This auction is for a letter from New York's deceased "Genesee River Killer" Arthur John Shawcross (6/6/1945 – 11/10/2008). After returning home from serving in the Vietnam in 1972 Shawcross murdered two young children. He would take a deal, pleading guilty to the murder of a young boy. The rape and murder of a young girl was unanswered. After serving 12 years he was paroled and went on to kill at least 11 women, most of whom were prostitutes. He received multiple life sentences for the murders. After complaining of leg pain on 11/10/2008, Shawcross was taken to an outside hospital, where he died that evening. He was 63.
ITEM DESCRIPTION: The missive is two pages on one sheet, dated 5/13/2005, and signed, "Art." In the letter Shawcross mentions Charles Manson, but the bulk of the content details his crimes. Shawcross didn't always go on at length about his crimes, in fact it was more the exception rather than the rule. He also goes into religion, "Religion is not in me. I might worship the Big Man downstairs or the one above. Neither has shown me anything that was right in anyway. Religion is nothing but a control for the messes!!!" I know who Shawcross got "the Big Man downstairs" line from. The original mailing envelope, that looks like a five-year-old opened, is postmarked 5/16/2005. The letter and envelope come inside a protective magazine sleeve with an acid free board and have been stored flat. Message me with any questions you might have. Thanks for having a look-see.
