This blog is to go along with my ' Forgotten & Failed: a look at women on Death row" facebook page. I want to explore some very famous cases, our broken justice system, our prisons, and give a voice to the women that sit on Death Row. If you find this against your own beliefs then this is most likely NOT the place for you. Thanks!

Retro Lady Killers
Elena Estrada was convicted of Manslaughter and sentenced to 7 years in AZ territorial prison in Yuma in the year of 1900. She had stabbed a man in the abd and he died about 2 days later. It was rumored to have been over a narcotics deal gone bad. We seldom tend to think about drugs being around in the yea of 1900. Elena was paroled in 1907.
