Who is Falicia Blakely?
American criminal murderer Falicia Blakely was born in Jacksonville, Florida USA, sometime between 1983 and 1987; her date of birth remains undisclosed, but Gemini’s believed to be her zodiac sign. She was 19 when she killed three men, and has since been serving her life sentence without the possibility of parole at Arrendale State Prison.
Education and early life
Falicia was raised in Jacksonville by her parents, and didn’t have a happy childhood; her father was a drug addict and spent most of his time behind bars, and her mother preferred to spend time with her several lovers rather than with Falicia. She doesn’t have siblings.
Falicia studied at a local high school in Jacksonville and was a problematic teenager, as she often got into fights, failed to attend classes, and spent time with people involved in illegal activities. She was 17 when she chose to quit school and moved to Atlanta, Georgia, without letting her parents know; Falicia believes that her mother was relieved that she was gone.
She hasn’t completed her GED tests to this day.
Murders and conviction
Falicia began working at a local bar upon moving to Atlanta, and used a fake ID which showed that she was 24 years old; she already had a son at that point, and was in a relationship with a non-celebrity American Michael Berry.
Falicia then turned to robberies, and was convinced by her boyfriend to kill three men and rob them, including Raymond Goodwin and Claudell Christmas; she was helped by convict Ameshia Ervin, and even though Falicia’s boyfriend Michael was the one to convince her to commit the crimes, the prosecutors had no evidence to lock him up.
Falicia’s story has been covered in the 2017 drama movie “When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely Story”, which Tasha Smith directed, and which starred Tami Roan, Lance Gross and Lil Mama. It follows Falicia who’s fallen for local pimp Dino, and who’s promised her a better life if she kills several people for him; the film was nominated for two awards.

Presence on the internet
Falicia isn’t active on any of the today’s popular social media networks, but a number of ‘fan’ accounts have been launched, and the one on Instagram is today followed by more than 100 people, but only six pictures and videos have been uploaded onto it.
She’s been mentioned in numerous Twitter posts, and has thus attracted quite a lot of attention on this network; there’s a Twitter account for the movie “When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely Story”, but it’s only followed by four people.
A Facebook page for Falicia is followed by close to 10,000 people, and it’s updated once a week; it was revealed on Facebook on 6 November 2022 that Falicia had published her book “A Treacherous Hustle”, in which she writes about her former boyfriend Michael and the murders.
Love life and relationships
Falicia avoids speaking about her love life, but it’s known that she became pregnant not long after she moved to Atlanta, and gave birth to her son whom she refers to as ‘Man’ aged 18; the boy’s father’s name hasn’t been revealed.
She was working as a waitress at a bar when she met Michael, and he promised to take care of both her and her son, if she was to do certain things for him, including robbing people, bars and restaurants. It remains unknown how Falicia met her murdering accomplice Ameshia, but it’s believed that the two were introduced by Michael.
After the trial and Falicia’s conviction, Michael abandoned Falicia and didn’t send her a single letter, while he also hasn’t visited her in jail.
Falicia hasn’t mentioned other men whom she’s perhaps been with, she’s unattached as of March 2023, hasn’t married and has a son with a former boyfriend.
Interesting facts and hobbies

She only became interested in writing a book about her life when visited by a journalist in jail, who convinced Falicia that her story had garnered enough attention for the book to become a success. A ghostwriter was thus hired, and Falicia told him/her her life story; the book’s indeed become popular, and has since its publishing been sold all around the US.
Falicia’s a fan of actor Richard Gere, and some of her favorite movies are “Hachi: A Dog’s Tale”, “Arbitrage” and “Norman”.
