    Mia...Lol...I agree...the spelling of her name annoys* me, too!

    Flourish....thanks for the photo...it's quite telling, isn't it?? " I've just been sentenced to life in the clink....here...kiss me goodbye on my ear, baby (as I pull away from you!)."

    *To be quite honest, I have to admit that just about everything about this woman annoys me!

    IIRC, she was jailed because she was subpoenaed to testify at Mechele's trial but skipped the country instead. The sister did testify at Carlin's trial, though, and her testimony there didn't speak well of her sister. I think there is video somewhere...I'll see if I can find it.

    It's nice to have more people around here

    Thanks for looking for thank Flourish. I haven't seen anything else on this except the 48 Hours episode but I was fascinated from the get-go. I'm surprised no one has written a book on this (or have they?). Anyway, I didn't know anything about the sister/computer info but what has been written here, so that's news to me. More nails for her coffin if you ask me.

    If you haven't already, watch the video of the verdict...it's even more telling, IMO.

Give me a break! Also I agree with the rest of you re her voice - little girlish in an extremely fake way and 'poor me' sounding. In addition I do not think this is a smart woman we are talking about. Anyone who takes out a life insurance policy worth a million dollars on someone else and then murders/has that person murdered not long after and thinks they're going to get away with it is just not intelligent, I'm sorry. If you leave a letter and e-mail trail behind, even less so.
    Well, her weird name-spelling allowed for the catchy, "Free Me" slogan LOL

    I re-watched the Dateline episode yesterday. The audio of the police questioning her right after the murder and then "breaking the news" that he was dead was something I paid more attention to this time than the first time I watched. I think wearing earphones helped, maybe, but anyway, her baby voice was in full force, and listening to her trying to describe her relationship with Kent is ridiculous. I think she's trying to say that "it was a relationship of convenience because he was gay and didn't want his family to know," but she can't think of the word "convenience," and says "conventional" instead.

    The life insurance policy is weird. Not exactly high on my list of "Thing to Do with My New Fiance" list.

    There's one book, but I hear it's awful. I'm surprised there aren't more and will be even more surprised if there aren't some in the works as we speak. Be sure to check out the Dateline episode, which you can see here:

    msnbc.com Video Player

    I think there is footage of her sister in there. I believe the above video contains footage that wasn't seen on the aired episode. On the site, the video is broken down in several pieces, but they play back-to-back all by themselves. I don't know what the embedded video in this post will do.

    Ok after watching that I still feel 100% that she is guilty but do have a few notes to make. First off she has had some work done. Looks like botox and collagen in the lips. I just could not help but notice how young and fresh faced she looked during her trail. Second I had forgotten that I was initially very suspicious of Scott and now I remember why. I do not think he was looked at hard enough! Third it sure is funny how everyone is trying to make her ut to be litle Suzy homemaker but she took her baby to go have an afair with one of her boyfriends (Scott ) from the time of the murder. Last watching Lora on the stand she looked coked out of her gourd but watching the extra interview footage with her she really seemed to have a very good grip on the kind of person Mechele is!

    Some info on the jail John Carlin was in. As I thought they have only had two murders since they opened, one of them being Mr Carlin.


    In the prison's history, there have been two murders inside the prison, one escape and at least one failed escape plot.

    In 2008, convicted murderer John Carlin III was beaten to death in Spring Creek. Carlin was the alleged co-conspirator in the case of Mechele Linehan, a former stripper convicted in the death of her former fiance Kent Leppink.[2]

    Chances for conviction this time?

    Apparently the appeal relied partly on the use of poor dead Ken Leppink's letter in the first case. The one about Mechele being guilty. Will the second trial go as well without that piece of evidence? Ooohh, this ticks me off. She's already had more freedom than she deserved.

    Even without Kent's letter I can not imagine how in the world any jury would not be able to see that she is as guilty as homemade sin!!!

    Hi Nancy B...Thanks for the info...most of it's news to me...I have to admit I haven't followed Mechele's story too much. I was surprised to hear that Sharee's (another annoying name!) conviction was overturned. Her and Mechele are two peas in a pod if you ask me! two manipulative bit**es (IMO). Did Sharee get out of jail?

    Peas in a pod indeed! And yes, Sharee has been free since July 2009. A federal judge released her on a personal recognizance bond, pending appeal. Sharee gave a pretty extensive interview in the recent Dateline episode, which can be watched online here: msnbc.com Video Player. She's apparently living with a woman who used to work as a guard at her prison. The former guard, Terri F. Williams, is apparently an author who is working on Sharee Miller's biography. In the Dateline interview, Sharee said she was very troubled by Fatal Error the true crime book about her case and apparently she and Williams are going to set the story straight or something.

    Does anyone remember what was said about Kent being killed in that remote location? I remember them saying that it was a fluke that he was found at that time. Seems like the murderer would want him found pretty quickly so that a bear or animal didn't scatter his remains resulting in a big delay in insurance payout, if it paid at all for a missing person. It won't suprise me at all if she's found innocent now that Carlen is dead.

    All the cases I have seen the prosecution always has an advantage on a retrial
    They learn from mistakes that were made first time around and focus on the relevant facts
    There is still far more than enough evidence for a conviction bail will be bitter sweet for her
    She is being completely delusional if she thinks she’s going to stay out

    Let’s get the ball rolling again things have been pretty quiet lately.
    Funny thing as much as we all think she’s guilty the folks at the other camp think the opposite
    How can that be for the same facts 2+2 =5?
    One would wonder how a bunch of same people could be so Diametrically Opposed are we missing something here

    With regard to sharing legal costs, indeed, if 40 of us chipped in, say, $2,000 up front, and we made monthly payments for a year to the lawyers, each of another $500 a month or something, per person, we have what we need. Right there, is $320,000. I'm in. Count me in. In fact I will contribute more than $2,000down and $500 a month, to the lawyers, so count me in. I'll go way higher than that, on my contribution. Now we just need another 39 people...But I'm in. As they say in poker 'I'm all in".



    I understand they have to have a new trial within 6 months?
    They keep going on about money for the defense, some indigent people have had the best defense lawyers money can buy provided by the state.

    I still think the state will win
