I visited cathy henderson several times in prison. She was very sorrow and depressed of what had happened and showed sincere regret. I learned her to know as a woman found of children, She has three herself. So what is the motive of killing three month old Brandon. No, I do not at all think it was an intentional act. May be it was an accindet. Bay be she did it in an fit of rage? In that case it was not murder with intent. And she should not had the death penalty.

According to police reports, Henderson gave several accounts of what happened, including an admission she kidnapped the child to sell.
What is known for certain is that the story that she dropped the child is not true, the medical examiner confirmed that the injuries came from a deliberate blow.
The kidnapping story has a certain validity since the childs body was found in Temple, Texas about 65 miles from the family home in Pflugerville.
What is absolutely certain is that the execution of an American female murderer will generate the predictable European indignation.

Let me correct the above post. The medical examiner confirmed the injuries "were not consistent with a fall from the babysitter's arms" as Cathy Henderson had claimed. Draw you own conclusions as to how they occured while a non-mobile infant was in her care.

I am one of Cathy's best friends from many years ago & I do not believe in any way she purposely killed Brandon. He fell & as a preemie could not be revived, although court records show she did try! Let Cathy answer to GOd, not the state of Texas. ABOLISH THE DEATH PENELTY IN THE USA. Ghandi said "An eye for an eye for an eye, makes the whole world blind."

I can see how friends long to support eachother but sometimes frindship can make us see what really is not there. I do agree that she should answer to God and that he should be the one to judge when that time will come. But those who were hurt by this event deserve peace of mind and a settleing of the heart. They deserve to see what our country promises, justice. The death penalty is not right and should not be used but some justice must be done. "if one is never taught that they have done wrong then they can never establish what is right." May God be with all those involved.

The Medical examiner lied. It is Bio 101 taught in Middle School, High School and College. Babies have A soft top of thier heads. Guess what, very few jurors who have the real ability to sort out facts are allowed on a jury here. Google Philip Brasfield Touchstone Cathy Henderson for an article on the facts. The is also a site you can find with "Save Cathy Henderson" using the same method. When I investigated the case I became a friend and supporter of Cathy. I think many people who hold the Founders of the Formerly Free Republic in high regard would agree with my findings.

Problem is the USA was founded by Freeman who signed the Declaration of Independence pledging thier lives,
property and sacred honor. I suggest you further investigate the case. Believing anything your told
is what ideal comrades did in the former Soviet Union. It is also a Soviet given that men and women are the same and interchangeble

This is TEXAS, your often guilty until proven innocent here. The proof requires $$$$$ in serious cases. So panicking is not a surprise when decades behind bars is a a distinct possibility even for accidents. Don't expect a fair trial.

I didn't find any "facts" in the article I read by Philip Brasfield. I read a history of her childhood, but bhere are thousands of women whose story echo Cathy's, with the exception of one critical detail: They haven't turned their rage about past injustices they endured against an innocent and defenseless 3-month-old baby. I was raped, beaten and threatened with death on a weekly basis by my biological father for nearly 2 decades and never once have I come close to hurting an innocent child myself. Cathy was the adult in charge of a baby and it was her responsibility to keep that child safe. She failed and she will pay the consequences.

You have not read the Brasfield article. Why don't you go to the Save Cathy Henderson website. Easy to find via google or dogpile.com You are not able to argue the facts.

It seems that Mr. Gregor has formed an opinion based on what was published after the trial only. If you want to beleive she is innocent, take into account all the details. I am a mother of four children. Two were in her care just six months prior to this "accident". After several issues with "accidents" that seemed to happen to my 11 mo. old son, my other son (6 years old)told me a horrifying story of abuse that he had suffered on numerous occasions. This was not coaxed out of him. He just began telling me about his day, not even realizing that the things she did were wrong. Needless to say, I removed the boys immediately and reported her to DHS. They did nothing. Although the Baugh family lived just down the street from me, I didn't know them. I wish I could have told them not to put their children in her care! Cathy comes off as the perfectly loving babysitter that anyone could trust. However, from my own experiences, she would snap and lose control. These snaps were always explained as accidents the children had. I truly feel for her and her family, but that does not excuse her actions. A bad childhood does not make it ok to murder someones baby! I expect over half of the people in prisons can attest to bad childhoods. Should we let them go too??? During the trial many other issues came up that showed a past history of at least questionable events. She did not even have a relationship with the first Daughter, did not have custody of the second daughter, and by my own sight would physically punish the third. It is not my place to judge her. God will do that. But, before you go feeling sorry for her because someone decided to write a bleeding heart article on her behalf, you should do more research. We want to beleive that a person could not be that horrible. The truth is, some are.

Anyone interested in the facts needs to google or dogpile.com , the Save Cathy Henderson website.
There are many articles and FAQ's answered about Cathy Henderson's life and family before, during and after the accident. Her daughter's are taking Cathy Henderson's suffering and pending execution very hard.
There had been an extreme amount of pre-trial publicity and awful smear campaigns against Cathy Henderson; Amounting to a modern lynch mob and witch hunt.
