    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.

Prior Prison Record

Summary of Incident
On 09/13/2005 in Lubbock County, Texas, a 29 year old white female body was found deceased in a suitcase. The subject had sexually assaulted the victim and then caused death by striking the victim with or against a hard object and then choking the victim. This also resulted in the death of the victim’s 5 week old fetus. The subject was arrested by the Lubbock Police Department.


Race and Gender of Victim
29 year old white female.

Final Statement:Stop the death penalty. Do it to save my brothers in death row.” [No, he could not be bothered to express remorse or say something nice to the victims’ loved ones. But, then again, I do not believe he had any remorse for his heinous crimes.]
