11/27/2005: We get comments....
Back in May, under the heading And from the "Great human achievements" department...., we posted about the plight of Corianna Thompson. Ms. Thompson had been charged with the murder of Jean Balashek, in New Scotland, NY. What makes this case interesting is that Ms. Thompson is also a male-to-female post-op transsexual (or so the story implies), and in her birth identity and gender of Corey Wayne Balashek he had served 9 years of a prison sentence for another killing. If the charge against Ms. Thompson is true, she may therefore be the first American on record to have committed homicide more than once while in different genders.
Just recently Haloscan informed me of a comment we've received to the above linked post, purporting to be from Ms. Thompson herself:
maybe charged under both genders but this i am innocent of. its been a nightmare but i keep the faith the true killer will be caught.
