Who is Jesse McFadden's mom, LaDonna McFadden?
Not much has been revealed about McFadden's mom but she had previously said her "heart is breaking" for all the families involved. "I've not had any time to think about my son or anything like that," his mother, Ladonna had previously told NBC News. "I can't imagine what they went through."

Sheriff’s secretary witnessed Jesse McFadden and Holly Guess's wedding
Recent developments in the case revealed that the Sheriff’s Secretary who had McFadden on the sex offender list witnessed his wedding to Holly Guess a year later. His wedding was conducted by the jail chaplain. A year later, seven bodies, including his, were found on his property.
The information, released by NewsNation, has led to massive social media outrage. Police are already under fire for their handling of the case for allegedly failing to seize crucial evidence from the convicted rapist's home. "Sheriff’s Secretary has McFadden on the sex offender list. A year later she witnesses the wedding. Her deputy son does one site visit. Another year later, bodies are found. Sheriff’s office closes the investigation without seizing the electronic devices. Why?" the Webster family's lawyer Cameron Spradling wrote on Twitter.
New records have also revealed that McFadden had ten violations while he was in the Oklahoma Department of Corrections custody, between 2004 and 2016. Yet, he was released from prison earlier than he was scheduled to be. His violations included sexual acts and intoxication.
McFadden was reportedly released early, after only 85 per cent of his time, because he managed to bank enough credits through good behavior and hygiene. When he was found with a phone with child porn in it, he was only punished with thirty-day segregation and restricted visitation for having the phone. He was disciplined with his canteen, telephone, and visitation being restricted for 90 days.
