My First Letter from a Serial Killer

On May 28, 2011, I arrived at Birdy’s bar and grill in Indianapolis, Indiana for The Crime Scene event. Matthew Aaron, the driving force behind the show, was given an unopened envelope by the owners of the bar. The letter was sent by serial killer Kieth Jesperson from the Oregon State Prison. The envelope was addressed to Birdy’s Bar and Grill, Attention: The Crime Scene.

Here is the full text of the letter:

23 May 2011

Dear the Crime Scene

I know Joe Hiles and have heard of several who are there. What I am interested in is John Borowski, filmmaker. Hoping he will consider doing a film on my story. Especially my first murder case here in Oregon. The Bennett murder where Multnomah County sheriff’s and prosecutors coached Laverne Pavlinac into pointing blame at herself and John Sosnovski for killing Taunja Anne Bennett on January 20, 1990.

5 ½ years they spent behind bars before I, Keith Jesperson, was able to (?) my total guilt in the case and got them released.

Follow my story John by going to Joe Hiles is helping Tod Bohanon put together my website to tell my story and sell my art.

Good luck on your convention.

Sincerely Keith Jesperson.

PS I have six murder convictions to date.

#1 Multnomah County Oregon 30 years, 20 minimum

#2 Washington County, Oregon 37½ years consecutive

#3 Clark County, Washington 34½ years consecutive

#4 Laramie County, Wyoming 25 to life consecutive

#5 Santa Clara County, California life without parole consecutive

#6 Riverside County, California 25 to life consecutive
