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.

Samantha Jo Lezark murder 1/5/2003 Wichita Falls, TX *Kristopher Kyle Russell convicted, sentenced to 99 years in prison*


Samantha Jo Lezark

From Russell’s appeal:

Samantha Lezark was murdered in her bedroom on the evening of January 5 or the morning of January 6, 2003. Detective Tony Fox of the Wichita Falls Police Department was assigned as lead investigator on the case. The medical examiner determined the cause of death to have been strangulation by a coaxial cable wrapped around her neck three times and tied with a square knot. A bloody fire extinguisher lay next to Lezark’s body, and her head had contusions consistent with being hit by the fire extinguisher. There were no signs of forced entry into the house.

A palm print on the coaxial cable was identified as that of Appellant Kristopher Kyle Russell, and his fingerprint and his DNA were found on the fire extinguisher. Appellant’s partial latent thumbprint was also identified on a laser pointer found on Lezark’s bed. Appellant testified at trial that he had met Lezark in an Internet chat room in late November 2002 and had entered into a sexual relationship with her by mid-December.

Two of Lezark’s neighbors testified they saw Appellant at her house on the afternoon of January 5, and Appellant admitted he was there that afternoon and evening. A coworker of Lezark’s found her body the next morning when Lezark failed to report to work. A jury convicted Appellant of first degree murder and assessed his sentence at ninety-nine years’ confinement.
