She is guilty. Her children watched her shoot her husband, their father (one did). It was her gun. What dont you all get?

What we don't 'get' is that her gun was not matched by forensics or ballistics as the murder weapon. The gun recovered from the lake was not matched as the murder weapon. None of her 3 sons claimed to have witnessed the assault or death of their father.
There certainly is CSI evidence which determines a a link with the murderer but with all their scientific genious none of it links with DG.
The only people who 'KNOW' what really happened are the people who were there - and I would venture that eliminates all persons writing here. What we have is a suspicion based on our individual interpretation of the limited evidence released by the Texas DA's office.
Do we not all think we should have acces to ALL the evidence ? Or, what are we afraid of learning ?

I find this monster both very arrogant and narcissistic. I have studied this case quite a bit and if I heard only the 911 call and saw the video of her getting in that pond trying to find her gun with a stick it would be all I need to see her guilt. In her 911 call she starts explaining irrelevant details and finally gets to the point that her husband has a bullet in his head. Plus the video speaks for itself. I have seen interviews she has done since she went to prison and I can't believe her arrogant and defiant attitude as she claims innocence in the face of overwhelming evidence. She does not show even a scintilla of remorse or sadness over her husband's death. She is just an evil and arrogant Texas "beauty queen/debutant" that thinks the rules don't apply to her. I know you all have your opinions and I respect that but if you really believe this "monster" is innocent either you're quite delusional or didn't see the information that I did or maybe both.

This case has become so ridiculous. Darlene Gentry is exactly where she belongs. The evidence was already crystal clear before they video taped her fishing around that pond for the evidence. This woman wanted out of the marraige and find a way to pay off the huge debt she had racked up. This was her way of doing just that. The one thing she didn't count on was that her so-called "attractiveness" would not make a difference. She's a cold blooded killer and she has taken away the father of her three sons. LEAVE HER EXACTLY WHERE SHE IS!!!!!

Of course, your opinions are quite right - you are very entitled indeed to reach a 'guilty' verdice, just like the jury did. Because, as you so rightly put it - based on the evidence which you have seen. The evidence made available to you. What you don't have however is the evidence retained by the DA's office that they refused to release. And why is that ?
Trust me, if you could be privy to the unreleased case evidence - you would think again. So enjoy your opinions, that's your entitlement. And it is my job to protect everyone's entitlements. But if you want all the facts before you condemn somone - please wait.

I've read some of the posts and find some of it really amusing.In Texas,and across the country,a defendant in a capital murder case has to be convicted on the evidence or found not guilty for that lack of.Facial expressions during police interviews,general body language,doesn't even constitute junk science.The woman has a number of appeallate issues for a new trial and ultimate aquittal.TEX

I am impressed Tex.
The crunch issue is we do not KNOW whether she commited this murder or not. Only the persons who were there at the time KNOW.
I was not there therefore I cannot say she is innocent, no more than anyone on this site can say she is guilty. What is fairly certain is that she did not get a fair trial (too much evidence was withheld from the Court)and from my professional view (actually shared by a number of other professionals) her defence attorney failed her.
It would be hoped that a re-trial would get the hidden evidence released and 'justice' finally served. If she is found guilty at a fair trial - then so be it. But I have my doubts because of the little things: little things like - the gun recovered from the lake was not identified as the murder weapon. Makes you think, doesn't it ?

I went to high school with Darline and to College with her husband. I just wanted to get it on the record that she had a perfect ass. Man what I wouldn't have given just to have hit it a few times.

Honestly everyone professing her innocence is pretty stupid. I mean there is a video of her wading in a pond looking for the gun she killed him with. I didn't want to believe it. Trust me, she was like the most popular girl in our school, but it is what it is. She killed Keith it is about as clear cut as you can get. She sure was one hot piece of ass though back in the day...

How did the gun get into the pond? The police were at the house in less than 20 minutes (no time for DG to vist the pond and dispose of the gun), police search of the house and DG (and these are very thorough)showed the gun was not at the house when they arrived.
Why were DG's fingerprints not found on the guns left on the lawn outside ?
Why did the spent cartridge not match the bullet ?
No finger prints because she wore rubber gloves. The same rubber gloves they found in the trashcan in her kitchen with both his and her DNA... Come on you can't really be serious can you? She is hot, but she is guilty. I wonder what she will look like when she gets out of there?

"No finger prints because she wore rubber gloves. The same rubber gloves they found in the trashcan in her kitchen with both his and her DNA..."
Wow up there. I didn't say there were no fingerprints on the guns found outside. Just that they were not Darlen's. And if she wore rubber gloves to handle those guns then she would have distrubed the fingerprints that were there. But they weren't disturbed. Okay, she may have picked those guns up with a stick down the barrel - but why then wear rubber gloves ?
I fear you may have watched and been over-influenced by the TV programme,'Snapped'. Try to remember those programmes are made for entertainment and many of them contain errors. Several serious ones in the case of DG.(If you watch the video again, try to spot where they tell you the gun from the lake was not matched as the murder weapon. It isn't easy.)
As for her posterior attributes, I really wouldn't know. And I have no idea what she may look like upon eventual release. Neither do you. I am however tempted to muse if she remembers you at all - it's in a perhaps rather different way.

She setup the 911 call with some info leading the cops in aother direction and then she finally talks about her husband being hurt. Someone was supposed to have broke in and stole the guns which were all found in the yard. Who had motive to go in and kill Keith and take nothing except the gun that killed him. The gloves and the digging in the pond were just residual activies of a murderer.....

If at the time of making the 911 call Darlene did not know that Keith been shot (just that he was seriously ill), it fits.
Who said someone was supposed to have broken into the house and stole all the guns ? Where did you get this from ?(What was stolen was not declared in the tv program. And certainly it was not a something that a wife would steal from her husband.)
There was certainly more than one person with a motive to kill Keith. And why do you say they took nothing but the gun used to kill him ?(Look more carefully.)
The Lake issue is serious. This could well be the activity of a murderer. But it is possible,(though perhaps statistically less likely), they are also the actions of someone acting on a ‘tip off’ who wanted to see if the tip-off was merely heresay or had more to it. Either way, it was certainly an unwise pursuit.

I guess you did not hear the 911 call and did not see the pictures... If you were in fear for someone you certainly try to provide help and let the 911 personel know how serious the injury was. Pink foam was coming from his mouth and she was a nurse.... Nothing was taken period.

Hi Karma, I do not wish to be rude but I have rather heard the recorded evidence and seen the pictures.(I am privy to the case.)
Pink foam coming from the mouth is not direct evidence of a gun-shot wound, rather a symptom of a number of medical conditions which are far more common. In your advice ‘Nothing was taken period.’ I must disagree with you, as does the scene of incident property list.
It is indeed understandable that people believe what is shown to them and when presented in a wholesome rounded-up story fashion they form the impression what they have seen is the whole story. But in many cases it is not. Consider this: the police took 9 minutes to respond and attend/secure the scene. If DG had gone to dump a gun in the pond after shooting Keith she would not have had time to return by the time the police arrived. If she was to dump the gun later, then she would have had it at or about the house when the police were there. The police would have found it(they tend to be rather good at that kind of thing). They have certified (in Court) the gun was not there when they attended. And why would DG take such actions if the gun from the lake was not the murder weapon ? Sure it was another .22. but that’s just the problem – it was ANOTHER .22.

She's where she belongs. She's not getting what she deserves because for that to happen, she would have to be dead and her husband alive. She is a worthless piece of crap who shouldn't even be allowed the air she breathes each day.

There's a lot of woman like darlene that got away with murder out there enjoying the fine style of living and insurance..well she closed the case herself by going too find the murder weapon! Hope someday she will confess and let the truth out and find peace with God.
