GQ Magazine reports on Tina Marie Cornelius, "who will serve a lifetime in a Texas prison for the unthinkable crime she committed on the night of April 14, 1999." Cornelius kissed her 3 year-old daughter and 2 year-old son, told them she loved them and then threw them off a limestone ridge into a creek below. "Over the course of the next five days, she was dancing for tips with her clothes off, smoking pot at a reggae festival, dining at a yacht club, snorting speed and sleeping with three different men." Through an interview with Cornelius, the article reveals her rampant lifestyle and reports on the aftermath of killing her children- living out her days as inmate number 905058.
