Monsters Among Us: Karl Myers killed 2 women, Shawn Marie Williams and Cindy Michelle Marzano; Sentenced to death; Also a suspect in others

Victims
Shawn Marie Williams, 22 [4/16/1993]
Cindy Michelle Marzano, 29 [3/15/1996]
Lori Lee Farmer, 8 [6/13/1977] suspect
Michelle Heather Guse, 9 [6/13/1977] suspect
Doris Denise Milner, 10 [6/13/1977] suspect

From Myers’ appeal: The victim, Cindy Marzano, and Appellant were acquaintances. She left home for work on March 14, 1996, bearing no bruises or wounds on her face or head.   She drove her 1984 silver Chevrolet Impala to work for her 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. shift.   While at work she spoke to Appellant twice between 7:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. and was overheard agreeing to meet Appellant after work.   She checked out at 9:09 p.m. and was seen thereafter at Denny’s restaurant where she and a man remained about thirty (30) minutes.

At 11:51 p.m., Appellant was at a convenience store, where he had been a regular customer, and remained two to two and one-half hours.   He washed his truck while there and told the clerk he had been at a relative’s house.   At 12:30 a.m., Cindy Marzano was found floating face down in the water at the Highway 33 Landing on the navigation channel near the Port of Catoosa.   Her blouse and bra were pulled up and she had bruises on her forehead, upper left arm and neck.   She had cuts on her face and an abrasion between her shoulder blades.   She had bruises on her right thigh and left leg.   These injuries were suffered prior to death.   Asphyxiation was determined to be the cause of death.   DNA testing established that spermatozoa found in her vagina matched Appellant’s DNA.

Appellant first denied that he had seen the victim that night.   He finally admitted talking to the victim that night at her work.   He said they agreed to meet at Denny’s for coffee, and he was home by 11:45 p.m. He denied any physical contact with the victim.   He later admitted to having consensual sex with the victim that night.

Inmate Sidney Byrd testified that Appellant admitted killing two women, and further admitted that (concerning Cindy Marzano) “he was fucking her from behind when he strangled her and she died.”

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.

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.”
