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.

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.
This is total BS. There was no DNA. Lexi was not raped. The girl that was with Cory had not changed her story. U must be the girl she was sleeping with in FCJ. Don't believe all that u hear especially from the source u have encountered.

I believe she is innocent. To. I saw her everyday with the kids at Mcdonalds. She would carry the boy around so he would behave. Never saw her hit or be mean to them.that beautiful little girl was so sweet. Why she hasn't told the truth is beyond me, but I think she's innocent. I may be wrong though.
Just to let u know, u r mistaken. I never seen her harm any of her children do whatever happened that night is beyond me. Y she did it is also beyond me. But, as we all know now, she did murder her daughter. RIP Lexi.

she did tell the truth the first thing she told the police was he did it and everything that happened but the cops of west Frankfort, the same cops who certain people have pictures of them smoking dope with drug dealers who go and get drunk and hit on under age girls. so they kept drilling her for 10 more hours and slammed their gun on the table in front of her and intimidated her telling her it wasn't the truth. well fyi this certain guy was drunk about a month ago and admitted on a phone camera he c was there when Alexis died hum sorry Franklin county Mary is innocent this man admitted he did it on video.
Wow! U sure do have a lot of facts. NOT!!!!

Whether she did it or not she is just as guilty for allowing someone to harm her child! They would have to kill ME first, plus she lied and either put her baby in a crawl space or allowed it! GUILTY!!

This is soo very sad ....I do agree she knew what had happen!.. Therefore she's involved this is something Mary is going to have to live with for the rest of her life....I know Mary very sweet girl ...I believe that she didn't kill that baby I never could believe that... What I can say is that piece of sh!t should be beat to death! No, a slow painful death that would be the best route! I'm glad I don't know this murderers name!..
Murders Name: Mary Zumwalt Joplin

So let me get this straight. Jennifer is with Scotty turner, whose mother was recently murdered ( which by no means is his fault) and Jennifer's sister Mary murdered her child. So 2 S. Illinois murders, and Jennifer has links to both of them? That girl is shit and always has been, so when you run with shit it tends to get on you! Therefore, my advice is stay the hell away from Jennifer and her family! They'll get what they deserve, skanky fuc*ks!!
get the facts straight

First of Mary never had coy his grandparents raised him she hardly ever seen him 2nd who in the hell would even be bringing a recently paroled criminal Ud been talkn to for 3 short weeks into Ur home when u have two beautiful little girl whom u are suppose to be protecting..3rdly this guy is not the only one she accused they're were at least 2 others she said and lastly no one will ever know what truly happened but if Mary is to blame as well no matter what she had random guys in and out of them poor little girls life living place to place and it is her fault no matter who done it to this poor little sweet baby girl as a mother u protect Ur children...and Mary has failed them time after time she deserves whatever she goes thru and my opinion is Mary drowned her because Lexi and Mary had already been fighting while leaving the babysitters bout her Havn to get her hair washed that night my opinion is Thats where Mary drowned her and then stuffed her into a crawl space and reported her daughter missing in my opinoi all evidence points to her *rant over*

First of all Jennifer and John are still together so go tell you magical unicorn that you want it to come back home because you are delusional. Jennifer is not with scotty turner her and Jon don't even live around southern Illinois anymore. So the next time you decide to let puke come out your mouth know what you are saying. Oh and just to let you know Lexi already talked to her grandma and told her she was taking out her hair when she was talking to her. So you can stop the hypothetical bull*hit and know the facts before you decide to make up your own stories.
