Ellen Page spoke with a man who told her about how he’s killed gay people, both as a policeman and as a man for hire, and she emotionally but firmly, looking him dead in the eye, told him she was gay and asked if he thought she should die 

and I swear I have never been prouder or gayer or more in love with a person.

There are such ugly things in this world and horrible people, but to see her do that was honestly so inspiring and amazing and took so much courage and composure. She faced that with a real awareness that this man was not likely to change or give her a satisfactory answer, but she didn’t let that moment for honesty and dignity pass by.

Afterwards the three decided to go back to Kathryn’s trailer where she let Willie stay to sober up. Kathryn was addicted prescription painkillers and that night Willie gave her valium. When Kathryn passed out in her bed with her daughter Willie crept in and slept next to them. The morning after Willie and Amanda had gone.  

This case gained wide notoriety for multiple reasons, the first was that even though no body was found blood and dna of Amanda was found in his trailer. Secondly many women came forward to say they were also raped by Willie. It’s reported that Willie served 26 years in prison for sexual battery on girls under 11.  

As a fisherman, authorities believed he raped and murdered Amanda at home then dumped her body in the sea.

In 1999, Willie Crain was sentenced to death.

Got some mixed feelings here. Tomorrow I am turning 23 and I feel like I should be excited and happy about it. But right now I don’t. My mother is still in the hospital. The issues they found they fixed up so she isn’t in a terrible state. Still can’t come home for obvious reasons. They need to keep an eye on her in case more blood clots appear and cause another stroke as well as make sure the surgery for her faulty heart valve and intestinal blockage was a success. :X

Would love for her to be home with us. But I guess I am happy she’s alive and so far, talking with more diction than before. (If that even makes sense).
