  • Comment Policy

    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). 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 - Please remember to not use all CAPS or capitalize the beginning letter of every single word or every other word, or use IM/text abbreviations (except like LOL). Please have respect for other readers and type words out. Not everyone is into that and it is inappropriate here. [examples: "cuzn" "tha" "dat" and so many more] Learn proper English! You should have learned it in school.
    4 - Your comments must be all in English, using proper English, too. No huge run-on sentences (use punctuation). Pretend you learned something in English class.
    5 - I will also not allow Anonymous comments. This includes using anonymous, obviously fake email addresses (you@you.com, me@me.com, anonymous@yahoo.com, or fictional characters, etc.)
    6 - 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.
    7 - You must be 18 years of age or older to comment.
    If you have a question or problem with this, please feel free to email me (there is a link to my email above).


The Tennessee True Crime Workshop

Workshop

Writers & readers of true crime are invited to The True Crime Workshop on February 8-9, 2014 in Fondren Hall at the Scarritt- Bennett Center in Nashville, Tennessee, a place rich in history and full of legends and stories. The Scarritt- Bennett Center was chosen specifically for its history, mission statement, and architecture. The gothic stone and stained glass windows, original furnishings, lush gardens, and wooden beams look like a “Harry Potter” movie.

The workshop has multiple purposes, One is to write better true crime. Successful true crime authors, to include Cathy Scott and Michael Tabman, will share their success stories while explaining the “do’s and don’ts” of true crime writing. Several law enforcement professionals and nonprofit organizations will present. For example, classes will be presented on reading blood spatter and glass patterns, and a class on locating pertinent legal documentation is offered.

There will be a special event called “Lunch with the Author” where future authors and fans can share a table with a published author, publishing representatives, and law enforcement personnel to discuss ideas, ask questions, and exchange information.

Hope you will pass the word on and you can attend. See The Tennessee True Crime Workshop

Thank you

Deadly Duo: Angela Dawn Fowler got Robert Heydman to kill her husband, Richard Fowler

DVawareness2

Richard Fowler

Angela Dawn Fowler only received 13 years for plotting the murder of her husband, Richard Fowler, and setting it up. It looks like she is eligible for parole 3/6/2015. I do not know when her parole hearing is, but there is a petition started to oppose her parole (it is not my petition). The link for petition is at the bottom of the links. I hope everyone will sign it. She did not get as much time as she deserves, so she should have to spend every single day of that sentence in prison. It was because of her that Richard Fowler was murdered.
