Her parents didn't bail her out? Amazing after all these years.

KF remind me to stay out of trouble. Because if I don't, you WILL find it! ;-)

I just don't know what happened here. Good Catholic parents...father in law grad...great tennis player...attractive and smart... attractive smart boys...good social skills...NOT spoiled or rescued growing up... seemed to be a successful entrepreneur, brother is a good man who has done the right things...

I'm not surprised about other children gone awry who I saw were ignored or indulged but this one stuns me.

Linda's parents didn't have reason to doubt her stories when things began to go sour in adulthood as she'd been a great, no problem kid.

I guess they've " got" it now. Me, too and it breaks my heart as it's such a waste.

It is such a waste. She was a very likeable person and very talented. That woman could cook like nothing I've ever seen! Made the cutest cakes for the kids' classes and parties and would always have tons of kids over at her house.

Her boys were adorable as little boys, and were talented athletes, too.

I pray she's learning her lesson and can regain her relationship with her family.

What she did was SO very wrong though.

Any drug abuse?

I never saw any sign of drug use and social drinking was always moderate in my presence 7:40.

And, you're right about her cooking skills 7:26 especially cake decorating.

The marriage stuff was the first thing that sounded a bit " off" to me and then I started hearing of the financial shenanigans a couple of years after that.

I just don't know what happened...chemical changes from some prescribed drug or medical problem ?...or that sociopaths can be charming and never reveal what they are really like until what they want and need is thwarted by those they seek to manipulate?

I really feel for her family. I don't fault them for believing her versions of events at first and for her parents probably thinking they were helping her buy time to get out from under her financial problems. They had been so proud of her accomplishments for so long...she had been the perfect daughter.

What alerted me to her was several years ago a friend of mine told me Linda, who she barely knew, had put her down as a reference for a creditor. My friend found this out as the creditors began calling her looking for Linda and she thought it was very weird. So I ran her name in the Hinds County Judgement roll and voila, there she was with more than a few judgements and liens against her. It was pretty clear what was going on. Then a year later the Rankin Ledger listed as being arrested in their docket for larceny or embezzlement, I can't remember which charge it was. Then she moved to Tennessee soon afterwards. We figured out she was scamming investors but if no one prosecutes her or doesn't settle, then no one knows about it.

Say a prayer for her boys. These must be difficult times.

Kudos to whomever it is that is raising her youngest. He was always a good kid. I understand the oldest graduated NW Rankin but haven't heard anything since.

Yes, KF..wish I'd found you sooner. I wasn't an investor but a long time friend who was scammed.

And, it wasn't just people who Linda " barely knew" who were used.

Kingfish said...

Unfortunately its the kids who suffer but, I hate to say it, that child will probably benefit from being removed from her influence.

The pattern you see among people like Linda is they will travel in higher class circles for two reasons: there is more money and if they get caught, the pigeon is usually too embarrassed to admit what happened and thus the predator moves on to the next prey. Supposedly that is how the NE Jackson jewel thief has been able to pull it off for so long as well.

Thought that her name was Linde "Peach" Harmon? I am one of her "marks' and went to the Williamson county jail to serve her papers. They indicated that she was too much a flight risk to grant bail. Anyone who would leave her kids to escape, would jump bail.

Kingfish said...

papers for what? email me if you like.

Her maiden name is Peach. It's Linda Lee Peach Harmon.

The NE Jackson jewel thief's youngest kid goes to the same school Linda's did when they were younger. Her husband divorced her several years ago, probably for what she was doing. This was kept much too quiet and allowed her to keep stealing. And she's a psychologist? She should have her license pulled.

Glad I've missed the jewel thief but haven't missed a couple of other high society dames with kleptomania.

It's not embarrassment, it's been compassion for their families or a decision that some things are more important than " stuff" including the hassle of pursuing legal avenues or the social concerns( having your friends choose up sides especially if klepto has more money and long time social connections).

And, no matter how morally or criminally bad the behavior,there are those who will accept excuses or believe, if all else fails, the person has changed because they found Jesus. No proof of behavior change is required.

In time, even Robbie will be restored to her former place in society as she'll still have some money. Linda won' money, not enough social clout.

For those with enough money, a civil judgement is like a small fine...not a deterrent for bad behavior and besides, there's plenty of ways to keep the plantiff from ever seeing a dime...just ask OJ.

I hear the jewel thief is at it again, and still no charges.

Better than that, the jewel thief is now remarried. Sucker.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
