    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.).

Monsters Among Us: Austin Boutain charged with the murder of ChenWei Guo, during a carjacking at the University of Utah; He is also a person of interest, along with his wife Kathleen, in a Colorado murder

Victims
Mitchell Bradford Ingle, 63
ChenWei Guo, 23

Statement from ChenWei Guo’s family:
“We are devastated by the loss of our son ChenWei, who brought immense joy into our lives and the lives of all who knew him. It is hard to capture in words his happy, positive outlook on life. ChenWei aspired to work in the future helping others to feel better about themselves. He was outgoing, adventurous, highly intellectual and a deeply faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was thankful to be able to share his testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ with many as a missionary in Provo.

We are grateful for the experiences ChenWei had in Utah and at the University of Utah. We are very moved by the outpouring of support and sympathy we have received from so many of his friends and even from those who did not know ChenWei personally. These expressions of remembrance and condolence have given us comfort.

We know many are interested in ChenWei’s story, but we respectfully ask for privacy at this time as we grieve our beloved son.”

Psycho For Love: Carolyn Gloria Blanton aka Jane Lynn Woodry killed & dismembered her boyfriend, Peter Michael Green but was found not guilty by reason of insanity

Carolyn Gloria Blanton aka Jane Lynn Woodry has been released from the State Hospital. I believe it was in 2009. Sadly, all I can find is stuff on her. Nothing on the victim, Peter Michael Green. Barely a word except about him being dismembered and then some of his body eaten by the killer. This saddens me as he deserves to be remembered.
