The story has so many holes in it, Michelle claimed to have cared so much for Devin but whether or not she was the one who slit her throat or not, I dont think she should get the death penalty.. I believe she should rot in prison the rest of her life thinking about how she took her own lovers life and didnt show any remorse for doing so. As for her husband, He is just as guilty as she was but I think Michelle just had such a hold on him he would have done anything to make sure it was him and her only. He was minipulated by the person he thought loved him too... Michelle just used him.

If Michelle loved Devon then why didn't she stop the murder from happening? Why didn't she tell Brandon to stop doing it or why didn't Brandon tell her to stop doing it depending on whose side you're on?

Records Spec, "critirium" is not a word. A criterium is a bicycle race. The word you are looking for is criterion, but that's actually singular, so you should use the plural criteria. Using big words doesn't make you seem smart, especially when you choose the wrong word entirely and then misspell it.

I seen the story aired on television one night and listened closely and followed everything what was said during the story and the court case. I think you have to look at the evidence of the bite mark on brandon's arm and how the time's link him to the crime. As for michelle being linked to the murder, I feel the only thing she did was that she was a friend and a lover of devon's and would have no reason to murder her. I feel all the evidence needs to be reviewed and the case be brought back to trial. I feel michelle is wrongly accused.

It's more likely that Brian was murderer. His chlose was found in trunk of Mitchel's car and it was full of Devons blood. She had blood only on her jeans. Case is kind of wierd, but as I understand, they killed her in yard with glowes sp they won't leave fingerprints. In glowes, they sat in their cars. One of them ( probably Brian) darove Devon's car to deserted loat, and Mitchele was driving their car after it. They staged a scene and put glowes and Brian bloody chlose in trash bag and then in trunk of Mitchele's car, planing to dispose of it later.

I read the book, "Lipstick and Blood". I re-read and made some shocking notes while I turned the pages back and forth. Here are revelant notes I wrote down:
Joseph Welsh, a neighbor who lived across the street from Bloss/Hetzel residence, testified that he saw Devon getting in the car (after arguments with Brandon) at 12:45 AM. There were a passenger in her car. The passenger definately was not Keary Renner.
Keary Renner wrote her journals (to her husband) at 12:45 AM. She was at home at that time. If time was accurate, there was no way Keary could be the passenger waiting in Devon's car at the identical time witnessed by Joseph Welsh.
Thus, who really was the passenger in Devon's car at the time of 12:45 AM? Brandon had been at his doorstep by his house. Where was Michelle at that point? Was she inside the house or inside Devon's car waiting for Devon to pull away and going somewhere else?
Michelle claimed she paged Keary at 12:45 AM (along with other pages, too but this one was essential point because of the time that made the connections). Where did Michelle page Keary from? Inaide her house or inside Devon's car? That would be very interesting because obviously Keary Renner did not murder Ms Guzman even though she physically was extremely violent with her at least one hour earlier at Mineral Springs place.
Also evidently, Brandon could not have commit the murder even though he played some roles in it by concealing the crime scenes by "cleaning up" for sake of his "pregnant wife" (Michelle was not pregnant at all; she lied about that to woo Brandon into a mess)
That left WHO KILLED DEVON!!!???? MICHELLE !!!
If Michelle was in fact inside Devon's car at 12:45 AM (remember, she paged Keary to deceive her), then she led Devon to some place to kill her. Michelle called Brandon to come down to carry the bloody body back to their house. From that point on, who knew exactly what poor Brandon had to do even though he may wanted no part of murder his wife performed.
But there were some problems. How did bite mark from Devon end up on Brandon's arm? Did she bite him on the evening of the murder? Could the bite mark occur on other days other than June 14, 2000?
Where did that biting take place? At Brandon's house or at some park where Brandon, Michelle, and Devon got into heated arguments? That's something the detectives neglected to look into that.
To sum it all, it was real unfortuate that Brandon had to be sent to prison for his involvement with wicked wife of his. Michelle lied to her husband on numerous occassions including up to pregnancy that did not exist at all. MICHELLE WAS, IS, AND WILL ALWAYS BE A MURDERER. MAY HER SOUL ROT IN "HELL". Not so sure about Brandon. He certainly will have to carry black mark on his soul for getting involved with stupid, bitchy wife against his will.
Good day to you.
Please, they are both guilty as sin!!!!

I feel so sorry for the parents who refuse to believe their child is capable of committing horrific crimes.

As a retired Deputy Sheriff, I saw this so many times. The evidence can be right before their very eyes and they are blind to it.

Reading a book about a crime is a far cry from all the testimony and evidence presented in court.

There are no winners in this. This should be a cautionary tale for everyone about watching red flags and being honest with oneself.

Brandon probably held Devon (hence the bite mark), as his WIFE slit Devon's throat to her spine. Seems like this murder would have to be a tag team to make a cut so deep. However it went down, they BOTH are GUILTY, disgusting people! I can't believe some people feel sorry for this loser Brandon! Idiots!

lynn, would you be willing to discuss exactly what you mean about not adding up? what she has told you? is it something that could possibly help poor Brandon at LEAST get an APPEAL? he is on his LAST shot! Never had a chance at life becauise of her! and could be someone likeYOU that could change that!

He's serving life. They should consider his appeal. He has rights. I think he was foolish in love helped out after the fact but is guilty by association. But I wasn't there so who knows. Point is he has rights. Please consider his appeal.
