I’ve been somewhat lazy lately, ignoring critical company work, ignoring the news and futilely trying to conquer my DDO addiction. I’ve also been watching the PYSIH.com post tally creep up to 1000 and the comments climbing to 50,000.
We just received some more hate mail, however, and thought some of you might want to know.
You’ll also be pleased to know that the PYSIH Christmas party will be on a boat.
As of right now, we’re sitting on 296 Facebook fans.
That won’t do.
We are quite certain that there are more of you out there that follow us because we’ve easily been seeing more than 100k visitors per month lately.
NORFOLK FATHER SENTENCED TO 15 YEARS FOR TWIN BABY’S DEATH
Excerpts from an article by Michelle Washington – PilotOnline.com
Corey Bryant said he didn’t know that his wife was starving their 10-month-old twin daughters.
One girl, Miracle Grace, died on April 8, 2008, the day Bryant returned from a three-week Navy cruise. The other girl, Heaven LeeAnna, survived, but was hospitalized for months with extreme malnutrition and dehydration.
Prosecutor Jill Harris argued that Bryant not only knew about but participated in the girls’ starvation and neglect for months before his departure. Although the girls were with their mother, Heaven Smith, in the days immediately preceding Miracle’s death, Harris said, Bryant told Smith not to take the children to the hospital and later told Smith to lie to police about where the girls had been.
Let’s talk about something that will brighten everyone’s mind–Sexual Slavery. A PBS and US State Department report said that as many as 800,000 people are transported across international borders each year for the sex trade. As many as 17,500 are believed to be trafficked into the United States, but apparently, those 17,500 foreign sex slaves weren’t enough for Mario Andrette McNeil and Antoinette Davis.
They’ve only recently been arrested, and their victim, Shaniya Davis was only found yesterday, so we don’t even have an autopsy. Antoinette’s sister thinks the charges are false, and Antoinette has not yet entered a plea, so I do feel a bit uncomfortable about establishing a poll, but this is the sort of story that knifes the average reader of PYSIH in the heart. Why would I inflict this on you? My physical proximity to the case has already left a gaping emotional wound in my soul, and my mother always taught me to share.
BERRY RECEIVES THREE YEARS
by Steve Grazier – The Cortez Journal
A Montezuma County man who pleaded guilty to felony counts of manslaughter and menacing after admitting to killing his father and decapitating and dismembering the body was sentenced Friday.
Jeremiah Raymond Berry was sentenced to three years in a Colorado Department of Corrections facility followed by 10 years of “intense supervised” probation. He appeared Friday afternoon before 22nd Judicial District Judge Douglas Walker, who accepted a plea deal reached between the district attorney and Berry’s public defender.
“You killed your father, you shot him and you destroyed evidence,” Walker said in announcing the sentence. “You were (also) sexually abused by your father … and have suffered from mental abuse.”
ALL DEFENDANTS ACCEPT PLEA DEALS, RECEIVE SENTENCES RANGING FROM 40 YEARS TO LIFE IN PRISON
Well, better late than never, but here’s the rundown on the fates of Erin Caffey, Charlie James Wilkinson, Charles Allen Waid and Bobbi Gale Johnson.
Just to refresh your memories, each one of these four geniuses murdered or assisted in the murder of three member of an unsuspecting family, the Caffeys of Alba, Texas. They did this because the oldest daughter, 16-year-old Erin Caffey, was told she could no longer see her 20-year-old boyfriend, none other than Charlie James Wilkinson. With assistance from Charles Allen Waid and Bobbi Gale Johnson, the two lovers decided to get rid of Erin’s family so they could be together forever.

JURY GIVES HARVE JOHNSON THE DEATH SENTENCE
Jurors took 95 minutes on Monday to decide Harve L. Johnson should die for fatally beating 2-year-old Darisabel Baez, in what they also decided was a case of torture.
It was about five minutes longer than they took to convict him on Friday of first-degree murder.
The six-man, six-woman jury rejected an impassioned plea by defense attorney Ari Weitzman to spare Johnson’s life, and also rejected the argument that Johnson’s own horrendous childhood should be taken into consideration when deciding his fate.
Jurors unanimously agreed Johnson should die for his crime. The only other possible punishment was life in prison without the possibility of parole.
There is some justice is the word after all. Just when I get to the point that I think that everything I’m doing here might be a waste of time, and the fools who comment on this website and tell me that I’m just fooling myself, that no one really cares about right and wrong and honesty and truth, something like this happens.
On Saturday, December 15th, 2007, four bystanders rescued Michelle Lynn Kehoe, 33, of Coralville, Iowa and her two young sons after she drove her minivan into the icy Iowa River. Kehoe said she lost control of the car when she was distracted by her kids and drifted off the driving surface of the road onto the dirt shoulder.
