Melissa Huckaby Sentenced ~ Life in Prison, NO Parole
Quick change of subject.... I'm sure, if you've followed the case, you know what Melissa looked like when she was boohooing at one of the first hearings before the gag order went into place. Yep, there she is over on the left. I was shocked to see her in the live video that one of the local stations streamed this morning. When I first saw her, I hardly recognized her. The picture on the right is her this morning. Either she's been eating very well in jail or the meds that she's supposedly on now are making her obese.
As I sat here listening to Melissa "apologize" for what she did I became disgusted with her. According to her, she doesn't know why she did what she did. I think she needs to figure that part out. But then she's got the rest of her life, in prison to do that, I guess. The part that really got me was when she apologized to Sandra's mother and had the nerve to say that Sandra didn't suffer and that she didn't sexually molest the little girl. Sandra didn't suffer? I guess she thinks that the little girl didn't suffer because she drugged her with a generic Xanax tranquilizer! She didn't molest the girl? Wait a minute. The reason the gag order was put on everyone and the reason for the seals on all the documents was because the details of the molestation were too "inflammatory"! The documents have been unsealed now. The evidence is out there in the news now. A torn piece of cloth tied around Sandra's head, a noose. Lacerations on Sandra's mouth. Lacerations on Sandra's genitals that match the handle of a rolling pin that was found at the church where Melissa taught Sunday School. A rolling pin that still had blood smears on it! I can't say anymore. The information is in the links below or in the articles written by other news organizations. Google will bring lots of links...
Melissa "apologized". Yeah. Right. Melissa cried. For herself.
Rest in peace, Sandra. Your murderer will die in prison. My heart goes out to Sandra's family. The horror of what happened to their precious daughter is out there in the public eye. But the public eye will move on to the next sensational case and they will hopefully be able to live a relatively "normal" life. Unfortunately, a life without a beautiful little girl named Sandra. I hope they will be able to find some peace of mind now that Melissa will be locked away and never be allowed to harm another person.
