Welcome Cynthia Sommer (Mrs. Sgt. Todd Sommer)

"We have somebody in the end who was not acting aggrieved at the death of her husband." --Deputy District Attorney Laura Gunn
Good Mourning Widows.
Joy to you and me!
Today we welcome(?) famous widow Cynthia Sommer wife of famous poisoned-with-arsenic Marine husband Sgt. Todd Sommer.
Sorry. This elite club frowns on volunteers.
Sgt. Sommer collapsed February 18, 2002 on his kitchen floor and died.
He was in perfect health and in top physical condition.
After Sgt. Sommer's death, famous widow Cynthia hosted "loud parties" at their home and used his $250,000 death benefit to finance breast implants and shopping sprees.
"Cynthia refused to put her husband's death benefit in trust for herself, their baby and children from a previous marriage."
All evidence against Mrs. Sommer was circumstantial but it didn't tak a jury long to find her guilty of murder. Cynthia Sommer faces life in prison.
Sheesh! Now I have heard everything.
Mourning Joy:
Q: Where is the ocean the deepest?
A: On the bottom.
Mourning Quote:
"On Saturday he ate through one piece of chocolate cake, one ice-cream cone, one pickle, one slice of Swiss cheese, one slice of salami, one lollipop, one piece of cherry pie, one sausage, one cupcake, and one slice of watermelon. That night he had a stomachache!" --"The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle
After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen.
Write something.
Go ahead.
I dare you.
Have a joy-filled day widows. And remember, we're not alone!


  1. SAN DIEGO, CA, April 17, 2008 - Cynthia Sommer, who was once convicted of killing her Marine husband with arsenic, was cleared Thursday after new tests showed no traces of any poison.

    Todd Sommer was not murdered, yet his widow spent 869 days in jail for a crime that never happened.

    WHAT SHOULD NOT BE FORGOTTEN is that this case is still not over. The District Attorney has stated that she still wants to leave the case in such a manner that she could re-charge Cindy at some point in the future! Cindy and her attorney, Allen Bloom, want this case fully dismissed - with prejudice - as soon as possible. Towards that end, a hearing has been set in the Superior Court of San Diego County to determine if the case should be dismissed once and for all time.

    This hearing - currently scheduled for July 18, 2008, with a "status" hearing scheduled for May 16, 2008 - will present extensive evidence as to why Cindy's case should, because of the evidence in the case and the improper conduct of the District Attorney, be dismissed once and for all.

    DA Bonnie Dumanis and her hand-puppet Laura Gunn should be ashamed of themselves!

    People of San Diego County - be afraid, be very afraid.

    Cynthia Sommer was not a volunteer.

    OP said:
    "Sgt. Sommer collapsed February 18 2002 on his kitchen floor and died."

    Todd Sommer collapsed in their beedroom and was later pronounced dead in the ER.

    OP said:
    "Cynthia refused to put her husband's death benefit in trust for herself, their baby and children from a previous marriage."

    Cynthia most certainly did not refuse to put her husband's death benefit into trusts. $145K went into trusts.

    You put your site out as a support site for the bereaved, yet you post bad information about this young woman who not only lost her dear husband to a tragic sudden cardiac arrhythmia, but also lost 869 days of her life to a system that puts a higher priority on convictions and judgmentalism than it does on the truth.

    The truth can be found on Cindy's website:

    Good Day!
