New TV Program About the Knoxville Horror


War crime victims Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom

By David in TN

I just found out somebody has made a TV program (partially) about the Knoxville Horror. It's on a black-oriented network called TV One. I never heard of it, but it's on my Direct TV package Channel 328. It might be on your cable. [It is; on Time Warner Cable NYC, it’s on channel 90.]

The title of the show is "For My Man." The theme is black women who get in trouble from "love of their man."

It premiered last month but it reruns early Sunday morning at 4 am ET. I've set my DVR to record it. Google "Vanessa Coleman For My Man."

The host of the show is one Tracey Reiyes who is a "crime reporter" or something. The show is an hour, telling two stories, meaning Coleman will take up half an hour.

Traciy Reyes' introduction to the episode from Inquisitr follows.
The Vanessa Coleman, Lemaricus Davidson Tennessee murder case and the Tamika Jasper Barbary drug trafficking case will be the featured stories for the next episode of For My Man. For My Man is a new crime documentary show that now airs on TV One about women who have gotten themselves in legal trouble because they loved their man. The show comes on just after TV One’s hit crime show, Fatal Attraction.

In tonight’s For My Man, viewers will learn about the case of Vanessa Coleman, a woman who was convicted in the 2007 Tennessee deaths of 21-year old Channon Gail Christian and her boyfriend, 23-year old Hugh Christopher Newsom Jr.

Channon and Christopher were kidnapped from their vehicle after leaving an apartment in the area. When they were abducted, they were taken back to a home where they were raped and tortured for hours. It’s an incredibly sad case, but a bit controversial. The victims were white. The perpetrators were all black, which caused tremendous outrage in the community. The case was heavily criticized by whites who felt that the case was ignored by the media, since it was a case of black on white crime. Since that time, some white hate groups have constructed various pages that call for the deaths of the killers, but are peppered with #BlackLivesMatter information. Vanessa Coleman, along with the other accomplices, are currently incarcerated in a Tennessee correctional facility.

"Community". Meaning negro community.

Outrage not so. Chuckles as from the foolish negro Pitts.

Hal Turner was not only an informer he was a FBI agitator and agent provocateur attempting to goad whites into committing criminal acts.

I think she meant the local "white" community, as in white people were outraged due to it being black on white and especially heinous.

"but have yet to be named" is a good way of putting it. It is very suspicious that any person committing a crime of such magnitude as this has never before or since had their DNA entered into the DNA data base.

To Anonymous 4:48,

As far as we know these other DNA examples were entered and checked against the DNA data base and didn't match anyone on file.

"War criminal"? No one is at war. This is a peculiarly gruesome street crime (quite different from the ordinary run of homicides).

I just watched the recording of the program on my DVR. People interviewed included prosecutor Leland Price, Jamie Satterfield, a novelist named Kalisha Buckhanon, and Jeffrey Gardere, who is a media talking head. Gardere was on In Session when they showed the Cobbins trial in late 2009.

The TV One show "For My Man" is an hour long with two stories 30 minutes each. Coleman is depicted as a nice middle class girl who falls for "bad boy" Letalvis Cobbins and was unaware of what she was getting into. Supposedly, Coleman didn't know about Chris. They infer he was kept in the trunk while Channon was brought into house, and was taken to the railroad tracks, tortured and killed there, while Vanessa was left alone with Channon.

Vanessa "went along by standing by her man" is the theme of the show. That Vanessa Coleman's family "stands by her and proclaims her innocence" is flashed on the screen at the end.

Overall, not a bad program, except for letting Coleman off (she had several chances to free Channon) too easy. Still, TV One deserves credit for doing a show on the crime. ABC 20/20, NBC Dateline, and CBS 48 Hours have not.
