There they held classes via Skype with students, showing them the wonders of the ocean, and even inviting some big name guests like astronout Buzz Aldrin.

Vanessa Coleman is the only woman convicted of helping rape, torture, and murder Channon Christian and Chris Newsom in 2007. She got 35 years in jail and was up for parole. Local8now reports that request was denied Thursday, and she won't have a chance in front of the parole board until December 2020. In her closing statement, Coleman apologized to both Channon Christian and Chris Newsom's families today in court, saying, "I'd like to say I apologize for your losses. If I could have changed things, I would have changed things. But it was not under my control." "I made a mistake hanging out with the wrong people," she added. Gary Christian told reporters that both families are already talking with senators, asking to petition legislators to change Tennessee law about early release for people convicted of crimes.
