Hey she probably needed some new shoes. The prison stored just didn’t have the right ones.
They tried her, convicted her, and still don’t know how tall she is. I guess that’s why she had to go shopping herself...WTH...
What’s with the photo? That’s not a standard mug shot.
It looks like Matthew Brady took it during the Civil War and then someone had it in their wallet for the last hundred years.
And since when do murderers get shopping trips outside of their cell, for any reason whatsoever? Who was the moron in charge?
was her pic taken in the early 1900s?
The photo was probably taken at one of those old-time photo stores while she was shopping at the mall. Right before she went to Spencer’s Gifts...
Brings back some fond memories.
Wouldn’t want to deprive her of her woman’s rights to shop.
25 stone = 350lbs!
Law enforcement needs to relax. She’s just lost in the mall.
What the heck is a murderer do shopping?
Oh, wait, its Britain. They are a nutcase, suicidal society.
Okay, you made me go look at the photo. How right you are.....right out of the civil war. Very funny.
What kind of Alice in Wonderland world has the UK turned into?
A convicted murderer escapes while on a “shopping trip” at the mall. Mean while, a soldier who finds and turns into the police an abandoned shotgun goes to jail!
What a strange and twisted world.
Its the UK. They’re Civilized. Everybody there knows that murderers have the right to shopping trips and store-bought clothes. Can go hurting their feelings or making them uncomfortable in prison.
Thank God we live a barbarous county that, at least occasionally, executes its murderers. I just wish we did it to a higher percentage of them and faster.
