Pamela Smart Still Making Headlines Decades After Her Husband’s Murder

Even all these years later, I mean the murder of Gregg Smart happened in 1990, people can’t stop talking about New Hampshire’s own, Pamela Smart.  With countless books written about her and movies that have been made about the crime, it’s shocking that she can still make headlines like in the entertainment section recently.


The controversy continues


Without a doubt, it is Derry, New Hampshire’s most infamous crime.  It had everything, sex, teachers, good-looking young people, a teenaged hitman, and a salacious trial.  At the center of it all was Pam Smart, who with her degree in communications had aspired to be on television but all hopes of that were dashed when her husband was murdered.  She had an affair with a student who admitted to being the trigger man.  He and two of his friends were convicted of plotting to kill Gregg Smart and all three were sentenced to prison.


Why is the trigger man free?


The one question I keep asking myself about this case is why is she the only one still in prison for the murder of her husband?  William Flynn, only 16 at the time pulled the trigger yet Pam Smart remains locked up while he was granted parole and is out.  So are the others that confessed to helping with the crime.  They have all admitted their guilt.  Perhaps what keeps Pam Smart behind bars is her adamant claim to being innocent.  But if you were innocent isn’t that what you would do? Personally, I might have to lie after all these years just say whatever. Smart still claims she had nothing to do with the planning of her husband’s murder despite being found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. In my opinion, she didn’t pull the trigger and she has served more time than the trigger man. She should get parole. Everyone else involved in the murder is free, why? Well, they admitted guilt while Pamela has not. If you were innocent would you lie to be free? Makes me wonder!
