Railroad killer suspect sends TV station letter

HOUSTON -- Ignoring legal advice, multiple murder defendant Angel Maturino Resendiz sent a rambling letter to a television station, touching on topics ranging from why he surrenderd to how much he loves his dogs.

In the 11-page letter recived by Houston station KTRK, Maturino Resendiz didn't discuss the string of killing across three states that put him on the FBI's Most Wanted List, but he did make an ominous reference to a "creature" inside him that scares him.

Written in English, the letter contains numerous spelling and grammatical errors. KTRK aired segments about the letter in newscasts on Thursday and Friday. The station got the letter Thursday and verified its authenticity by checking a mail receipt from the Harris County Jail.

Perhaps the most striking passage written by the drifter from Mexico was about an inner demon, which he calls his "enemy."

"My wife has a flourescent (sic) black light. We turn off all the lights, on the the black light. I was so afraid as never before as I look in the mirror, my enemy was me in a different light," he wrote.

"I have been fighting this creature all of my life, and now I know it is me, so I fear, yes I fear and shake," he wrote.
