This auction is for a letter from condemned California "Sunset Strip Slayer" Douglas Clark. In 1980, Clark, with accomplice Carol Bundy, went on a sadistic murder spree targeting mostly young girls for rape and murder. The case has elements of necrophilia. The pair are credited with killing at least seven victims. Bundy ended up being the weak link and started a dialogue with law enforcement that resulted in their arrest. Clark claimed he was innocent, with little to no knowledge of the of the crimes seemingly to be happening all around him. Bundy struck a deal with prosecutors in order to escape the death penalty, which Clark received in 1983 with her testimony. Clark continues to maintain his innocence. Bundy died of natural causes while serving life in prison in 2003.
ITEM DESCRIPTION: The missive is four pages on three sheets, dated 12/28, and is signed, "Douglas." Lots of discussion about the "Sunset Stripe" murders here. Clark has also enclosed two comics cut out of a newspaper. The original mailing envelope is postmarked 12/30/1934, which is obviously a mistake. Based on Clark's housing assignment and the price of the postage stamp this was likely mailed in 2004. 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.
