What happened to good lawyers? How can you turn in your own client? Did you even attempt to help him? Please let me say that I deeply apologize to the Edward's family. My daughter's father is innocent. I pray that God will shed some light on the guilty party. If you would please write Sammie if you have any information that could assist him. Sammie Denson 81932, 3-A-2-11,6000,Sterling, CO 80751.Please help Sammie come home to his family.

That's right! Call it like I see it. He said he was not in the home when the murder took place. He also stated witnesses wrote statements providing his whereabouts. He goes on to say he left the home around 11pm and did not return. The shooting happened close to 2am. The children did not see him in the house but stated a lady name Gwen and Kenny was in the home and all three were arguing. Sammie did not have gunshot residue nor blood splatter on his body at all. His lawyer did not help him one bit. Again, I give my deepest sympathy to the Edward's family but, I honestly believe Sammie was not represented to the fullest extent of the law.

About 12:30 am, Pam and Gwen were downstairs with Kenny, a friend, who came over
to talk. Gwen went upstairs to take a phone call. Jameal must have been peeking in the
window. He busted in. Gwen heard Pam saying ďNo, no...we was just playing around.Ē
Pamís daughter saw her mom trying to run up the stairs and heard Jameal saying ďWhy
are you trying to run, Iím going to get you ... Iím going to kill you.Ē Gwen saw Jameal
holding Pam against the wall and then heard five gunshots. Gwen called the police and
hid in the bedroom. Pamís daughters saw Jameal run out the door. Both of Pamís
daughters ran to her aid. Jameal came back in the house, went in the bedroom and
changed clothes. He said goodbye to their mom, jumped the fence and left.
Officers had a foot pursuit with the suspect. They told him if he moved he was dead and
he took off on foot.
Later that night, he called his trainer, Mr. Caro, saying he was going to kill himself. He
would not tell Mr. Caro the nature of the emergency. Mr. Caro, though cautious about
his own safety, met Jameal at Dennyís. Jameal showed him the handgun. Mr. Caro
convinced Jameal to call his coach Mr. Woods. Mr. Woods met them at the Loaf and Jug;
both men were concerned about their own safety as well as bystanders. Jameal was very
nervous and irrational Ė they knew he was in shock or high. That night Jameal stated,ďI
saw her with another man and I went crazy and shot Ďem both. I messed up my life and
Iím going to blow my head off.Ē Jameal told them that he wanted to go to California to
see his child and then kill himself. Mr. Woods convinced Jameal that he should call 9-1-
1 to report the incident in case she was still alive. An officer coincidentally at the store
noticed Jamealís nervousness and eventually apprehended him.
In custody, Jameal stated that he was high on crack he had bought from Kenny earlier
that night. He declined to make any additional statements. He received a life sentence
plus 24 years for first-degree murder.

Tenayia, Iím sorry you feel that way. Again, I deeply apologize to you and your family. I asked the Lord to forgive me if I wronged you, and your family by bringing this dreadful memory alive. In my heart, I believe in Sammie, and I believe him when he says he did not murder respectfully, your mother. But, there are too many questions left unanswered like:
1. The time of the incident was about 12:30. Another report says about or near 2am.
2. Gwen made a phone call or answered a call. That would help calculate the exact time of death. The coroner report and her phone call should coincide around 2am.
3. Children stated they heard respectfully, Pam, Gwen and Kenny arguing, but did not see or hear Sammie?
4. Why did the ladies have trust issues?
5. Neighbors stated they heard loud arguing around twelve or so, then it calmed down until the incident occurred.
6. Sammie was paged to come home to a disagreement between respectfully, Pam and Gwen. The argument was over the fact that Gwen gave Sammie one of her rings. Iím not sure why, but she did. Respectfully, Pam, was so upset she asked Gwen to leave her home. Because it was cold outside, Sammie stated he would leave. He asked that Gwen not be put out with the baby because it was cold and snowing. Sammie leaves the home around 11pm and did not return. Statements were written as of his where about. It was overlooked during trial.
7. It says he came back into the house, and changed clothes. Were the clothes used during trial?
8. Another version says a .380 was used; stated he cocked the gun to be sure there was a live round in the chamber. If the gun holds six rounds, where did the extra bullet come from? Couldnít that bullet be used in trail also? Tested for finger prints?
9. Sammie did not have any gunshot residue to prove he actually fired a gun.
10. If Gwen saw him shoot respectfully, your mom, why when he was arrested he did not have ruminates of blood on him?
11. It doesnít sound like he changed shoes, and maybe he was arrested with the shoes he had on. I just canít believe blood wasnít found on him.
12. If he showed Mr. Caro the, did Mr. Caro testify about the gun?
13. Did anyone question Gwen? Did anyone asked about the argument that disturbed the neighbors?
14. Did anyone take a polygraph to see if the truth was actually being told?
15. Iím not pointing the finger at anyone, but I felt like Gwen should have been questioned.
16. Lastly, no one knows what they would or would not do in that situation. But, why would one hide in a room, and leave children with a gunman. I believe most people would stay, and protect the children whether it cost them their life or not. Iím just saying.

Again, I extend my deepest condolences to you, Tenayia, and your family. Sammie is our family, and we love him without measure. We want the truth to be told, and we want desperately for him to come home.

Well the truth is he was sleeping with my mom's friend Gwen and He was using crack he often beat her so bad he broke her bones. The night my mom was murdered she asked Gwen to leave her house as well. We heard Gwen telling my mother she hasn't slept with him and my mom was telling her just get her things and go. I saw sammie bust into our home I heard sammie shoot kenny who was Gwens boyfriend.Gwen knew he was coming that night because she spoke to him. Sammie was the person she had the conversation over the phone with. She told me everything as well. In 93 they were not testing for gun residue they didn't even have cell phone. She paged him and when he called back she told him Pam was all over her man kenny she never thought he would show up with a Gun. You guys have been for screaming Free this man since he's been in there. Sorry but he's not going any where he killed her and I wish he was you and never even met my mother and maybe your children are we having this discussion with someone about you.

My mom was betrayed not only by someone she loved but her friend as well. The police needed her testimony to get the person who killed my mother. Having an affair is not a crime. After he shot them Gwen went in kenny pocket and took money because she had none and no where to go.

I don't feel sorry for him not one bit. She would fight with people for selling him crack. She loved him and even after he beat her so bad she would blame herself. I witnessed all of this and although people change the law stays the same. His lawyer would have never won this case because he is guilty.

And with all due respect it is very sad that he allows his family to believe that he's in there because he was done unjust. Instead of telling them I made a mistake and I apologize for it and take his sentence like a man.

Unlike your" babydaddy" Gwen told her truth she said that she was mad because Kenny had been flirting with my mother. My mother told kenny she had to go kenny always joked around alot and that night he told Gwen he wanted my mom. kenny said himself they were just playing when she grabbed the phone and went upstairs. He obviously trying to put this on her but only one to pull the trigger was him.

As much as those words hurt, I would never ever wish that someone would take your life. I apologize to you and your family again.

Again, I'm sorry you feel that way. I'm sorry you witness what ever it was you witnessed. I will continue to help Sammie come home though. If, the Lord, sees that he is free of guilt then he will be the judge of all things. Lord, please help us all during this time. I never wanted to bring any memories back to you all. I posted, because I wanted to see if someone would come forth with additional information that is all. I can't bring your mother back, and for that I deeply apologize. All I can do is ask you to forgive me for hurting you by bringing those memories to the surface again. I will not add another post after tonight ,because of the pain I'm sure to be causing you and your family. But, I will continue to assist him in trying to leave Colorado to come home to his family. I pray you find it in your heart to forgive me.

Tenaya, I know I said I would not post anything else. But, I could not sleep last night. Can I ask a question. When he ran back in the house, did he at least apologize to you and your sister. Did he say he was sorry?

No, he was crying over my mother, he kissed her and ran away so fast his eyes looked really big. I wrote to him and told him I forgive him and I had no hate for him but he was only interested in getting out of jail.
