I'm a bit late on getting this news but back in December, convicted killer Diane Downs was denied parole after serving 25 years in prison.
Downs was convicted of shooting her three children back in 1983, killing one. The prosecution claimed that she felt the children were in her way of a relationship with a married man, who broke off the relationship with Downs claiming he did not wish to be a father. Downs has always denied killing her children.
However, over the years her story of what happened that murder night has changed remarkably. Initially, it was a bushy haired stranger that flagged her car down on a remote country road and who then opened fire into the car and on her children. Then she claimed two men in ski masks were responsible. Then it was a man she stopped to smoke marijuana with.
As of her most recent parole hearing in December, Downs claims that she was dating a man who purported to be an FBI agent. She was allegedly driving to meet a man who had documents for an investigation. Further, she brought a book to her parole hearing in which she claims the murder of an uncle and some connection to the State Department.
I wouldn't classify Downs as unhinged but I would say she's wildly fantastic. One of the best accounts of Diane Downs' life and her crimes is Ann Rule's Small Sacrifices. A read of that book will clearly demonstrate how narcissistic and ultimately self-destructive Downs was and is. It seems her lies and fabrications continue today and she is right where she should be and where she should remain.
