I'm wanting to talk about what is
in the news "CRT" I listen to AM-
Radio. Also NPR. We have 2-flat
screen TVs in the dayrooms, one
stays on ESPN, every now and then we
watch local news and at times world
news but as always, all day we're
on a in and out. We can go [illegible] to the
dayroom all around 7ish in the morning to
sit either at a table or on a bench

You stated you have a son who was adopted when he was 4. Has he ever reached out to you or any member of his family? Do you know if you have grandchildren?

So in a past letter you wrote to your son. Did he ever reply to you? You spoke of a grandson also does he only have the one child? You must be happy to reconnect with him. Also I might have missed it but can you explain how life has been for you behind bars and are you hopeful to get out at se point.

Is it true that the only reason you were caught and went to prison is that you went into a McDonalds restroom in Mississippi and a state trooper didn't think you were in the toilet long enough to actually use the toilet so he followed you to your car and called in your license plates and found out you were wanted for murder in Texas?

If that really happened then do you ever wonder what would have happened in your life if only you had taken longer to use the bathroom that day?

The little moments in life that can prove so critical and change the course of our lives forever.

very truly,

I didn't mean the police who chased you came out of McDonalds. I'm saying that you went into a McDonalds bathroom in Pascagula, Mississippi but you came out of the bathroom so fast that a state trooper was suspicious and he followed you out and called in your license plate. By the time it came back telling him that you were wanted for murder you had left. So then all the police in the area went on alert to look for you. It was a rookie state trooper named Trooper Lamb who discovered you and gave chase. After many minutes of driving erratically you pulled over. Lamb tried to cuff you but was so nervous he couldnt get your cuffs on until a 2nd trooper arrived and assisted him placing you in cuffs. So my question to you was 1. Where the hell were driving to? and 2. Do you ever wonder if you had just taken more time in the McDonald's bathroom that day that you might have gotten away?
