SMART Pamela

Pamela Smart was young, beautiful and ambitious. She lived in the small town of Derry, New Hampshire, on the east coast of America. And it does not find a place for himself. Career teachers are not attracted to her, family life was monotonous and dreary, and she was trying to find a variety of having an affair with a young kid. But this vicious passion was to lead and has led this woman and her young lover to tragedy.

May 1, 1990 a patrol officer Gerald Skachchia received an urgent call. That evening, as usual, engaged in drunken and reckless drivers, and the dispatcher sent him to the outskirts of the city, saying something about the male body was discovered.

Police found sobbing Pamela Smart on the porch of a neighboring house. The hysteria she showed at the open door of his house, and repeating: “He is there. My husband was there.” Lighting the way flashlight Skachchia entered the house and saw the hall a man lying face down. He turned over the body, intending to inspect the corpse, when he noticed a small hole at the temple. It was the trail of bullets. They shot at point blank range with a revolver.

Neighbors unanimously expressed their sympathy for the young widow and friends tried to console the poor woman who lost her husband shortly before the first anniversary of their wedding.

Pamela, director of the Training Center, who led the local school, was summoned to the police station, where she explained that that evening was at a school assembly. In Derry, she and her husband Greg came a few months ago. He worked as an insurance agent. No, she does not know who and why needed to kill her husband. But the detective who conducted the interrogation, said: “There was something strange in her behavior. The world it collapsed, and she, well. Looked too quiet. I found it somewhat eerie. Call it professional intuition, but there was nothing specific that the time would cause suspicion “.

The investigation conducted captain Lauren Jackson. That he had to unravel the story. As a detective, he was also struck by the apparent calm widow. And in the picture of her husband’s murder turned parts that do not fit into the story of Pamela. In addition, there is no confirmed her version of the burglary. Diamond ring on the left hand of the victim. The money in the wallet was not, but all credit cards were in place.

Once the assassination of the city rumors about Pamela and Greg Smart . They said that the pair amused drugs, and made his home and wild parties. Pamela has called on local television and said it was ready to make a public statement to refute rumors. “It looks too deadpan for a man, who recently struck the mountain” – thought then Jackson. He was very annoyed when Mrs. Smart only two days after the incident described the murder scene reporters. This referred to the details of which police would have preferred to keep silent in the interest of the investigation.

Young Friends of Pamela

After four days after the murder of a detective team to investigate Dan Peleter received an anonymous phone call. The caller claimed the woman that the police should interrogate a minor Cecilia Pierce. It s Pamela allegedly told about his intention to kill Greg. Detective remembered list, compiled by Pamela, where she listed the people who have been in her house for a month before the murder. This list was the name and Cecilia Pierce. Many young people attend school teacher at home. One of them was, for example, Billy Flynn. Billy, when he met a teacher Pamela Smart . It was fifteen years old.

Pamela arrived in high school Vinnakunneta to organize a series of lectures about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. School friend Billy told me that when he first saw Pamela, then turned and said, “I fell in love.”

Ambient noticed that Pamela willingly flirt with his disciples. And as it turned out the police, Billy Flynn, she gave a clear preference.

Cecilia Pierce, too, has moved closer to Pamela. She liked that twenty-two the woman did not believe her baby. mother and other teachers. Cecilia has participated, together with Pamela in the preparation of lectures about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. Very soon she began to trust the older friend, an adult woman, its maiden issue. Undoubtedly, Pamela know how to win the sympathy of teenage students.

Marriage with Greg, whom she met another student at the college, was unstable. They often quarreled – desperately, to fight. And Pamela Smart starts a love affair with Billy Flynn.

The boy never forgot her first sexual experience. He came to a woman when her husband was not at home. She put on a VCR very frank movie with Kim Basinger in the lead role. Then Billy led into the bedroom and there is depicted a scene from the film Striptease. They do have sex music “black and blue” Van Halen. Then, again copying a scene from the movie. Billy caressed Pam’s body with ice cubes, before again to make love.

Later, Billy says, “I experienced something of a shock. Not every day a teenager is doing so with an adult woman who says he is her very much. I was blinded. I was in love with her”.

The jealousy and hatred

They made love in her car, at home, in the school building. Since Billy was too busy in its work to combat drugs and alcohol, he could miss school. They spent a lot of time together. Pamela gave him its more than candid pictures in bikini. As a young man, still a boy, it has been a growing feeling of jealousy and hatred of her husband. Pamela told him about Greg as a villain, which made her unhappy, cheated and insulted. She would like to get rid of him. For example kill. Very soon the idea of ​​killing the boy stuck in his head. A Pamela kept telling him that if it is free, it will be able to stay with him, with Billy Flynn, forever.

Pamela Smart pushed to the murder of her husband not only Billy Flynn. It handles and Cecilia Pierce, in cultivating hatred for Greg girl.

Billy told the police that it was proposed to arrange the murder of Pam, so that it looked like a burglary. Moreover, she opened the details of a plan Cecilia Pierce. That perceived these discussions as part of the love game. which enjoyed Pam and Billy.

Stephen Savitsky, in his book “Teach me to kill,”Having examined the case of Pamela Smart . He wrote:”Perhaps for Billy and Cecilia it became something of a perverse game. which had nothing to do with reality. Perhaps they aroused flirt with danger, a kind of dance at the edge of the abyss. And maybe, was not with them adult a man capable to calm the children to open their eyes, to pay attention to the fact that their behavior becomes dangerous.

In any case, the daily contact with Pam all these strange conversations about the murder of her husband become a familiar form of their lives. Pam tried, of course in different ways to tie a boy and girl to him. And he made his own. Cecilia and Billy longs to feel loved, special, believe this woman. Mad idea Pam failed: children without disgust, gradually, in small steps moving towards the end of which was death “.

Passion Billy Pamela grew and grew stronger with her determination to kill her husband. He enlisted the support of 17-year-old Patrick Randall, 18-year-old Vance Lettima and 19-year-old Raymond Fowler. All of them Pamela and Flynn promised reward, not too true, great: stereo equipment, some money, some things from the house. The only condition Pam was asked to take her beloved dog. It is feared that the death of the host animal can upset.

The towel on the carpet

The first attempt to kill Greg foiled. Four of the conspirators, having gone “on the case” Pamela’s car, got lost and did not immediately found a home Smarts . They were going to hide in the house, waiting for Greg to return from work. do away with it. But when they finally arrived, he was already at home.

The second time, there was no failure. Flynn and Rendepp came near the house, and dressed in jackets with hoods, purchased in advance. As they approached the home of Greg Smart . from the corner in front of them there was some kind of a married couple. The boys clung to the wall, pulled on his hood. They entered the house through the metal door of a basement and ransacked the master bedroom, bathroom and living room, trying to portray the consequences of robbery, burglary. Two other accomplices crimes Lettim and Fowler, waited in the car.

Of course the murder took several seconds. They attacked Greg in the lobby. Tumbled down a man on the floor, Randall began waving a knife in front of him. Later, the young man told police that he did not have the heart to kill the Smart . Flynn then took out a revolver and shot at Greg. He fell on a towel spread on the carpet. Pamela told them in advance that she does not want to tile floor and the carpet was stained with blood.

The phone call, which sent police on the desired path was from Louise Coleman, Thirty familiar Cecilia. Cecilia told her that he knew a woman who plans to kill her husband because of the insurance. At first, Louise decided that Cecilia or dreams, or she had “gone crazy”. But when she found out about the murder of Greg Smart . I realized that I must tell the police about the conversation with Cecilia.

A month after the murder of Captain Jackson he had no doubts about the guilt of Pamela. Her behavior, coupled with the rumors suggest that this woman is somehow mixed up here. Pamela continued to spend time with their young friends, in the circumstances, it looked at least improper. Captain Jackson turned for help to his father Greg, Bill. Smart senior horrified callousness sister, her indifference to the death of her husband. He realized that it was probably Pamela killed his son. And he began to assist the police in the investigation.

Cecilia was interrogated again and again. But she remained loyal Pamela Smart . Although the Cecilia has not participated in the murder, she refused to testify against the woman, who is considered a close friend.

But the young murderers could not resist not to boast of his feat. Soon, the whole school was talking about it. One of the students. Ralph Welch, reacted to these conversations seriously. He told his father Vance Lettima that his revolver was used to murder and, besides, his son was involved in the case. Lettim checked the revolver and immediately discovered that he was shot from. He went to the police and told about it. Soon all four were to the investigator.

Cecilia helps Justice

The vicious world of Pamela collapsing, and she still could not believe his collapse. Guys testified: Flynn confessed to the murder, the others claimed that all accepted it as a game. and they had no idea that they were participating in the planned murder. But they argued that Pam Flynn forced to kill her husband. However, all this was not enough for the arrest of Pamela Smart . Indications guys had to confirm the fact of her complicity in the crime.

“We needed the evidence, explained then Captain Jackson. – It was necessary to Pamela Smart itself pleaded guilty. Luckily, Cecilia Pearce after two interviews after all the others realized what had happened horrible and disgusting, and agreed to help us get Pamela to tell the truth “.

She had to wear a hidden microphone that during interviews with Pamela convict her of murdering her husband. It instructed the public have to deal with in the conversations.

Pamela Smart . in theory, it should have been alarmed by the fact that its young associates were in pre-trial custody and testified during questioning. But apparently it was calm. In the first conversation with Cecilia, she was careful. Moreover, she assured Cecilia, that she and Billy had nothing. But the conversation continued. Police kept advised Cecilia. She offered to tell Pam that the lawyer wants to talk to her about a love note, which she once wrote to Billy.

That record a conversation Pam and Cecilia:

“Pam: Whatever they say, whatever they forced you to say, I do not have it any idea.

Cecilia: Well, I only know that I should come and talk to you. Ya I do not know what to do. I have to talk to a lawyer. You know, I hate lies.

Pam: You know, if you tell the truth, you find yourself an accomplice to murder.

Cecilia: That’s right.

Pam: So, you made your choice. What does your family think? They will say: “Cecilia, you know about that!”Do you understand?”

When another conversation she tried to keep Cecilia on its side: “I think I was your good friend. And it is worth something, even if you send me away. But if you do and do it, do you think this will solve your the problem? Do not think the problem does not run out. The whole family will clamor: “You knew about the killer! How could you live with that? “And all the newspapers will write about you. And the radio will be repeated a million times, you know?”

“A victim of unbridled fantasy”

In the end, Pamela Smart gradually began to impersonate in conversations with the girl. whose fate is closely linked with its own. During one of his last interviews, which were recorded and listened, Pamela blurted out: “Billy could say that I had promised to pay the guys. I do not know that Billy told them to go with him. But this is only a word. You know, they there is no evidence. Where is the money. They are not. They can not tie me babbling frightened sixteen milksop. I was with my professional reputation and the course that I teach. You know what that means? They have to believe me “.

Pamela Smart was surprised when Detective Dan Peleter soon came into her office and said bluntly: “I have for you have two news. good and bad. The good news – we found the murderer of your husband. The bad – you’re under arrest for complicity in the murder “.

When she was taken into custody, the guys have confirmed that they knew about the murder plan. We recognize that did this because Billy and Pamela was love. But Pamela insisted that innocent, that she – the victim of the unbridled imagination of adolescents. She said that never tempted Billy Flynn, has never slept with him, not incited his friends to murder. But already in the first days of the trial in March 1991, it became clear that her story hard to believe. She could manipulate any number of impressionable teenagers, but the jurors knew the trick. They make decisions based not on emotion but on facts.

Billy Flynn testified under oath that shocked all present in the hall. He described how loaded revolver cartridges like stopped for a moment after Greg took aim at his head. “It’s like a hundred years have flown – he wept. – And I said:

“Lord, forgive me”.

She took longer than the life of Greg

Entries made with Cecilia, were heard in court. Pamela’s voice on the tape did not like the voice saddened widow. The court heard the boastful claim that her position and prestige that it enjoys in the community, give it an advantage over the accused. Attorneys Pamela tried to present the charges against their client as having no grounds. They argued that Flynn and his company – the mentally abnormal guys who killed Greg Smart on the far-fetched reasons.

The jury, after a long dispute finally came to the conclusion that the murder of teenagers pushed Pamela Smart . She was found guilty.

Judge Douglas F. Gray made a final decision. Pamela Smart has been sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole; Billy Flynn and Patrick Revdepp received 28 years in prison, let us peel Vance – 18 years. Depot Raymond Fowler in this process has not been considered.

Pamela Smart could not believe such an end, even after hearing the verdict. She turned to her lawyer and said: “At first, Billy took the lives of Greg, now it takes my.”But Captain Jackson, who for a quarter-century of service in the police force has seen many criminals, it made no impression. He said:” Pamela Smart not only take the life of Greg, but crippled the fate of naive, impressionable young guys, when pushed them to the crime. It is a cold, calculating, totally indifferent to everything but yourself, woman. I think prison for that person – the right place “.
