Pam loved her kids, She was a good mom always doing something to have fun with her kids, Pam was murdered by her husband Larry Adams who also on the same night murdered their 3 year old daughter Lora. Pam always said she Knew she would die a horrible death and that feeling she had her whole life came true. But it was probably more horrible then what she had imagined it would be. Because she had to watch her 3 year old baby girl get murdered also. After he shot Pam 7 times she was still alive begging her husband not to shoot Lora. Larry Adams you took away two beautiful souls from this earth that night but you can not take the memories or the love her family has for them both. Pam was a fun out going person, So many memories of her. she loved her family, loved life, loved to have stay overs and do make-up and nails, Loved to spend hours playing gallaga and mrs. pac-man at 7-11 with a BIG GULP in hand always (oh the hours we spent doing that), She loved to sew outfits for her kids, She loved to dance in the 70's she got the disco fever Pam was a very good dancer. When she was your friend that's exactly what she was your friend end of story, If she loved you she loved you with all she had to give. Pam was just a beautiful human being. If you had the honor of meeting her and knowing her she left an impression upon you that's for sure. Pam loved those photo booths at the stores she could never pass one without jumping inside for a pictures. -----NEWS PAPER CLIPPING OF THE MURDERS-----Larry Adams, was given a death sentence for not only killing his three-year-old daughter Lora, but also Lora's mother, Pamela, during a violent fight. On June 23, 1984, he shot her mother twice with one handgun and five times with another one before shooting Lora in the forehead. Lora's autopsy revealed that she had been looking at her father when he shot her due to gunpowder residue in her eyes. Near midnight on June 23, 1984, Adams' estranged wife, Pamela, and three year-old daughter, Laura, were shot and killed in their home on Avondale Avenue in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the days that followed, the police questioned Adams, but were unable to connect him to the murders. Shortly thereafter, Adams relocated to California. Several months later, however, the Nevada police were informed that Adams had reportedly boasted about the killings to acquaintances while living in Sacramento. Adams was arrested and charged with burglary and two counts of first-degree murder with use of a deadly weapon.--- End of News Paper Clipping--- The news paper did not print what Larry Adams was BRAGGING about to others on the the murders he committed. It came out in court He was bragging telling people that the big b_ _ch was hard to kill he had to use 2 guns and shoot her 7 times but the little b_ _ch was easy, one shot between the eye's what a MONSTER can not be human he got the death penalty but 31 years later 2015 he is still living on this earth. There were 3 other small children in that house that night 1 was his other daughter with Pam and the other 2 were Pam's children they had to live that nightmare and be scared beyond belief something that would be hard for an adult to go through.
