It’s a bit of a disturbing read, as his daughter neglects to even refer to the lives lost and negatively impacted by the confessed GSK’s cruel acts. Throughout the entire letter she recounts all the positive gestures her father has made in hers and her daughter’s lives, which of course doesn’t negate the horrific effect this serial killer has had on the lives of his over 50 victims and their families.
