Where is Christina Boyer Now? We discuss the 2023 Hulu true crime documentary series Demons and Saviors, which contains details that some readers will find disturbing.

Demons and Saviors is a three-part limited series that examines one of the strangest true crime cases ever. The story is a shocking and disturbing case and explores the details of the death of a three-year-old child.

With a backstory that could almost come straight from a Stephen King story, the horrific events centered around Christina Boyer and her daughter, and the reasons behind the events would go on to stun the world.

Boyer is currently serving a thirty-year sentence for the alleged murder of her daughter, and the case became a media circus as more and more revelations about the story were revealed.

In this article, we will explore the case and answer the question: Where is Christina Boyer Now?

Who is Christina Boyer, and what did she allegedly do?

Christina Boyer had a rough childhood and spent a lot of her teenage years in foster care. It was in her early teens that she earned the title “Poltergeist Girl” after claiming that she possessed telekinesis and that objects around her would move on their own.

Intense media speculation and investigation surrounded this particular episode in her life, and there is enough material there for a separate documentary on its own.

Later in her teens, Christina would talk of a previous relationship she had that was abusive and brutal. She would eventually move away to a trailer park in Carroll County, Georgia, which lies in the Bible Belt region of the state, and living with her new boyfriend, David Herrin, Christina’s unwed status meant she was judged harshly by the locals.

Christina was working in Carrollton on the day that her young daughter Amber Bennett had to be taken quickly to the hospital for a head trauma that would eventually lead to her death.

Returning from work, she would find the child with her partner, who said he had tried to awaken Amber from her nap but was unsuccessful. Earlier in the week, the child had received a bump on her head falling from her car seat, but it seemed to be nothing that concerned the child or her carers.

Amber would sadly die before anything could be done to help her, and the police would take Christina in for questioning.

After her conviction, Christina is serving life plus 20 years in Pulaski State Prison in Hawkinsville, GA.

She would take what is known as an Alford Plea to avoid the death penalty.

Why do they believe Christina Boyer was wrongfully incarcerated?

There are many people and agencies that believe that Christina was wrongly convicted. It seems that a lot of the prosecution’s case against Christina was based on claims that she had been covering up abuse of the child by her partner.

The investigation was heavily criticized, and evidence offered by the prosecutors would be refuted by the findings in Amber’s autopsy. The conduct of the investigators was also questioned, and many people would feel that Christina was not guilty and had been imprisoned wrongfully.

Her partner David Herrin would also receive a twenty-year sentence for child cruelty leading to other theories about the events being formed. In 2019, a group of three students released a YouTube video that explored the case.

The short film entitled She Was Her Mother gained a lot of attention, and the team behind the film would go on to push for Christina’s release, starting a website to raise awareness of the case and to push for her release.

To this day, there are discrepancies in the story, and there is no definitive answer to who struck the blow to little Amber that would lead to her death.

    So if they have no concrete evidence that she did it, no evidence, no anything, how do they convict her and let her boyfriend off. Makes no sense. That is totally against what is supposed to happen in court.

    The DM and police department knew David’s family. This is a perfect example of the “Good old boy” system. Christina was not home when David was hitting her baby, he is a looser that did not even have a job and Christina was providing for him thinking her baby was in good hands. He is the killer, easy to see. Shame on GA detectives and attorney who spent 17.5 hrs on a death row case. All looser! Christina is going to heaven!

    If Christina is released from prison and it’s proven that David was actually the one that murdered her child will he have to go back through a trial for the murder of her daughter?

    This is how screwed up our court systems are. I say the same as previous comment and I think they should look at the final blow. When she left for work, did they ask him if the child was alive when Christina left? If so then he gave final blow because she wasn’t there. It’s sickening to take away her life and she never even got to say goodbye to her daughter. It’s disgusting!!

    Listening to the two retired dicks in the doc just chapped my a55. Such a boys club. They haven’t asked the right questions, then or now- a pat on the back for Herrin and a “we got ya, fella!” while mother STILL suffers at the hands of her own parents under media scrutiny. HERESY! Then the vague circumstances surrounding her child’s death interpreted by bible thumping geography will lock her away for years to come. Of course women can be awful, but the actual evidence here should only serve to bolster her innocence.

    It’s disgusting they say they didn’t “coerce” her into admitting guilt or else going to the electric chair when it was obvious she wasn’t there. Regardless if the injuries occurred hours or days before she left the home, she was a young mother who was dependent on a man promising to provide for her and many woman would endure even extreme circumstances to provide for her child. Even if she knew or suspected he was abusing the child, people overlook things through circumstance…and just like the prosecutor said, people don’t act the same around certain people so why wouldn’t that apply to what what happening between her and him behind closed doors. It’s obvious she didn’t murder her own child and I’m sick to my stomach that the system basterdized this case in a cruel and unusual manner.

    How, in todays society, can a case such as this continue to keep a woman in prison, Georgia or not? I can watch the series and maybe see that she was charged for cruelty like David. The injuries were consistent with prolonged abuse/spankings. But THE beating itself, she literally was not there. There was clear evidence of Him calling looking for Christina during the 6 hour period that two separate Medical examiners, one provided by the state, that the fatal blows were given. In his interview the moment he said he tried putting her down for a nap and the baby kept getting up, immediately you knew he beat her. What can we do? Who can we write too? Why aren’t there celebrities and senators stepping up to defend a woman wrongly convicted because she was unwed and an outsider in the bible belt?? I’m so heartbroken for her.

    Clearly David did it and the Public Defender and detectives were in cahoots together that’s how he wins all his death penalty cases .Christina didn’t stand a chance they should move to have the trial in a less bias area that lady because that wasn’t a fair trial. She has been through hell all her life and I hope and pray she is exonerated.

    This is the stuff that just causes anyone to have severe doubts about our justice system, your shin crawl, and your stomach do somersaults. Why is the hell, if you are wrongly accused, does it take so LONG for the justice system to reverse. This is an unfortunate situation that could happen to anyone, yet the stubbornness/ego to admit a mistake by the lawyers, DA, police force is just completely scary, worrisome, and unethical. I’m just so distraught that these situations are happening to INNOCENT individuals. I hope to hell you get her free, and I hope it will be soon. SMH in DISGUST.

    This whole story from absolute beginning is perplexing and a mess. Things that do not seem real are made to be real and things that seem impossible are possible . This will remain an unsolved mystery

    I personally think the boyfriend did everything and she was just too trusting and believed him when he said she fell on the concrete. Mom may have spanked her child but i truly without a doubt believe he was the abuser. I mean even if you just look at her death… mom wasn’t even there!!! How can they just over look that? It wasn’t HIS kid therefor he isn’t at fault? So many things are shady and his story being inconsistent

  • September 4, 2023 at 2:02 pm

    In the end, Christina is responsible. Right from the beginning, I could see what she was doing. She knew the boyfriend was abusing her, she herself abused this baby. The boyfriend calls and says he can’t wake Amber, asks if he should call an ambulance, Christina says no, then stops at the store to buy soda and cigarettes before going home. She needed the time to come up with a story. She knew the kid was dead. It doesn’t matter if she didn’t deliver the final blow. Amber would be alive if her mother made better decisions. Life plus 20 isn’t enough time.
