More “drama” after fundraiser started for Texas woman who killed husband for beating the family cat — 13 Comments

  1. after reading some of the comments on the GFM this case may attract a lawyer looking to make statement about domestic and animal abuse. This is of course if her story stands up under scrutiny.

  2. BTW i would not donate to any gofundme unless there were a lawyers office that could confirm they were representing her.

    • The rise in online funding is causing consternation because you can lose money quite easily. I thinking more of backing a new product. Millions can be lost in fact.

      As to personal online funding I don’t always trust them. I feel that there are some scammers taking advantage of decent people and pocketing their money for less than honest reasons.

      • people now start a gofundme every time they have a bill due. Since the person running this has not direct ties it should be shut down.

  3. The last thing this woman needs is a scammer. The text with the appeal doesn’t strike me as embellished as some scams are. I think it is someone who genuinely wants to help Mary, but is open about how new they are to the phenomenon.

    I hope Smokie’s future finds him somewhere safe to be cared for, where he can start some kind of recovery from such horrific trauma.

    Mary needs a lawyer who is seriously experienced in DV cases.

  4. I will simply say that she may deny violence and abuse, but it is likely that emotional abuse has been the norm in their household for many years. It is likely that the animals have been abused before. She and her son need a skilled lawyer and therapist to uncover the truth.

    The flip side is that she beat the cat herself and made it all up so she could kill him.

    Everyone has their breaking point. She may have put up with emotional abuse for years, but hurting her cat sent her over the edge.

    This will be a long trial.

    • If it’s true she chased him from room to room shooting I’d bet a few dollars there was some built up rage from emotional , physical and abuse to her pets over a period of time. She indeed needs a good lawyer although I am a proponent of the truth. If she shot him for any other reason that abuse going on at that moment in time she needs to go to prison for a long time.
      It’s also worthy to note that most abused women know that a restraining order is just a note to the jury of who murdered the victim listed on that piece of paper. Domestic abuse is often hard to prove unless there are witnesses , physical injury or dead bodies.
