102: The Sinclair Murders

Update: 2020-06-297


In 1967, The Sinclair family in Auburn, Alabama had been stalked for over a year. A college kid named Edward Seibold had briefly dated the oldest daughter, Cathey. When she rejected him, he became fixated on her widowed mother, 44 year old Juanita. His obsession with these women would turn into a murderous rage. Edward Seibold’s crimes shocked and traumatized the small city of Auburn. Over fifty years later, residents still cannot shake the horror of what happened.

The Everyday Bombshell

Siebolt is definitely sick, but he wasn't insane. He knew what he was doing. He knew it was wrong. He did it because he is sick and it sexually excited him to cause women harm, but he knew what he was doing was wrong. He deserves the death penalty. If there ever comes a time when those people can no longer attend the parole hearings, I will be happy to do so, in the name of all women. I don't care that he found Jesus. Good for him. That gives him Grace but does not grant him immunity from completing his punishment. But it is a personal affront to all woman that Siebolt even has a chance at parole every 5 years. Sorry I'm not sorry.
