  1. Just a quick FYI: Stacey Castor, the subject of Mommy Deadlieat, died last year in prison. Her daughter was a student of mine inmiddle school. Could not believe how evil this woman was.

    1. Oh, wow - was it the older daughter or the younger? I hope they are both doing well now! Still shaking my head over the way that mother's mind worked - so awful...

    2. It was Ashley, the one she tried to frame. Don't really know how they are doing, hope they got the help they surely need.
