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.

Victims
Carla Terry, 28 [1/13/1991 Hartford, CT] (no picture)
Mary Shirley, 29 [7/15/1987 Hebron, CT]

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.
