Filmmaker Denied Access to County Jail (Press Enterprise 080206)

When there is weird people that do weird things then the people that want to know why come out to worship or try to figure out why, then they become what they feel is friends and they don't think that the person that is in prison could have done all the terrible things that they are convicted of. However there is the other type that try to make money of the strange, such as a filmmaker whom goes to the prison with her small digital camera and film the Serial Killer and then makes a documentary, once they are Killed, 21 years later, they release the film and make millions. It has been done, the first one won the prestigious Writing award, and it was none other then Truman Capote (sp). He stuck to the bloody Killers of that family and wanted them to be killed so that when he released his book he would be famous. However, the release of his book after the suspects death was the key, then he won the big prestigious awards, and they made a movie using the book as the background for the script. Money money money, I don't know if that is why this woman is trying to get to Ford or if she is Fascinated with him all together.

Woman can be weird like that, and get strange crushes on some men that are just plan dangerous, and it is the danger that attracts them to the man! So, could it be the money or the danger, or both?? We will not know because all she is saying is that she wants to make a documentary about Ford, But there is something else going on for her to be banned from visiting him. either she is showing private parts or something to get her banned!!

The Press-Enterprise

A former breast-enhancement model can no longer visit convicted killer Wayne Adam Ford after San Bernardino County sheriff's officials decided last week to ban the documentary filmmaker from entering its jails, a sheriff's spokeswoman said.

Victoria Redstall, an actress who said she is making a documentary about Ford, has talked about her repeated jail interviews with the convicted killer since she began attending Ford's trial in April.

Redstall, who identifies herself as a "TV Host, Actress, Reporter, Spokesmodel" on her business card, could not be reached.

Ford, 44, faces the death penalty or life without parole following his June 27 conviction of murdering four women, including two from San Bernardino County, in 1997 and 1998.

He unexpectedly surrendered to Humboldt County sheriff's officials with a severed breast from one of his victims in the pocket of his jacket.

Jurors completed a third half-day of deliberations on Wednesday without reaching a verdict in the trial's punishment phase. They are scheduled to resume deliberating today.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Cindy Beavers said Monday that she could not comment about the reason behind Redstall's banishment. She said it was a personnel matter.

Beavers did say that Redstall has repeatedly contacted sheriff's officials about getting cameras into the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga, where Ford is held.

"She wanted to make a documentary about Ford," Beavers said. "At the time, I told her we don't allow any cameras into our jails."

Beavers said the decision to bar Redstall was made last week.

On Friday, San Bernardino County Superior Court Judge Michael Smith denied a defense motion to prevented Redstall from taping proceedings.

Smith ruled that the media could take pictures of Ford when the verdict is returned and, if needed, at sentencing.
