Events of Criminal Case

Barbara is Howard Pickley's mother and the deceased Susie's mother-in-law.

Barbara was called into the investigation when Amy and the player found a book (The Woman Warrior by Constance Bell), forensically dusted the book for fingerprints, and matched those fingerprints to be hers. Prior to the first conversation, Amy mentioned Barbara being arrested 18 years ago for unruly behavior during a women's rights march. Barbara claimed Susie was once shy, but grew to think of Susie as a natural daughter, and to be confident in her own strength, which were the reasons as to why Barbara gave Susie the book.

Barbara was suspected of "snooping" on Susie when Becky Walden confessed to the team the blogging recognition company was a fraud and issued a USB Key for Hannah to analyze, revealed Barbara duped Becky to spy on Susie. Barbara abhorred roller derby as a scantily-clad sport not to mention women beating each other. Barbara was very protective of Susie because she feared the roller derby world would one day have Susie cheating on Howard.

It was later revealed that Barbara was responsible for the murder of her own daughter-in-law Susie. Barbara killed Susie because she thought Susie cared so much about roller derby that she stopped listening to her advice. Barbara became disgusted and infuriated because she found out and thought Susie was cheating on her son Howard by flirting with Lenny Spitfire, and also Howard was ogling other roller derby girls, so Barbara poisoned Susie to death by putting Rocket Cow in her drink bottle to warn Howard to stay away from the roller derby girls. Judge Dante sentenced Barbara to 25 years in prison.
