Convicted Murderer Lisa Michelle Lambert Paid $35K by State of PA in Lawsuit Rape Settlement


Only in America does a convicted for life murderer get awarded a $35K settlement. 34 Lisa Michelle Lambertyear old Lisa Michelle Lambert had accused administrators at the State Correctional Institution at Cambridge Springs of allegedly raping and assaulting her.

In a 1996 lawsuit, Lisa Michelle Lambert, 34, accused administrators at the State Correctional Institution at Cambridge Springs of doing nothing to prevent the assaults. She also alleged that she was videotaped during a strip search.

Lambert alleged that the assaults happened while she was serving her life sentence for the 1991 murder of 16-year-old Laurie Show, a Lancaster high school sophomore. (Philadelphia Daily News)

If the name “Lisa Michelle Lambert” sound familiar it should. It was her stalking case and the murder of 16 year old Laurie Show that gave rise to the anti-stalking laws in Pennsylvania and was portrayed in the TV show in 2000, ”The Stalking of Laurie Show”.

What makes this story more disturbing is that the $35K was nothing more than a nuisance payment to make all of this go away.  Two wrongs never make a right. There was obvious wrong doing by guards; however, murder usually trumps assault. The jurors might be told of Lambert’s conviction. Might? What, that she stalked and murdered and innocent girl? As Lisa Michelle Lambert takes college classes offered by BU in Mass prison, Laurie Show is still dead.

Lambert’s lawyer, Angus Love of the Pennsylvania Institutional Law Project, called the settlement amount “low.” He said his client was concerned that jurors might be told about her conviction which “could have poisoned the minds for [her] plea for compassion for the sexual assaults she suffered.”

In addition, he said, Lambert did not want to “fan the flames” of the publicity that has surrounded her case for years. She is now taking college classes offered by Boston University in the Massachusetts prison and “wants to put all this behind her,” Love said. (

      So she wants to “put all this behind her.”

      Does any faint sense of transgression at having murdered another girl impinge on her sensibilities? Or is responsibility for one’s actions limited to the elder generations?

      Maybe she and Joran van der Sloot are destined for each other….

    2. John Dorma on September 4th, 2007 12:34 pm

      She killed someone, for which she’s serving life in prison.

      Someone raped her, for which they will pay thirty-five thousand dollars.

      Trial, conviction, and sentence does still mean something under our rule of law.

    3. Miss-Underestimated on September 4th, 2007 1:57 pm

      I’ve read the story of Laurie Show, how terribly sad for Laurie and how deranged Lisa is. Maybe she should take the 35K and start a college scholarhip in Laurie’s name. Hey Lisa, did you ever think what your boyfriend did to Laurie and how you ended her life, you sick, sick creature.

    4. nurturer on September 4th, 2007 5:18 pm

      Those eyes looking pretty dead.

    5. compananzi on September 5th, 2007 12:03 am

      Lady justice is rightfully blind, thanks to some old dead guy for that. The guards are a poor model representation for the United states Penn. They bring shame and distrust to an already bankrupt system. Justice served twice.

    6. jennifer34 on September 5th, 2007 3:09 pm

      A scholarship in Laurie’s name would be a great idea, better yet, give it to Laurie’s family. (Not that they would want her filthy money)

      It should be a law that people in prison for murder should not be allowed to benefit financially in any way for any reason. They should be forced to give the money to charity and then see how many law suits they pursue. Bet they wouldn’t be near as interested.

      Boy, that is on wicked lookin’ thing! She
      looks like a cross between Leona Helmsley
      and Elvira Mistress of the Dark. I’d have
      to sleep with one eye open with that evil
      chick in the house.

      She’ll give ya a haircut,
      Lorena Bobbitt style!

      You all should educate yourself before commenting on a case you know nothing about.Laurie wrote her killer’s initials over and over with her own blood. No L or M but TB and BY several times. This case has been called “THE most prosicitorial misconduct in the English speaking world”.After Lisa’s release she was declared innocent but, that makes many high officials guilty.Anyway, I’m so tired of people’s ignorance it’s a shame. There was no hair,fiber,finger or footprint…no evidence placing her at the scene.She deserves not only that small amount of chumpchange but her freedom as well.Being kept in isolation and being repeatedly raped has nothing to do with Laurie’s death.Today one killer walks free,who had been charged with raping Laurie -it never went to court.He had raped several girls yet beat on Lisa. Tabitha the other killer schemes at new appeals.They were both booked all bruised and scratched because Laurie faught with all she had and managed to name her killers even in death with her blood. Lisa had not a single mark on her.Lisa studies and uses her time the best she can.For each of you who replied after just one year in prison your skin&look change.Prison pallor.After ten years she looks great.By the way the whole time she was out I was able to sleep and never once feared for my life. I feared for her.For the nuts that have to make a statement or do something crazy just for attention.Education. Didn’t you learn in kindergarden if you had nothing nice to say….and how important reading and education were?

    9. Jade Griffin on March 21st, 2008 11:23 am

      Tricia, it is *you* who needs to re-read the facts of this case. I have indeed educated myself before making or reading any of the above comments. She was not raped. Her accused ‘rapist’ was out of town on his honeymoon, for God’s sake! (Proven by a Marriage Certificate.) It’s just like OJ…the whole world framed OJ, right? Everyone in the whole state of California framed him just for the hell of it. Apparently, that is what Ms. Lambert is trying to make everyone believe, as if she is so beautiful & desirable that those damn cops just couldn’t keep their pants on! Please give me a break! And aside from the mountain of evidence against her, her very *character* proves she is cold-blooded. Someone who can look you in the eye & lie, with no remorse whatsoever for an innocent girl’s life, does not a poor, innocent, persecuted girl make. Ms. Lambert is obviously a master manipulator. No doubt she has used her feminine wiles & scary make-up job to win the affections of Lawrence Yunkin, Tabitha Buck, that creepy judge Dalzell & her masculine attorney, Tina Rainville. I only hope her little girl does not follow in her murderer mother’s footsteps. (Oh, that’s right…perhaps she was indeed the child of one of the many so-called ‘rapists’ from Pennsylvania police precincts far & wide, even though the DNA test proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that Yunkin is the father.) Ya see, Lisa, the truth will always out! So please, Tricia, find a worthy cause to support instead of being so obviously manipulated just like all her other supporters. You are in the minority, & for good reason. She’s using you. You gotta know that she is laughing at you, all the way to the bank!

    10. kiea27 on May 8th, 2008 9:03 am

      first thing first i think michelle should be locked up just as the rest of her gang,instead she was paid for “HER’ pain and suffering.what about laurie and her parents where is the justice.i mean none of us was there when she was murdered we could only know from what was found at the scene and what was told by michelle and her gang nobody is taking the blame for cutting laurie’s throat but somebody did it.and since they each pointing fingers she should have never been realesed my thing is the others had no reason to want laurie dead only michelle so why is she a free woman well i guess we will never know

    11. s forker on May 13th, 2008 10:32 am

      She should not be allowed to take any courses. Why she is never going to get out perhaps a course in laundry would be more beneficial. She killed a girl over a biyfriend. She belongs in a cell with no tv radio and only a bible for the rest of her life. It is odd how her accomplice ZMiss buck took her punishment and never said a word .At least hr chld will never know her.

    12. Lori on July 4th, 2008 8:46 am

      Being punished for ones crimes should not include rape. There are many facts that support both sides of the lisa lambert argument. what would she even do if she where released? i believe that lisa believes in her innocence. she wants to be absolved of this crime and has fought to do so to no avail. she came damn close though and when she was released she didn’t flee the country or hide from officials when they demanded her return to prison. only lisa, tabitha and lawrence know what really happened that day. it is unfortunate that the people we trust to see that justice is carried out in every facet of an investigation and sentencing are as untrustworthy as the bulk of you claim lisa is. a fair trial it was not, but that didn’t seem to matter.

    13. Q on December 24th, 2008 1:20 am

      Listen, as I read the story I figured out that Lisa hates the victim and she exceeded her limits, intended to harm her, weather things got out of control or not, there was a killng, she wanted to bully the victim and gathered those trashes into harming her, then this is the toll that never ends, for life!

      get it.

    14. N.Martin on February 16th, 2009 12:55 am

      I think that Michelle Lambert should be locked away for life in a tiny cell with no windows and no light. Definately no tv, radio etc. She is a cold blooded murderous reptile and deserves absolutely NOTHING good in this life.
      I only hope her child hasn’t inheritated any of her mothers evil genes

    15. lacey on April 22nd, 2009 9:56 pm

      First of all I think people who do not know all of the facts, should not comment. True the only people that know what happened all have different stories. Chances are the truth about what happened that day will never come out. The abuse and rape that happened in SCI Cambridge Springs is a fact. Look it up one guard was sentenced to jail time because of it. The only reason that only one guard was prosecuted is because the higher ranking guards who were involved as well needed a fall guy and helped set him up. Those are facts. Now whether you believe she manipulated the male guards or not the fact remains for any prison personel to have sexual contact with an inmate is considered rape. Why you ask its simple when someone is in jail they can not by law give concent to have sex. End of story. Whether we agree or disagree that it is rape in the typical context or not it still is. Now with all of this being said I am not here to argue her guilt or innocence. I will however state that all involved in her prosecution are the ones that caused even more pain to all involved by not following the letter of the law. This allowed Lisa to have her sentenced over turned once and trust me chances are due to that misconduct will eventually end up freeing her for good. That I think will be the biggest injustice of all.

    16. mercury on November 5th, 2009 4:34 pm

      The victim should have paid serious attention, when Lisa Lambert threatened her to death if she kept dating her boy friend,she should have noticed frightening face of her,if you watch the one hour program on tv, her face is too scary and vindictive, the victim paid with her dear life for this mistake

    17. Isabelle on November 19th, 2009 10:51 pm

      Lisa Michelle Lambert looks as evil as she is, and she should remain in jail and at some time have some remorse. She makes comments with the coldest tone and acts arrogant. She probably consented to sex with the guards in prison for some “privilege” that she still keeps seeking after all she’s done to an innocent girl. Now she will end up an old lady in jail, what a wast of her life, all because she could not control the evil within her……………very sad.

    18. Jeff Biscoe on November 28th, 2009 7:16 am

      I had met Lisa and knew her for a short time after her release before going back to prison.
      The photo and time served iam sure hasnt done her justice she was a very pretty woman.Iam neither judge or jury but I almost was sentenced to five years when attacked by three men.I broke the first mans jaw was charged with assault,the were clean cut fellows Iam not,Thankfully an unknown to me witness came forward on my behalf and proved it was self defense.Like my case the only ones who really know what happened were involved in this tragic murder of a young woman.I can only hope that someday the truth will come out if it was Lisa or someone else.These things effect the familys on both sides,a lost life,a daughter in prison and a child without a mother its very sad.

    19. Jeff Biscoe on November 28th, 2009 12:47 pm

      I would also like to say Iam not defending Lisa,I want to make that clear!She was a friend of someone I knew for years and I really didnt care for Lisa,s personality.I never got a good vibe from her and she was not someone I trusted or liked.I beleive in an eye for an eye,I will never say anything else about this because I dont know the facts.I just hope anyone involved is locked away so they can never harm anyone again!

    20. Randy on December 28th, 2009 8:00 pm

      C’mon guys. Murderer or not, I’d do her, and so would most of you other men. What a waste of a gorgeous woman to be in prison.

    21. Bev on February 18th, 2010 4:02 am

      Her eyes are cold and dead….they gave me chills when I first looked at her picture. She is a schitzophrenic sociopath…a very dangerous combination.

    22. Ron Landry on March 16th, 2010 5:32 pm

      I guess that would make her a whore as well as a murderer. Some people just have no morals and this woman is a lifer psychopath. Too bad she hasn’t gotten the chair. And a good beating. But I guess we’ll have to settle for a rape.

    23. Autla on April 16th, 2010 1:49 am

      She looks like a maniac and is behind bars where she belongs.She should have gotten the chair instead of life.What a waste of life over a man who raped another woman that she chose to stay with and kill instead of leaving a bad relationship.

    24. Autla on April 16th, 2010 2:00 am

      If my man raped another woman as a woman his silly days would be over with cause no man who cheats or rapes another woman is worth investing time with.We can clearly see how sick and twisted some people are to accept this type of behavior instead of leaving a bad relationship for a better one.

    25. Autla on April 16th, 2010 2:03 am

      Lisa Lamberts silly days are over with behind bars instead of her ex bf silly days being over with for cheating on her.He is roaming free and has another gf now.

    26. grey on June 9th, 2010 3:22 pm

      evil women turn me on shes hot id do her and so would any other guy

      beautiful women should not be in prison killing is a natural part of life in the animal world and in the human world

    27. DeeZ-NutZ on June 29th, 2010 6:41 pm

      I can’t believe the state did this. This cow was always saying every swinging johnson in podunk Lancaster Pa was raping her. She’s a liar and a manipulator…and thats the NICE things I can say about her.

    28. Justice on July 2nd, 2010 6:41 pm

      Lets not forget LAWRENCE who made the deal with the police, one of which was sentenced for sexually abusing his step daughter!! His hair, earing was found in the apartment, pink bag with his bloody jeans and size 12 bloody trainers which went missing. LETs not forget LAWRENCE motives (RAPE) and fear of a pregnancy!! OPS, that was meant to be a secret which only few knew. LAWRENCE 12 years was not long enough! All of you should have had LIFE SENTENCES! The death sentence for the one who used the knife.

    29. Sara on July 10th, 2010 4:24 am

      I was cheated on when pregnant by my boyfriend, with a girl who lives/still lives upstairs she knew about me…she knew i was pregnant…..I know how michelle felt. and her situation was probably even worse than mine…Rape/whatever. BUUUT If anyone deserved prison for life..was definatly the guy.

    30. Melissa on August 9th, 2010 9:02 am

      This girl is ridiculous. Did Laurie Show get money for the rape that she received from Michelle’s boyfriend? No, she received death! Now this girl sits in prison while we take care of her and she also gets 35K!!! What a judicial system we have! I pray that this girl doesn’t get released and that little chunk of money won’t last her anywhere near as long as the memories of what she did to Laurie.

    31. Ryan on September 14th, 2010 1:37 pm

      First of all, I’ve studied the case a little bit and she tried every legal recourse she could think of to get herself out of this mess but in fact she admitted her role in the whole thing on a episode of 20/20 where she said and I quote, “I said we should just pull her hair!” Not one time did she show any remorse for her role in the crime and the look on her face went from as Barabra Walters reported, from warm watery tears to an icy cold stare when the reporter asked her about Laurie’s final words to her mother just before she died, “MICHELLE did it!” Only knowing one person with the “Michelle” in her name, it was pretty clear the young girl was talking about Lisa. It’s pretty obivous that some of you are more educated about the case than I am but it’s pretty clear that she organized the whole thing and that her friends took it farther than they probably should have but Lisa made absolutely no attempt to stop it when she thought it was going too far and that makes her (acc. to Pennslyvania Law) guilty by association. You can’t fire a gun, and then try to jump in front of the bullet when you realize that it’s about to kill someone. By that time, the bullet has already done its deadly job!

    32. james clark on October 15th, 2010 4:04 pm

      She not guilty so ever one need to leve her alone she be out with in the next five years if any one want to know more call or text me 270-320-4799

    33. Kim on November 16th, 2010 5:04 pm

      I had met Lisa throuhg a friend the time she was released, and I also had the oppertunity to read the transcript from the tral. and from what I read there was no evidence against Lisa but there was plenty against Lawrence and Tabitha. I honestly feel sorry for Laurie and he family as a mother I could never imagine finding my daughter like that. And my prayers have been with Mrs.Show since the day I heard of this story. And I can say that even though the look on Lisa’s face looks very evil, she is actually a very loving person. She would come to myhouse and run and play with my daughters who were around 3 and 7 and they adored Lisa. They say kids can sence the bad in people but my girls seen only the good in her. So as it has been said no one but Tabitha Lawrence and Lisa will truely know what happened that horible day so I feel if people aint going around bashing the other two then why in the hell wont they leave Lisa alone. And Trish if you ever see this contact me

    34. Gwen on December 9th, 2010 9:08 pm

      I KNOW she KNEW what she was doing,wehther it was in rage or not-no excuse.why do people murder.The teen was date raped-stupid assholes can;t keep their hormones in check.Good person or not,Lisa Michelle should NOT be able to take classes for free.

    35. Yessir on December 10th, 2010 12:17 am

      She deserves everything that happens to her. I wish she would get sodomized with a tree branch.

    36. Greg N on December 10th, 2010 11:58 pm

      Tricia and Lacey…you are both vile PIGS. Wake up you idiots.

    37. b. smith on December 12th, 2010 1:58 am

      Any an all parties associated in a murder should be given the death penalty. For all of you bleeding hearts out there you should stop an think what if it had been your child who was savagely murdered by that monster, something tells me that you wouldn’t be so quick to defend her then. Now that being said I believe that rape is a horrible injustice an any parties should be held accountable an punished. I do not think however that she should have been given any compensation for it, this women lost her rights when she stripped that child Laurie of her right to live.

    38. Teresa Bunch on December 12th, 2010 6:11 pm

      What gets me is that she’s getting a free college education. What a reward for murder….35K, free college education, a bed, food, tv and other rewards for her crime. Wow. Laurie isn’t getting this where she’s at.

    39. Stacy on December 13th, 2010 11:35 am

      This Lisa girl is pure evil! She should NEVER be released. She killed an innocent girl over some low class loser boyfriend who is long gone. What a stupid thing to do! This girl deserves no pity. What about the girl that died? I choose to focus on her instead of this cold hearted bitch who sits in prison and who is very much alive. She should be the one in the grave, not Laurie who did nothing. I feel so sad for her poor Mother Hazel who was robbed of her only child. Let this ugly bitch Lisa rot for life in her cell. She is still alive. Laurie wasn’t so lucky! Don’t ever forget that people. This girl doesn’t deserve your support!

    40. melissa on December 13th, 2010 5:09 pm

      I just watched Deadly Women last night with this case on it and they interviewed her mother, which walked in right after the assault took place, her daughter was still responsive and when asked who did this to her, laurie said michelle. also this lawrence guy raped both girls, lisa michells is just the stupid one who chose to stay with him, the fact that he looked at another woman is what drove her insane. i dont know why she is complaining bout the guards raping her, she sure didnt mind it when lawrence did. and for those that defend her, you all should be sitting in jail with her!!

    41. Dr. John S. Sultzbaugh on December 17th, 2010 2:57 am

      Stewart Dalzell was anything BUT blind-folded (as Justice is traditionally displayed) when he decided to rewrite the law in his own image. In defining reality to suit oneself, he is in the same league with L.M. Lambert, which may explain his bias towards her. Why doesn’t someone ask how 1st and 2nd degree murder convictions can result in identical sentences? Lambert so clouded the issues that no one notes the one defendant who admitted responsibility and expressed remorse. If “the wheels of justice grind exceedingly slow but exceedingly fine,” they had bloody-well better keep on grinding here!

    42. Dr. John S. Sultzbaugh on December 17th, 2010 4:19 am

      Had I read “Tricia’s” pronouncement on the Lambert case, I would have been certain to include her visions among those produced by whoever define reality to suit themselves. I HAD to acquaint myself with the facts – I taught them in class (in the neighboring county) for some 13 years – and I don’t know from WHENCE Tricia’s fantastic tale arises. And yes, Kimberly, Lambert had even displayed nurturing capabilities before she and Yunkin pushed each other’s BAD buttons, so she could easily rewrap herself in the mantle of a matron … which absolves her of nothing. Yet if she could charm Stewart Dalzell, no one lies beyond her spell.

    43. Benji on December 21st, 2010 11:00 pm


      Tabitha went to the front door to ask for Hazel because Laurie did not really know her…so in this breif meeting Laurie learned enough to write not only her first initial but her last as well…Find it hard to believe that Ms Buck introduced herself during the altercation….

    44. SouthenBelle on January 1st, 2011 10:28 pm

      I hope the grandparents never let that psychotic B@#$& see and damage that innocent child she had. And as far as the Jr. psycho whore who wants to defend her (tricia perez ) Why would her mother lie her Laurie told her mother the Gutterskank did it while dying in her arms. Evidence like that you can’t fake. Do your simple mind really think her mother doesn’t want to bring the right people to justice. P.S. I wish she had done it in Virginia or Texas we know how to take care of TRASH

    46. Olivia on January 2nd, 2011 5:40 am

      There is absolutely no way that Lisa Michelle Lambert went to Laurie’s house with only the intention of cutting her hair. On several other occasions she attacked her and caused physical harm to her, so her anger and violence would naturally only escalate. I find it interesting that on 20/20 she said to Barbara Walters she only suggested they “pull” her hair, but in court she claimed she only suggested that they CUT her hair. Much more than hair pulling was intended and that is evident in the elaborate plan orchestrated to lure the mother away from the home. Lisa Michelle and all other parties knew that they were going to seriously injure if not kill Laurie. This girl is a pathological liar, manipulator and criminally insane. The fact that she played with one persons children means nothing. Children are young, and easily tricked. They are afterall CHILDREN. It is clear from the events that lead up to Laurie Shows death, that Lisa Michelle Lambert was an evil, sick, maniacal individual who was destined to cause harm/death to someone and unfortunately for Laurie she was involved with the wrong people.

    47. Olivia on January 2nd, 2011 5:43 am


      When I stated Laurie was involved with the wrong people, I in no way meant that to imply any fault on her behalf. She was an innocent girl who was the victim in all of these events and by no means did anything wrong. I only meant she was involved with the wrong people in a sense that young girls do not always make the best choices with whom they chose to hang out with because they are always willing to see the best in people. Laurie Show was a good, decent young girl and girls such as her tend to believe the best about others even when it’s not deserved. That is all.

    48. doloresd on January 11th, 2011 1:38 am

      Lisa Lambert is guilty as HELL. Lambert had the motive to kill. She beat Laurie up before she ordered her killing. In order for Lamberts’ accusations to be true 100 people from the prosecutor’s side would have had to lie and conspire to “frame” Lisa. Also they would have had to take Laurie’s body from the funeral home and put it back in her home where she was killed to plant the “fake” evidence. Anyone who believes anything Lisa Lambert says is a moron who doesn’t have a brain.

      Just watched this movie on LMN or lifetime . WHEN will girls learn not to screw with another girls boy. Just like Shanda sharer . THis Laurie made a grave mistake . IF the movie was true to life , laurie KNEW Michelle was psycho over her boyfriend , she KNEW Michelle still wanted him YET she wanted him so much she ignored the warning signs and started seeing him. I am NOT saying its right that they killed her , my point is if more girls stayed AWAY from the boy (or in shandas case ,girl) . THis will stop happening . In both cases, the girls refused to stay away from the object of jealousy and paid with their lives.

    51. vette on January 18th, 2011 4:03 pm

      I have this to say…..I watched the movie on this girl Michelle Lambert……I will tell you this she is one twisted and crazy girl. Why would anyone put up with a boyfriend like that, and take him back for all the crap he caused ??? You know , I am not defending the girl , but I will tell you what if she had any brains at all she would of let things go and left that cheater, and moved on…I think this is all like a sick turn on for her, and as far as Im concerned , this girl deserved everything she got and as for those who are defending her, open your eyes ppl, u know if you were the one that did this to her you would be dead too….Need I say more..

    52. vette on January 18th, 2011 4:08 pm

      Just one more thing I have to add…I do believe that in this case where she got 35k, I think that it was all manipulation, I am sure she set this all up…Like the other crap she did before she ended up behind bars…Hey Michelle, you are one sick person and you deserve all you got…To all your fans , Is Michelle manipulating you from behind locked prison door….You guys need a reality check.

    53. ladyhawk on February 2nd, 2011 12:30 am

      I really don’t give a damn if Michelle was raped or not in prison. She deserves that a lot more. Hurray for jailhouse justice!!

      I feel for Hazel Show, and I can clearly see the conspiracy around the original trial (even a blind monkey without a brain can see it); pretty, popular girl is being victimized by mean old dead girl. And the other witnesses. Then the judge ignores the law in favor of letting the pretty girl do whatever she wants. Now she’s forced to spend her time in mean old smelly prison.

      No, I am not on her side. According to the case as I understand it to be there is no question that Lisa Michelle Lambert is a cold blooded murderer. I’m just pointing out that…well, read that again. You’ll see that I manage to hit both points of view. Even if one is deranged.

      All of that said, rape is never an appropriate punishment. As someone who has had to rebuild my life from that I don’t think it’s part of the ‘justice system’ in this case (no matter how absent the ‘justice’ portion has been in some parts.) As for the payment she received I agree that it should not have gone to her. How about putting it into a college trust for her daughter, or putting it toward the therapy her daughter may end up needing if her friends find out her mother’s an insane murderer? Or pay it to BU for her college education? Or maybe make her pay for her prison stay-some states do that.

      @ lisa
      You say girls should stay away from others boyfriends? Why dont these so-called girlfriends take their murderous anger out on the boyfriend who cheated? And then Lambert gets 35k for a supposed rape? That money should be given to Hazel Show for her pain and suffering that will last a lifetime.

    57. Justice on May 28th, 2011 10:32 pm

      Death is to good for her!! There is nothing I hate more than some “Bully Bitch” like this c***. It’s sad that our system pays a cow like this anything. Instead courts should be giving all the $ she had or makes,& previously owned possessions to the family to sell for restitution. My wish for her is to be (EDIT). So she might learn first hand & worse what she did to Laurie. As for the other white trash…Justice is sometimes slow & swift but it’s Steady!!! May Justice be served the wrath of God be upon them ,especially that Douche!! Oh & F*** all of you supporters of this immoral bitch…& F U twice the Dumbass that let the bitch around her own kids!!! Now I’ve heard everything…Dumbass!!

    58. Justice on May 28th, 2011 10:52 pm

      Kimberly, social services should be called and your children should be taken away from you. You are ignorant, welfare, Jerry Springer TRASH!!! you should be rotting in jail beside her for letting your children romp around your yard with a MURDERER!!

      I have followed this case from the beginning and I hope that Lisa Michelle Lambert is NEVER released from prison. So she she was raped.
      According to her, she has been raped so many times. Even by a copy who was on his honeymoon at the time. She is 1 in demand broad. If Lambert is ever realeased from prison, I hope she is ordered to live with Hazel Show. Then we will see what true justice is. I also hope she will do another interview with Mike Watkiss. Only a few minutes into an interview with him, she was wanting the cameras turned off. Way to go Mike. Lambert tried to blame the murder on her friend Tabitha, and “Tabby” as she called her will also rot in prison. Good riddence to both of you. Too bad Lambert’s boyfriend, Lawrence, isn’t serving life too. He is just as guilty. Lambert’s daughter has no chance at all. She will inherit Lambert’s and Junkin’s (sp?) genes and probably one day will be beside her mother in prison. So hang in there Michelle. Your punishment is far from over.

    62. kerri on May 21st, 2012 9:29 pm

      let her rot in jail where she belongs

    63. Kate on November 24th, 2012 4:52 pm

      I don’t feel sorry for her. The only thing I feel sorry about is that she got $35K for being a bully and a murderer. In any other country she’d be whipped and spat at and no one would care. She deserves every horrible thing she gets and should be a humiliated for it. She should be an example as to what should happen to a person when they bully, stalk, and murder others for pieces of trash like that horrid boyfriend of hers. I hope she gets beat in jail like the dirty whore scumbag that she is.

    64. Rik on January 28th, 2013 1:28 pm

      I worked where this women was held please save your sympathy for one who deserves it. If you could look in her eyes you would know to just stay from this killer.

    65. Michelle on February 7th, 2013 5:43 am

      I find it funny that the (very few) people who are defending Michelle listed a bunch of nonsense and rumors. Gosh, they’re probably the same people who fall for Nigerian scams claiming they’ve one millions.

      That aside, this case haunts me. I feel so bad got Hazel to walk into that horrific scene. The last words Laurie was able to say was “Michelle did it” in a whisper voice. But the last thing Laurie did was mouth “I love you” to her mother two times. By this point she could speak anymore and was only able to move her lips. That’s horrific. I’m so glad Hazel was able to tell her daughter she loved her before she died. Actually her exact words “”I love you, your dad loves you and God will take care of you”" — Gives me shivers, imagine having to craddle your blood-soaked child, knowing they were moments away from dying.

    66. Sarah on June 5th, 2013 12:32 pm

      I actually know Lambert’s daughter. she is very nice and hates what her mother and father did. shes tried her best to not be like them.

      I have an idea. Award her the money then make her compensate Laurie’s Mom for her pain and suffering. Yeah. Go me.God says an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. If she had not put herself there in the first place these things would not be happening.

    69. NotAnArmChairDetective on February 22nd, 2014 11:49 pm

      Seriously people. This sociopath and I think even that word is too nice a description for her has attempted to manipulate the entire system. I cannot believe Ms. Rainville is an attorney. She sounds and looks as crazy as her client. I cannot believe there are still people that could give any credibility to this warped woman! She’s accused everyone barring the Pope & the President of raping her illiterate, white trash arse. Supposedly, EVERY male she has ever come into contact with has raped her. Friends, family, boyfriends, police officers, prison guards etc. To award this woman a settlement is just ludicrous! I believe if this woman was ever set free, she would absolutely at some point kill again. She says she takes no responsibility in Lauries death, alas she was the only one w/a motive and had repeatedly stalked, harassed and assaulted the poor victim. Bottom line, even if the other two are culpable, they wouldn’t have been there in the first place if it weren’t for this sick, twisted girls obsession and rage. She doesn’t deserve anymore mention or press after all these years. She should be forgotten and locked away.

    70. MB on February 27th, 2014 4:33 pm

      I agree with everyone who says that Lisa shouldn’t have been given any money…she should have received the death penalty for what she did to Laurie and Laurie’s loved ones.

      As to Lisa Michelle being pretty, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. She was never a pretty girl…she had fake blonde hair, fake blue eyes, wore skimpy outfits and too much makeup. She was “sexy” in a slutty way but definitely not gorgeous. There was nothing classy about her. And not to be cliche, but she lacks inner beauty. You have to be ugly on the inside to stalk and murder somebody else.

      One poster above stated that maybe Laurie should have stayed away from Lisa’s boyfriend. Honey, with all due respect, please check the facts. Laurie was a pawn in their twisted relationship. Lawrence (Butch) was using her to make Lisa jealous and it worked. I think that maybe Laurie liked him, thought he was cute, but he wound up sexually assaulting her. I’m not sure if a rape kit was ever done but it is obvious that he hurt her because she was afraid of him after that. Laurie didn’t date very often. She wasn’t sexually active. Lisa is the one who became insanely jealous and fixated on Laurie losing her virginity, despite the fact that it wasn’t consensual.

      Laurie didn’t do anything to Lisa..even when Lisa confronted her and beat her up, Laurie never fought back. She was a gentle person. And she could have whipped Lisa’s butt easily because she was taller and stronger, but she didn’t want to hurt Lisa because of the baby.

      Now you made a valid point about how it isn’t wise to fool around with other people’s partners…I agree with that. Sometimes it can get a person into deep trouble. But Laurie only “dated” Butch for a short time, if it can even be considered dating. Laurie’s mother described it more like a friendship where they would simply hang out and do fun things. That is no reason for Lisa to kill her and ruin the lives of everyone around her.

      As to Lisa’s daughter, my heart goes out to her because that poor girl had to grow up knowing that her mother is behind bars for cutting somebody’s throat. Lisa’s parents must be wondering what went wrong…how they could raise a daughter like this.

    71. MB on March 6th, 2014 1:57 pm

      On the subject of Lambert’s rape allegations…I’ve never believed her stories about anything.

      As a survivor of rape/sexual abuse, I tend to believe most people who have been victimized, but nothing she says seems to ever add up. She claimed that on her second or third date with Butch Yunkin, he raped her in his truck. Now that may be possible, because Laurie also said that he did the same to her…maybe Lisa Michelle was being truthful about that. I don’t know why she would continue a relationship with a rapist, but then again, this is Lisa Michelle Lambert we’re talking about.

      But her accusations against every other man she came into contact with, including the police? That is all a bunch of bull. She is a pathological liar and continues to play the victim. She will never admit to the terrible things she’s done. If you watch the documentary about Laurie’s murder on Youtube, it is obvious that she is evil. She is calculating and manipulative. There is nothing behind those empty eyes of hers.

      But I will admit, she is interesting…I often wonder what breeds a person like this. I read “Overkill” by Lynn Riddle, the true-crime book about Laurie’s murder. There is a chapter on Lisa’s childhood and her upbringing in a supposedly strict Christian home. I was surprised to learn that Lisa was bullied severely as a child. In one instance, an older kid actually broke her arm when she was only 4 years old. She also had to assume adult responsibilities at an early age, especially when her mother developed postpartum depression.
      None of this excuses the evil acts she committed against Laurie Show, but it does make you take a deeper look at how she possibly came to be this way. Maybe a lack of guidance/attention from her parents? Being bullied so badly and so often that she became a bully herself? Low self-esteem and having no real direction in life? That type of violence stems from serious pent-up rage. Sadly, if she hadn’t killed Laurie, she would most likely have killed somebody else anyway.

      There is no doubt, she is scum and should never see the light of day. But at the same time, this is such a compelling case because it seems like she came from a decent family but something went horribly wrong. Maybe there was some sort of dysfunction or abuse that no one in her family will admit to. Of course, many people have terrible childhoods but they don’t turn out to be cold-blooded killers. Still, everyone is different.
      Lisa is actually quite intelligent based on what I’ve read and seen in her interviews…too bad she used it to harm others instead of doing good.

    72. MB on March 9th, 2014 6:02 pm

      Also, it says in the book “Overkill” that Lisa started showing signs of being troubled in her early teens. Lots of kids act out but it seems that she needed help from a therapist or something…she stole money and valuable items from her parents, left home at the age of 15, etc.
      Her mother Judy had bouts of depression and Lisa claimed that she too suffered from it at times and this is part of why she would climb out of her bedroom window and take long walks at night, to clear her mind.

      I believe that her parents are in denial about what she did, especially her mother. And I can see why…who would want to accept that their daughter brutally murdered somebody? In the book Judy described Lisa as being a “sweet little girl” when she was a child. If this is indeed true, then what changed as time went by? Many young girls can be difficult and rebellious, but they don’t stalk others and kill them in a fit of rage. So what made her this way? That’s what I (and others, I’m sure) would like to know.

      Some people are born evil, I think…not sure why. But others start out as decent human beings and then something happens. Maybe the Lamberts seemed like a perfect family on the outside, but there might have been serious problems within the home. I wanted to leave home at an early age (like Lisa did) and it was because my stepfather was abusive. Not saying that all kids leave home for this reason, but it is possible that Lisa had emotional/mental problems stemming from issues with her parents. She latched onto an abusive relationship with Butch Yunkin…two toxic, destructive people who had no business in a relationship, let alone having a child together.

      If poor Laurie Show had been lucky enough to not cross paths with them, she might still be here. I’ve also wondered about Lisa when she went by her middle name, Michelle, and took on this whole new identity…supposedly because Butch wanted her to look like a porn star or Barbie doll. Tabitha Buck said that Lisa told her it was because she wanted to look as white as possible, although she is already Caucasian, so that seems odd. It’s not like brown hair makes one appear to be of a different race and her hair is naturally dark brown. Maybe she just liked the look of blonde hair and blue eyes, hence the bleached hair and contacts. But then again, it was implied in the book that Lisa was prejudiced and her comment about wanting to look even whiter bothered Tabitha, whose boyfriend was of mixed race.

      I find Lisa Michelle Lambert to be one repulsive individual but like I said, she is also interesting because of her psychological profile. It is rare for women to commit extremely heinous crimes but noteworthy when they do. Lisa,to me, is like Christa Pike…google her if you don’t know who she is. As evil as Pike is, at least she admits that she committed murder. Lambert simply continues to lie and deny and point the finger at everybody else.

      And her interview makes no sense at all. She said that she was pregnant and having problems and wanted things to be “left alone”. I call BS on that, as well as her claims about fearing for the safety of her unborn child. If she was so worried about her baby, she wouldn’t have been stalking and threatening a young girl, beating her up in public places, and eventually killing her. Laurie wasn’t responsible for Lisa’s health or her unborn child…Lisa was, and she made Laurie’s life a living nightmare for no good reason. She showed no mercy or kindness to Laurie, therefore she deserves no mercy herself.

      If she wanted things to be “left alone”, she should have left Laurie alone. She is lucky that Laurie was a good person, because some other girl wouldn’t care about the baby…they would have hit her in the belly, pregnant or not, the minute she assaulted them. I would have and I wouldn’t care if she had a miscarriage. That would have taught her that you can’t harass and hurt innocent people. She’s not even with Butch anymore, he’s moved on with his life.

    73. MB on October 2nd, 2014 12:12 am

      More about this case…

      I don’t understand how Rainville could defend Lambert. No one can deny or doubt that Lisa Michelle Lambert was involved in this crime. She played an enormous part in it because she had the motive, which was jealousy.
      She is guilty as sin and she will spend the rest of her life behind bars. And for what? I sure hope it was worth it.

      I understand that she was only 19 when she killed Laurie Show…she was young, pregnant, and full of hormones.
      But there is no excuse. I was once a teenage girl myself. I understand what it is like to fall deeply in love and have a guy see other girls behind my back and to be mad at those girls. I understand the desire to fight with those girls. But in the end, self-control has to win and so does self-respect. I wanted to beat the asses of several girls who were either flirting with my boyfriend or sleeping with him when I was young. But I’m happy to say that I was able to restrain myself from doing something stupid, and I didn’t throw my life away over a guy.

      Lisa is no different from Christa Pike or Melinda Loveless or Diane Zamora or Rachel Wade or Karen Severson, all of whom murdered other girls because they perceived a threat to their relationships with men (except Melinda Loveless, who is a lesbian).

      As I stated before, Lisa is rotting away in prison. Butch has nothing to do with her from what I understand. She has no freedom or anything…she threw her life away back in 1991 when she killed Laurie. Was it worth it? And I often wonder how she would feel if somebody did that to her daughter. Would she finally understand the pain of Laurie’s parents, especially Hazel? Because I can’t imagine what it was like for Hazel to see her only child covered in blood with her throat ripped open and have that child die from a vicious attack.

      And when Hazel recounts how Lisa Michelle stalked Laurie, told Laurie that she’d ruined her life, it’s like really? Are you kidding me?!
      Let me see…any problems Lisa had with Laurie stemmed from her refusal to leave Laurie alone, not the other way around. That proves how sick she is. She was stalking Laurie but pretending to be the victim.

      I also believe that Lisa was jealous of Laurie way before she stalked and killed her. I read in “Overkill” that Laurie wanted to be a model and if that didn’t work out, she considered beauty school.
      When Lisa heard about Laurie wanting to try modeling, she insulted Laurie’s looks. She tried to make Laurie feel bad about herself. Laurie wasn’t a knockout by any means but she was tall and slender. She was much more “natural” than Lisa, who was the queen of peroxide hair and trashiness. I think that Lisa went after Laurie because she wasn’t the type to fight back.
