More on that later.

Yes, a famous killer of two children, Paula Sims, is on her way to Alabama.
As a former St. Louis resident, I am very familiar with this case.

It happened in a suburb of St. Louis. I remember how hard it was to accept that a mother could murder her own precious little children.

Why? What did they do to you?

In 1993 a film, Precious Victims, was made about this crime.

Lock up your cribs. Of course, it started with the 'ol "someone kidnapped my baby" line. It was a lie. She had killed her children, years apart, in cold blood.

She was convicted of these murders and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. WELL, Thursday, the Illinois Prisoner Review Board voted 12-1 to approve parole for Paula Sims.

The sole "no" vote was from Jared Bohland, who believes she is still a danger to others. As I do.

I am always open to second chances but this is murdering her two kids, and not the same day.

What are the odds that postpartum psychosis would strike two times, years apart. Her lawyer claims that she thinks about her crimes daily. He says she is very remorseful.

Now comes the NEWS THAT SHE IS MOVING HERE!

You have to give the parole board your "plans" for what you will do and where you will live post prison.

She has told the parole board that she will move to ALABAMA to be a "dog groomer". OK, great. Remind me never to take my chihuahua there.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
