Thinking about writing to someone on Death Row? Our list of inmates requesting pen pals far exceeds people to write to them.
Think about becoming a pen pal. For more information or to request a pen pal, write to the Campaign to End the Death Penalty, attention to the national pen pal coordinator.
To whom it may concern:
I am writing because I am interested in receiving a pen pal.
I am 29 years old, and I’ve been on death row for 10 years.
I was born in Daytona Beach, Florida, and I attended high school at Father Flanagan’s Boys Home (Boys Town) in Omaha, Nebraska.
From there, I went on to receive an athletic scholarship to a college in Kansas.
It was during this time that I came to Las Vegas to visit a friend and ended up making the greatest mistake of my life.
My interests are reading novels, writing short stories, drawing, and anything that involves sports.
I won’t bore you and mention how my family and so-called friends have deserted me through this trying time because that’s pretty much a given to anyone who’s on death row.
Thank you very much for your assistance and for caring.
