Mom Pens Chilling Note Month Before Ex Murders Her Over Brutal Custody Battle

“He was smooth and had me fearing everything he said would come true,” wrote Debra Morgan, an Oklahoma woman, shortly before being murdered in 2016 following a long custody battle with her ex.

Richard Spaulding and Sonia Weidenfelder, Spaulding’s fiancé, now face first-degree murder charges, according to Fox.

On the day Morgan had been killed, records show that a court of appeals had filed in her favor pertaining to child support over offspring she had with Spaulding. Spaulding was going to have to pay over tens of thousands in legal fees. The child at the center of the argument has since been put into DHS custody and may eventually go to live with a family member.

Morgan’s aforementioned note contained extensive information about the physical and emotional abuse she suffered at the hands of Spaulding. 

“If I end up dead, go find Rick [Spaulding],” she even told a coworker, according to The

Here’s what you need to know:

Man Kills Family 3 Weeks Before His Wedding So Fiancée Doesn’t Find Out He Lied About Job

Toronto man Brett Ryan has been given three life sentences and a concurrent 10-year sentence in prison for first- and second-degree murder and attempted murder after slaying three family members with a crossbow. According to Cosmopolitan, Ryan feared that the mother of his fiancée would inform his bride-to-be that he had lied to her about having both a job and a college degree (he, in fact, had neither).

Ryan had previously committed eight different bank robberies and served almost four years in prison — his fiancée was aware of his sordid past.

Ryan had held an IT job but was fired when they became aware of his criminal record. He informed his fiancée’s mother who agreed to help him financially — but Ryan decided to kill her anyway, fearing she’d tell her daughter.

Ryan attempted to cover up the murder by using improvised devices that would create a “digital footprint” if he needed an alibi.

A sexual predator’s appeal has been denied by the state court of Pennsylvania. According to Penn Live, Frank Yeager has been sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison for plotting prospective rapes. “I truly enjoy the hunt and cannot wait for my prize,” he bragged in a diary entry fantasizing about attacking women.

Per court filings, Yeager entered a female realtor’s office in Lehigh County’s Upper Macungie Township before closing time in November 2012. He had targeted female Realtors for rape and had done research to develop his attack plan. Crime Online says he had a list of 200 women he was obsessed with. 

Per Penn Live, Yeager asked the woman to show him a home. He went inside and turned off the lights and drew the curtains to wait for her. When she didn’t come in, he made up a false story about a water leak that he wanted her to look into.

20-Year-Old Mom Sends Dad Disturbing Text Before Suffocating 2-Year-Old Daughter To Death

A mother in England who suffocated her 2-year-old daughter to death sent the child’s father “one last picture” before killing her.

Twenty-year-old Cody-Anne Jackson has been sentenced to prison for a minimum of 16 years for killing Macey Hogan, according to the BBC. She sent a text message to Macey Hogan’s father before the suffocation death, saying, “Sorry, just thought you deserved one last picture and memory of her.”

The judge told Jackson that she committed a “wicked and appalling act,” one made out of self-absorption.

“This was a killing that was cold and callous and set to exact revenge on Paul Hogan as he had broken off the relationship with Cody-Anne Jackson,” Detective Inspector Dan Ison of the Staffordshire Police told the BBC.

The child’s body was found last October after police broke into Jackson’s home. Either a dressing gown cord or a pillow were likely used to smother the little girl,
