Greetings.
A Tumblr for anything and everything that falls under the True Crime umbrella. Serial Killers, Mass Shooters, Psychopaths, Inmates, Mobsters, Terrorists, Teen Killers, Deceased Killers, Prison Life, Murderabilia / True Crime Artifacts, Writing to Inmates, Books / Films, Pictures, etc. Any Asks pertaining to those subjects are welcomed and encouraged. I'm an extremely visual person so I enjoy posting as many pictures as possible. This page was created for those interested in all things True Crime and are seeking to learn more, start writing inmates, or share their knowledge. I will be posting original content & reblogging from other awesome True Crime blogs. I will answer any questions about writing to inmates to the best of my ability. This blog is purely to educate and share true crime information and showcase some of the true crime artifacts I collect; I am not "attracted" to any of the people I blog about. My personal blog? mormondyke.tumblr.com. My girlfriend is thedeathmerchant, and we will probably get married soon and drink wine right out of the bottle at our wedding, sorry but we're not sorry.

Do you know of any facilities off the top of your head that don't allow postcards to be sent?

Not off the top of my head, no.  I’ve never had a postcard returned.  I did however have a greeting card returned from a prison in Maryland, I was surprised.

I saw a guy on Lockup RAW but can not remember his name or episode name so I was hoping you'd have better skills at remembering than me. He's a young guy, and remains very boyish in nature since he was arrested as a teenager.He is charged with murder, and he has developed OCD behind bars. The woman working for Lockup would move his stuff to see how he'd react. He was always smiling and laughing. Any ideas who I mean?

Yes, I’m going to go ahead and say you’re talking about Adam Drake from Colorado, but I could be wrong.  That’s who came to mind though when I thought about it.  He used to have a profile on writeaprisoner but it’s down now.  He was in Limon Correctional.

Is there a way to privately message you to see if you might be able to help me find an address for an inmate, I think he is still in Cali but not sure, never know with him. I can find court docs, let me be more specific, a court doc, but no final ruling or sentencing. When I type in his name I only see that one document and articles from his arrest, but most is pics or info about when he was locked up in Fl., and we were together then.

I try to answer all private messages.  If someone messages me off anon and asks me not to post their ask, that is fine by me.  I will keep it between us.

What state do you think is the worst in regards to treatment of inmates in their facilities?

It really varies from facility to facility.  But I’ve heard a lot of horror stories about Alabama.  Every inmate I talk to seems to have something to say about the facility they are in.  While they might have some privileges, they might be REALLY lacking others.

Do you know what tj lanes prison looks like from the inside???

I don’t, no.  I’ve never seen pictures of the inside, only the outside.

While there is plenty of information online about The Vampire Clan and Roderick Justin Ferrell, there is very little said about Howard Scott Anderson who was sentenced to life for his part in The Vampire Clan / The Vampire Cult murder.

Below is an actual recent interview with Howard Scott Anderson (who actually goes by Scott.)  The answers to my questions are in his own words.  And yes, some of the questions are silly—-but it will help you get to know who Howard Scott Anderson is outside of what the media has portrayed him to be.

Q: What is your current favorite band?

A: Five Finger Death Punch of course, Coheed and Cambria comes in second though!

Q: How about Rap?

A: I am not a big fan of Rap, some like Eminem I like but the rest suck ass.

Q: Who would your first visit be to upon your release from prison?

A: Whom I would visit first well, probably the grave of my mom eventually…after I got everything straightened for being an ex-con.

Q: What would your first meal be upon being released?

A: First meal—-easy, anything with pork in it and home cooked!

Q: Who is your hero (if you have one)?

A: My hero, well let’s see; any man or woman that puts on a uniform of any of the Armed Forces.  Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, + Coast Guard and puts their lives on the line for this country.  Because at one point I was going to go into the Navy before I got locked up.

Q: What is your best physical feature?

A: Most people tell me that my best physical feature is my eyes.  They are dark blue .

Q: What is your most treasured possession?

A: My most treasured possession, well my sanity; because after 17 years I’m surprised I’m not crazy.

Q: Who is your current celebrity crush?

A:This one will throw you for a loop but what the hell; my celebrity crush; Paris Hilton.  Have loved her since I saw her in a magazine in her underwear and I was almost drooling.

Q: What do you miss most about being a kid?

A: What do I miss most about being a kid?  Well for me really nothing because my childhood sucked.  I grew up poor and spent two years in foster care.  So I don’t really miss being a kid.

Q: What is something you look for in a girlfriend/spouse?

A: Besides loyalty in a spouse…well for me I guess it would be trust and respect, because these go hand in hand.  To be able to trust your significant other you have to first  respect their views and dreams and vice versa.

Q: What are your three major turn-ons?

A: Three turn-ons, wow such a broad subject especially toward a guy.  I, a naked girl, a naked girl, and a naked girl!  (HA HA)!  Funny huh!  But seriously I think a woman wearing a pair of thigh-high stockings and high heels gets my motor revved up the most.  Serious when need be; playful and fun-loving at the same time.  Basically being yourself is the best for me.  Lastly I would say lingerie and tattoos are both sexy to me.  The sexy underwear is an item that tweaks the imagination.  The tattoos are a point of self-expression, hell I’ve got a shit load of them myself.

Q: What tattoos do you have?

A: I have 3/4 sleeve on my right arm.  Consisting of a scantily clad woman with a knife and the rest of the arm covered in cheese work and tear out work.  A vampire biting a chick on my left forearm, a tribal sunburst on my left elbow and a skull with a candle on my left shoulder.  Sagittarius on my stomach and a skull with my nickname VAMP tearing out of my left shoulder blade.  So those are my tattoos every one of them.  I want to get a few of mine re-touched but I’m gonna wait until I get out before I do that.

Q: What is one thing you want me to know?

A: One thing I want you know, wow, that’s a tough one!  I know I wouldn’t know how to use the internet or a damned IPhone to call for pizza!  (HAHAHA!)  I’ve been gone so long I’m so far behind times it’s crazy.

Howard Scott Anderson is currently being held at the Calhoun Correctional Institution in Blountstown, Florida.  Like many inmates doing life, Scott is currently trying to appeal his sentence and one day be a free man.  He can currently use all the support he can get.  If you are interested in writing and reaching out to Scott, do not ask him about his crimes, please!  He does not have much money to keep up with correspondences, but Florida inmates are able to receive stamps in the mail, so if you would like a reply and you can do it, include a book of stamps with your letter, or at least a stamped envelope for a reply!  Any support would be tremendous for Scott right now.

In 1966, David Reimer’s circumcision was botched and he lost his penis to burns. Psychologist John Money suggested that David be given a sex change, his parents agreed. Money then used David to prove that gender identity was not inborn, but determined by upbringing. David was renamed Brenda and surgically altered to have a vagina. Brenda acted like a boy throughout childhood. At 14, Brenda was told the truth, and decided to go back to being David. He committed suicide at the age of 38.

I loved this book!  I read it many many years ago…very intense read.  It’s called As Nature Made Him: The Boy Who Was Raised A Girl.
