My wife and I watched a 20/20 documentary on this case last night and it was an incredibly frustrating. Quick rundown of the case, her two sons were stabbed to death, and Darlie herself was attacked (cut to the neck), stab wound on the forearm, cuts on the fingers. Darlie claims someone entered their house and attacked, while the state decided that Darlie was the prime suspect. Fast forward to today and Darlie has been sitting on death row for 22 years.
Is anyone else familiar with the case? If so, what are your thoughts? Given everything I've seen I think she is 100% innocent, not just "not guilty." This small Texas town basically assassinated her character because she had breast implants, wore a lot of jewelry, and was more or less an "outsider" to the community.There was a video of her and her family celebrating her oldest sons birthday at his grave, spraying silly string and smiling, that appears to have been the nail in the coffin for her. Which, still, is such a bullshit reason to convict a woman. People grieve in different ways, and due to some police fuckery, they failed to show illegally acquired video from earlier in the day when the family had a prayer service, and you could hear Darlie audibly crying her eyes out.
