Description

After Darlie was sentenced to death for the murder of her two boys her defense team immediately started the appeals process. There was a lot of information they felt the public didn't get to hear and evidence that could prove an innocent woman is sitting on death row for a crime she did not commit.

has anyone thought it may be tommy lynnsells the cross country killer ? He was confirmed to be in texas from 1990-1999 and was convicted of one murder there in in 1999. He was known to break in peoples houses sexually assult kids and women then kill them. Also known to use weapons in the home and admitted to using a butcher knife from the block in the kitchen in different murders. He had very little or no previous contact with his victims looking at the crime scene photos they are very similar to some of his victims scenes.

Okay so from the beginning I thought the knife could've been clean because Darlie said when she woke up the killer was walking away. If he's all nonchalant, I thought he probably wiped the knife on something so he could leave it behind. And NOW we have a sock found with BOTH boys' blood on it???? Hello???? He wiped the knife clean, that's why there's no blood on the carpet where Darlie picked it up!

I'm curious if there are hesitation marks around the more serious wounds she suffered

Ya'll need to calm down. Seriously. Just because two women are bringing up the possible innocence of a convicted woman does not make them biased. If True Crime Garage did the exact same piece, word for word, there would be no cries of bias. Anyone who claims bias due to gender is themselves being biased through sexism. Ashley and Britt aren't being "triggered". Relax. They are, as any good investigator should, looking at both sides and weighing the evidence. Throughout most of the first episode, I was convinced Darlie is guilty too. There's a lot that looks real bad for her. But I also fully acknowledge that police frequently lock on to a suspect and refuse to let it go despite evidence to the contrary. I also fully acknowledge that they seem to have done that in this case. This episode, through the lens of any rational human, absolutely brings reasonable doubt. There's a lot of pretty reasonable explanations for things that happened. The recent conviction of Susan Smith definitely affected the trial. Jurors more convicted on character than evidence. Police ignored things like the fingerprint because it didn't fit their narrative. While I do think there is absolutely a chance that someone else did this, the big one that I can't get over is that, at least according to what has been presented in these episodes, Darlie always maintained that she woke up because her kid tugged on her arm. While chloroform is an explanation of how she could have slept through such a vicious attack, there are a few critical problems with this - first of all, she was not sexually assaulted. If the perpetrator didn't want to rape her, why not just kill her first and then kill the kids? Secondly, and more importantly, many of the wounds she had were described as consistent with defensive wounds. She never once claimed to have fought off an attacker, and if she was chloroformed there would obviously not be defensive wounds. I cannot think of a logical way to make that fit and that casts a lot of suspicion still on her. People need to learn how to approach contentious subjects diplomatically and with an open mind. Things that we believe are frequently untrue, especially when we do not have all of the information.

Just heard the insurance scam part towards the end. First comment still stands but if that part wasn't fabricated and her husband actually attempted that, then this case should absolutely be looked at most closely. It does sound however like that may have been a fake and desperate attempt to years later create more sympathy for Darlene. Whatever the case may be, hopefully we can get some truth to the entire matter as a whole sooner rather than later. And I mean the whole definitive truth regardless of the outcome.

So just because a mom is depressed that means that she won't murder her kids? Lol um doesn't that happen like all the time? Love it when women get triggered over the most idiotic shit. This whole triggered, cancel culture, oh so offended mentality is so tired. You know how those shows go back in time and people cringe at how they were in the 80s, 90s, etc? The 10s decade is going to be the MOST cringe of all. People are going to look back years later and DESPISE who they were, mark my words. People just have to realize that there's shit people in EVERY demographic. Wake up!

I'm so glad you guys brought all this up because I was always into true crime stories but some of them I just based it on oh Susan Smith was a horrible person and she seemed like she was really upset about her kids until you look at the evidence and find out she drove her kids into the water. but why did her defense attorneys present the pictures of all her injuries and talk about how close she was to death to me superficial is when you go to the doctor and they just put a Band-Aid on it if they had to do surgery to repair her neck that's serious

Ok a few things here. That deep bruising on her arm can be caused by the actual knife wound. When someone goes through surgery, sometimes their entire leg or arm is bruised. The best example I can give is from knee surgery. But some people don't bruise at all, hence myself after after having a full knee replacement, but my whole arm was bruised from someone trying to draw blood from me. That large bruise on her arm wasn't caused by someone holding her down, it was most likely caused by the knife wound. MOTIVE MOTIVE MOTIVE...What would the motive be for someone to brutally murder two little boys, but not make sure the mother was murdered. That underwear theory is so bogus.
