ELisa Baker is still up to her grifting ways even in prison. Not only is she still denying that she had anything to do with 10-year-old Zahra Baker’s death but now she says she’s appealing her conviction for the death and dismemberment of her step-daughter. Elisa Baler is believed to have killed Zahra before dismembering her body then reporting her to the police as missing.
Now ELisa Baker is still trying to get someone, anyone to believe her lies. She claims that she was only given 15 minutes to agree to the guilty plea which saw her go to jail for 18 years for Zahra’s murder. Worst of all she’s still acting like she actually cares about Zahra…
From her cell in a North Carolina prison Elisa Baker, 47, told The Daily Telegraph she still keeps a photo of the smiling 10-year-old inside her locker.
“Why would she haunt me? I was a good mamma,” she told the newspaper.
No you weren’t. Good mama’s don’t deal drugs and abuse their step-children and they especially don’t mutilate them and try to cover up their murder. Sadly it could only take her convincing the right person to believe her lies in order to arrange her freedom.
Vic man killed partner’s son, court told
Remains have been found at the home of the stepfather of missing teenager Gary Adams
Murder charge ends mother’s agony of doubt
Melbourne monster John Xypolitos (57) has pleaded not guilty to murdering and dismembering his 17 year old stepson Gary Adams on December 5, 2003. The court has heard that Xypolitos hit Gary in the head two or three times with a hammer, then placed his body in a paddling pool. He then casually went into the kitchen and prepared dinner. The next day, after Gary’s mum Joanne Adams left for work, Xypolitos proceeded to dismember Gary’s body with a hacksaw. The prosecutor alleges that Xypolitos then bagged up various parts of Gary’s body and proceeded to distribute them around several dump sites in the Melbourne area. He then left the rest of Gary’s body in the backyard of his parents’ house in Hughesdale, where police later discovered the boy’s bones. Oh, how lovely. So that his parents can see what a rotten scoundrel and murderous bastard their son has become.
Police excavate the backyard in search of Gary’s body
Xypolitos had the gall to plead not guilty to the charges of murder, claiming he killed Gary in “self-defence”, after the boy lunged at him with a screwdriver. However, the judge and jury are likely to sway the other way. You see, dear readers, evidence pointed to the fact that Gary and his stepfucker had a somewhat strained relationship. The steps he took in disposing of Gary’s body were calculated and deliberate, and not the actions of a man who was remorseful about accidentally killing his stepson while “defending” himself. He had been planning this for some time.
Joanne Adams was understandably heartbroken that her partner had killed her son. He had lied to her about her son’s whereabouts and discouraged her from calling the police. She did indeed call the police, 4 days later, when Xypolitos wasn’t home. Gary had left signs that he had indeed vanished rather quickly, such as leaving a plate of half-eaten food in his room and leaving behind a backpack that he took with him everywhere.

Xypolitos’ lawyer still maintains that he was defending himself. The trial continues.
Rest in Peace, Gary
Elisa Baker speaks from prison about murder of 10-year-old Zahra:
A little over a week ago The Sheen Cow Elisa Baker gave an exclusive interview to Charlotte, NC news station WSOC. It was the first time she had spoken publicly about Zahra Baker’s death since her conviction. It’s unfathomable to me some of the crap she spewed in the interview. You can see the entire interview on the above link.
Baker says that Zahra died from a stomach bug. I’m assuming by stomach bug she means Zahra swallowed a scorpion or something because children don’t die from stomach bugs unless they’ve been left unattended for days at a time. She says that her husband (ex?) and Zahra’s father, Adam Baker, was the one who decided to dismember Zahra’s body. This is how much of a liar Elisa Baker is. She said that she didn’t think it was strange that Adam allegedly dismembered Zahra’s body because she thought it may have been an Aboriginal tradition. Adam Baker is from Australia but I have never heard that he has Aboriginal ancestry and he sure doesn’t look it. Aussie may have to back me up on this but I’m pretty sure the Aborigines do not dismember their dead in any kind of ritual.
“I thought it was maybe a strange ritual that he done. For all I know the Aborigines… I don’t know. I regret not telling sooner. I regret not calling 911. But people do make mistakes,” said Baker.
There’s a difference between making mistakes and trying to bamboozle investigators with one of the worst acts of subterfuge in recorded history.
This article also finally tells us, or me anyway, why police believe that Adam Baker was not involved in Zahra’s death. They say that the cell phone records put him 20 miles away from where Zahra was killed and her body dismembered and witnesses place him at work at the time of the crime. Adam Baker was said to have been working for two weeks straight and had not even seen his daughter at that time and was unaware that his daughter was dead.
Getting back to Sheen Cow her behavior in this and other criminal cases leads me to believe that she is a grifter. People like her will tell lies no matter how unbelievable as long as one person believes them so they can take advantage of that person. With this interview I believe that Elisa Baker is looking for her next victim.
10 more years: With the Zahra sentence, Elisa Baker will serve 26 years:
Yesterday in US Federal Court Elisa Baker was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison on charges of illegally distributing prescription drugs. Baker is the woman responsible for the death and dismemberment of 10-year-old Zahra Baker. If any good news can be taken from yesterday’s verdict it’s that this new sentence will be served after she completes her current 18 year state sentence for Zahra’s death. Currently it stands that it will be 26 years before Baker can be released from prison.
Elisa Baker was no penny-ante drug dealer either. She was dealing in massive amounts of illegal prescription drugs…
According to court documents, Baker obtained the prescription drugs through multiple prescriptions from physicians and from other unidentified sources in Catawba County. She conspired with others to distribute and possess with intent to distribute the controlled substances oxycodone, hydrocodone and alprazolam. She possessed about 12,000 units of oxycodone, 10,000 units of hydrocodone, and 29,000 units of alprazolam.
Hospital pharmacies don’t carry that much on hand. During the sentencing hearing the prosecution made it known that Baker was dealing the drugs out of Zahra’s bedroom and that she brought drug addicts into the home where Zahra was living at the time in Hickory, North Carolina.
Her defense blamed her getting into the drug trade because she became a drug addict while suffering from fibromyalgia. I know that’s going to piss a lot of people off who read this site. For those of you who may not know my wife suffers horribly from fibro and has been given horrible treatment by certain doctors who believe she is only drug seeking. Yet my wife is far from being a drug addict and has definitely never sold drugs out of the home that we shared with our children.
In my opinion Elisa Baker is nothing more than a grifter and a con artist and I still contend that Zahra’s death was part of some kind of money scheme. Her alleged defense is just another con in a long line of cons.
It’s unfortunate that the evidence in Zahra’s death couldn’t support the death penalty because if anyone deserved it it’s this conniving trailer trash slag.
Zahra Baker’s skull identified:
One thing that I don’t think I ever posted about the Zahra Baker story was that last year investigators found a skull that they believed belonged to murdered 10-year-old Zahra Baker. I never posted this in case the skull turned out not to be hers. Today it was announced that the skull was in fact Zahra’s.
For those of you who may not remember Zahra was reported missing from her home in Hickory, North Carolina with her father Adam Baker and her wicked stepmother Elisa Baker. As it turned out she was murdered and dismembered by Elisa Baker. Baker pleaded guilty to second degree murder and was sentenced to only 14-18 years. Zahra was a cancer survivor who had also lost her hearing and one of her legs who by all reports loved everyone around her. She most certainly did not deserve the fate that befell upon her.
Unfortunately with the skull being identified as Zahra’s forensics were not able to determine exactly how she was killed.
I can only hope that with this it can help bring some kind of closure and peace to the people who truly loved her.
Elisa Baker. She puts the hillbilly in Hillbilly Heroin.
More time could be added to Elisa Baker’s prison sentence:
While we were on hiatus some news came about the Sheen-Cow herself, Elisa Baker. For those of you who may not remember Baker pleaded guilty to the murder of her step-daughter Zahra Baker. Zahra’s dismembered remains were found in the North Carolina woods while Baker tried to make it look like an abduction. Some parts of Zahra were never found. Baker only received 15 years for her plea deal.
Back in January Baker pleaded guilty to prescription drug charges. According to a news channel local to me that sentence could be handed down this coming January. For those charges she’s looking at 20 years. More time than she got for killing the step-daughter that loved her unquestionably.
That’s fucked up.
I'm innocent I tells ya. Mooooo.
Elisa Baker insists she didn’t do it:
How’s this for gall? Elisa Baker, aka the Sheen-Cow, who pleaded guilty in the murder of her step-daughter Zahra Baker, is now saying from jail that she didn’t do it. She’s basically saying that she pleaded guilty because she felt that the prosecutors had enough evidence to convict her. Then why the hell didn’t she make a no-contest plea instead?
Some more lies from Bakers is that she claims that Zahra was ‘the light of her eyes’. She claims that Zahra died from a stomach virus and that Adam Baker was the one who dismembered his own daughter’s body. That’s a load of crap. If Zahra died of natural causes they could have just called 911 and an autopsy would have cleared them of any wrong doing. But what do you expect from a pathological liar and cheat?
She also allegedly said that the “man makes the decisions and you don’t argue.” Does anyone believe anything that vomits forth from her gaping maw? The hell she was some timid kept woman following the iron clad directions of her man.
In my opinion Elisa Baker is a liar, a grifter and a master manipulator and now she’s trying to manipulate the media into making her a sympathetic victim. The problem is that no one is buying it.
Adam to Elisa Baker: “You filled her life with lies”:
As I’m sure you’ve heard by now Elisa Baker, aka Sheen-Cow, has pleaded guilty to second degree murder charges in the death of her step-daughter, 10-year-old Zahra Baker. She also pleaded to bigamy, obstruction of justice and six other charges. With that plea the bovine one was sentenced only to 14-18 years.
In my honest and yet amateur opinion I believe the plea deal was struck because of the Casey Anthony outcome. Like the Anthony case there was no definite cause of death for Zahra and I believe prosecutors struck the deal in order to prevent Baker from walking. I’m not saying I’m happy with the deal but I can see why they did it.
What I was mostly surprised to find out is that Adam Baker had nothing to do with his daughter’s death and dismemberment. I know I’ve been among those who swore that he had some involvement but according to police cell phone records and witness testimony prove that he had no involvement. I’m a big enough man to admit when I’m wrong and here I make my personal apology to Adam Baker. The only thing he is guilty of is making a poor choice in a romantic partner and I’m sure he’s been regretting that decision for a while. Especially since not all of Zahra has been found yet…
“No other remains were found,” Lt. Bobby Grace, with Hickory Police Department said. “We did not find her head, right arm, hands, right leg or upper left leg.”
I wouldn’t be surprised if the Sheen-Cow was using the location of Zahra’s remains as a future bargaining chip in regards to her sentence. The grifting continues.
Change of venue motion filed in Zahra Baker case:
Speaking of the Sheen-Cow her lawyer has filed for a change of venue for her trial in the murder of Zahra Baker.
Her lawyer says that the cow “cannot obtain a fair and impartial trial” in Catawba County and that coverage in area newspapers and comments on the web that “reveal a deep prejudice against” Elisa Baker.
Normally I would say that since this case has garnered international attention that moving the trial would not be a winning strategy. Jose Baez and the Casey Anthony trial proved that it might and I really hope this doesn’t go this way.
Then again the Sheen-Cow isn’t even remotely attractive so I doubt she would get the sympathy that some gave Casey Anthony.
Zahra’s Father Says He Wants Justice For Her:
Adam Baker, the father of murdered and dismembered 10-year-old Zahra Baker, says he wants justice for his daughter’s death. He also wants his former main squeeze, Elisa Baker (aka the Sheen-Cow) to get what she deserves.
While I’m all for the Sheen-Cow being sent to the farm upstate so to speak if Adam Bake wants real justice he needs to only do one thing. Confess.
I have no doubt that Adam Baker has some knowledge of what happened to his daughter and probably some involvement. Cut your losses for your daughter. Go to police and tell them everything. Yes, you will probably go to jail but if you’re not the actual killer you need to do whatever it takes to see that Elisa Baker gets all that she deserves.
Thanks to my lovely and talented wife Jade for the tip.
