The comment below was posted by a lady called Angela, claiming to be one of the victims of Jaid Black’s (Elloras Cave founder) husband (you guys remember him right? He’s serving time for murder etc, etc.) The comment was in response to this post, from way back. Some of you may remember the shitstorm it caused.

Anyway, here’s what Angela wrote:

“KAREN
This blog hits home to me because I am also a vitcum of her husband in the case he is serving a life sentence for.
The young womans name that was murdered is Karen also! I am Angela, Karen Stewart’s daughter. One of his charges are for attempted murder against me because after shooting my mother he shot at me and thankfully the bullet wizzed by my head.
I was 14 then and am almost 32 now. That was how old she was when he took her from us (for the rest of our lives).
She was an amazing woman and mother. My daughter is 8 and my step daughter is 14 and they have more heart and brains than this (Jaid) Black woman. Thank you so much for taking up for the victum (my mother)and our family.
Neither of those idiots have any remorse.

A few years ago she contacted me trying any way she could to find a reason to get here low life, “Poor” and “Uneducated” husband, David Keen, out of prison. I was shocked and disgusted.
To respond to Mrs. Tina Marie Keens, AKA Jade Black’s statment, YES he deserves to be alone and have lousy medical, rotten fruits and vegetables and no family.

My brother and I were left without a mother and our children have no grandmother. His victim is DEAD and we have a hole in our lives and are consequently victims and his incarceration is of great value to us and we ALL think he is where he belongs, FOREVER, just as my mother is unfortunatly where she is FOREVER. In that lousy prison system that I am so thankful for.”

I can’t lie, that comment made me feel downright weird, and not in a good way. It also made me feel very sad.
