I was in jail with her for ten days and she asked me to give the little girls social number to the dad cause they wanted to make she they got the tax money that yr for her, its so sad that thats what was on her mind... I dont know if she was the one that actually did it cause i wasent there but I do believe she had sumthing to do with it or knew what was going on... You would have to kill me before anyone every touched or hurt one of my children... I hope she gets what she deserves, and when it goes to trail I hope they dont give her the news attention that she wants and likes...(yes I told the ppl at the jail about this)

Thank you outsider. They are making me sound like a monster saying I made her take Coy. Should a mother have to be made to spend time with HER child. I have nothing bad to say about anyone. I am sorry this is causing so much hatred for others. I am the one that goes to every court hearing. I have seen all video statements.Things just get so messed up with rumors. If there was DNA from any other source use common sense. Someone else would be in jail. There will be JUSTICE for Lexi one day !!!
guess I hit a nerve with someone my posts are missing lol I agree with you whole heartedly

You are the reason so many ignorant, fictitious rumors get started! You have no truth or facts to back up what you are spewing from your mouth!! Did you watch her video confessions??? Did you read any documents related to the case??? Where did you get your information???
Please...let me be clear when I say this for all who question what is going because of dumb people who have no idea what they are talking about.
There was NO DNA!!!
There was NO RAPE!!!
And the first person she blamed was her sister...NO MAN!!
And its all on video! Her words, her lies, her confession!! She will go to prison and she will go to hell! And before you spread lies and rumors you should go to court and find out the truth for yourself. They are public hearings!!!

first of all do you know the facts of the case do you know they found male DNA inside of this little girl do you know she was found
out to be raped that night she was murdered supposedly by Mary. I think not. there is a lot this guy's alibi 's that are coming out not to be true. the one person who gave this man an alibi changed her statement and told the police she took up for him and she lied the first time. so with all this said I believe she's innocent.

I <3 stupid people. Lol. I honestly try not to stoop to the ignorant bliss you people live in but come on. You can't complete a sentence and your talking about someone else's education completion?! Again, another obviously miserable person with nothing better to do. Save your rumors,lies, and completely worthless opinions to yourself. Sincerely, Darlena's college educated, middle class, and awesome daughter(not Bobbie;) xoxo

You are funny wow because you are talking like you were there in fact maybe you were. And as for Tabitha she lived with her for a while and Mary knew it wasn't good for her kids so she moved. So Tabitha a friend I think not. And for the grandma and grandpa having her kids all the time I think not Darla is nothing but a pos look where all her kids that she raised are either in prison or not possessed a second grade.edu cation and the only reason Bobby jo is where she is. Is nd her dad raised her and she got away from her pos mom darlena. And even when dcfs was involved b4 Darlene would have Mary take coy everyday want pictures they will soon b on Facebook. And as for rape of alexus why do you think she has sat in county for so long waiting on DNA for then to test sperm that was found in Alexis after her bath that night so , people you need to not listen to gossip and see the truth sold proof that can be proven on paper.

that's funny Ashley but this isn't Jennifer its your old friend that supposedly ran u over with the car but come to find out it wasn't me. fraud babycakes working for the gaskins while drawing unemployment and getting public aid I believe scotty and you both went to work for cash and didn't report it oh well some people already did. haha. I believe u ride around all fucked up on drugs and smoke dope while ur kids r n the back seat. oh that's right the video is posted on youtube for everyone to see and how scotty rides around with his tampon straw and snorts shit all through the day. also on youtube. don't worry police have seen it too. Jennifer just got her settlement from the place she worked before so I think they r doing very well right now but thanks for caring and as for her kids she sees all of them all the time.
