    Kent Leppink was a Michigan native who moved to Alaska to work as a fisherman. He met Linehan at a striptease club. Between 1994 and 1996, Linehan was romantically involved with Leppink and a man named John Carlin at the same time. For several months the three lived in the same house in Anchorage. On May 2, 1996, Leppink (age 36) was found dead in Hope, Alaska, with three .44 caliber Desert Eagle gunshot wounds. Linehan was arrested over 10 years later in October 2006 and convicted of his murder on October 22, 2007, but the verdict was overturned in February 2010

    all four of those guys were tools. The california guy was the guy she liked having sex with, John was gonna be her trigger man, Kent was good for money and gifts and life insurance money, and the doctor was her retirement plan when the life insurance didnt go through.
    The last three of those guys were lonely desperate fucks who she never would have been attracted to. They lied to themselves when they believed all her lies. Even the doctor she married. Did he look like someone she would be attracted to? Just another tool in her toolbox.
    Damn those dudes were stupid. She thought she would get Kents life insurance and John would go to jail so she would be rid of him too. When that didnt work out, she married an emasculated doctor who was easy prey for the experienced seductress. He would have been next but it would have been a divorce once assets had been accumulated.
    Doctor should cut his losses and count his blessings. I would love to see an interview of him. Hes probly still hanging on to the dream.

      She didn't. She is apparently released. "On February 5, 2010, the Alaska Court of Appeals overturned Linehan's conviction. The court concluded it was improper for the trial court to allow two pieces of evidence into the trial: testimony about the movie The Last Seduction, and a letter written by Leppink in the days before he died. The letter, which Leppink wrote to his parents, said Linehan, Carlin, or Scott Hilke were "probably" responsible if he died under "suspicious circumstances"".

    LMAO bitch got served good. She thought she could manipulate the judge with her fake tears but the judge was like "Nah bitch, nah. Your act may have worked on the poor ugly desperate men of Alaska who thought they were lucky to have been with a very attractive woman, but I'm not them." I mean seriously what motive would the other guy have outside of being told to do it with a promise of lots of money. She thought she was getting a million dollars and used that to motivate John. And those people who said "Oh poor girl, she got judge for being a stripper"
    No she was a leech that needed to be cut off once and for all. She got 10 good years of freedom without so much as a single ounce of guilt. She got what she had coming.

    Here's the thing. Not all strippers are the same. Just as all strip clubs are not the same. There are nice girls who do it, make some money, and leave it behind. However, there is a good percentage who will play men for all they can get: money, coke, dinners, marriage, whatever (and plenty who will play them just for some lap dances or whatever -- just a little ATM action and those $20 bills). Some are harder to read than others. And flattery often works like a charm on men. You have to be very careful and not rush in, unless you just want a crazy fling and know the risks. Some strippers are truly crazy and can fuck up your life. Many men say NEVER have a stripper for a girlfriend. Good, safe advice. But possible to meet a good one. Maybe better if you meet them outside of the club and get to know them, rather than meet them in their work environment. There are even those who, if they get to know that you aren't a sucker, might even be cool with you. Like play your portable video game or take a nap with you in a corner of the room or just chat if they're sick of doing the rounds of the tourists asking if they want a lap dance. Then there's the whole scoring-sex thing. There is a lot to know about that. But that's a much longer lesson.

    I refuse to testify as to how I got this information but it is very accurate.

    She's a very dangerous woman. She manipulated so many men, even persuaded one of them to murder for her willingly. Then manipulated her now doctor husband, had him support her throughout the whole process and still stand by her side after she went to prison and after all of that she stayed in prison for only 2 years and now a free woman.

    Very rare to see a female, a whte female at that get a full deserving sentence for murder. I'm whte by the way... Ooops, spoke to soon. She was released on appeal in 2011

    • Sparky Pluggs
      Sparky Pluggs 6 days ago

      @Screaming Eagle No, they go "by the law" when convenient. The law says a 19yr old male should serve a severe sentence for sleeping with a 16-17yr old underage girl in most states. But who they choose to throw the book at in those cases is subjective. I may think it's a harmless infraction you may think it's just as bad as raping a 5yr old. Point is the law is applied, twisted or ignored altogether based on race, sex, popularity and income. You giving me a technical loophole is irrelevant when it comes to those 4 factors previously mentioned. We can both commit the exact same crime in the same city and our sentences can be completely different if convicted

    • Screaming Eagle
      Screaming Eagle 6 days ago

      why would they? you mean why did they dont you? because they have to follow the law and the judge determined that is was unlawful to show the jury the letter that kent wrote because he was not alive to cross examine. Even though they know he killed him makes no difference because they go by the law not by what actually happened.

    • Sparky Pluggs
      Sparky Pluggs 6 days ago

      @Screaming Eagle Why would they overturn the murder conviction of either of them, much less the one who did the actual killing? Well that's where race comes into play I suppose. But beyond race, attractive, white females rarely serve a full sentence for murder convictions compared to any other demographic. A rich white male is more likely to get the book thrown at him for murder than a poor white female unless he can beat the case altogether

    • Screaming Eagle

      I just found out that Johns conviction was overturned also but he was killed first shortly after going to jail. How crazy. He did do it though. i guess he wasnt meant to get out. but she was?? why?

    • Screaming Eagle
      Screaming Eagle 6 days ago

      I mean, normally if they are attractive they dont get the full punnishment for some reason. Bonus question. Do you think she had anything to do with John getting beat to death in jail so he couldnt testify?

    How could Mechele be talking about ‘getaway’, ‘Seychelles’ and ‘not being extradited no matter what crime one has committed’ and still be considered innocent? Also, what’s with this specious reasoning about concealing the details of one’s past - especially when that past involves sex work? Portraying the facts puts events into perspective and gives them context; sex work is inextricably linked to manipulation and deception. Michele might have genuinely “changed her act,” as it were, but that doesn’t mean she’s not accountable for her past.

  • John Allen
    John Allen 28 days ago +2

    I've met women like this. And believe me, they are not always as beautiful as Mechelle was. She has a Mata Hari seductress look that certain guys fall for immediately. Even to the point of having to share her with three guys, they were still in love with her. That takes some serious talent to juggle all that. Women like this are intelligent but maybe they think too much? Maybe she grew into a different woman when she got older but it's kind of hard for a leopard to lose it's spots. Ask any woman. Guys are easy to manipulate.

    Not sure what about being an exotic dancer makes this Mechelle a gold digger. I was fucking 4 girls at one time when I was 20. Lived with two of them as friends. I later married a doctor at 27. What's the point? Just because someone else's life doesn't meet your moral expectations they are automatically a dope-headed, drugged up, gold digging whore? My oldest daughter is an award-winning porn star and exotic dancer, it's nothing I'm exactly thrilled with, but she's now 25, will being retiring next year, married to a good guy who teaches at an elementary school, owns two homes in two different states, and has 3 cars, and she will be graduating with Honors this spring. I'm willing to bet that half of you are living double standards and are supporting the women and men of this industry you're so apt to disgrace and seed guilt on when many of them are truly sweet girls with their heads on straight while the others are victims of life and social class. That doesn't make them murderers. There are evil people in every corner of life, just as they are good people. Get over the fucking stereotyping.

    Plenty of innocent people are arrested in good faith every year because the police and DA did their best job. It's very easy to do in the right circumstances and it happens more than we want to believe it happens. According to this Corrections (Seiter) textbook, it’s now believed that every career officer will make at least 1 false arrest, with 12% of those arrested falsely convicted and wrongly imprisoned for a period of 6 months. There's a whole lot of officers out there. There are around avg of 687,000 officers in America alone. If you broke career down to a period of 25 years, you'd have ‭an avg 82,440‬ people being falsely convicted and serving at least 6 months in prison. That's around 3,298 people per year and 9 per day. According to the state bar of Mississippi, 195,000 people are convicted and sent to prison each year. They statistically assume that .05% of those 195,000 convictions are wrong. That's 9,750 wrongful convictions per year. If 9,750 people are wrongfully convicted each year, but only 159 people were exonerated in 2015 and 2016, then less than 2% of wrongfully convicted are able to clear their name. The math is worse for wrongly convicted murderers and rapists, and they have it the worst when trying to clear their name because of human error and ego.

    I honestly don't know what to believe, because she did do bad things when she was young and we all most likely have done regretful things in our past its just hers was a larger guilt of being a stripper, yes some strippers are women who have nothing else to do so they become manipulative "whores", but some cannot get other professions for other reasons some people have no other choice to be able to have money so i think its unfair how she was found guilty for being a stripper, but she did have other reasons like being a cheater and the other notes and proof, i feel like also he would've put he was "gay" on the note to his family if it was true, homophobic or not he most likely would want them to know if he was gone and couldn't tell them his self, what do you think?

      Even in trials when someone is truly innocent, Brady requires that a suspect be named. Attorneys will often name the next closest individual to the victim. Though I feel she is guilty despite lackluster evidence, the blame for turning it over on the father needs to be aimed at the law.

    parents who provide good guidance, and are involved in their children's lives, even when they become adults, help them dodge toxic people. Telling children in the West: "you are 18 years old now, go solve your problems on your own without sharing them with us", leads to the children drowning in many problems without guidance, and bad company, and being ashamed of asking for help.

    I suspect she was guilty - however there was a shadow of a doubt - For a guilty conviction there can be no shadow of a doubt - just was not enough evidence. I don't think she should have been convicted. I felt very sorry for her husband but mostly for Kent and his parents she did seem to cause heartache wherever she went willingly or not willingly. She did clean up her life - Did her husband help her to clean up or did she clean up on her own? If he did help her then I suspect she was manipulating him as well.
