Monsters Among Us: Brian David Steckel *The Driftwood Killer* raped and killed Sandra Lee Long then set her bed on fire; He also confessed to at least 2 other murders – Executed 11/4/2005

Victims
Sandra Lee Long, 29
Frances Mary Kiefer, 44 [confessed to]

Brian Steckel was a despicable excuse for a human being. He raped and killed Sandra Lee Long, then set the bed she was on on fire. She actually died of smoke inhalation. During his trial, he sent a copy of her autopsy report to her mother, with a note saying, “Read it and weep. She’s gone forever. Don’t cry over burnt flesh.” During his trial, mind you. And there were death penalty opponents who thought he could do some good if he was allowed to live. But of course, none of those people said anything about Sandra Lee Long and what she suffered. What her loved ones continue to suffer to this day. Sometimes punishment just needs to be punishment. Not something to hope he can make good. He proved that he was not a good person and he even said several times that he deserved the death penalty.

While he was in prison he also mailed confessions to another murder [Frances Kiefer, a neighbor] but nothing has come of it that I am aware of. I am still including her as a victim of his, since he willingly and voluntarily confessed to her murder.

Brian David Steckel

Final Words: “I want to say I’m sorry for the cruel things I did. I’m not the same man I was when I came to jail. I changed. I’m a better man…I walked in here without a fight and I accept my punishment. It is time to go. I love you people.” He told his cousin and a friend, who were witnesses at his execution, to tell his 12 year old daughter, “I said no excuses.”

Monsters Among Us: Cliff Douglas Parker set fire to Betty Roberts home after being asked to leave the home, she died later in the burn unit; Sentenced to life in prison

From Parker’s appeal: Officers Lindsey Stewart and Carson Bell were dispatched to a house fire. The officers could see the flames “all the way down the block.” They arrived before any other officers or firefighters. When they arrived at the scene, a woman screamed that someone was still inside the burning house. Stewart and Bell ran to the house. They saw Appellant standing on the porch, “nonchalantly” smoking a cigarette. The officers ignored Appellant and kicked the door open. As the officers entered the house, they saw an unconscious woman (Betty Roberts) lying face down on the floor.

As the officers attempted to remove Roberts from the burning house, Appellant came inside and put his hands on Stewart’s back, blocking her progress and causing her to drop Roberts. Stewart pushed Appellant and resumed her attempt to remove Roberts from the burning building. Again, Appellant blocked Stewart, causing her to drop Roberts a second time. Out of
concern for Bell’s, Roberts’s, and her own safety, Stewart pushed Appellant as hard as she could. He fell outside onto the porch. The officers were then able to remove Roberts from the house. Once outside, the officers tried to move Roberts to a safer location. Appellant straddled Roberts and held her against the ground, blocking the officers’ efforts. The officers grabbed him by the shoulders and pulled him off of Roberts, and eventually they were able to move Roberts to the yard.

Stewart asked Appellant if anyone else remained in the house. He did not answer. Stewart demanded that Appellant tell her if anybody was still in the house. Finally, Appellant told her that someone was still in the back bedroom. As the officers prepared to re-enter the house, the fire department arrived. Stewart told them that someone was still in the house. The firemen entered the house and retrieved the second person.

Another officer brought Appellant to Officer James Minter. Because of the chaos of the still-active fire scene, Minter asked Appellant to wait in the back of his police cruiser, and Appellant complied. Minter testified that he did not place
Appellant under arrest. He did not handcuff Appellant; he did not tell Appellant that he was under arrest; he did not tell Appellant that he could not leave; and he would have allowed Appellant to leave had Appellant asked to do so.
About twenty-three minutes after Minter directed Appellant to wait in the police cruiser, Lieutenant Steve Larison of the Fort Worth Fire Department interviewed Appellant. In an attempt to learn details that might help his investigation and identify residents of the burning house, Larison talked to Appellant for about twenty minutes. At this point, Larison had yet to determine the cause of the fire. The cruiser’s video camera recorded the interview. After more investigation, Appellant was charged with arson.

Roberts later died from injuries she suffered during the fire. Appellant was then re-indicted for arson-based capital murder. The trial court determined that Appellant was not in custody when the interview occurred and that the video of
the interview was therefore admissible as a matter of law
