    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. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS.

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.”
