“How To Kill Someone And Not Get Caught”: Texas Woman Faces Murder Charges After Self-Incriminating Search

murderSandra Louis Garner, 55, is facing murder charges after police investigating the death of her husband found that, before his murder, Garner searched “how to kill someone and not get caught.”  The search does not appear to have offered in terms of compelling advice given the evidence unearthed by investigators.

 Jon Garner was found shot to death on January 2nd in their home.  Sandra Garner called 911 and claimed that she “was awakened by two gunshots and saw a masked male holding a gun and flashlight inside of her residence.”  She insisted that the intruder promised not to harm her in return for $18,000 from a safe. He then allegedly told her to hide in the home while he fled.
The problem is that police quickly found a match for the murder weapon: .38-caliber pistol wrapped in a paper towel inside two plastic bags in her Ford Mustang.
I am not sure what her computer search yielded, but the gun in the Ford is hardly a recommendation for web-inspired homicide.

  1. How about simply looking at this very posting?
    It seems to have all the right wording you are supposed to avoid, not to mention all the comments!

  2. Today is MLK Day. We need a topic for the blog which is on page with that subject. Skip Trump, skip ugly women. MLK All The Way.

  3. I made a paper copy of this ugly itchBay and posted it under my kitchen sink so as to keep the rats out.

  4. Mug shots are the ugliest things in America. Newspapers need to stop using them so much. Or stop using them at all. What we do in our town is post photos on the bathroom walls at gas stations and the city hall of the publishers of the newspapers. Under those “Mug Shots” we post false charges like abusing a minor by cutting off his coal and what not.

  5. I am really bothered by these recovered internet searches. I know my Netflix watches and Hulu watches are heavy on crime shows, both fiction and real, although I watch the other drivel, The Crown, Stranger Things, etc. Both those accounts would be enough to put me away for murder.

      1. Al O’Heem – that was a great movie and I think they found him not guilty. 😉

      2. George Axelrod, who wrote and produced “How to Murder Your Wife,” was a superb writer and all-around talent. He also wrote “The Seven Year Itch” (adapted into a movie starring Marilyn Monroe) and he created the screenplays for the great film versions of Truman Capote’s “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and Richard Condon’s “The Manchurian Candidate.”

  6. Many criminals are caught today when investigators find incriminating evidence based the the suspect’s internet searches. That sort of evidence is usually insufficient in itself to obtain a conviction, but it certainly can lead investigators on the right track.

    There’s an interesting case that ended up on Forensic Files in which a young man that was planning on murdering his wife looked up on the internet ways to shoot himself without risking severe bodily harm and with the best prospects for a full recovery. He was planning on using the recommended techniques to stage a robbery gone bad, but, in which his wife would not be so lucky after the “perpetrator” shot several times and “fled.” He did shoot himself in such a manner to attempt to create his alibi, but when investigators found his internet searches involving this very topic, along with forensic evidence indicating the bullet distances and trajectories were consistent with self-inflicted wounds, it was only a matter of time before investigators got the the full picture.

  7. In addition to Internet Searching Ms. Garner should have joined a local theater group and worked on a convincing presentations. Her mug shot / arrest photo hardly screams “who me”?
