This is so weird!

When I was in Texas this last time, we were too busy to turn on the tv and we just didn't listen to the radio. It just wasn't the time. Somebody told me, and I can't remember who now, that Nancy Grace had commited suicide. You know, Nancy Grace, big hair, lots of makeup on Court TV or Fox or one of those very loud stations.

So the story I heard was that her toddler had gone missing in the woods and she had failed a lie detector test and killed herself.

Seriously. I thought she was dead.

In a time when my own life was too sorrowful and stressful, here I had Nancy Grace, whom I don't even like, sitting around the sidelines of my brain yelling how awful this world is sometimes. I felt true grief for what had happened to this woman and baby.

So, I didn't think anything of not hearing more about it because like I said, we were just in a different place.

So last night, I'm flippin through the channels and I saw Nancy Grace's show on so I clicked on it to see what they were doing to carry on the show. Well, they weren't doing anything different because there she was badgering a death penalty opponent over the execution in Florida last night. She's very much not dead!

What the hell? Was that just some crazy rumor?

It was a rumour.
But the reality is that her fiance was murdered many years ago.
Very sad story.

I think they had the stories mixed up.

She badgered a woman who's toddler (Trenton Duckett was his name I think) had disappeared and that mother committed suicide. The child has not yet been found.

Okay. Now that would make sense. I just couldn't figure out where some crazy story like that would come from in the first place.

Did she think this woman had something to do with it? Why would you hound a person who lost their child? WTF?
And then the woman killed herself? OMG!

Here's a snopes article on Trenton.

And a youtube video where Nancy Grace defends herself against allegations she contributed to Melinda Duckett's suicide.

That is one woman who gets on my last nerve. Sometimes, if dh and I want to annoy each other...we watch her show. : :


That is very sad about that mom and her child.
