Sherry West's Baby Shot
at 12:19 PM
Many of you wonder what I think about Sherry West's story. I am deeply troubled by it on many levels. Clearly, Sherry West is a tortured and troubled soul, and I am suspicious by her behaviors that she has deep emotional problems, and hence mental illness cannot be ruled out. With that, I want to proceed with caution on this: great caution.
I clearly understand why people are flagging this case. I see many, many hotspots in Sherry's behavior. She has a whine to her voice, she doesn't shed tears, she has a gun pointed at her and doesn't believe it is real--even after the prep supposedly shot the the ground beside her, grazed her ear with a bullet and she was shot in the leg and her leg felt "numb". She tells us she only knew the gun was real when the perp killed her baby. That seems implausibly unrealistic.
I read that the perp shot the baby directly between the eyes. If that is true, how did he get such good aim if she was protecting him?
Sherry doesn't give us any details about how she tried to protect her baby at all or how she got help. She also refused to give the man her purse despite the fact that he supposedly had a gun and seriously threatened her with it.
It all defies logic.
Sherry also had life insurance on a baby, yet was financially struggling and even complains that having a baby is "expensive" after her baby is killed, which is notable.
I am troubled by the fact Sherry tells her daughter that her brother is dead and then immediately asks when she will get a payout from the insurance.
Sherry also tells us that she is disabled, and that she has already had two cash payouts. That raises my eyebrows.
I do not find Sherry a trustworthy person at all. I would be scared to death of her if I met her on the street, even before any of this happened. She is a person that I would only trust what I could verify with my own eyes regardless of what she says because she is emotionally tortured and all over the board.
I believe the only way to get to the truth in this case, with Sherry's emotional issues, is to rely on facts and facts alone, and nothing else. I hope that is what is done in this case. I have had my concerns there have been some rushes to judgement.
I'd also like to see the two accused speak out as well. If they do, please point me to the interviews.
