Stephanie Barron is a very beautiful young lady. It's no wonder she's a heartbreaker. Unfortunately she's also incarcerated in Texas under a seventy-five-year sentence for murdering her mother Catherine and her father Steve. That has not stopped the cloven-hooved cutie from becoming the apex of a love triangle that alas was revealed on this website by exchanges between two commenters.
Following all the brouhaha, which has certainly played well over at LiveJournal and has others feeling like they need to tune in tomorrow, Stephanie has something she wants to relay. Through her husband (also named Steve), she has written a letter to the readers of Clews and it would behoove other young people to warm to Stephanie's advice.
My husband told me about this blog and asked me to make a comment in my own defense. There have been a lot of people to comment on here, some claiming to be close friends of my Mother, some claiming to have first hand knowledge of my case and others just being entertained by my loss.
The only thing I want to say is there is nothing The State of Texas, no Judge, Jury or prison offical that can do anything to me that I haven't already done to myself. I did not kill my parents but the life I was living, the rebellious attitude I had and the people I associated myself with did cause their deaths. I have to live with this for the rest of my life.
I miss my Mom everyday and there isn't anything I would not do to go back in time and change the decisions I made and have my Mother here now.
I won't spend my time here trying to justify my actions or pleading my innocence. I am guilty of being a brat and that attitude cost my Mom & my Dad their lives, me my freedom and my family to be torn apart.
I can only hope that if there are some other young teenage girls out there that hear my story, see first hand how a teenage girl from a good home with good grades and a strong support system could go from all of that to here and see how important it is to choose your friends wisely, follow your up bringing and learn from my mistakes. Maybe then they won't have to go through what I have gone through.
I don't blame anyone but myself for where I am today. I know there were people that did not tell the truth and there were those involved that acted for their own best interest but had I been doing the things my Mom raised me to do and been living the way my Mom raised me to live none of this would have ever happened.
Today I live inside these gray walls and I don't have many of the luxuries I enjoyed at home with my folks but I am grateful I have family that supports me and stands beside me, a husband that adores me and I adore as well and the hope to one day make parole and rebuild my life the way my Mom & Dad raised me to be.
