    i hope she died a horribe death

  • Tom says:

    She lives in Fairwood Oaks, CA under Mary Martinez. She & her husband run a so-called non profit group called “Gold Country for the Troops”‘and even host events in their home (the address is easy to find online). What a wretched, worthless POS.

  • Elizabeth Bowlin says:

    I believe you mean Fair Oaks, CA and not Fairwood. I think it is amazing that she did such a small amount of time in prison for her part in the murders of so many. Especially given the fact she was the one in most, if not all the cases to lure the victims to what became their death. God bless the victims and those who loved them.

  • Patti says:

    If you look at this case a little critically, I think you can see how she was the brains of the operation. I suspect that she was equally, if not more culpable. Ah, the beauty of a high IQ!
    Surprising that they elected to allow her to receive a light sentence.

  • Alvie says:

    One of the victims was my baby sister. I read a book that said she was made to lure them by her husband, and that she didn’t have any part in the killings.
    But now I read some of these comments and it makes me wonder. I hope people don’t get on here just to make up stories. I was shocked to hear the comments about her.
    I have forgiven both of them for what they did. There is no way I would let hate take over, if you have to forgive and move on.
    Today is her birthday and I thought of how she died.. and so I googled it and found this site.

    I read the book on these nasty disgusting filthy i hope he burning in hell forever with gasolinene and that filthy dirty perverted nasty whore should be there also they both should had die in the electric chair that pig as well or rot in jail and his and her private sic.body parts they use should of been razor cut in a woodchippwer.

  • I am 61 years old and was destined to become a serial killer , I was unwanted ( my mother always told me I was an illigitimate bastard she should have aborted before she could give birth to me but my real father who never acknowledged me told her he would expose her if she aborted me ) and abused emotionally and physically by my half-brothers and sister from my toddler years until I was a teenager old enough to fight back and at the age of 12 I was sexually abused by an 18 year old pedophile in boarding school! When I left the maternal house at the age of 19 I even tortured animals but luckily didn’t kill them ! Well , thanks to an artist who was a couple of years older than me I learned what love , compassion , remorse and empathy are ! That man taught me that theRE ARE beautiful things like music , art , comics , movies and to top it all he teached me to eat a plant-based or vegan diet , since then I haven’t hurt an animal nor a human being and I don’t even eat anything that involves an animal to get hurt ( like all the cows , piggies , chickens , sheep and even fish who are raised in inhumane conditions worse that the concentration camps from WW 2 ! I am much more healthy now and those people like my half sister and brothers who tortured me as a child are sick now and I feel like a 20 year old ! And I am sure that if children are raised to respect all life , human and animal they won’t become as depraved as Charlene and Gerald Gallego , for instance , both my children who are 27 and 30 years old are vegetarians and are lovely people who wouldn’t hurt a fly and that’s also a bit because I teached them to feel empathy towards all earthlings , human and animal ! Love conquers evil !
