Kirksey Nix Speaks!

 or The Meditations of Kirksey Nix.  

Regret, remorse, even contrition but no confession.  Such are the words that can describe a letter Kirksey Nix submitted to U.S. District Judge Keith Starrett begging for compassionate release from federal prison.  Nix is serving life sentences for murder and another for conspiring to kill Vincent and Margaret Sherry. 

Nix submitted a request for compassionate release recently: 

TEXT ONLY ORDER as to [909] MOTION for Compassionate Release (COVID-19) filed by Kirksey McCord Nix. Along with the Motion, sensitive medical records were filed. It is hereby ordered that the attachment to the instant motion be restricted from public view. No further written order shall issue. Signed by District Judge Keith Starrett on 12/6/2023

Posted below is the letter Nix provided to the Court.

It has a lot of regret, but little remorse.

His prison "ministry" is why God kept him alive this long, he should stay on that horse and ride it over the Styx River, where his chance at Mercy, if any, awaits.

He’s still got a heartbeat. Wasn’t it mercy enough that he got to keep that so he can now bitch about not liking where he lives?

Seems nice said...

He hasn't murdered in decades so he is obviously rehabilitated.

He can have a family reunion at the event if he volunteers for hospice by a firing squad.

"He hasn't murdered in decades so he is obviously rehabilitated."

Funny sarcasm.

9:44 AM wins the comment of the day award.

Just finished reading Mississippi Mud. Good read with history of the scams and crimes associated with and leading up to the murders.

Always a con artist. He continued scamming and arranging murders from prison. That should be exhibit A as to why he should not get out of prison.

Yeah....F^Ck that guy. I hope he has internet and can read this.

He abused and extorted a protected victim class. He will never be freed.

Leave him where he is. The Sherrys are still where he put them over 50 years ago.

I'm sure 10:54 can (not) back up his claim.

@11:28 My comment stated that he should stay in prison. I'm not sure what you mean about backing up my claim. Nix was convicted of a litany of charges while he was already incarcerated for murder.

I really don't care what the convict's letter says.

He's already where he should be, and he should stay there until he leaves feet first and cold.

It would be hard to tell if the convict's letter is just another con. Since he's a convicted murderer, and considering his other crimes, the public will be safer so long as he is still behind bars.

I'm a lot more interested in reading any letters that anyone outside wrote in support of letting this convict out.

The real bad one only got 10. Pete got 10.

12:39 - Your not being sure what I mean by backing up your claim could be because I clearly posted that I don't think 10:54 can back up HIS claim, which was..."He continued scamming and arranging murders from prison." Roll out your evidence of his arranging murders while in prison.

@3:18 I guess you don't think Nix had anything to do with the Sherry murders or that lonely hearts scam?

Anonymous said...

That plea for compassion was sent to the wrong Judge. May he kneel and submit this compassionate plea to the next judge he will face.

Pete served 18.

Let this guy out. Tired of paying his rent.

I didn't say or imply that, 4:15. You posted that he arranged murders while in prison. The Sherrys were already dead then, and lonely hearts club scams are not murders. Shit or get up.

@ 5:22 Nix has been in prison since 1972. The Sherrys were murdered in 1987. In connection with the Sherry murder trial, Nix was convicted of travel in aid of murder-for-hire, wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Is that not evidence? Later, in 1997, Nix was convicted in a second trial of racketeering, conspiracy to violate the racketeering statute, fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, money laundering, and conspiracy to obstruct justice. The lonely hearts scam was basis for the wire fraud charges. All this happened while Nix was in prison.

Kirksey McCord Nix Jr. was a 44-year-old inmate serving life without parole at Angola State Penitentiary in Louisiana when he ordered the murders of Mississippi Coast Circuit Court Judge Vincent Sherry and his wife, Margaret, a former Biloxi councilwoman with mayoral aspirations.

“Hospice by firing squad.”


Anonymous said...

Was he convicted of the Sherry murders or has he admitted to it? If not, it's pure speculation that he ordered their murders.

And the conspiracy and wire fraud charges have nothing to do with 'ordering murder while in prison'.

Keep his ass locked up until the coroner comes to his cell.

Wow....reading all the opportunities he had for success and a great education that he wasted. The love of money truly is the root of all evil.

Nice to know that he listens to Dave Ramsey on how to live within your means now. I bet Dave doesn't want the endorsement though.

I hope he (Nix) kicks himself every day for wasting his life, and understands he has no one to blame but himself.

All I see in his appeal to the court is:

"I made poor choices because I was a silver-spoon kid. It's not my fault that I was a silver-spoon kid, so it can't be my fault that I made poor choices."

Why not...

"I grew up an ass-hole and never changed. I had people killed and wreaked havoc on others my entire, uncaged, life. I'm weak and would like to die at home. My dad should have used a condom".

Anonymous said...

Nix's convictions were upheld. I guess there was some sort of evidence of his guilt for the lonely-hearts scam and the murder for hire charges.

Kingfish said...

He was already serving life for a murder he DID commit before the Sherry murders.

How many bodies you want before life means life? 4?

So what's your view on Gillich being given immunity & released from custody early? He admitted under oath he located a hitman and paid to have the Sherry's murdered.

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.

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.
