new jury. DNA evidence points to him not being the killer of Carla Terry. There is other evidence that has called his guilt into question.
