Location of Crime - Alamance County, North Carolina
Co-defendants - None
Race and Gender of Victim - White male Crime Committed: In 1989, police began investigating Moore after her second husband, Rev. Dwight Moore, became ill with suspicious symptoms. A doctor ordered toxic testing and determined his illness was from arsenic poisoning. He somehow survived the ingestion of large amount of poison over a week’s time. The police became suspicious of Moore, and asked that the bodies of Moore's former boyfriend, Raymond Reid, and James N. Taylor, her first husband, who died 1973, be exhumed. It was determined that both men died of arsenic poisoning. Moore's father, P.D. Kiser, also died of symptoms similar to those that occur with arsenic poisoning.
Moore was convicted for the murder of her boyfriend, Raymond Reid and received the death penalty.
Speculators say Moore killed the men in her life because of a deep seeded hate of her alcoholic father that forced her into prostitution to help pay the family bills.

I watched a doco about this 'woman' and she just spent her life poisoning everyone around her, they said every single person who crossed her path has been poisoned, going for tea at her house they left being violently ill.
But she claims innocence all the way, kinda sad really that a woman could kill all these people and still think she is innocent.
She "doesn't" THINK she's innocent. She wants the rest of the world to believe she's innocent. She sits right where she needs to be. My only problem is what's up North Carolina? You seem to be taking to long at killing this one. Perhaps you can "speed" things along by inviting her to the warden's office for some good 'ol fashioned "sweet tea?" The "laced" type of course...
It seems that no one has written anything here since 2006. Well, it is now 2008, almost 2009! Do you mean to tell me that Blanche Taylor Moore is still ALIVE??? This was one of the most heartless criminals I have ever known of. It was one thing to poison all of these people, but quite another to stand by and WATCH the unbearable pain her victims endured! She even nursed them as they vomited and had diarrhea all over themselves!! Poisoning is an extremely horrible way to die. I would only smile if I heard that the NC Dept. of Prisons had executed Blanche with ARSENIC! I actually did a Google search to find out if this woman had been put to death yet. Twelve years is usually the limit for a death row case to be carried out. Well.....somebody dropped the ball. She was convicted in 1990 and it is now 2009. As far as I am concerned, this woman should have be molding in her grave by 2002. To allow her to die of natural causes (Cancer) does not deter some other crazy person from committing serial murder as well. I feel that this woman should have to feel the fear that her victims felt when they were so sick they must have known they were dying. She should have to experience days, if not weeks or months waiting for her execution date. Her actual death, if NC ever gets around to taking her life, will be a piece of cake compared to what her victims went through!! Here is the thing...Blanche skated by all her life by her looks (it is said she was a looker when young)or her sweet, Christian act. I hear she carries the Bible around with her wherever she goes. PEOPLE! IS THIS WOMAN PULLING THE WOOL OVER THE EYES OF THE NC PRISONS AS SHE DID SO MANY PEOPLE IN HER LIFE? Now, THAT would be criminal, indeed! Opinions anyone?

Sadly the State of N.C (my home State) finds itself in the midst of foolish lawsuits brought about by those with no intent other than to spare the likes of Ms.Moore. As you point out her execution should have occured years ago , only thru the grace of frivolous appeals and the apparent disdain of the States to execute females has spared her. I too believe a death from cancer is too good for the likes of her , the old gas chamber at Central Prison would have been a much more fitting end for her.
Practice safe sex.....Marry a death inmate...You'll never get none

I was curious so I looked for her on the Florida site. They list one white female on death row and it isn't Blanche Moore. I checked the list of those who have been executed and no Blanche Moore on there either. I'm thinking she died.

I just happen to be the great neice of blanche and if you know the family then you know for sure she suffers from some sort of personality disorder and needs to remain in jail and suffer her consequences
How in the world is this c*** still alive??? Even in the scarce moments that women ARE sentenced to death it STILL never happens. I am so unbelievably sick and tired of this country's ignorant, inept, wimpy, hypocritical, sexist, and severely lacking in common sense "justice system". I look at the top of this page and see the list of MEN that have already or have dates set to be executed and it's way more than enough to make anyone with an iq higher than their shoe size vomit. Why in the hell is there not ONE woman's name on that list? To think this perverted B**** has already waited 20 YEARS and is still not 6 feet under is one of the most abhorrent facts i've ever learned. In terms of "pussified countries" on this planet we're around 3rd, right behind Europe and Canada (with this one claiming the number one spot in a landslide by letting disgusting trash like karla hmolka out of prison who now has 3 kids and a wimpo husband ). That's how Canada treats its FEMALE murderers. Canada's "justice system" should be banned from being able to make any more decisions regarding charges or sentencing for women until it raises its iq total about 94 points. It's no wonder we've never been visited by "intelligent" life from other planets. If i was at the helm of the spaceship i'd ALSO make one of the fastest u-turns you've ever witnessed to get back home.

Ah Yes; The evil Blanche Taylor Moore; convicted of murdering her husband, murder weapon you ask. Arsenic. Unlike the TV movies and shows you watch on TV where the murder weapon has to be found for a conviction; in this case the US Justice got one of their minions to validate the cause of death was arsenic. Though it is a guaranteed 100 per cent fact that the medical profession can not definitively state one way or the other if someone was really maliciously poisoned with that product. Case example. "the invisible intruder." though in that case the defendant was found not guilty. The fact is arsenic is not a very easy product to get your hands on, and if a person wanted to purchase it privately it would be very expensive if your on a prostitute salary. Though one would think if a evil women such as Blanche Taylor Moore is going around murdering all these people with Arsenic; that the State wouldn't have a problem proving Moore had Arsenic in her possession at least once in her lifetime, OR prove she purchased somewhere ONCE in her lifetime, but NO she is going around murdering all these people using Arsenic, yet the police don't know where she is getting it from. Women predominately don't go around murdering their husbands, and loved ones using poison, its just too complicated, an time consuming, and everyone knows women don't have patience to wait around forever for poison to kick in, they pick up a knife, and the they kill their husbands with it, that what women do.. they use knifes, and guns. NOT poison predominately. I mean if she was going to kill her husband what the motive this time, for a better lifestyle; NO.. how about life insurance; NO. what else.. I know she doesn't believe in divorce; NO too hard to prove, actually impossible.. WAIT wasn't she once a prostitute, well we'll get 12 good clean Christian Jury members, and tell them that why she is going around murdering everyone, because she resented the fact that she was a prostitute, all we have to do is emulate the Aileen Wuornos case, and we all go home heroes with our jobs secured. This case is nothing more that fallacious.
The Truth without the B.S.: I have been studying this case inside and out. My conclusion is Bob Fratta arrange to have his wife killed. Why not get a divorce? Save your life and family. For the record Bob wasn't a REAL POLICE OFFICER. I don't blame the Kids he killed their Mother.

alanthony4: .Bob Fratta; where or why is his name mentioned out of the this, and none of those guys are real Police officers. and if Fratta was going to arrange to have his wife killed, he wouldn't have hire some black homeless person with a grade 3 education to doit

alanthony4: look chances are Fratta committed the crime, but there was no evidence. till the police manufactured it. so we will never really know. It took them a long time to contrast a frame job, if he was guilty definitely. they would have charge him right away..
