40 years of faulty wiring

Malicious, Murderous, Macabre Mothers

Speaking of weird mothers, the following women sacrificed their children for bizarre reasons. It’s not just their crimes that baffle; it’s their minds. Criminal profiling is forensic psychoanalysis performed before and after the murderer is caught. Criminal profiling illustrates a personality type based on:

  1.  time of day of the crime
  2. type of weapon used
  3. whether it was high risk
  4. how it was accomplished
  5. possible fantasizing or mental illness
  6. motivation
  7. education, work, age and race

JonBenet Ramsey’s Killer. Profiling JonBenet Ramsey’s Killer

      1. Entered the victim’s house and knew it’s layout
      2. Remained to write a staged 3-page ransom note (the child was dead)
      3. Hid the body in an obscure roo Local police believed mother, Patricia Ramsey, killed JonBenet in a fit of rage. Handwriting experts determined “the author of the note could be Patricia Ramsey.” I don’t believe Patricia was guilty. Patricia Ramsey died in 2006 of ovarian cancer without knowing the identity of her child’s killer.

Diane Downs A mother who shot her 3 children was Diane Downs. Downs shot her children, killing 1, on Old Mohawk Road in  Springfield, Oregon, Thursday, May 19, 1983. She claimed a bushy-haired stranger stopped her, demanded her car, then shot her children. Downs’ crime scene:

        1. late at night on a remote road
        2. a gun
        3. high risk for perpetrator accusation
        4. narcissistic sociopath – believes she is superior to others; attention-seeking (Downs gave interviews to several news stations during the investigation); unhappy childhood (Downs was an incest victim)

Susan Smith  –  Another mother who killed her children to catch herself a man….what is it with murderous women anyway? Smith rolled her car into a lake with her two babies in the back seat then claimed a (what else) black man stole her car with her children in it.   Smith’s murder scene:

  1. middle of the day – strange time for a hijack
  2. weapon was her car
  3. high risk for her her story made no sense
  4. drowning- a female murder– the womblike enclosure of the car and the lake water 
  5. Mental Health – Smith was emotionally wounded, exually abused during childhood, and suicidal.

The trial is ongoing.  **update** Anthony was found not guilty.

  1. IMO Casey did for a guy also. Her boyfriend at the time…Tony Lazzaro….stated he really didn’t want any children and if he had any he wanted boys….so that could have been part of her reason for murder.
