Some updates

First, we’ve updated my Chalabre website with new photos including some new shots of Shmoo, the Spear of Destiny, our booksigning on Friday and some other miscellaneous shots.  I need to take some pictures of the newly renovated attic and will try to get to that later this week.

The big update is on the Whack-a-Mom story. Today’s Depeche had an interview with the brother of the murderer. It turns out that she was not only super-religious, but obsessed with witchcraft and satanism. Talk about a trifecta! To top it all off she had a history of mental illness and the poor mother had said that her mental condition had been deteriorating of late. So, I’m guessing that although this was perhaps a bit over the top, the mental breakdown was not a totally unexpected occurrence for other family members.

So far autopsy results have not been released to the public, but since the funeral were today, I suppose it is understandable that the authorities might have wanted to wait a bit before doing that.

My friend Cheryl from Oklahoma is coming to visit us in May and we plan on taking her to Lourdes. I hope none of us decide to bludgeon each other while we’re there…

Ciao for now.

  1. Maybe my first comment did not go through.

    I would very much like to know the cause of the daughter’s death. Very interesting, albeit morbid, case though.

  2. Hi Gene! So far the newspaper hasn’t printed a report about cause of death; whether that’s because of a request by the family or not, I don’t know. We’re keeping our eyes out for it though!

    I’ve been thinking about you and meaning to drop you a note to say hi and get your news.

  3. Sorry about the double post. I though the first one didn’t go through. It sure is very mysterious. I have read that suspects held under French custody tend to die under strange circumstances.
    Thanks for keeping in touch.

  4. I don’t think it’s more frequent in France than anywhere else, Gene; certainly not more than in the States.

    And, she wasn’t actually in police custody; she was in a hospital.
