A group of people will do acts that the individuals within it usually wouldn’t do it if were just them. This is what happened on July 27, 1997.  Four friends got together to give her beating, but it quickly escalated to a more severe encounter that resulted in the death of Stacy Hanna.

The fairer sex bombshell bitch, mother, girl, boss lady are. Some of the ways that had been used to describe women. Killer is usually not a word that comes to mind. Welcome to the female killers podcast where we will explore women who have killed out of revenge, love, or just pure evil.

Shevonne:

One of the most memorable quotes in the movie “Men in Black” is when Tommy Lee Jones’ character Agent K exclaimed, “ A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals, and you know it!” A group of people will do acts that the individuals within it usually wouldn’t do it if were just them. This is what happened on July 27, 1997. Four friends got together to give her beating, but it quickly escalated to a more severe encounter that resulted in the death of Stacy Hanna.

Shevonne:

When Stacey Hanna came to Richmond, Virginia to help a friend move, she decided to stay. She eventually moved into the townhouse in South Belmont Avenue with Kelley Ann Tibbs and Dana Vaughn. Stacey started having romantic feelings for Kelley Ann. This was complicated due to Kelley Ann already being in a relationship with Tracy Bitner, her on-and-off girlfriend, who alongside Domica Winckler and Stephanie Cull were always coming over and hanging out. Not even three weeks after moving in, tensions started rising. The other roommate Dana later will say, “Stacey was kind of obsessed.” It is speculated that Stacey Hanna and Kelley Ann Tibbs had a sexual encounter, but that was not confirmed. However, Stacey told Kelley Ann that her girlfriend Tracy was seeing someone else. When Kelley Ann confronted Tracy, it was realized that Stacey was not being truthful. From court papers, the decision to kill Hanna was made the day before the murder was committed. Instead of asking Stacey to move out or just talking to her about it, the four decided to take Stacey out somewhere for some “ass kicking.”

Speaker 2:

On July 27, 1997, Kelley Ann Tibbs, Tracy Bitner, Domica Winckler, and Stephanie Cull , alongside Stacey and the other roommate Dana Vaughn went to a party. Dana got sick so they got in the car and started driving home. While Dana was in the car, the women confronted Stacey Hanna outside the vehicle when they stopped near the Chesterfield airport. When they all got out of the car, the four shouted,” One, two, three, I love you,” and started to severely beat Hanna. Out of nowhere, Domica took a cinder block and threw it at Hanna and it fractured her skull. Domica would later tell Detective Rick Mormando, “There are times when people need to die, and this is one of those times,” They would then take a box cutter that Hanna had shoplifted earlier to start taking turns slashing her while she was on the ground. They drove off while Stacey remained bloody and injured on the ground. The four women started talking about what to do with Stacey. They decided to turn the car around and kill her instead of taking her to the hospital because they were afraid of getting into trouble. They put her in the trunk even though Stacey pled to be let into the car. They drove and stopped once so Stephanie Cull would stab Hanna because she was getting too loud. When they arrived at a trail, Stephanie Cull went back into the car while Domica, Kelley Ann, and Tracey Bitner took of Stacey’s clothes leaving her in her underwear. They stabbed her at least 65 times with the box cutters. They would later tell investigators that Hanna wanted to call her mother to tell that she loved her once last time, and they didn’t allow it. They left Stacy with her face down in the muddy water and bleeding profusely. She died due to drowning and blood loss.

Speaker 2:

When they were caught, it was confirmed that Kelley Ann Tibbs, who was the woman Stacey Hanna had a crush on, was the one who instigated the crime. She told investigators, “ “We were all kind of feeding off each other because when Mica hit her, I was, like, `Yeah,’ you know. And I kicked her. And I hit her twice. And then Tracy was, like, `Yeah,’ you know. We’re just going to kick her around.” When asked why they killed Stacey, Domica said,” that they wanted to teach her a lesson because “she has a problem with trying to get everybody to turn against everybody… It was like she was telling sob stories and lies trying to fit in with everybody else.” Domica Winckler, Tracey Bitner, and Kelley Ann Tibbs were all sentenced to life. Stephanie Cull was sentenced to 20 years cause jury believed she was the less culpable. In 2015, Stephanie was released after serving 18 years. Stacey’s mother was not pleased. “She’s getting out in 18 years? Well, my daughter didn’t get to live for 18 years. I promised my daughter I’d get justice for her, and I will.” Her mother had been awarded money Hanna in a wrongful-death suit filed against the four women, which she said that she planned to “collect every bit of it.”

Speaker 2:

Well, what did you think? This is very similar to the case of Skyler needs, Shelia, Eddie and racial shelf. They did a horrible act for something that probably wouldn't have mattered in a year or two. They Egged each other on to keep escalating. To the point that Stacey Hannah had a horrible end. This case shook me because I did not expect to find this when I started researching to see if there were any crimes committed by women in the Richmond area. Being that I'm heading over there this weekend, I don't understand how for women could stab another one 65 times even more than that and think that it's okay. I do feel that Dominica Winkler and Kelly and Tibbs were the main perpetrators in this, but it doesn't make it right that the other two followed. And I do see why Stacey, Hannah's mom is so upset because I don't think that Stephanie calls should've gotten less sentence than the other three because you know, just the fact that when they were in the car and the Stacy Hannah was in the trunk, she stabbed her. I can't believe that the jury gave her less time and now she's out. But you know, hopefully she learned from this experience and she, you know, started helping other young women not make the same mistake and throw their life away for something stupid. And then as well as basically have someone not even have a life and not be able to grow and become, you know, the person that they should have been if they were still here. So let me know your thoughts.
