GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER

August 28, 2007
DEAR WORLD.
MY NAME IS SHELLY HASINGS, MY GRANDSON IS TANNER LEE WEBB,
MY SON IS BRIAN CHARLES WEBB, AND HE IS TANNERS DADDY.
ON OCTOBER 21, 2006 MY BEAUTIFUL FULL OF LIFE GRANDSON WAS BEATEN, TORTURED, SEXUALLY ABUSED AND FINALLY MURDERED ONE WEEK AFTER HIS THIRD BIRTHDAY.
HIS KILLER IS HIS NEW STEPFATHER RUSSELL ALLEN MILLER.
TANNER SPENT HIS SHORT LIFE LIVING IN TWO HOMES. HIS PATERNAL GRANDMOTHER SHELLY HASTINGS PROVIDED EVERYTHING FOR THE TEEN AGED PARENTS OF TANNER. IF THEY WERE NOT LIVING IN HER HOME THEY WERE LIVING IN HIS MATERNAL GREAT AUNT BRANDIE AND UNCLE KEVIN‘S HOME, THEY ALSO PROVIDED EVERYTHING FOR THE KIDS.
TANNERS PARENTS WERE ONLY 15 AND 16YRS OLD WHEN GOD BLESSED US ON THAT SPECIAL DAY, OCTOBER 13, 2003.
MY LIFE WAS FOREVER CHANGED ON THAT BEAUTIFUL DAY, I BECAME A GRANDMOTHER, I BECAME TANNERS NANA. HE WAS MY WORLD, NOT JUST MINE BUT TO THE WHOLE FAMILY ON BOTH SIDES.
TANNER WAS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE BOY, AND NO THAT IS NOT JUST COMING FROM HIS NANA! HE REALLY WAS GORGEOUS.
HE HAD A HEAD FULL OF STRAWBERRY BLOND HAIR, HIS DADDY’S HAZEL EYES, AND HIS MOM MYS BUTTON NOSE.
HE WAS SO FUNNY AND SILLY. HE WAS PURE BOY THROUGH AND THROUGH. HE LOVED ANY SPORT WITH A BALL, THE TEXAS LONGHORNS WERE HIS FAVORITE, WE HAVE SO MANY PICTURES OF HIM GIVING THE LONGHORN SALUTE!
HE LOVED MUSIC AND SINGING AT THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS, HIS PUPPY HARLEY MEANT THE WORLD TO HIM, THEY GREW UP TOGETHER. HE WAS STUBBORN, HARD HEADED, AND HAD THE WEBB TEMPER! AND WAS SPOILED ROTTEN JUST LIKE THE REST OF THEM.
GOOFY, A SPONGE BOB FREAK AND LOVED TO EAT.
HE WAS SWEET, LOVING, CARING,AFFECTIONATE AND TENDER.
HE IS DEAD.
NO ONE IS BEING CHARGED WITH HIS MURDER. INSTEAD RUSSELL MILLER IS BEING CHARGED WITH “ INJURY TO A CHILD “ RUSSELL IS ALSO NOT BEING CHARGED WITH “SEXUAL ABUSE“ SO IF THE DAY COMES HE IS RELEASED ON PAROLE HE WILL NEVER HAVE TO REGISTER AS A SEX OFFENDER.
RUSSELL’S TRIAL IS SET FOR SEPTEMBER 10, 2007 IN DENTON COUNTY TEXAS. DOCKET CALL IS FOR THIS FRIDAY AUGUST 31, 2007.
TANNERS FAMILY IS VERY UPSET THAT A MURDER CHARGE IS NOT BEING PURSUED. THE TWO CHARGES CARRY THE SAME PENALTY BUT MURDER IS AN AGGRAVATED CRIME. THIS MEANS IF RUSSELL IS SENTENCED TO 50 YEARS ON AN INJURY TO A CHILD CHARGE HE ONLY HAS TO SERVE A QUARTER OF HIS TIME, 15 YEARS. A MURDER CHARGE REQUIRES YOU SERVE HALF OF YOUR SENTENCE BEFORE SPEAKING TO PAROLE.
JUST AS UPSETTING IS THE FACT THEY ARE NOT PURSUING THE SEXUAL ABUSE CHARGES. I WAS TOLD “IT WOULD MUDDY THE WATERS” I’M NOT REALLY SURE WHAT THAT IS SUPPOSED TO MEAN.
TO THIS DATE TANNERS MOTHER(USE THE TERM LOOSELY) HAS NOT BEEN CHARGED WITH ANY CRIME.
TANNER WAS BEING ABUSED PRIOR TO HIS DEATH, DESTINEE ASHTON SPANN MILLER KNEW HER SON TANNER WAS BEING ABUSED.
SHE EVEN LEFT ONCE, TOOK TANNER TO A FRIEND TANNA PATTON’S HOME AND SHOWED TANNA THE BRUISES ALL OVER TANNERS 2YR OLD BOTTOM, HAND PRINTS EVERYWHERE.
DESTINEE STAYED GONE FROM THE MILLER HOME FOR ABOUT ONE WEEK, THEN SHE TOOK TANNER BACK. SHE MARRIED RUSSELL IS SEPTEMBER.
SHORTLY AFTER SHE BECAME PREGNANT AND HAD AN ABORTION OF RUSSELL’S BABY.
NOT LONG AFTER RUSSELL BEAT TANNER TO DEATH, AN EYE FOR AN EYE?
TANNER WAS BEING KEPT FROM HIS FATHER AND PATERNAL FAMILY THE LAST FOUR MONTHS OF HIS LIFE. WE WERE NOT AWARE OF MILLER AT FIRST UNTIL AFTER THE MARRIAGE.
WE WERE NOT AWARE OUR BABY WAS BEING HURT BADLY IN THE MILLER HOME.
THERE WERE NO CUSTODY PAPERS FOR TANNER, BASICALLY WHO HAD POSSESSION OF HIM COULD KEEP HIM UNTIL THE PAPERS WERE FILED.
WE DIDN’T GET THEM FILED QUICKLY ENOUGH. WE HAVE TO LIVE WITH THIS FOREVER.
TANNERS FAMILY IS ASKING FOR HELP PLEASE. HIS STORY NEEDS TO BE TOLD TO THE WORLD. PEOPLE HAVE TO KNOW THAT THIS REALLY DOES GO ON TO REAL PEOPLE, YOU AND ME, IT HAPPENS.
CHILDREN ARE DIEING EVERYDAY AT THE HANDS OF MONSTERS AND THEY ARE NOT BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS.
JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES AND TRY FOR A MINUTE TO PICTURE IN YOUR HEAD TANNERS LAST DAY OF LIFE.
HIS MOTHER WOKE THAT MORNING, SAID SHE FED HIM BREAKFAST AND THEN WENT TO WORK AROUND 11AM.
HE WAS HOME ALONE ALL DAY WITH MILLER.
TANNERS CAUSE OF DEATH IS “ BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA TO HIS HEAD “, HIS CAUSE OF DEATH HAS BEEN RULED A HOMICIDE.
TANNER HAD OVER 43 EXTERNAL INJURIES ON HIS LITTLE BODY FROM HIS FACE TO HIS FEET, MULTIPLE HEAD HEMORRHAGES AND ONE CAUSED THE FINAL BLOW. TANNER HAD INJURIES TO HIS PRIVATE PARTS CONSTANT WITH SEXUAL ABUSE, BURNS AND INJURIES CAUSED BY SEVERAL UNKNOWN WEAPONS.
HIS TUMMY WAS EMPTY, HE HAD NOT EATEN ANYTHING ALL DAY.
HE WAS CARE FLIGHTED TO CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL AND PASSED AWAY AROUND 6PM THAT EVENING….
OVER 8 HOURS WITH RUSSELL ALONE…HIS INJURIES SPEAK FOR HIM…TANNER HAS GIVEN HIS LIFE AND LITTLE BODY….
IF RUSSELL AND DESTINEE MILLER WALK AWAY FROM THIS WITH A SLAP ON THE WRIST WHAT WAS TANNERS LIFE SUPPOSED TO MEAN? WHAT PURPOSE DID IT SERVE?
PLEASE LOOK AT TANNERS AUTOPSY REPORT ATTACHED AND HIS STORY. PLEASE HELP US HELP THE CHILDREN.
TO MANY CHILDREN ARE BEING MURDERED AND FORCED TO BE ABUSED A SECOND TIME BY THE JUSTICE SYSTEM. IF WE DO NOT DO SOMETHING NOW WHEN DOES IT END? HOW MANY MORE TANNER’S ARE THERE GOING TO BE.
DOES A CHILD OF AN ELECTED OFFICIAL SOMEWHERE HAVE TO SUFFER THE SAME FATE BEFORE IT MATTERS ENOUGH TO DO SOMETHING?TANNER WAS NOT GIVEN A CHOICE, HIS FATE WAS FORCED ON HIM BY THE VERY PEOPLE PUT ON THIS EARTH THAT SHOULD HAVE LOVED AND PROTECTED HIM WITH THEIR LIVES.
THEY FAILED HIM TERRIBLY.
PLEASE DON’T LET MY GRANDSON BE ABUSED AGAIN. HE HAS DONE HIS PART AND ITS THE WORLD’S RESPONSIBILITY NOW TO MAKE SURE JUSTICE IS SERVED TO HIS KILLERS. TO CHANGE LAWS TO PROTECT THE VERY ONES THAT CANNOT PROTECT THEMSELVES.
