Letter from Derrick Todd Lee regarding the selling of his artwork being investigated
LOUISIANA (FOX44) — A letter sent by suspected serial killer Derrick Todd Lee is being investigated by the Department of Corrections.
In the letter, Lee is alleged to be telling the co-founder of SerialKillersInk.net how she can get a hold of the paintings he's drawn, and how to wire him money for that art.
Warden Burl Cain says Lee is on death row for a reason and he shouldn't make money off his criminal past.
"We weren't looking for paintings in the past, we were looking for weapons to keep the prison safe. Now we're going to expand, because it's important,” stated Cain. “It’s crazy. People are sick to sell it and sick to buy it."
Derrick Todd Lee was linked by DNA to the deaths of seven women in the Baton Rouge and Lafayette areas in Louisiana.
In 2004 he was convicted for two of them.
