Courtesy MDOC Michelle Byrom, 57, is serving a sentence at Central Mississippi Correctional Facility in Pearl for the 1999 murder of her husband.
Despite serious questions about her guilt, Byrom could be executed soon.
She would be the first woman Mississippi has put to death in seven decades.
"I sit in my room for a good 1 1/2-2 hours, and dad comes in my room, and goes off on me, calling me bastard, nogood, mistake, and telling me I'm inconciderate [sic] and just care about my self, and he slaps me, then goes back to his room.
"As I sat on my bed, tears of rage flowing, remembering my childhood my anger kept building and building, and I went to my car, got the 9mm, and walked to his room, peeked in, and he was asleep.
I walked about 2 steps in the door, and screamed, and shut my eyes, when I heard him move, I started firing. I grabbed what casings I saw, and threw them into the bushes, grabbed the gun, and went to town." Edward Byrom Jr.
confessed to murdering his father, Edward Byrom Sr., on June 4, 1999, in a letter to his mother, excerpted above.
One of at least four known confessions—there are two additional letters and a statement to his court-appointed psychologist—it might have been evidence to convict "Junior" for murder.
Junior's friend Joey Gillis was the shooter, they said, and his mother, Michelle Byrom, was the mastermind. And only Junior had gunpowder residue on his hands. Junior testified against his mother in return for a reduced sentence. Supreme Court declined to hear the case, and Jim Hood, Mississippi's attorney general, requested an execution date: March 27.
The prosecutor's theory, based on Junior's statements (which police subsequently lost) was that Michelle planned to pay Gillis ,000 for the hit from the proceeds of Edward Sr.'s life insurance. 'Happening Now' If Mississippi executes Michelle, now 57, she will be the first woman the state has put to death in 70 years. "John Grisham couldn't write this story," said Warren Yoder, executive director of the Public Policy Center of Mississippi, in an interview with the Jackson Free Press.
"When they got me here, I gave them a bullsh*t story after another, trying to save my own ass, but when (Tishomingo County Sheriff) David Smith started questioning me, and told me what happened, I was so scared, confused, and high, I just started spitting the first thought out, which turned in to this big conspiracy thing, for money, which was all BS, that's why I had so many different stories," Junior wrote in his letter. Gillis, whom prosecutors said Michelle paid to kill her husband, got an even lighter sentence. Michelle is now down to what could be her final appeal. "In any reasonable world, this would be a short story by Flannery O'Connor," Yoder wrote in an email.
"Instead, it is happening now in our Mississippi." Junior's confession isn't the only evidence the jury did not get to see.
Sexual and domestic violence filled Michelle's life.
