I don’t have one simple answer for that. I definitely have a strong curiosity about you. I have since you were arrested.
I’ve always had an interest in crime and criminal acts. I don’t mean for that to sound ghoulish or morbid. I just want to figure out what makes a person tick. The people who do the things most outside of society’s norm are the ones who fascinate me the most.
You have to admit that upon first hearing about the crimes for which you’ve been accused, most people will immediately assume you are a monster.
However, that is such a simplified response. The man I met four years ago did not appear to be a monster, and these well written and thoughtful letters you’ve sent me have only made me even more aware of your humanity.
When you were arrested, I was immediately creatively drawn to your story. I felt that there was so much to explore about you and your life. I wanted to write about you or write something inspired by you. I really wanted to understand you…
Who is this man accused of such heinous acts and how is he the same creative, funny and seemingly kind person who is writing to me about helping a fellow inmate get his GED?
Who was he before and how in the world did he get here?
How do you feel about me or anyone wanting to tell your story?
I did say in the first post that I think he’s guilty.
Guilty of what precisely, though… I don’t know.
